NEWSLETTER 14 | TERM 2 – 2019

Good day


SCHOOL UNIFORM:
Learners with the wrong uniform will be taken out and parents will have to bring the correct uniform to school.  Such learners will not be allowed in the class until they have the correct uniform.

IMPORTANT DATES:

Voting Day:  School closed8 May 2019


STRIKES OR TOTAL SHUTDOWNS:
There are many warnings put on social media about strikes or shutdowns.  The school will not be closed for the above reason.  The buses will be on the route on these days, but if the driver sees that an area is unsafe, he is not going to jeopardize the safety of the learners, himself or the bus to try and go in.  The bus will turn around and bring the learners that he already picked up to school.  Learners that are not picked up, will have to make use of own transport to get to school.  Many times social media is blowing up these stories to create panic and confusion.  If it is a very serious strike and we received information from the Department of Education to close we will send an SMS to all parents informing them that there will be no school and that it is beyond our control.

We will never jeopardize the safety of learners and staff.  The bus company doing the transport of CVC learners will always let us know about dangerous situations in areas.  They will not send the buses into a dangerous situation.

LEARNERS PLAYING WWE – FIGHTING:
We are experiencing problems with learners that are playing WWE at school.  They don’t intend to hurt or harm each other because it is innocent playing.  But sometimes they do intend to be a bit intense and then one learner gets hurt and parents complain.  But these learners don’t realise that they can hurt each other badly.  They see this on TV and think they can also do it.  We do ask that you speak to your child and explain the consequences of playing WWE at school.  We have spoken to them a few times but there are still learners playing WWE at school.  Our teachers are on playground duty and report these incidents immediately, but it can be avoided if learners just obey the rules.

Regards
Mr. JS Diedericks
Operational Principal
