Memorandum for parents

The Memorandum is a handbook for the parents of our students. In it can be found information, details, and explanations about a child’s schooling and about daily routines and procedures.

Students in the Nursery-Primary and Secondary School cycles will be expected to follow the internal school rules, or Rules of Procedure. These are a series of rights and obligations that are discussed within the Educational Council. They are designed to ensure mutual respect among all members of the school community and allow for the smooth functioning of daily school operations.
