Starting School

Please help to prepare your child for school by taking him to visit friends, and make sure that he is happy to be left with people other than those at home. We like to ensure that your child’s first school experience is a happy one. With the younger age group it is easier for the small child to first feel confident in the new environment with a parent present. Parents are therefore welcome to stay for short periods of time with their child, for the first two days (during the afternoons) when starting school.

When you bring your child to school, please tell him where you are going and that you will return to pick him up. It is strongly advised that you make this parting as brief as possible, so that your child can settle more quickly. After two or three days of attending school, in this way, parents are asked to bring their children to the cloakroom area and leave him or her with the teacher on duty outside. This ensures that the children already at work inside will not be disturbed by the presence of other parents. We will take the greatest care of your child.

If your child is to be collected by someone other than yourself or spouse, please inform the staff.

The children’s health and diet are carefully monitored by the staff. Each child is requested to pay a contribution of 5 rupees (per day – morning children or 8 rupees, afternoon children) for a helping of fresh local fruit and other snack options; cornflakes, crackers, yoghurt or bread sandwiches, provided and prepared at school.  Parents are requested to send a bottle of water, fruit juice or milk for their child to drink with their snack.

Afternoon children may order lunch, which should be paid for one term in advance, at 19 rupees per meal, or bring their own food daily.
