Dear Parents and Guardians
This letter serves to inform you that we have just received information that a member of our school community has tested Positive for the Covid-19 virus.
It is therefore prudent that as a school we take immediate action to control the situation by closing the school with immediate effect. It is unfortunate that we have had to take this action, but we feel it Is in the best interest of our community.
Our Year 7 classes will continue with their ZIMSEC examinations. They should be brought to school at 7:45 am. and they should be picked up soon after their exams.
Boarders may be collected from Acacia House starting on Wednesday 1″ December 2021 from 800 am.
The end of year school reports will be sent via email in due course.
We would like to thank you for your support throughout the year.
We wish you happy holidays Stay Safe!
