Dear Parents and Students,

Ms Nour, Ms. Gloria and Ms. Irene welcome you to the 2019-2020 academic year. We understand that the students’ transition from Year 7 to Year 8 can be exciting. However, we believe that with your dedication, commitment and hard work we will provide a high quality learning environment and we are looking forward to a wonderful and successful year.

The Year 8 students are following the Mathematics Course book - Cambridge Checkpoint, Year 8, focusing on a number of skills that are distributed through Term 1, Term 2 and Term 3.

Success in this class is based on many aspects; the most important of which are a student's attendance, participation in class, and following up at home. If as a student you are confused, please make sure you ask questions during or after class. We have an open door policy at all times.

Finally, please note that the best way to know what is happening in our Mathematics classes is to check our Year 8 Math Google site or the Google classroom. For further questions, or if you would like to make an appointment with your son's/daughter's teacher, please contact the secondary school secretary to set a date.

Thank you, and we wish you the best of luck for the academic year ahead.

Ms. Nour:
