Last Thursday evening, Mrs Mizzi and I had the pleasure of hosting a zoom for our Kinder 2022 families. It was great to be able to welcome them to MIPS even though it was online. We were able to go over many of the points of information they require in preparation for the start of school. It was wonderful to see the new Kindies with their MIPS t-shirts on. They looked so proud and ready for school. Obviously we have not been able to implement our usual comprehensive orientation programme but we are taking steps to do what we can to make them feel welcome.
Our students continue to love being back at school with their friends. Some are struggling to get back into some of the routines of school life as are some of the folks.
Thank you for supporting the end of day dismissal procedures we have implemented. The level of cooperation from our families has been exemplary. I am hearing from some families that the earlier dismissal is a bit of a problem because they have made their work and other arrangements around our usual 3:20pm dismissal time. Our staggered dismissal is working well and it is now time to return the timing closer to our usual times. This will help reduce congestion in the area as it separates us the bit further from Barnier Public’s dismissal times. Commencing today, Kinder, Year 1 and Year 2 will be dismissed at 3:10pm and Years 3 to 6 at 3:20pm, all in the usual locations. This was posted earlier on Skoolbag.
With appreciation for your ongoing support,
