Home Term Info Pre-Primary


Dear Parents

We thank you for entrusting your child to us.  We shall, through application of teaching methods, endeavour to lay the foundation for your child's future learning experiences.  We will strive to help your child to develop physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually.  However, regular reinforcement at home is critical to the development of your child.

SCHOOL TIMES 07:20 - 12:00

Teachers are only on duty from 07:20 in the morning.  The Pre-Primary gate needs to remain closed until a teacher comes on duty.  Please wait outside with your child until the gate opens at 07:20.  Please do not drop off and leave him/her unattended and assume the school or another parent will be the safe-keeper of your child.  School closes at 11:00 for the first week of school. Aftercare will be available from the first week and from 11:00.  From week 2, school will close at the normal time, 12:00.  We close early in the first week to allow the children to settle in.

Dear Parents 


ASSESSMENT WEEK 16-20 November         

Although assessment is done continuously throughout the year, please note that this week will be assessment week.  Make sure that your child has a good breakfast and goes to bed on time.  Please send your child to school each day this week.  There is no need to tell your children about assessment week (we don’t want the children feeling nervous). There will be no ‘tests’, all assessments are informal and fun activities.
