Congratulations to all the athletes that took part.  We are very proud of you.  Thank you to Mrs. Rina vd Merwe and her team that organised it for the learners.

PARENT DAYS:  (parents will be seen individually)  See dates above:  14h00 – 16h00

We will be hosting parent day for each grade.  Some parents will receive an invite, which means that your child did not pass the term, or your child needs specific attention to do better the next term. 

Grade R – 3 will invite parents on specific days at specific times.  They have already started with their parent days.

No learner will be put through, if they pass, they have passed on their own.  If a learner is constantly progressed to the next grade, how can such learner then pass grade 12 and be on standard??


Winter is here and it has become necessary to get our winter uniform out.  As from the 1st of May 2022 all learners will be wearing the winter uniform to school.  Please make sure you buy the correct winter uniform.  Learners with wrong uniform will have to phone their parents to bring the correct uniform before they can go back to class.  Parents must also check the time table and make sure that learners only wear the PT uniform (tracksuit pants) when they have PT.  If learner is wearing the wrong uniform parents will have to bring the correct uniform.  (Grade 4 – 12)

We really have a problem with the high school boys’ trousers.  If they don’t wear the one from Silver Cross they don’t wear a skinny pants at all.  Then they wear the normal black school trousers available at Silver Cross.  If we keep on having a problem with boys tailoring their own pants to be skinny looking, we are going to change the school rule to Normal black school trousers for all boys.  Then nobody will be wearing the skinny pants anymore.

We have now spoken about this many times but still there are boys not adhering to this rule.  Parents need to check the uniform before the learners leave home in the morning.  We are going to call parents to bring the correct pants to school before the boy can go to class. 

If your child’s uniform is to small, please donate it to the school that we can distribute it to those that might be in a predicament.  These donations can be handed in at the office.


Learners failing in HIGH SCHOOL:   Space is becoming a huge problem.  Remember – If your child is in Grade 8, he/she re-register for 2023 for Grade 9, etc.  We do not keep space for learners who fail.  Please talk to your child and make sure they work hard and pass the year.  A learner who fails the grade will not be having space the following year.  Such learners will have to apply at other schools in time.  We have informed all parents in L1T1 2022 about this. 

Learners that fail Mathematics and Science will not be able to carry on with these subjects the following year.  This is not negotiable.  Our teachers are working hard and we also had spoken to parents about the above mentioned 2 subjects.  So, if you want your child to continue with these 2 subjects if they failed them in 2022 you will have to apply at another school in time.

Grade 9 learners of 2022 must have an average of at least 60% in Mathematics and Natural Sciences to be able to choose Mathematics and Science in grade 10, 2023.  This will be adhered too.

We have limited space in grade 10 – 12 and we will not have learners playing or not interested in a subject take a subject and then fails it at the end of each term.
