NEWSLETTER 9 | TERM 2 – 2021

Good day to all parents

PHASING IN OF ALL GRADES:

After careful consideration and planning we have decided to phase back the grades so that all learners will be attending every day.

All protocols, health and safety regulations will still be followed every day.

GRADEDATE ALL LEARNERS OF GRADE WILL BE RETURNING TO SCHOOL
Grade 12Already back at school
Grade 1115 April 2021 – Already back at school
Grade 3, 4, 7 and 1021 April 2021 – Already back at school
Grade 2, 6 and 93 May 2021
Grade 1, 5 and 810 May 2021
Grade RR & Grade RAlready back at school

All is going very well here at school.  We do ask you to constantly remind your child about the following:  Keeping social distance, wearing a mask and sanitizing or washing hands regularly, even if they are not at school.

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. 

HOLIDAY DATES:

SCHOOL CLOSING23 April 2021
SCHOOL HOLIDAY26 April – 30 April
PUBLIC HOLIDAY27 April – Freedom Day

SCHOOL FEES:

When paying your school fees, make sure your family code is correct.  Also remember that your fees are payable before or on the 3rd of each month for the month.  If you haven’t paid for April yet, make sure to do so ASAP.  May month’s school fees is payable on or before the 3rd of May 2021.

DISCIPLINE:

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. 

LIMITED SPACE IN FET PHASE: (Refer to L8T2 2021)

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.

ABSENT LEARNERS:

If your child is absent from school, it is your responsibility to inform the class teacher early in the morning before school starts.  Arrange with the teacher that the work for that specific day will be collected after school or mailed to you.

Winter is here and with COVID-19 still here, it is necessary to take vitamin C or boosters to avoid getting ill.  IT is important to boost the immune system during the winter time.  If your child is ill, please keep him/her at home or take them to the doctor.

PHOTO ORDERS:

Thank you to all the parents for the orders that we have received.  Photo orders were finalized and collected by the photographer on Monday 19 April 2021.

SCHOOL UNIFORM:

Winter Uniform – As from 3 May all learners must 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 hope and trust that it will be a good term for all of us.  We will take hands and strengthen the circle between, parent, learner and school so that all can achieve good results at the end of this term.

Enjoy your weekend and the mid term break.

Regards

Mr.JS Diedericks
