PARENTS NEWSLETTER – 12TH OCTOBER, 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to our first visiting day for the academic year 2019/2020. It is not only your children who are happy to see you, we the entire staff of Cherryfield College are also happy to see you as from 10.00am till 17.00pm today.

On behalf of the Management and Staff of Cherryfield College I wish you spend a very fruitful day with your children. Please talk with them about their life in school, their challenges and successes, both academics and social, and encourage them to work harder.

For our new parents, I hope you all got black garbage bags at the gate. It is our culture to keep our school clean after each visiting day. Please help us to maintain this culture by packing the refuse into the bag and leave it for onward disposal.
