Newsletter #24 2017


Our learners and staff did a sterling job of cleaning the school last week Friday as part of Mandela Day. The SGB would like to commend them for their efforts and equal appreciation is directed to all parents for supporting this noble initiative. Let us make everyday a Mandela day!



The preparations for the Midrand Primary School Family Fun day are underway and this year’s event promises to be bigger and better with loads of entertainment for all. We encourage all our parents to take part in the 5 km fun run to support the school’s fight against drugs and substance abuse in the community and a variety of rides, jumping castles and slides. This event will be held on 09 September 2017. The entrance fee for 2017 is R60.00 per person. To avoid long queues on the day of the event, we encourage that payment be made to the class teacher.



Parents are asked to please ensure that learners look after their locker keys to avoid unnecessary cutting and replacing of pad locks.



Parents are urged to make payments for camp as the closing date for payments are nearing. Please ensure that school fees are updated to avoid disappointment. Please note that the cut-off date for payments is 01 September 2017.
