About 30 eager parents and guardians joined us for the Year 13-focus FE workshop for a comprehensive overview on how to guide our children for a successful university application. Our FE Counsellors provided a timeline of the impending applications deadlines for different destinations and fields of study. Attendees were also given tips on how to support our children at this crucial time, by engaging in open conversations about finances and keeping a balanced lifestyle. The slides from the workshop can be found in the presentation here.
Over 60 parents joined the RAPT coffee morning last Wednesday, 27 February. The information session, led by Secondary Principal Ms. Natasha Williams, gave an overview of the MYP and DP curricula changes scheduled to be implemented in August, 2019. The new timetable is expected to increase instruction time for DP students by 80 minutes every week, adding 22 hours of teaching time for every subject. The innovative curriculum will also provide opportunities to develop further learning in robotics, Chinese A and passion projects while not impacting the shared resources with primary.
Parents who couldn’t make it to the meeting can rest assured, here is the presentation of the information session.
Join us for our next upcoming Coffee Morning to find out more about how you can support your child(ren) at home. Click here to register your attendance.
