Welcome to Secondary Homepage
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back to school after the winter holidays. It is time to jump right back into our studies as the Arabic Exams begin on January 13th, 2019 for some classes. Listed below is the exam schedule and study hall schedule for Wednesday, January 23rd – Tuesday, January 29th. Students in Grades 9-12 are reminded that they must return the textbooks to the resource room on the day of the exam and make sure they have no outstanding books for the start of Semester 2. Grades 7-8 students and all English students are reminded to keep their notes and binders as they will need them for the final exam in June. Please note that all exams begin promptly at 10:05am with the exception of the Grade 12 Provincial Exams. We also ask that if your son or daughter is leaving after the exams please send a note to reception informing them that your child is allowed to leave.

Time is of the essence.
Are your kids ever late to school? Do they think that missing a day here and there has no relevance whatsoever on their studies? Well, think again.
The following chart is a clear-as-crystal proof that when it comes to education, the “time is of the essence” adage rings especially true.
Parents, it is of utmost importance that your children arrive to school between 8 and 8:15 am, in time for school assembly at 8:20 and for class at 8:30. Do understand that 8:30 is not the target hour. 8 o’clock should be your aim as proper arrival time at school, so they can be mentally ready and prepared for the day ahead.
Not only does lateness create disruption in the class when a late student enters, but it is detrimental to their own learning, and consequently to a certain extent their marks and grades.
For example, if a student comes to school late 10 minutes every day, that amounts to 50 minutes a week, which is nearly a week and a half of class time missed. Over 13 years of schooling, that’s nearly a year and a half of absence! Some are of the mind that nothing much happens at the start of the day. Not true! The first 10 minutes of a class sets the tone for what’s ahead, as lessons naturally begin right away.
So please, parents, make sure that your children are in compliance with this most important and crucial aspect of their education. Punctuality is of the essence.
At your service always,
The Heritage International School Principals
