Message from the Head of Wingate School, September 2021
Dear parents and guardians
Although there have been some social relaxations due to Covid, we have received instructions from the Gobierno de Canarias with the latest advice and practices to have in place when we reopen. The Covid-19 Committee have all agreed that we maintain the same Protocols as were employed for the last academic year, with a few minor changes. All the information in the Covid-19 section on the front page of our website has been updated. We have reviewed the school day times and please be aware that the school day starts at 08.55.
Please remember YOU MUST take your child's temperature before they leave home. YOU MUST NOT send them to school if they have a temperature of 37.5 deg or above, or display any Covid-19 symptoms and you should consult your GP. Your child MUST come to school unless they have a fever or display Covid symptoms, or you have a doctor's letter saying they cannot come to school. Either situation, you must inform the school immediately. Please advise the school office if there has been any change to your contact details and advise the school of an emergency contact number, should you be unavailable.
We keep the Covid-19 protocols under constant review but to keep 100% face-to-face education, we must avoid complacency, we must all remain on our guard and we must work together.
We will keep you informed of any changes or updates so please keep checking the website.
As prospective parents cannot, unfortunately, visit Wingate School in person during the pandemic, we have created this short video so you can see the school and what we are doing. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions the camera crew were not allowed into any classrooms but we hope you can get a good overview of our lovely school.
Thank you for the email enquiring about how Zoë found the intake process at Wingate. I'm pleased to say that Zoë seems to have settled in well at Wingate and has made some friends. She is happy to come to school in the mornings and is now feeling more comfortable in lessons and with the level of teaching.
The administration department has been very professional and efficient and responded quickly to any enquiries I have made. The enrollment process was easy to follow especially as we were applying from overseas.
Muchas gracias por su interés en Georgia.
Solo comunicarles que está muy feliz en el colegio y su primer dia de llegada a casa le dijo a su padre que había sido el mejor dia de su vida.
Una vez mas muchas gracias por la ayuda que hemos recibido con los niños por parte del equipo del colegio.
Thank you very much for your interest in Georgia.
Just to let you know that she is very happy at school and after arriving home from her first day of school she told her father that it had been the best day of her life.
Once again, thank you very much for the help we have received with the children from the school office.
