A message from the primary head

There are no report cards in French infant classes, so at the French Section we share students’ achievements with parents through Seesaw. This year, we also wanted to prepare a summary of everything the children have learnt so far . Thanks to the support of the TES IT department, that summary will be available via TESmile (‘Academic Results’) this evening after 5pm to parents from PS and MS. Please remember to tick the box in lieu of a signature and don’t forget to congratulate your child on their achievements. GS parents will receive the paper ‘My Achievements’ book as they have at the end of previous terms.

Next Tuesday’s parent-teacher meetings will provide you with an opportunity to discuss your child’s achievements with their class teachers in greater depth.

Ms. Carine Capel
