NEWSLETTER 11 | TERM 2 – 2021

Good day to all parents

Winter is here and it is very cold in the mornings.  All learners must wear their WINTER UNIFORM. 

All transport is back to normal as usual, except learners will sanitize before they get on bus and their temperature will be taken.  If a learner’s temperature is too high, such learner will not be able to board the bus and will be send home.  Pls make sure that your child has supervision at all times until the bus leaves the pick up/drop off point.

We would like to thank all parents for the help and effort that were put into helping learners at home with homework and tasks.  We hope and trust that you will continue to do so, to help them achieve good results throughout the year.

Remember:  If your child is sick – keep him/her at home.  Don’t send any sick learner to school. 


Reports will be going out on Friday, 14th May.  Parents of learners that failed or did not do well, will be contacted to set up a meeting to discuss the problems. 


We do ask if you have any old clothing that you would like to get rid of, please send it to school.  We know it is difficult times and this is not compulsory.  We do thank all the parents that already sent clothing to school.


We are really watching the situation closely and will immediately react if necessary.   But until then school is back to normal and all learners must be at school.  Only learners that are ill must stay at home.  It is flu season and therefore we ask that all parents and learners take some extra precaution by taking vitamins to boost our immune system.


All fees for May month had to be paid already.  Make sure that your child’s fees are paid before or on the 3rd of each month.  Accounts that are in arrears must be settled ASAP. 

Learners will start to receive re-registration forms for 2022.   Please ask for the form, complete it and send it back before the due date.  Remember that a learner must re-apply every year for the following year.  Learners with behavioural problems and account problems will not be registered for the next academic year (only if the account is paid up and re-registration is approved by school).   Right of admission reserved.

Our spaces in each grade for 2022 in very limited.  Due to the fact that our school is full and most of our learners enrol for the following year, there will be limited spaces to fill with new applications.


VERY IMPORTANT:  We can only accommodate a certain number of learners from Grade 10 – 12.  So, learners will be evaluated on their June/July academic performance as well as their discipline record before they will be admitted in Grade 10 – 12.  A learner who fails Grade 10, 11 or 12 will not be re-admitted because of limited space.


We have spoken about discipline many times before.  We would like you just to remind your child about behaving on the bus and here at school.   We deal with ill mannered learners immediately to avoid any hampering of education during school hours.  But we also speak about discipline regularly to make sure every learner behaves well at all times. 

Please take time to speak to your child/ren about behaviour towards other children and adults.  Make sure they understand that it is not right to hurt other learners.  This is taken very serious and will not be tolerated at school.  There are not second chances for bullies.


Winter Uniform – As from 3 May all learners had to wear the full winter school uniform.  No other colour beanies, jerseys, scarfs or jackets will be allowed.  Make sure you purchase the correct uniform from Silver Cross in Pretoria-North.  Boys are not allowed to wear skinny pants, except those that are purchased from Silver Cross.  Parents must make sure that children are correctly dressed before they leave home in the morning.  If learners are not correctly dressed, parents will be called to bring

correct uniform or fetch learner from school.  All rules must be adhered to at all times. 


We are very proud of all the learners that worked so hard to be part of the TOP TEN IN EACH GRADE.  We hope and trust that this will encourage the others to also put in effort and do their best.
