NEWSLETTER 24 | TERM 3 – 2021

Good day to all parents

CAREER EXHIBITION FOR GRADE 9 AND GRADE 11 LEARNERS:

On the 8th of September we had about 25 different Tertiary institutions here that spoke to the grade 9 and 11 learners about career choices.  We believe that it will help them a great deal if they need to make subject choices or if they are going to apply at one of these institutions.

SICK / ILL LEARNERS:

We are having a problem with learners that are send to school being ill.  These learners are coming from home not feeling well.  Such learners need to be kept at home and taken to the doctor.  We are then phoning the parents to fetch the child in any case, because we can’t keep any sick / ill learner at school.  Please don’t send your child to school if he/she is ill.  Keep them at home until he/she is completely healed.

DROP OFF AND PICK UP – PARENTS:

Parents that drop off learners and pick up learners each day, must please not park in the road and first have a family meeting / taking a long time to get going again.  Make sure your child is ready with his/her school bag to just get out immediately when you stop.  Traffic is a problem and we would like every one to just obey the rules then the traffic will flow.  But learners that must first take bags out of the boot of the car and then talk to parents are really causing a traffic jam.  The school and security are trying our level best to make it easy for parents, but there are parents that is not making it easy for the school and other parents.

ENROLMENTS FOR 2022:

Our school are very blessed and we only have a limited number of spaces available for 2022 in different grades.  If you know about anyone that would like to enrol, they need to do it soon, as spaces are filling up quickly.

UNIFORM AND APPEARANCE RULES

SUMMER UNIFORM

DISCIPLINE:

Learners with good morals and values are learners who respect other people and do well in life.  They tend to excel in their work and are happy learners.

Unfortunately, we do have some unruly learners at school, which is creating a problem for us as teachers.  They are behind in homework, disrupt the class, are naughty on the bus.  We as school can’t tolerate this at all.  We have a responsibility towards other learners that are serious about work and performing well.  Unruly, bad behaved learners will be dealt with immediately so that education can take place in a calm and encouraging environment.  We do ask that you speak to your child about good and bad discipline and behaviour, at school and on the bus.  It saddens us to see how some learners are not listening at all.  Parents need to be stricter to avoid that some learners are lost along the way.

SUMMER HATS:

Learners are not allowed to wear beanies anymore.  Summer hats are available in the office. 

Cost:  R 100.00

They buy it in the office.

COVID-19:

We do ask that you still adhere to all rules and regulations regarding Covid.  Sanitize and wear your mask.

GENERAL:

There are rules in place for a reason.  All rules are clearly set out in the diary that each learner received in the beginning of the year.  It stays the responsibility of the parent to make sure that all learners are dressed according to the school rules and that all other rules are followed promptly.  Teachers are not at school to teach basic discipline rules, which should be done at home.  We would like to thank all those parents that are taking our hands and help form each individual learner to become the best adult and citizen one day.  We are NOT GOING TO TOLERATE ANY PROBLEMS (bad behaviour, not correctly dressed, not obeying rules) ANYMORE.  Parents will be contacted to come and fetch problem learners immediately at school.  We have been lenient long enough and Covid is not an excuse.
