NEWSLETTER | TERM 2 – 2018

Good day

WINTER UNIFORM:

Learners must wear the correct winter uniform.  Learners with wrong uniform will be send to the office and the parents will be informed immediately.  Parents will have to bring the correct uniform to school or fetch their child from school to purchase the correct uniform.

EXAM TIMES:

After receiving time table from district, the school will be out at 12h00 FROM THE 30TH OF MAY 2018.

Remember that during the exam school will be out at 12h00.  All buses will leave directly after the last session which is 12h00.

If your child is making use of taxi or after care transport, please inform them about this arrangement, because no learner can be at school later than 12h15 during exams.  These learners will still wait in the waiting area, but it is only until 12h15.  We don’t communicate to the own transport, so it stays the responsibility of the parent to inform them.

WAITING AREA (14H00 – 14H20)

As you know we have mentioned in the previous letters about the new waiting area for learners not making use of the bus transport after school.  It was completed on Monday 14th of May.  We have send out several letters explaining the procedure about the waiting area.  No learner will be accommodated after 14h20 in the afternoon.  It stays the responsibility of the parent to inform the after care or taxi to pick the child up not later than 14h20 in the afternoon.  If the parents are picking up their kids themselves, please make sure you are here on time.  The security is not responsible for your child.  We do ask that you make the necessary arrangements for when exams start.  School will be out at 12h00 and all learners must be picked up not later than 12h15.
