We congratulate Teacher Claudine on the birth of her beautiful baby girl (Ebubechi Deborah) on Saturday 15 October, and wish her and her new bundle of joy, many blessings.
Courtney Kids International Nursery School
We welcome Melodie Kruger as the new principal of Courtney Kids. Melodie is no new-comer to Courtney House, having taught in the foundation phase many years ago, she is well aware of the Cambridge expectations as well as the standards maintained at Courtney House. She has also gained extensive experience after managing a pre-school of her own for many years. Melodie will spend some time at the Junior Campus from now until December before taking over completely in January 2017.
Primary Checkpoints Examinations
The children in Year 6 (Grade 6) write their Cambridge International Examinations (Primary Checkpoints) in English, Mathematics and Science between the 10th and 21st October. These examinations are sent from Cambridge, written at Courtney College and returned to Cambridge for evaluation and marking. Results will only be available between the 8th and 16th of December 2016. We wish them all the best.
Over the next few weeks, children will be learning about the techniques involved in creating symmetry and 3-D art.
