Foundation Phase Safety
When dropping your children off at school in the mornings, please see that they are brought safely to the school gate. Although we have pedestrian walkways in our car park, children need to be accompanied by parents/adult whilst walking on these walkways. Please also remember that we have a teacher on duty from 7:15 and learners arriving earlier are not supervised. They may not use any playground apparatus before the teacher on duty arrives. We encourage parents to say their goodbyes at the gate, allowing their children the
independence of carrying their bag and arriving at class.

Adventure Race 2018: 7-8 September
Hello Lilyfontein family, book your team into the Lilyfontein Adventure Race. Each four member team must include at least one member of the opposite gender.
