  1. REMINDER: 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. REMINDER: WINTER SCHOOL UNIFORM

Parents are instructed to ensure that learners wear the correct school uniform for Winter as stipulated in the school code of conduct that can be found in learners’ compulsory school diary. We expect maximum co-operation in this regard.

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.
