The School Day
Tabeetha is an English speaking school promoting Christian values and, as such, school days are Monday to Thursday from 07:55 to 14:25 for the primary; from 8.00 to 14.30 for the secondary school, and on Fridays 07:55 to 12:25 for the primary and 8.00 to 12.30 for the secondary school.
There are 180 days of schooling each session in accordance with Ministry of Education requirements during which a high attendance rate and punctuality are expected. Taking children on holiday during term time severely hinders a child’s education and is strongly discouraged.
In order to create an atmosphere of mutual respect and appreciation, we foster attitudes of honesty, integrity, tolerance and social responsibility by creating a reward system where good work and helpful behaviour are being credited.
In the primary school, discredits may be given for not repeatedly not doing homework, repeated misdemeanor etc. They do not cancel out credits earned but children receiving a discredit is aware that it is very disappointing.
All pupils must show consideration and respect towards others and school property. As proud Tabeethians our pupils ware the school uniform at all times (Navy blue or black trousers / skirts or shorts (no shorter than four inches above the knee) and a blue T shirt/sweatshirt with the school logo).
Principal’s coffee mornings/afternoon teas are held by the Principal every few weeks enabling parents a forum to ask about aspects of school they wish to know more about.
Pupil Learning Update Meetings (PLUMs)
All parents and pupils are encouraged to participate in PLUMs with their teachers. These meetings aim to support and monitor pupil’s individual development thus enhancing positive transitions at all stages of their learning.
