FRIDAY 3 May 2019
Dear Parents

I understand that drop off and pick up times at school are very busy and congested. May I remind you of your “parking manners”. Please do not park in any of the driveways in Fir and Duke Road. Please do not park on yellow lines or in front of the bollards at the Fir Road gate. Remember that the gates into the Rossall side of the campus will be closed in the early morning and at the end of the day. Make sure your son gets out of your car onto the pavement and not into the road. Let us try to use Fir road as a one way from Duke Road to Belmont Road at our peak times. Remind your sons to be very watchful when crossing any roads or entering through the school gates. We will continue to remind your boys about how and where to cross when walking up to sport and to always walk to the College in groups and never on their own.

The four-day weeks, while enjoyed by all, are very disruptive in terms of academics and sport. If your son is ill, and therefore absent, please email kkerven@bishops.org.za and copy your son’s class teacher, Housemaster and staff member coaching in his age group.

We wish our Muslim families Ramadan Mubarak, as they enter the Holy Month of Ramadan next week.

I wish you all a lovely weekend.

Kind regards

Rob Riches
Deputy Headmaster

The weather may be cold but the hospitality has been very warm for our boys on Dulwich Exchange.

They have also spent time at Dulwich Prep school and experienced their wonderful teachers and facilities. Please find more photos on our Facebook Page.
