Please follow this link for information regarding Absenteeism.

Procedure when contacting educators
When you need to contact an educator, please observe the following procedures:
• Please phone the school to make an appointment with the relevant educator.
• Discuss the problem, find a way forward and determine a time when educator / parent will meet for feedback on the application of decisions.
• Unless in an extreme emergency, please avoid contacting the educators at home.
• Please avoid making contact with educators while they are actually busy coaching or supervising learners.
Parents are requested to execute the courtesy of making appointments through the front office to see teachers and not go directly to the classrooms, again for the purpose of the safety of all on campus.
Sunflower Day: 15 September
Buy a Tope for R25 from Pick n Pay or online from Zando and help us give the hope of life to patients suffering from blood disorders such as Leukemia. We will photograph our learners wearing the topes in unusual ways on Friday, 15 September and submit them for a competition in which we could win up to R20 000,00. Get together with your class reps and let's get creative! There are prizes for the school with the biggest percentage of their learners that wear a tope on that day so please do your part to help Lilyfontein School's fundraising effort.
