           A new Accounts Manager has been appointed. He is Mr. Frank Zulu. Mr. Zulu comes to LICS
     with experience in both the corporate and social service sectors. We welcome him to the School.

                                           Secondary School Play

                                              Missing/ Stolen Property
            We are suffering from a rash of missing and, in some cases, stolen property. Pupils’ belong-
     ings, textbooks, uniforms, and other items, are missing. Money, documents, and other personal prop-
     erty have been stolen. Unfortunately, there is little information coming forward, information we need
     to curtail this disturbing trend. I appeal to everyone in the school community, parents, students, staff
     members, to be very careful with your belongings and, if you have information about lost or stolen
     property, to see me immediately.

                                          Term 2 Tuition Payments
           Thanks to all families who have paid Term 2 tuitions. There are still some outstanding, how-
     ever. We ask all who have not paid or who are behind in payments to speak with the Accounts Man-
     ager immediately. Please note that outstanding Term 2 amounts must be cleared before the end of
     the Term.

                                          End-of-Term Break: Term 2
            School closes for the Term 2 Break and Easter on Friday, April 15 at noon. School re-opens
     after the Break on Tuesday, May 3 at 07:30

                                      Next School Board Meeting
          The next scheduled meeting of the School Board is Tuesday, April 5 at 17:30.
