Newsletter #25 2017


We are a few weeks away from the Midrand Primary School Family Fun day! The weather is looking up and we are gearing for an event that promises to be bigger and better with loads of entertainment for all. Under the theme Above the Influence. We will have a 5 km fun run, a dance and singing competition, dads and lads mini soccer tournament, moms and daughter’s mini netball tournament and a variety of rides, jumping castles and slides. Stalls will be available to parents at a cost of R500. 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 cutting and replacing the 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.

Mrs Safai has contributed to the schools feeding scheme throughout the year. We wish to extend our gratitude once more to her for her generous contribution. Mrs Safai purchased groceries for our feeding scheme programme. We hope that Mrs Safai’s initiative will inspire other parents and stakeholders to contribute towards the wellbeing of our learners.
