A Very Special Welcome to The 2017-2018 School Year


Welcome back to a new school year, 2017-2018. I trust everyone has had a wonderful summer break with lots of rest and opportunities to enjoy numerous activities with your friends and family. The staff and I are looking forward to another exciting, productive and successful school year.

As educators, we look forward to educating your children, and appreciate that you are entrusting them in our care. This is a privilege we accept with great responsibility and we will continue to work towards maintaining your trust. I believe that the Foley staff, parents and students will continue to work closely together in a spirit of open communication, so that we can continue to grow as a Christ-centered learning community. Our consistent effort to support the student’s endeavors, academically, socially and spiritually throughout the year, will ensure optimum success for all. As we begin the new school year as a school community, we pray for the health and safety of all our families and staff.

Welcome back to all our pupils for the 2017-2018 School Year, especially our 2 new Primary 5 pupils and our new Primary 1 Pupils, all 18 of them!

School commences on Friday 1st of September with supervision starting from 9.00am. Classes commence at 9.15am and we would request that all pupils are on-site by 9.10am for morning assembly. Please wear full school uniform on this day.

School finishes for P1-P3 pupils at 2.00pm and for P4-P7 pupils at 3.00pm.

Parents are reminded that full school uniform is to be worn on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday of each week with Wednesday and Friday being the normal PE days when PE uniform is worn.

A full and comprehensive list of our uniforms is available from the office on request. However it is requested that when wearing runners they are black/navy or dark coloured rather than fluorescent colours and that when wearing tracksuit bottoms these are plain navy with no logos or advertising.

Please stop by and say hello at any time and please support our sponsors and business partners who support the school through their advertising on our website each year. We are truly thankful for their on-going support. Together, I know we will make this school year one of continued growth and achievement for all our children.

Warmest Regards
