A warm welcome to all the new staff and the new learners.

GRADE 12 RESULTS 2018:
Once again we had a 100% pass rate.  We had a 78% Bachelor’s degree pass, which is extremely good.  We had multiple distinctions and our previous head girl Lebogang Molapo had 7 distinctions.  Many other learners had 6, 5, 4 and 3.  We are very proud and know that the teachers and learners worked extremely hard to reap the fruit of their effort.  CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!!!!!

Please make sure that your child is wearing the correct uniform.  It is available at Silver Cross, Madelief Centre, Pretoria-North.  For PT – Physical Training – they have to wear the Vossie black short with the PT golf shirt.  They can also wear the Charlton Vos tracksuit pants, which are available at Silver Cross, with the PT golf shirt.  They are only allowed to wear the PT uniform when the teacher tells them they will be doing exercises outside.

When a learner is not dressed correctly, such learner’s parent will be contacted to bring the correct uniform.  We will not tolerate any incorrect uniform.

MESSAGES:
We do ask that you please make all arrangements regarding transport, shops etc with you child before he/she leaves for school.  It becomes very difficult for office personnel to keep on conveying messages the whole day.  Only in case of emergency we will gladly convey the message.

GENERAL:
We hope and trust that you will have a wonderful year and that your child will excel in his/her grade.  We strive to do our best, but we always need the parents to help us.  Good luck for the year.
