WELCOME TO TERM 4!

On behalf of the SMT and SGB of the school, we would like to welcome our learners, parents and educators to the final term of the academic year. We trust that you have all had an enjoyable short break. We encourage our learners to focus on completing all their school activities and prepare for the School-based tests that will commence next week. All the best for the final term!

 

  1. PROCEDURES/PROTOCOLS TO BE FOLLOWED FOR THE AGM

Parents are reminded of the 2020 AGM that will take place on the 5th of November 2020 at 18:00.We implore parents to arrive early so that the meeting can conclude timeously. Due to Covid-19 regulations and social distancing, some parents will be accommodated in the hall and the remaining parents will be housed in classrooms where the meeting will be live streamed. Parents will be sanitized and screened (temperature and questionnaire) upon entry. This will be done from 17:30-18:00. Kindly bring your own pen! According to a memorandum received from the GDE, a quorum will not be required for the AGM. In an attempt to contain the spread of the virus, the meeting will be kept very short.
