15 February 2019

Dear Parents
 
A busy week at Lilyfontein with many events happening around the campus.  Please take note of the following.



URGENT NOTICE TO PARENTS: Concession Applications
We have received notice from the Department of Education for Concession Applications. All applications have to be submitted to the Department by Thursday, 28th February. The Department has stipulated that applications are made by the school and not by parents of learners. All applications need to be accompanied by a psychological report by an Educational Psychologist not older than 2 years. It is the responsibility of the parents to submit this report to the school, no later than 22nd February. Please note that successful applications cover a learner per phase. Learners therefore need to reapply in Grade 4, Grade 7, Grade 10 and Grade 12.

TRAVELLING BOOKSHOP: 19-20 February 2019 
The Travelling Bookshop will once again be visiting our school. They will be in the School Hall on Tuesday and Wednesday, 19 and 20 February 2019. Please remember to support them.

OPEN DAY:
Please inform your friends and family.  RSVP to reception


 

LILYFONTEIN LICENSE DISCS:  Available at Reception
Please note that if you do not have a security disc on your vehicle the security guard will stop your vehicle and ask you for a temp disc, which must be collected at reception and handed to the security guard on your exit of the school.  Please ensure that should someone else be collecting your child on your behalf they have to report to reception to get a temp disc to hand in at security.  

You can still purchase a security disc from reception, should you require one.  Please note that you can buy as many as you need to ensure easy access in and out of the school.

How to practice emotional first aid | Guy Winch
 
click here

We'll go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Too many of us deal with common psychological-health issues on our own, says Guy Winch. But we don’t have to. He makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.
