Early Monday morning, 15 April, Lyn Rose-Innes, the Governing Body representative of the Union Schools’ boarding houses, met with interested parents of the schools’ weekly and termly boarders. This meeting is held each term and enables parents to air their concerns, if any, and discuss other matters of import such as fundraising activities and the like.
The meeting is also used to convey information to the parents relating to the three boarding houses, Arthur Kingwill House, Max Kroon House and Herby Arnott House, that concern the boarders.
Among matters discussed this term, was the town’s prevailing water crisis and how this is impacting the boarders. The annual Farmers’ Market fundraiser that will be held over this year’s Interschools weekend was also discussed.
It was also mentioned that the boarders will soon have access to wifi. The wifi will be strictly regulated and only available between a certain timeframe, but it should assist parents in reducing their expenses relating to their child’s data usage.
