A Fundraising Meeting will be held next Tuesday (20 March) at 18:30 in the Staff Room. Any parents, who are interested in joining the Fundraising Committee, are welcome to attend this meeting.
Parents, please ensure your child travels in a secure and roadworthy form of transport to and from school. We have noticed some children arriving in vehicles which are not roadworthy (which can be life threatening).
If any educator reports that your child has been disrespectful, please discuss this matter very seriously with him or her. Please remember Transparency, Honesty and Accountability.
Please don’t tell your children, who are at high school, to wait outside our school. Their idle hands just get into trouble. No high school pupils will be allowed to wait outside our school gates or on our premises. Any high school pupils, who fetch younger brothers and/or sisters, will only be allowed onto our school premises by themselves and not in groups.
Despite numerous requests to parents to fetch their children timeously, we are still experiencing difficulties with children who sit for more than twenty minutes in the car-park waiting to be fetched. This leads to problems which management have to deal with. THESE PROBLEMS WOULD NOT OCCUR IF CHILDREN WERE TAKEN HOME TIMEOUSLY.
The school cannot take responsibility for any money or valuable possessions brought to the school. Cell phones, expensive watches, costly shoes, sports equipment, jewellery, electronic toys and gadgets are not permitted.
If your child is in Grade 3, parents must please make sure that all items of uniform are marked. An Oxford dictionary is a necessity for the Grade Threes. This must be purchased and can be used until the higher grades. Please would all the Grade Three learners bring magazines for our food pyramid collage.
If your child is in Grade 4, learners need the following:
1 Afrkaans magazines urgently to work in class.
2 Knitting needles 4.5 mm and thick wool by Friday 16 March 2012.
Please supervise homework and sign diaries on a daily basis.
Children will not be able to take out books from the Media Centre from next Monday (19 March) until the end of the term. Parents, please ensure that all Media Centre books are returned to school by the end of this week. We would like to advise parents that a fine will be charged for overdue books.
Avoid foods with artificial additives. Reduce the intake of sugar and sweets. Cut down on refined carbohydrates. If you use them, keep them for treats/parties during weekends.
In an endeavour to ensure that our learners look neat at all times when wearing their uniforms, we bring to your attention the following school uniform rule:
Please help us to maintain our high standards.
Food, stationery and projects for learners are constantly being brought to the School Office. As stated in Circular No 1, only spectacles and medication will, in future, be passed on to learners. We reiterate that a nourishing, home packed school lunch should be sent daily to school with your child. He/she should also remember all his/her books, stationery and projects every day. We cannot call children down to the office to collect items.
Children are not permitted to sell articles at school under any circumstances. Please assist us in this matter.
Various companies offer samples to us for distribution to our children. We do our best to ensure that the articles on offer are suitable and we distribute them fairly to all. Certain companies send representatives to hand these samples to children off our premises. This is not allowed and will be stopped as school children are not to be used for marketing campaigns.
A friendly reminder to link your MAKRO (Woodmead Branch only) Card to the school and to use it and your MySchool Card, whenever possible. MySchool Application Forms are available at the School Office or parents may apply on line to www.myschool.co.za.
Our Mini City Councillors (Tamara Chinganya and Mbali Dlamini) are currently busy with our annual Easter egg collection. We ask that all our learners support this worthy cause by bringing Easter eggs to school during the next couple of weeks. Educators will keep them locked up in their store-rooms until the final collection date which is Monday 26 March. These Easter eggs will be given to underprivileged children. We would love our school to win this year so please bring in as many Easter eggs as possible.
A Holiday Club will be held at the school from Monday 2 April until Thursday 5 April. For further information, kindly contact Mrs Hill on 082-460-4200 or (011) 804-1804.

The Eats and Treats Sale which was held last Thursday was successful. Due to the excellent response of the Grade 6 children, an amount of R1 660.00 was raised. We thank parents of our Grade 6 learners for their support. A big thank you too to the Grade 6 educators for encouraging their children to bring Eats and Treats, as well as to all those Grade 7 children, who helped at the sale. Mr Kok’s class won the trophy.
