Newsletter 31 of 20 October 2022



Dear Parents


ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING


Please diarise the date of the Annual General Meeting which will take place in the school hall on Wednesday, 16 November 2022 at 18:00. The budget (including school fees) for the 2023 year will be presented at this meeting and all parents/guardians are urged to attend. A letter regarding the meeting was sent home with the learners yesterday.


BIG WALK PRIZEGIVING


We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our Big Walk prizegiving on Wednesday, 02 November 2022. We would like to thank all parents and learners who diligently brought in their Big Walk cards and sponsorship money. There are lots of prizes that will be handed out at this exciting event.



TRAFFIC


We appeal to parents to not stop on the zebra-crossing when dropping off and collecting learners. This act is not only against the road safety regulations but is also dangerous for the children. Kindly pull up in the areas provided for stopping.



CURRENT SCHOOL FEES


Thank you to those parents/guardians who have settled their school fees, including those who have been to see the Finance Department to make financial arrangements.

To those parents/guardians who have not yet paid their fees, please note that as per our school agreement, school fees had to be settled in full by Monday, 31 October 2022.


Legal proceedings will be instituted against all arrear accounts if there is no written agreement with the Finance Department. If you have a problem, please contact the Finance Department on 011 902 2310 to discuss as matter of urgency.


UPDATE OF CONTACT DETAILS


This is an appeal to all parents/guardians to kindly ensure that you keep the school informed of any change in your contact numbers (cell phone or land line numbers for work and home).

It is important that your records reflect the most recent contact numbers so that the school can easily access you in case of an emergency.


ON CUE THEATRE


Our learners will be delighted to know that the On Cue Theatre will be hosting their production “Beauty and the Beast” for Foundation Phase and “The Happy Prince” for the Intermediate Phase at Dinwiddie Primary School on Friday, 28 October 2022. The cost per child to attend this production will be R25, and the money must be paid to the class educator. Learners who do not attend the production will continue with classwork.


GRADE 6 CAMP


Our Grade 6 learners have returned safely from their leadership camp. Mrs Gouws,

Mrs. Le Roux, Miss Du Toit and Mr. Fourie say that it was a very pleasant trip and that the learners thoroughly enjoyed their time at camp.



ROAD SAFETY


We are concerned about the safety and wellbeing of our learners at all times but especially when they are waiting for transport to arrive. The waiting area was designed to make sure that our learners are kept safe whilst they wait for their transport home. However, we are aware that some transport providers tell the learners to wait for their transport outside the gate. We are worried that some of these learners play on the pavements and also in the street which puts them in danger of being injured by passing traffic.

Parents, please could you take some time to discuss with your children the dangers of running and playing in the streets and also make sure that they know that they must remain inside the waiting area until their transport arrives.

There are so many reports received of road accidents and fatalities for the very reasons we mention above, and our appeal to parents is that they take this matter seriously in order to prevent tragic circumstances.
