Dear Parents,

As we approach the end of the school year, we look back on what has been a very busy and successful year. The pleasing number and variety of outstanding achievements during the year has been particularly gratifying, and we thank all the boys for their commitment during the year.

Before the school year comes to a close, there are a few important items that we wish to bring to your attention:

  • The academic year will commence on Wednesday 28th August, and Houses will open from Monday 26th August. Please may all students return to school by Tuesday 27th August at the latest.
  • Please do ensure that your son returns with the appropriate clothing needed for School as pointed out in the Dress Code. There will be an increasing effort in ensuring our students look smart for the new academic year ahead. 

Congratulations to those Grade 8 students who successfully graduated from Middle School this week. We take this opportunity to thank you for the role you have played in Concha over the years and wish all the best on your new adventure in High School. 

There has been a valiant effort from the boys this year regarding their academics and this is reflected on the improvement from one marking period to the next. Some can celebrate their successes and others can take the opportunity to reflect and consider what steps will be taken in order to improve as they approach the final Chapter of their time in Middle School. 

This semester saw the boys partaking in an array of activities ranging from trips to Annecy to our End of Year event. Other activities included wakeboarding and Banana Boating as we welcomed back the summer sun as well as tennis. 

We urge you to remember that the learning never stops, and although the Summer vacation is upon, keep learning, keep discovering and keep having fun…and don’t spend too much time on your laptops with the beautiful weather!  

We know that everyone is now ready for a well-earned holiday and we wish you all a very happy and restful summer break. 

Kindest regards,

James Griffiths, Matthew Svenningsen, Erik Roman Miralles and Salvatore Politano

Concha Carwash

This evening, the boys from Concha held their second charity event of the academic year. They managed to work well as a team, and clean six cars, raising around 110 CHF in donations.

Thank you to Mr Rob, Mr Josh, Mr Matt, Miss Eleonora, Mr Robinson and Miss Valérie for their kind donations. Thank you also to Mr Tom for his help during the event.
