October 2022 Edition

The month of October began with a lot of excitement after the public holiday (National Day). Students Representative Council (SRC) Campaign, elections , First Continuous Assessment Tests (CATs) and our Parent Teacher Conference are the major events that occurred in the month of October .



Continuous Assessment Test (CAT)

Our first continuous assessment tests were taken in the month of October. College students put in a lot of effort and produced brilliant results as they look forward to making the honour roll at the end of the term..

Parent Teacher Conference (PTC)

Teachers meet with each student's parents to discuss academic growth and progress based on classroom observations, test results, assessments, portfolios, and assignments; to learn from parents about their children's strengths, needs, behaviors, and learning preferences; and to talk about enrichment or intervention strategies to support students' learning. We had a fruitful PTC and are eager to put every tactic to use to bring out the best in our students.

Safety Tips for Teens

Teenage life is a phase full of energy, hope, life, joy, beauty, and passion. Despite many advantages, being a teenager in today’s world is not easy. Teenagers face many challenges, making right decisions, choosing right environment and people, and expressing emotions, etc. Staying safe is really important as you go about your daily activities. Here are a few safety tips to adopt:

Don't go out alone. Think about it before you go. Remember, if you can avoid situations that put you at risk in the first place, you are already one step ahead.

Always tell an adult where you are going. Letting someone know where you will be at all times is smart. If you are ever faced with a risky situation or get into trouble, your family and friends will know where to find you. If no one is at home, leave a note stating where you are going, with whom and the approximate time you are coming home. Also, never leave home angry and never get behind the wheel of a car when you are upset.

Say no if you feel threatened. Teenagers face a lot of different situations today that put them in uncomfortable spots. You are constantly having to make decisions for yourself. Listen to your intuition and follow your best judgment. If your friends are making bad decisions, you don't have to. Have the confidence to say NO if anyone makes you feel uncomfortable about anything.

You can’t trust anyone you don’t know. If a man or woman approaches you in public and asks for money, a ride, directions or anything else, you don’t have to engage with them. STAY ALERT!

Remember… EVERYTHING you post online is permanent – it never really goes away! After posting something, anyone can screenshot it, save it and re-post it later. Think twice before you post ANYTHING. Remember, many employers now check social media profiles when hiring. If it’s not something you’d want your mom to see, don’t post it.

Never meet with anyone you “just met” on the internet. If someone asks to meet you, tell your parents or guardian right away. Some people may not be who they say they are.

You're SMART and STRONG and ready to TAKE ON THE WORLD. Go do it!
