  1. STEEL LOCKERS

Learners will be allowed to make use of school lockers from the beginning of Term 3 at a leasing cost of R50 payable to class teachers. We encourage parents to lease a locker for learners as this will assist in reducing the weight in their school bags. We also advise parents that under no circumstances will educators tolerate the excuse of leaving or forgetting books in the locker (incomplete homework). Using the locker comes with the responsibility of following your timetable and recording homework activities in the compulsory school diary. This will assist in knowing which books should be stored in the locker. Lockers will be available for learners in Grades 4-7 only.

  1. ANNUAL PYJAMA DAY

As the icy-cold breeze of winter has blown in, we are excited to announce that our annual Pyjama Day will take place on the 27th of May 2022 at a cost of R20 payable to class teachers. Learners who pay will be allowed to come to school dressed in their warm and woolly WINTER Pyjamas only. Civvies will not be allowed.

  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.

  1. SCHOOL FEES

All parents are requested 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.
