  1. REMINDER: SUSPENSION OF CONTACT SPORTS AND EXTRA-MURAL ACTIVITIES

Due to the spike in the number of Covid-19 cases, the Department of Basic Education has suspended contact sports and extra-mural activities. The resumption of these activities will be communicated at a later stage. We encourage all parents, learners and staff to strictly adhere to all Covid-19 protocols.

 

  1. TERM 2 CONTROLLED TESTS – INTERSEN PHASE

Parents/guardians are informed that the Controlled Test programme (previously known as the June Examinations) will commence on Thursday, the 17th of June 2021 to the 29th of June 2021. The Controlled Test timetable will be communicated soon. From the first day of the Controlled Tests, Grade 4-7 learners will begin alternating in Grades and NOT in Groups. Foundation Phase learners will continue to alternate in Groups. Grade 4 and Grade 6 learners will write their tests on the same day. Grade 5 and Grade 7 learners will write their tests on the same day. It is extremely imperative for parents to ensure that their children are effectively studying at home by assisting with revision as well as testing their knowledge. Take note of the important item below.

 

  1. AN APPEAL TO PARENTS ON CURRICULUM COVERAGE & ACADEMIC IMPROVEMENT

We implore all parents and guardians to ensure that learners attend school on a regular basis, as per the rotational timetable. Unnecessary absence will not be tolerated as this hinders the teaching and learning process. In order for learners to meet the promotional requirements and attain excellent results, all classwork, corrections and remote learning activities must be completed. Learners must revise concepts learned in class at home. We call upon our parents/guardians to actively check learners’ books on a regular basis. Intervention programmes are underway for learners who did not meet the promotional requirements in Term 1. Parents/guardians are encouraged to communicate with their child’s teachers regularly via the compulsory school diary, email or telephonically.

Kindly note that the final day for the payment of school photographs is today, the 27TH of May 2021. Parents who have not paid can still do so today.

All parents are urged 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. Use the correct references when making deposits.
