Dear Parents,

 

I would like to start my letter this week by thanking you all for your diligence in respecting our protocols during this difficult time. Indeed, it is because of this and our staff’s and pupils’ equal pragmatism that we have been able to handle our first COVID case within our community with such calm and prudence. As I mentioned in my message to you on Tuesday, we take the health, safety and wellbeing of our whole community with the utmost seriousness. So I am immensely proud of how our community has come together in its support, not only of the government guidelines, but also of the extra measures we at KCM put in place within our bubbles for older pupils. Although, these may have seemed very strict, they have proven to be effective in enabling our students to continue their learning with some degree of normality.

 

Our student council has also been most helpful with their suggestions, especially within the dining hall. Thus far, our systems for containing bubbles within the dining room have been hugely successful, but there is always room for improvement. Together with the council, we are now looking at how we can reduce plastic waste from water bottles, whilst maintaining cleanliness and health & safety protocols. Again, another example of our excellent students supporting the community.

 

A few notices….

Protocols and Disclaimer

A further reminder that, if you have not done so already, please could you respond as soon as possible to the Google Form shared with you on 8th September regarding our new protocols. This form is used to let us know that you have read the protocols that we have put in place and agree to them. Many thanks for your help in this matter. Link

Class Presentations

I trust you have found this week’s presentations informative and have enjoyed the opportunity to ask questions online during the Q&A session. We will, of course, be holding more of these throughout the year to ensure good lines of communication.

Shop Closure

A brief note to let you know that the school shop will be closed  from Friday 25th September to Tuesday 13th October. After which time the usual appointment system will continue. Many thanks for your understanding in this matter.

Congratulations must go to our newly appointed Head Boy and Head Girl, Joaquin and Carmen. I am sure they will lead and represent our student body admirably. I would also like to thank all the other candidates who submitted their presentations and to congratulate them on a hard fought election campaign.They will be joining Joaquin and Carmen as deputies, prefects and representatives in the school council.

Have a great weekend and see you again on Monday.
