Survey of Student Eating Habits

Students were surveyed last week about their breakfast habits. We are pleased that most of our students appear to be eating something healthy before coming to school. Some, however, do not. We appeal to all parents/guardians to ensure that their children get up in time to enjoy a proper breakfast before they start their journey to school, and that appropriate arrangements are also made for their lunch and evening meal.

The PTA will be providing a trial breakfast club on Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning next week. This is primarily intended for those who, through no fault of their own, regularly miss something to eat before leaving for school. The service will be reviewed after two weeks and further feedback will then be provided to parents.

National Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving Service

Many thanks to those students that represented the Collegiate so well at the National Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving Service yesterday.

Options Survey

All students in years 7, 8, 9 and 10 are reminded that the IGCSE survey should be returned by tomorrow at the latest.

Second Annual Heritage Quiz

BWIC will be hosting the second annual schools heritage quiz tomorrow, bringing us student and teacher visitors from across the TCI.
