Advance Fees and Student Withdrawal

A message was sent from ESF to all parents regarding advance fees for the 2019/20 academic year. You may also view the message here.

If you are withdrawing your child at the end of this academic year, please complete the student withdrawal notice and return it to the school office in person or via email by 31 May 2019. Otherwise, ESF will assume that your child is returning after summer and parents are liable to the tuition fees for September 2019 even if the student does not return to school.


Lost and Found

There are quite a lot of jackets, jumpers, water bottles, etc that have been placed at the Lost & Found Corner for a while. Items with students’ names labelled have been identified and sent to your child. However, there are still many items without names. Please ask your child to check at the Lost & Found Corner if they have any missing items. These items will be disposed of at the end of this term on Friday 28 June. Please help our children shoot the AAROW of Success to be Respectful and Responsible of their own belongings!


Library News – Thank you for supporting Beyond the Book Project organized by KGV students

Thank you, everyone, for the generous donation of your books to support King George V students’ Beyond the Book Project. The response has been overwhelming as we collected more than 16 boxes worth of books. King V students will be sorting through the books over the next several days and we will update you with pictures of where the books are donated in weeks to come.


PTA Update

We will be having our end-of-year School Disco on Thursday, 13 June 2019 from 5pm to 7pm.  Please stay tuned for more details and availability of tickets.

Thank you.


Student Success

The celebration of student success will channel to our Facebook page. You can find the school’s Facebook here. Please keep the photos and stories coming of our children shooting the AAROW’s of Success!
