OPENING OF TERM ONE CIRCULAR 2018

Dear Parent/Guardian,

RE: OPENING OF TERM ONE 2018 CIRCULAR

Happy New Year to you all and thank you for entrusting us with your children. You are most welcome back from the holiday and warm greetings from the Directors and the entire family of Entebbe Junior Primary School. In a special  way, allow us to welcome all our new pupils and parents to our fraternity.

Kindly take note of the following:-

  1. Please report to the Bursar and pay for the ream of paper (P.1 – P.7) and counter books (P.5 – P.7). You will present the receipt to the class teachers of your child(ren)for recording purposes.
  2. All pupils should have their property labelled at the uniform store at 3,000/=. This will help to reduce losses and make it easy for identification.
  3. The swimming programme will continue and parents who wish their child(ren) to go for swimming can pay Ugx. 100,000 (one hundred thousand shillings only) to the school Bursar per term. We shall enlist specialists in Taekwondo, Ballet and Skating at a fee. If your wish your child to participate in these activities, you will pay Ugx. 150,000 per term for the activity of your choice. Let the classteacher register your child if you wish him/her to take part in one of the above activities.
  4. Get your child a visiting card from the Secretary. People you send to pick up your children should carry it along at all times.
  5. Parents with children for First Holy Communion, Confirmation, and Solemn Holy Communion are requested to register either with Mr. Obenet Justin or the Administrative Assistant. You should register immediately to avoid disappointments. Roman Catholic candidates must register not later than Tuesday, 13th February, 2018. Pupils who are due for confirmation in the Anglican faith can also register with the above teacher.
  6. The Board of Directors has extended a discount of Ugx. 50,000 (Fifty thousand shillings) on every child’s tuition fees for parents with more than three children in the school. Concerned parents should meet the headteacher to effect that arrangement.
  7. We discourage private coaching arrangements in the school. If you have any academic concerns for your child, approach the headteacher’s or Director of Studies’ office for remedies.
  1. We shall have our annual French Day celebrations on Saturday, 24th March, 2018. The function will run from 10:00 am -1:00 pm and you are all invited to attend. For this day, we will be focusing on France as a country. We kindly urge you to come dressed according to the French colours which are red, blue and white.
