On your First Day
We understand that it can be both an exciting and nervous time for our parents and students, so we have prepared some guidance for your first day making it a smooth and easy transition for you and your child.
Things your child should bring on their first day
We understand that the first day at school, or at a new school, never mind in some cases a new country, can be daunting for both you and your child. To help things go as smoothly as possible, and to avoid any last-minute panics over pencil cases, uniforms to transportation, we've collated a checklist of everything your child needs to bring on their first day...and beyond. We've also included some other useful information to help with the transition.
