weekend should be received by COB Wednesdays. Students returning from an exeat on a school day must be in full school uniform, including shoes, not sandals. Gates close at 5.00pm.
Sporty Family: WOW! What a fabulous day and our best Sporty Family Day ever. The parents’ efforts have earned entry into the Adjavon Cup on 7 October (see below.) The parents who put their bodies on the line for team glory, along with parents who felt it wiser to support loudly and wildly, made it a special day. I am confident next year that some parents will heed my advice from 5 weeks ago to start training for the big day. Kudos to all for ensuring a successful event. Congratulations to Green and Yellow who were joint winners.
At the start of each semester, a Thanksgiving Service is conducted. On Sunday, 27 August, the first semester Thanksgiving Service will be conducted from 11.00am-12.30pm in the MPH. Like all school events, parents are invited and welcome to attend.
Following the Thanksgiving Service will be Visiting Sunday until 4.00pm. Visiting Sunday is an opportunity for family and food, and at first, not in that order. Visiting Sundays are scheduled throughout the year, usually once each month. If a month contains events that parents may attend at TIS, a Visiting Sunday may not be listed. For new families, tables and chairs are set up around the school and families eat and meet in different locations, including the MPH. Students look forward to their parents bringing them their favourite take-away food.
Our 10 students who continue to remain focused and calm for their external exams. It’s been another big week for them, with the first students finishing their exams this week. Many have a week or so break from exams, and will enjoy some home study before returning to school for the final exams after 4 June.

Making Us Proud
• Parents who joined us for the Semester 2 health walk last Saturday. Thank you.
• Parents who were able to attend the G11 subject selection session for Grade 10 students and their parents last Saturday. Thank you.
• The G11 girls involved in the girls’ soccer team: you are game changers and make a huge difference to the morale of the team.
• Students who nominated for student leadership positions, but were unsuccessful on this occasion. Your initiative is admired and your participation in the process has been good experience for next time. Yet remember, one of many great things about TIS is the range and variety of leadership experiences that are available from 7-12. Taking advantage of these opportunities and experiences develops your future success.

At the start of each semester, a thanksgiving service is held. Parents are invited to attend. The service will commence at 11.00am in the MPH and will conclude by 12.30pm.
For those parents whom are attending the Thanksgiving Service, you are welcome to stay on until 3.30pm and share lunch with son/daughter(s). Students enjoy anytime there is a chance for takeaway.

There is so much excitement in the school as we welcome a new
academic year, new principal, new students, new teachers, etc. We
look forward to sharing these exciting times with you.
