The 2017 academic year is off and running. All P6 and P7 students returned to ROA on January 23 while Nursery through P5 returned one week later on February 6. Sixteen news students have enrolled in baby class for the 2017 academic year and this number is expected to rise throughout the first few weeks of the term. 

Students who graduated from the nursery program in 2016 passing baby, middle, and top class are now starting their first year of primary education. Their new schedule is quite a change as they will no longer be in class half a day but will arrive at 7:00 am and return home at 5:00 pm. At this level students begin a curriculum that involves much independent work with necessary assistance from teachers. This marks the beginning of their preparation for the Primary Leaving Exam that they will take place once they complete P7.
