Finally, thank you to all parents and students for your understanding and cooperation during this challenging period of adjustment. A special thank you to all VSL teachers and administrators for their extraordinary work.

We must all continue to maintain our social distancing and hygiene practices and wear masks when leaving home, and we hope that we will return to normal school life in the near future.

We need to thank again the wonderful contribution made by our Health Workers.

Best wishes to everyone in our school community for a safe Term 3.
