  1. WELCOME TO TERM 2!

On behalf of the SGB and SMT of the school, we would like to welcome our staff, learners, and parents to Term 2. We heartily thank our school community for their hard work in Term 1 and we look forward to an exciting term ahead. All the best to our staff and learners for this academic term. We encourage our learners to focus on their studies and to put in more effort to achieve excellent results. We advise our parents to monitor their children’s books and assessment plan from the beginning of the term as well as to communicate and co-operate with our educators. Without the support and active involvement of our parents/guardians, providing a quality education to our learners will be a difficult feat to achieve.

Educators will discuss learners’ academic performance, intervention strategies, and general conduct. Parents will set academic targets for their child based on the results they have achieved. We look forward to a fruitful meeting.

  1. COVID-19 PROTOCOLS MUST BE ADHERED TO

According to the current SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) for schools, learners are expected to wear facemasks throughout the day, unless they are eating. This will continue until the DBE updates the SOPs. Thus, learners will continue to wear their facemasks when inside and outside the building. This will be revised once the updated SOPs are received from the DBE. Parents must ensure that learners wear a facemask when leaving home and have extras in their schoolbag. This will be strictly monitored. Learners are reminded to wash their hands and sanitize regularly. Parents of learners who are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms should seek medical attention. Learners should report to school when they have recovered.
