OUR FIRST SCHOOL NEWSLETTER
It is with great pleasure that we send you our first school newsletter, one of many. We pride ourselves in providing information to all parents as often and as current as possible. It is part of our ethos at EIFA that parents are to be kept informed about the school in general, the academic progress and well-being of their children and the wider school community.
Being a new school, in a new building has brought many a challenge, as you can all imagine. Building work is still being carried out and at great speed. We are impressed with the professionalism and expertise of our architects and building contractors. They understand very well our deadlines and are working diligently to have the school ready for our January opening.
However, due unforeseen event out of our control, we are, regrettably, unable to offer a parent evening in December as previously mentioned to you all, due to health and safety issue. We understand that this additional work in the building should not delay the school opening.
But please go see the school website under Staff. We have added the biography of your child’s teachers and other staff members.
On a similar note, for all children who are starting with us in January, you will receive shortly an email asking you to confirm your child place and to pay the deposit. In the meantime we suggest that you start gathering the necessary documentation as follows (one per child):
- School records and official transcripts from previous school (school records, in French or English, for the past three years, where applicable)
- One photograph of applicant
- Copy of child’s passport or birth certificate
I should be also grateful if you could confirm whether you intend to use the bus service provided by the school. Fees will depend on the number of intakes; the more there are children using the service, less the cost will be for all. As it stands right now, the fee for a door-to-door service is at £750/term/child, but if there are less than 8 children using the service, the fee would be approximately £1,100.
We will, of course, keep you inform on developments, as they happened.
We look forward to seeing you all in January.
Head of School
