In week seven, another parent and teachers conference was held at the school. The conference was conducted in the classrooms by the class patron of the different respective classes. The parents of each student were given a specific time to come to school and an allotted time to confer with the class teacher about their child’s performance in school. The conference provided the parents with information relating to their child’s academic progress and disciplinary or behavioural issues. It started around 8:00 a.m. and finished in the afternoon.


PHS had the launching of the new reading books on the first week of term three. More than five hundred books were put on display on a set-up library in the basketball court.

They simply cannot wait to read all the new books.
