PUNCTUALITY: LATE COMING

Many learners have been arriving late to school on a daily basis. This is unacceptable. Late coming disrupts lessons and creates an atmosphere of chaos. We implore all parents to assist in this regard by adjusting their times accordingly as well as by communicating to learners’ transport services to ensure that learners arrive on time every day. We look forward to noting changes in this regard.
