TERM 4 – PARENTS’ EVENING

All parents are invited to the compulsory parents’ evening to be held on the 11 October 2018 from 16h00-19h00. The focus of the meeting will be to discuss leaner performance in Term three, intervention strategies and set performance targets for Term four. We call upon all the parents to be actively involved in their children’s education. Attendance is compulsory as pertinent issues relating to each learner will be discussed.

 

COMPULSORY WAITING CLASS

In light of the recent cases of child abduction, please note that we have a waiting class after school for learners waiting to be fetched. This is being done for your child’s safety and is compulsory for all Grade 1-3 learners. No learners will be released from the waiting class unless they are fetched by an adult. The only learners that will be released are those who walk home immediately at 13:00 or 13:30. Kindly make arrangements for transport drivers to fetch your child from their classroom.
