PARENT / SCHOOL / LEARNER CO-OPERATION
In order for us as a learning institution to provide quality education, we would like to ensure that we manage a safe, healthy and focused context for our parents, educators and learners. We appeal to you as parents and primary educators of your children, to uphold our school’s Code of Conduct, Dress Code and Academic Expectations. In this way we can ensure a collaborative and co-operative learning experience for all our learners. Conflicting standards and levels of discipline between home and school are confusing and self-destructive. Let us ensure that we are all on the same educational page.

Please read through the letter to familiarise yourself with our Safety & Security policy.

VEHICLES/MOTORBIKES
Any students who bring vehicles/motorbikes onto campus need to ensure that:

  • Permission and communication with the school has been done.
  • The school has your licence number and vehicle registration numbers recorded.
  • The school has a copy of your driver’s licence.
  • You have been interviewed by Mr Els.

ABSENTEEISM
Please note that should your child be absent from school a letter is to be sent in to the office. Should your child be absent for 3 or more days in a row, a Doctor’s Certificate needs to be sent to school. Our computer programme automatically issues a demerit if your child’s name is entered as absent without a letter. Parents are requested to please support us in this matter. The DoE has ruled that any learner absent for 25% of the year, will not be allowed to write examinations due to the lack of class time.

ID DOCUMENTS/CARD
The Department of Education has requested schools to ask parents to ensure that learners apply for ID documents as an ID document is essential for registration for external examinations at the end of Grade 11 and for Grade 12.

SCHOOL SHOP
Please note that our school shop is open Mondays to Thursdays 7.30 – 8.00am



MUSIC LESSONS
Please note that individual music lessons (piano/guitar/recorder) started on Monday, 14 January.  If your child is starting recorder / guitar lessons, please ensure that they have the instrument and files as requested.

EXTRA TIME APPLICATION

Applications need to be early in the new year.  Forms are available from the front office and must include a Scholastic Assessment not older than 3 years.  Please note learners need to re-apply for each phase.
