My advise run for the hills. Walk the extra mile and put your child in another school. This school is no good. The education structure is poor, there is no maintained order amongst teachers and staff. The end result your child will be given poor education.

The most disorganized school ever! Lack of communication for sure! Everything is done last minute, not a school I would recommend. They need to do better in all areas.
