Dear Parents and Students (who now receive the newsletter too),
We are over half way through this half term and whilst there is no snow yet down here in Geneva we have started to prepare for the Christmas season. The Primary and Secondary parent calendars contain all the exciting events and activities leading up to the holiday.
The School’s AGM will take place via Zoom on Monday 5 December between 19:00-20:00. This is your opportunity as parents to hear from the Board about the work they have done and I will be feeding back the findings from Mungo Dunnett and Associates and our actions in response to this. Final details will be shared next week.
We are looking forward to seeing KS3 (Years 7 to 9) at the disco at Secondary tonight (watch this space for party photos next week), as well as their parents for a social and screening of the England vs USA football match – there is still time to RSVP if you haven’t done so already.
Just a reminder that Mr Vavrecka is doing a “Countdown to Christmas” Holiday Camp for the first few days of the Christmas break. You can sign up your children here.
We have not yet hit our 2000 CHF Movember collection goal and there are only a couple of days left. Here is the Movember Just Giving link again should you wish to raise money for a good cause. As last year, we would love to celebrate any members of our community who have been growing moustaches and feature you in next Friday’s newsletter. Please share your picture(s) with Stephanie Pillot ([email protected]).
We understand that certain nurseries nearby have unfortunately had to close. If your friends, neighbours or colleagues are now looking for Pre-School places for their children (age 3 upwards), do pass on Alice’s details ([email protected]) and she will be happy to help them with arranging a visit to GES.
Finally, best of luck to two of our Year 13 students who have interviews at Cambridge next week, we will all be thinking of you and wishing you all the very best.
Have a good weekend,
