Welcome back after a very short break. Hope that you have used the time to spend quality and quantity time with your child during the break.
Term 4 is a very short term and also a very important term, because the final exam is around the corner. All learners need to start with preparations for the exam.
If your child is not yet wearing the summer uniform, please make sure that they do it ASAP. No beanies or scarfs are allowed anymore. The uniform is available at Silver Cross, Madelief Centre, Pretoria-North.
Some learners’ uniform is really very dirty and some is too small. Please make sure that your child is exceptionally neat every day. They need to be proud of their uniform. This is the responsibility of the parent to make sure that your child is correctly and neatly dressed every day for school.
Learners must wear the correct PT uniform when they have PT. Please make sure your child has the correct PT uniform on, otherwise your child will be taken out and the parents will be phoned to come and collect the learner from school.
They have to put on for PT: Plain black tracksuit pants (not skinny leg or ski pants) or Vossies Short with red PT shirt from Silver Cross. They wear tekkies with white sport sock with red and black stripe that is also available at Silver Cross.
We have addressed the clothing problem a few times. From now on, learners with the incorrect uniform, including the PT uniform will be send to the office and parents will have to bring the correct uniform or fetch them from school.
We ask to make sure that your child/ren school fees are paid up for 2016, before the exam starts. Remember that November’s school fees must be paid on or before the 3rd of November 2016. That will be the last payment for the year, excluding the re-registration fee for 2017. Re-registration fee must be paid end of October 2016. Remember that re-registration fee forms part of 2016’s fees and must be paid end of October 2016.
GRADE 12 CHURCH SERVICE:
The grade 12 learners and their parents will be attending the church service on Friday 14th October. We do thank 2 of our old Charlies, Mmeli Zulu and Kgomotso Bapela for helping with the grade 12 service.
PRIZE GIVING CEREMONY: Grade 1 – Grade 12
The prize giving ceremony will be held on the 20th October 2016 at Akasia Connect (opposite the school). This is a ceremony by invitation only. Invited learners will receive 2 tickets for Mom and Dad to attend. Details about the ceremony will be handed to the learners on Friday, 14 October 2016.
FUN DAY: Grade R – Grade 7
The fun day will be on the 19th of October at school. They need to bring a swimming costume and towel. Make sure that it is clearly marked and in a bag. They will not wear school uniform, but casual clothes on this day. If your child will not be taking part, he/she must wear school uniform and will be divided into supervision classes for the day.
