NEWSLETTER 30 | TERM 4 – 2016

Good Day,


Reports were handed out on Friday 21 October 2016.


All learners did receive an exam time table.

The exam starts 31 October 2016 for Gr. 8 – grade 11 and from the 31 October the school will be out at 12h00 until the 23 November for grade 1 to grade 11.

Grade 4 – grade 7 will start with their exams on 10 November 2016.  Please make the necessary arrangements for your child if school will be out at 12h00.

 Own Transport:

We are experiencing some problems with learners that are left at school until very late at night.  We don’t take any responsibility for such learners.  We don’t have any teacher or staff member on duty to look after these learners.  Make sure that you inform the own transport about the times of the school.  This is not acceptable at all.


It will take place on the following days (ONLY BY INVITATION – YOU WILL RECEIVE NOTICE)

Grade 1 – 3                 Parents will be invited on different days
Grade 4 – 7                 25 October:  14h15 till 17h00 (by invitation only)
Grade 8 – 12               26 October:  14h15 till 17h00 (by invitation only)

2 NOVEMBER 2016:

An SMS was send to all parents on Tuesday, 25 October 2016, regarding this matter.

Previously it was said that we will not be affected by the protests, and at the end of the day our buses couldn’t drop off learners.  We are not prepared to sacrifice the safety of the learners or the drivers on that day.  Therefore we have decided that there WILL NOT BE ANY BUS TRANSPORT ON THE 2ND OF NOVEMBER 2016.  The school will be open for those parents that have a problem, but you will have to bring your child yourself and pick your child up not later than 12h00.   Teachers will all be leaving at 12h00, that includes all the other staff as well.

There are no exams scheduled for the 2nd of November, so your child will not miss any papers.  The 3rd of November will be a normal exam day.  Buses will pick up all learners again on the 3rd of November 2016.  THERE WILL BE NO FORMAL CLASS OR EXAMS ON THIS DAY.


It is was with great sadness that we had to inform you that mr. Lawrence Kwaramba has passed away on Monday morning.  He was a teacher at the Intermediate phase and had grade 4D as register class.  Mr. Kwaramba was a very professional teacher, with so much empathy and sympathy towards all learners and colleagues.   He will be dearly missed.


The children coming late are causing a lot of disruption:

  • Teachers mark them absent
  • They disrupt the class when they come in one by one
  • We start at 7h40 and all learners must be on time
  • We will not tolerate this any more

Yours sincerely,

Mr. JS Diedericks
Operational Principal
