Dear  Parents

 

Thank you so much to the parents who have respected our request, not to wait outside the classrooms at the end of the day and also to those parents who are letting their boys walk into the school on their own. By this time of the year, they are more than capable of coming in independently. Parents may visit the classrooms on a Friday with pleasure.

Please take some time to register on MyBishopsLife Pre Prep if you have not already done so. To all the new Grade N and R parents, please visit our website and take time to register. We are busy uploading photographs of the boys and their school reports will be released on MyBishopsLife at the end of this term. Those parents, who have already signed up, please check that your password is working and that you do have access before the end of the term, in order for you to access your reports as well.

Tag rugby on a Saturday is over for this term.  We look forward to the Friday afternoons of tag and our little introductory tag tournament @ Bishops on 23 June from 13:00 -14:00. Come along and support your teams as they experience an introduction to matches.  Some boys find this quite a challenge.

Tag Tournament @ Bishops Pre-prep 13:00 - 14:00

This is making wonderful progress. The boys are thoroughly enjoying learning the songs and I can assure you that this is going to be a bumper production.

Parents please note that boys are not excused from sport due to parties or playdates. School activities take preference over playdates and parties and we therefore ask parents to please only organise these after 14:15 once school activities are over.

We wish Mrs Rheeder a speedy recovery after having an operation on her foot. We hope to see her up and about soon.  The boys are in the capable hands of Mrs Nureen Maged while she is away. Should you have any queries please email Nureen on nmaged@bishops.org.za

From the Bishops Trust: "The Extra Term bursary programme has been extremely successful since itís pilot in 2016 and to date we have been able to offer 9 boys a Bishops education; deserving boys who would ordinarily not be able to afford this excellent education.

 

This programme offers Parents, Past Parent, ODs and Corporates the opportunity to support a boy through his time at College.  An optional mentorship programme allows the donor to meet and form a relationship with the boy (subject to certain guidelines) and both the school and beneficiary will keep you updated on his progress. Please see here for additional information or should you wish to pledge your support to a 2018 candidate.

 

Wishing you all a peaceful weekend ahead.

Yours sincerely,
