Dear Parents,

As part of our school-wide initiative to promote mental health and well-being, an introductory Mental Health Awareness session was held for students during the week of February 18 - 22, 2019.

The purpose of the sessions was to help students: 

  • develop a basic understanding of mental health and mental health problems
  • understand the difference between everyday feelings and overwhelming feelings
  • brainstorm ways to manage their own mental health 
  • know how and who to ask for help and support at school and outside of school 

The sessions were given by Miss Rita Maroun, a Child and Adolescent Psychologist.

We believe that helping our children develop ways to look after their mental health can help them cope with normal life stresses, thrive in their development, and realize their potential. We look forward to working with you in this endeavor during the rest of the academic year.

Dear Parents,

Since head lice are a common reoccurring problem every year. We kindly ask you to screen your children regularly. Head lice can spread rapidly if left unchecked. By early detection, we may limit its spread.

Head lice should be suspected when there is intense itching and scratching of the scalp and the back of the neck.  Head lice are common and not indicative of poor hygiene.

In case lice are detected, the child needs to start the needed treatment and stay at home until the scalp is completely lice free.

Kindly note that according to the student’s handbook, student’s hair must be trim, clean and neatly groomed. Girls are expected to tie their long hair and boys to have short hair. 

Thank you for your cooperation.
