We'd like to acknowledge the unusual and relatively high number of students who transferred in from other schools this school year. The three reasons most often cited were: small classes with more individual attention, co-education and provision of extra resources. We would also like to acknowledge the extraordinary contributions our 'visiting' European students have made to school life. There's always an adjustment period and we hope you now feel that you fit in, part of the family. We are very aware that some of you, from both groups, have gone out of your way to participate in school life. Some of you have made such an impression on your teachers that you have earned a nomination for a merit award in the short time you have been with us. We'll see how you fare in May at the award ceremony.
