Welcome back to school after a short but well deserved holiday. I hope that all learners and teachers are well rested and ready for working hard. I bet that most parents are very happy to send the children back to school as they are very tired of looking after them at home…
Please take note of the following important information:
BUDGET FOR 2019:
Thank you to our parents, teachers and SGB members who attended the meetings during the last week of term 3. We appreciate your effort and contribution a lot. Please note that the budget has been approved during the Budget meeting and that fees for 2019 will be as follows:
· Grade R – 11 instalments of R 850-00 per month plus the first fee of R 600-00. This gives us a total of R 9 950-00 for the 2019 year.
· Grades 1 to 7 – 11 instalments of R 800-00 per month plus the first fee of R 600-00. This gives us a total of R 9 400-00 for the 2019 year.
· Please note that a 7% discount applies if you pay the year’s school fees in full, on or before 28 February 2019.
ACADEMICS FOR TERM 4:
Please note that term 4 is surely the busiest term of the year. Lots of work need to be covered and learners need to be prepared for the final exams during November. Please ensure that your child is at school every day, ready to work hard. Please check that the necessary stationery is in your child’s school bag. Please make all doctors’ appointments for after school, as a child misses out on a lot of work when fetched from school earlier.
LATE COMING / FETCHING OF CHILDREN AFTER SCHOOL:
We still have a huge amount of children arriving late for school in the mornings. Those children miss out on very important Mathematical concepts that are taught during the first period. Please take note that it remains the parents’ responsibility to ensure that their children are on time for school. Many children wait until late after school to be fetched. Parents, please understand that it is not safe for children to be on their own outside school, waiting for transport. Please also note that the school cannot take responsibility if something should happen to a child outside the school premises. It remains the responsibility of the parent to ensure that a child is on time for school and be fetched on time after school. Let’s start taking the safety of our learners seriously please.
Good luck for this short and very busy term.
