Dear Parents and Guardians,

It’s getting harder to remember what a slow news day looked like.  But 89 years ago, on 18 April 1930, the BBC’s news announcer had nothing to communicate. “There is no news,” was the script of the 20:45 news bulletin, before piano music was played for the rest of the 15-minute segment. 

The wireless service then returned to broadcasting from the Queen’s Hall in Langham Place, London, where the Wagner opera Parsifal was being performed. [bbc.co.uk]

This week has been a slow news week in the High School, with exams (or the run-up to exams) taking the lion’s share of the time.  The IB Exams started well for the seniors in the Lofthouse.  Many students haven’t started yet, with their first exam on Monday next week (remember that although Monday is a public holiday here in the Philippines for elections, the show must go one when it comes to the IB).  Grade 11s started their exams in the Little Theatre on Wednesday and these will continue until next Thursday.  Grades 9 and 10 will sit their exams from Tuesday to Thursday next week.

Grade 9-10-11 exam schedules are here
Grade 12 IB exam schedule is here

Good luck to all the high school students during this busy and often stressful time of year.

And with that, I wish you all a restful and relaxing long-weekend.
