I trust that you are all doing well and taking every precaution to keep safe. Thank you for your support over the first half of the Easter Term and I wish for you all the best for the five weeks which remain in the term.
I wish to update you on the arrangements for the reopening of school following the mid-term break. According to Bulletin 33-2022 dated March 1, 2022, and issued by the Ministry of Education, classroom spacing restrictions have been lifted, clearing the way for the resumption of full face-to-face teaching and learning after the mid-term holidays, beginning March 7, 2022. Consequently, all students will physically attend school every day from Monday to Friday of each week as obtained before the pandemic. Kindly note that Covid-19 still remains a serious public health challenge and we are all required to demonstrate individual responsibility in managing our interactions for the common good. Therefore, we urge you to impress upon your son(s) the need to exercise caution at all times, by wearing their masks, and by washing/sanitizing their hands regularly. This also means that there will be adjustments to the way we currently operate at school in the physical space to reduce congregating in large numbers. To this end, I am appealing to all students to cooperate with the staff and student leaders.
Please be reminded of the following:
- Boarders will return to school after the half-term break on Sunday, March 6, 2022 between 1:00 p.m. and 4: 30 p.m. Outing Weekend # 2 will be observed from March 25 – 27, 2022.
- Classes will begin face-to-face for all students on Monday, March 7, 2022.
- Parent Teacher Association (PTA) meeting will be held via Zoom on Thursday March 10, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. A link for the meeting will be shared in short order.
- By now, the school fees and boarding fees (for boarders) should have been paid. However, if this has not been done as yet, please do so before returning to the campus.
Reminder: You can pay your school fee and boarding fee using (1) the Renweb’s Honorepay platform, or (2) at a Lasco Financial Services outlet. If you choose to use the traditional method of paying at NCB (Acc. # 891008449), then proof of payment must be uploaded and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and should also be retained for on campus registration when school reopens.
- All students are required to have a Munro College Identification Card (ID) that will not expire before the end of the academic year. Photographs will be taken immediately after the half term. This process will begin with the Fifth Form cohort. The cost of the school identification card is $900, and this is to be paid at the Administrative Office. If you have not already done so, kindly make arrangements for payment.
- Again, we encourage you to counsel your son(s) regarding conforming to the school’s dress/uniform, hair, speech rules/requirements, along with ensuring their general behaviour and deportment are consistent with the school’s expectations. The school will take a zero tolerance approach to unkempt hair or ‘high’ hair with faded sides. (Hair must be low cut and on one level).
- Only Sixth Form students are allowed to bring phones to school. Therefore, students from Forms 1 – 5 must never be seen with phones; otherwise, they will be confiscated. The only devices allowed for classes are electronic tablets and laptops.
We look forward to your continued support throughout the rest of the term.
