SCHOOL CONCERT 2019

The concert is finally here!!! Our School Concert will be on Saturday, 04 May 2019 from 8:30 – 15:00. This is going to be a one-day event. The theme of the concert is “Proud Past – Bright Future: 25 Years”. Tickets can be purchased at a cost of R50 pp, payable to the class teacher. We urge parents to purchase tickers by Friday, 03 May 2019 in order to avoid queues on the day. Participants will enter for free with participant tickets. As we commemorate 25 years of democracy, let us celebrate by supporting the talent of our children.

UPDATE: RENT A STALL AT THE SCHOOL CONCERT

Last opportunity! Parents can rent a stall for the duration of the School Concert at a cost of R650. We advise parents to have food stalls as well as cool drinks and juices. However, toy stalls are also welcome. Monies can be paid at the Finance window at school on or before 03 May 2019.

LEARNER ABSENTEESIM

Many learners are being absent without reason on a daily basis. This is unacceptable. Learners are allowed to be absent from school when they are ill or there is an emergency to be attended to. We have noted that learners have been absent without reason recently and we urge parents to ensure that learners are present at school every day. After being absent, learners must present a letter from the doctor or their parents in the official school diary providing reasons for absenteeism. The learner must then catch up with all the schoolwork they have missed as soon as possible. We expect maximal co-operation in this regard!

PARENTS’ MONITORING OF THE ASSESSMENT PROGRAMME / LEARNERS’ BOOKS

Learners receive an assessment programme termly indicating all of the promotional (formal) assessment tasks and due dates. We urge parents to monitor this programme and ensure that learners are prepared timeously for these tests, tasks or projects. Late submission or non-submission of tasks is unacceptable and will lead to poor academic results. In the same vein, parents must closely monitor their child’s classwork books to ensure that all activities are completed.

 

SCHOOL FEES

All parents are requested to ensure that their school fees account is up to date. School fees can be paid at the school’s finance office using debit or credit card or by direct deposit into the school’s bank account. No cash will be accepted. Please use the correct references when making deposits.
