NEWSLETTER 23 | TERM 3 – 2017

Good day


Spring is almost here.  As from the 1st of September all learners must start wearing their summer uniform.  We do ask that you make sure that your child has the correct summer uniform.  Silver Cross is ready for you if you would like to purchase new summer uniform for your child.  We will have regular inspections to warn the learners with wrong clothing.  BUT it stays the responsibility of the parent to make sure that your child has the correct uniform.  FOR PT, learners must wear the black track suit pants ONLY available from Silver Cross.  Learners wearing the wrong uniform will be send to the office, and the parents will be phoned to bring the correct clothes or fetch the learner from school.  This is a very serious matter and it seems that our learners are not as neat as we expect them to be.


The school will be closing on the 28th of September 2017, at 14h00.  Please inform the after care and the own transport (taxi’s) about this date.


On Friday the 1st of September is Spring Day.  The Student Council are raising funds.  Each learner must please pay R5,00, the they can wear the following:  Black OR Blue jean, tekkies and then one of the following coloured T-shirt – white OR pink OR yellow.  Learners that don’t want to participate must wear their summer school uniform on this day.  R5,00 must be paid in with the class teacher.


This is a very serious matter and discipline is one of the most important components in any business or school.  Discipline must be enforced to be able to have any school system run smoothly.  All rules must be abide by and everyone must play their part in the daily running of the school.  We ask that you speak to your child about discipline, respect toward others (fellow learners, teachers, parents and all other staff), loyalty, integrity and faith.  We have some learners here that do not adhere to rules and they are creating a problem in class and on the playground.

We do ask that you also speak to your child about his/her behaviour on the bus.  It is important that they sit still and behave.  They have to know the consequences of misbehaving on the bus.  They can’t jump up and down, walk around, damaging the seats and can’t put their bags on the seat.  We do ask your help in this regard.

We all are a photograph of our parents and home.  Here at Charlton Vos College we are the CREAM OF THE CROP, and we need to show that to ourselves and the world by the way we treat others and show respect for our school.

We hope and trust that you will have a wonderful weekend.
