The exam is in full swing and we hope and trust that all learners and parents are working very hard to achieve good results at the end of the year. We can see that some learners are not preparing for the exam and there will not be another chance to better this year’s mark after the exam. That is why we have asked the parents to help the learners with their studies every day.
The school uniform is available at Silver Cross, Madelief Centre, Pretoria-North. We have addressed this issue ample times now and there are still learners wearing the wrong uniform or don’t obey the school rules regarding uniform.
The new slim fit pants for boys and girls are available at Silver Cross. They can only wear the slim fit from the supplier. If your child is wearing any other slim fit, he/she will be send home to redress.
The PT tracksuit pants will also be available from Silver Cross. It is a black tracksuit pant with our logo and the school’s name embroided on the pants. NO other tracksuit pant will be allowed for PT. Please make sure when you purchase your child’s uniform for the next year that you buy the correct clothing otherwise it is going to cost you extra money if they don’t have the correct uniform.
We have informed you last year at the end of the year that Caddies will not be allowed anymore. It is a sound nuisance and it is extremely heavy for the learners to carry it around. It also takes up a lot of space in the class and in the bus.
We would like to take this opportunity and thank all the parents that pay the school fees promptly every month. November 2017’s fees had to be paid by the 3rd of November. Please remember to make sure that your re-registration fee for 2018 is also paid with the November school fees. We have many learners on the waiting list and will be enrolling them in your child’s space if the re-registration is not paid ASAP.
We just want to emphasize the fact that if your child’s fees are not paid up to date, your child will not be able to make use of the free bus transport to and from school every day. If you are transporting your child yourself you MUST FETCH YOUR CHILD NOT LATER THAN 14H15 FROM SCHOOL. School patrollers WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR CHILD AFTER 14H15.
