Greetings from Siliguri. The Internet is not available in the hills and as a result we have come down for a few hours to carry out some work for the board, etc.
As you may be aware, the Puja Vacation has been shortened. While students can leave on 23rd September 2017, they need to return on 2nd October 2017. We shall resume classes on 3rd October 2017. Please note that it is not mandatory for students of class 8 and below to go home during the vacation, however, it is compulsory for students of class 9 and above to go home.
Considering the amount of time we have lost, the Diwali holidays have been cancelled. Further, we shall be working for an extra 2-3 weeks in December. The exact date of the completion of the academic year will be informed to you before the Puja Vacation. I request all parents to proceed with paying the fees of the 3rd Installment. However, please wait for the school to inform you about the payment of the 4th Installment.
Many parents have been apprehensive about the syllabus that has to be covered. I would like to bring to your notice that we are in the process of completing every chapter in every class. All details required by a student for the next class will be covered. Further, we may not have the same amount of time we have had for revision as we have had in the past but we will have to make do with what is available to us.
Dear parents, the last 3 months have had a huge impact on all schools in the hills and for no fault of our own. I thank you for still putting your faith and trust in us. It is my sincere hope that you will continue to do so for your child and to further speak highly of our school so that other parents of your area can also avail of what our institution can offer.
We look forward to your continued co-operation,
Br. Robert Fernandes
