Newsletter 19 21 July

Dear Parents

We trust the staff and learners enjoyed their break and are well rested. We are looking forward to a successful Term 3.


Parents' Evening for all grades will take place tonight (Thursday, 21 July 2022). Educators will see parents who have received letters of invitation between 17:00 and 19:00. Learners are to accompany their parents, and must be dressed in school uniform. All other parents may see their children's educators, should they wish to, during open time which is between 19:00 and 20:00.


Extra-mural activities for Term 3 will commence on Monday, 25 July 2022.


Thank you to parents for their support and enthusiasm which goes a long way to ensuring that our annual Big Walk fundraiser is a success. If your child has not yet returned the sponsor card together with the money collected, please encourage him/her to do so as we are keen to finalise the date for the prize giving.


It has now become URGENT that learners bring in the R200.00 to cover the cost of the production of the concert together with the reply slip giving permission for your child to be included in the concert. Please make every effort to send this money in to the class teacher without delay. All learners who have NOT PAID their money by the 01 August 2022 will be removed from the production.
