PARENTS’ MEETING FEEDBACK

We would like to extend a word of appreciation to all our parents who have attended the Parents’ meeting last week. To all our parents who could not manage to attend the meeting, kindly make an appointment via the learners’ diary to see your child’s teacher in order to set academic targets for Term 1. We thank you for your compliance in this regard.

On the 10th of February 2020, our school will be engaging in our annual Photograph day. Learners must come to school neatly attired in their white shirt and tie. The photograph package information will be communicated at a later stage. Bring your best smile!

Interhouse will take place tomorrow, 31 January 2020. All learners should wear their PE shorts. T-shirts can be worn according to the learner’s sports house: Tigers – blue, Leopards – red, Lions – green & Pumas – yellow. Learners are only allowed to wear either plain black or white takkies. Learners should have a cap, sunscreen lotion, a healthy lunch and a water bottle. Learners who suffer from any chronic illness should carry their medication (Eg. asthma pump).
