OVERNIGHT CAMP PAYMENTS

Kindly note that Grade 4, 6 and 7 payment due dates have passed and no further payments will be accepted. The Grade 5 final date for payment is tomorrow, 6 September 2019. Parents were advised to ensure that their school fee accounts are up to date to avoid disappointment.

EARLY CELEBRATION OF HERITAGE DAY

Our school will commemorate Heritage Day on 13 September 2019. This early celebration will occur because public schools will close for the end of Term 3 on 20 September 2019. Our learners and staff will come to school dressed in their traditional/cultural attire. There will be no fee charged for learners on the day. We will celebrate this auspicious day with a special assembly. In light of the current crises of our nation, let us support the celebration of our cultural heritage as we unite in our diversity.

NORMAL TEACHING & LEARNING

Parents are advised that we have reverted back to normal teaching and learning because the Cycle Test programme has concluded last week. Learners are expected to be present daily and complete all of their class and homework activities as we prepare for the final academic term.

USE OF THE CORRECT SCHOOL UNIFORM

Parents are instructed to ensure that their children are attired in the correct school uniform at all times (Please refer to the code of conduct in the learner’s school diary). We urge all parents to monitor their child’s uniform on a daily basis, before leaving home. Wearing the correct uniform is a must and this is non-negotiable. Neatness and presentation is a very important life skill that we wish to develop in our learners. Our learners ought to wear our school uniform with pride and patriotism.

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.
