Mr Singh, using only scissors and coloured paper (no glue or pins), made flowers, garlands, paper chains and other decorations during the presentation of his craft.

The Open Evening scheduled for Tuesday 9 March has been cancelled. Parents interested in sending their sons to the Preparatory School who contacted the school over the past school year, were invited to call to the school during normal school hours in order to view the school in operation during a school day. This policy has proved to be very successful. Parents who have not taken advantage of this arrangement so far, are invited to phone the school (021 4559209) and make an individual appointment to come during normal school hours. The parents who called so far, many of whom brought their sons with them, were very pleased with the insight into the school which the experience gave them. It gave them the essential information to make up their minds as to whether what the Preparatory School was offering was what they were looking for for their sons.
