Cambridge November A.S. and A.L. results were out on Wednesday and although these are still being analyzed we are very happy with them. Our A.L. pass rate is up from last year and our A.S. seems a little lower, but the number of 100% pass rate in subjects is up from 2017, as well as the quality of symbols. The I.G.C.S.E. results are out on Wednesday when the Lower 6th students are back from their camp. Details of results will be given at our Academic Assembly on Friday 16th February just prior to our Fixture Free Weekend. At this stage we would like to thank the staff for all the hard work they have put in to achieve these very commendable results.
Please be advised that the closing date for registration for those who wish to write Cambridge May/June exams is 9th February 2018. Forms can be collected from the front office.
Once again we appeal to parents to support the systems within Girls' College, by trying to build up your daughters confidence, by making them accountable if they have been found wanting, to allow them to express their concerns, to guide them with their making of friends, to control their internet usage by being involved in what they are doing, by encouraging them to abide by the rules of the school and your home and letting them know that your love is unconditional.
We have a very busy term with many events and ask you to please download the calendar which can be found on our webpage (www.girlscollegebulawayo.org). We invite you to join us for these events. Your daughters do enjoy parental presence, even though they might not say so!
Wishing you all a happy and prosperous 2018.
