Time to reserve places for September 2009
This week, letters have been distributed to all Morna International College parents requesting the deposit to reserve places for next academic year. Places are automatically reserved on payment of this deposit and there is no need to inform the school in any other way if your children are continuing next year. If your children will not be continuing, please inform the office so that the deposit will not be charged. These places will then become available to new applicants or children on the waiting list. If anyone did not receive this letter please contact the office. Students reserving places in Years 12 and 13 should be aware that these places depend on satisfactory performance in external examinations. Entry into Year 11 is also subject to satisfactory performance in the internal Year 10 examinations.

Wednesday 18th March 2009, 14:15 to 15:45.

Dear parents,

Next Wednesday (18th March) the school will be organizing an open afternoon, to which you are all invited and encouraged to attend.

Displays and demonstrations involving pupils and teachers will be set up in all classrooms and visitors may circulate freely around all sections of the school. This provides an opportunity to see some good examples of educational activities across the whole age range, not just in your own children’s classes.

Parents are welcome to bring other guests such as friends who might be interested in seeing the school. (If guests arrive separately from the parents who have invited them they should carry some sort of identification).

Our year 12 pupils will be giving guided tours of the school and light refreshments will be available.

Yours truly,

Adrian Massam
