We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our parents who have attended the Parents’ Evening last week. We appreciate your commitment to the education of your child. Parents who did not make it to the meeting are requested to set up an urgent appointment with your child’s class teacher so that the necessary documents can be filled out.

DISTRICT SPELLABEE RESULTS: LANGUAGE STARS SHINE

The District level of the Spellabee competition was held on the 15th of July 2019 at Halfway House. Our representatives, Reatlegile Mphake and Vuyiswa Mcaba from Grade 6 had to learn 1200 words in order to participate. Our star linguists have outdone themselves this time! Out of 15 schools and so many participants, both of our learners have won and will proceed to the next level of the competition. We are extremely proud of them and we wish them all the best for the next round. Thanks to Mrs. Mahlangu for her great coaching efforts and for accompanying our learners to the competition.
