Virtual parents evening will be held in February first week. Date will be communicated closer to the time.

We expect the students to attend the classes regularly. Students missing classes find it very difficult to catch up with the rest of their group and make poor progress in learning Tamil. Students are expected to come to the lesson on time at 7.15 pm start. Latecomers will be marked and it will impact their attendance score.

At least 85% attendance is a must. If the child does not have satisfactory attendance, they may not be able to sit the end of year assessment and likely to stay in the same grade for the next academic year.

School Pickup:
Please be available to pick your child by 8.45 pm and vacate the school premises by 8.50 pm. There will be no adult supervising your child after 8.50 PM. If you are delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, please arrange a cover for pickup and/or inform your child’s teacher.

Every teacher is an unpaid volunteer and many of them have small children who also attend Tamil school. Your delay impacts other families as well. So, we request you to be on time for pickup each week. If we notice frequent delays in  pickup, late fees might be  charged.

Kindly avoid parking on both sides of Norris Road as it causes a lot of traffic congestion.
Kindly make use of the two school car parks of Sale High School.

If you are thinking about volunteering and have not had the chance to do so, now is the perfect time. We have both teaching and non teaching volunteer openings (full time or part time). If you are interested, please get in touch with the principal or email us at [email protected] a  lovely summer. See you all on 8th September at 7.00 pm
