To: All Parents, Guardians, Students, Teachers and Supporters,
Subject: ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, INFORMATION REMINDERS & NOTICES.
May I take this opportunity on behalf of the Board of Management (BOM) and the School Administration, the member of staffs and students to publicly acknowledge our gratitude to our good parents, guardians and Supporters for your contributions and help given to SDTC on this Semester 1 of 2013.
On a personal note, the road Sir Dudley Tuti College has taken since January 2013 to date has not been easy and calm. However, as we determined to journey on from now and into the second semester exploring the unseen, let us re-examine, re-evaluate and look at what we achieved and experienced in the past 5 to 6 months. I believe this has been a rough, challenging, interesting and exciting road that has became part of Sir Dudley Tuti College history of which, BOM members, administrators, teachers, students and parents would love to know, value it and would laugh about it, if I may add.
This semester has been a rewarding, good and successful one for both Staff and students, regardless of the sizeable and intangible achievement we produce. As such, we hope to see that our unity, commitments and efforts will continue to grow and even stronger in Semester 2 and thereafter.
Be that as it may, I am profoundly honoured to inform our good parents, guardians and supporters the following important information, reminders and notices:
