Principal's Message - Term 1 2013
Welcome to San Fernando T.M.L. School.
Admission to this institution may have been extremely difficult for September 2013, so you can consider yourself fortunate. The demand for the school continues to be a great challenge and may be attributed to the school’s outstanding performance not only in academics but in other areas as well.
This booklet [student information booklet] is intended for you to familiarize yourselves with the institution - its history, rules and policies. In so doing, you will better understand what we are about and so together we can work towards achieving our goals.
We, at T.M.L. San Fernando, are committed to quality education and achieving excellence in all our endeavours. With your support for your child and this institution, we can continue to achieve and excel.
We look forward to working with you.
