On the last day, learners will receive their progress report cards at 10:00 and will be released at the same time. Grade 7 learners who are going on Camp will receive their progress report cards upon arrival from the Camp. Parents are instructed to make the necessary transport arrangements to fetch their children on time. We will not tolerate learners loitering after they have been dismissed. Learners’ safety is of utmost importance. We wish our learners and staff a safe and a restful holiday.

EARLY CELEBRATION OF HERITAGE DAY

Our school will commemorate Heritage Day tomorrow, 13 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.

BATTLE OF THE BOOKS – ZONAL RESULTS

Eight of our Grade 7 avid readers proceeded to the Zonal round of The Battle of the Books competition which was held on the 11th of September 2019 at Diepsloot Library. After an immense battle, reaching a tie-breaker, our learners attained position two. Congratulations to the following learners who have worked tirelessly, reading fifteen novels since February this year: Nhlanhla M, Lehlogonolo M, Nhlalala M, Precious M, Himalan G, Alupheli N, Frieda N & Gcobisa J. These learners encourage other learners to read as they have seen an improvement in their comprehension, writing and spelling. Thanks to Mr. Govender and Ms. Nayager for coaching & facilitating this competition.
