NEWSLETTER 19 | TERM 3 – 2021

Good day to all parents


If your child is not feeling well or showing any symptoms of covid, please keep him/her at home and inform the register teacher.  It is not nice for a sick child to sit in class, while the parents knew the child wasn’t feeling well since he/she woke up.    Any sick learners will be sent home immediately.


The grade 12 learners are wearing a different pull over than the rest of the school.  It is a black pull over with buttons.  NOT A WHITE PULL OVER.  The white pull over is from many years ago and was discontinued.  No grade 12 learner can wear a white pull over, it must be the one with the buttons.


Please make sure that your account is up to date.  If you have any queries about your account, send an email to, attention Me Heidi van der Merwe.

It stays your responsibility to make sure that your account is correct.  Check the statement every month to avoid any problems at the end of the year.

It is of utmost importance to use the correct family code when paying school fees.  School fees are allocated to learner account according to family code.  No family code no allocation.  Wrong family code, wrong allocation.  As per contract, interest is charged monthly on outstanding accounts.


Please make sure that your child is wearing the correct winter uniform.  There are still many learners that are wearing the wrong uniform.  They are not allowed to wear any other beanie, except the Black Vossie’s Beanie, available at school. 


Please remind your child to behave on the bus.  Any child misbehaving or damaging property will be taken off the bus.  We have a ZERO TOLERANCE attitude against learners misbehaving or damaging property on the bus and at school.
