WELCOME

The staff thank all parents for the confidence in our school. Parental support ensures that our goals are met and our children get the best possible education at our school.

Notice Board

The site has been updated on 4 April 2020.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, a  NATIONAL LOCK DOWN from midnight 26 March 2020 up to 16 April 2020 has been declared. School re-opening date to be confirmed.

For more information on the Coronavirus visit the Covid-19 page here.

E-Learning material now available on our site. The links can be accessed hereE-learning

English Reading Material can be accessed here and IsiZulu reading material here.

We encourage all to adhere to the lock down during this period to curb the spread of this virus.

We also encourage all learners to engage in fruitful reading during this time and to spend some time going through their Workbooks for revision purposes.

A READING page has been set up on our site with spelling words for all learners to learn – this will help in the upcoming SPELLING BEE competition as well as in building their vocabulary. We have a few ebooks in English and IsiZulu for Grade 1 to Grade 3 learners available and will be adding more as we find suitable e-books. For parents wanting to access the Department website that has been set up to provide e-learning content during this period, the site can be accessed here

An E-learning page has been set up to help the learners to revise and prepare for Term 2 when schools re-open. If all learners engage in the activities / revision provided in the e-learning page, this will ensure that the teaching and learning process when schools resume, will not be further compromised with having to do revision of term 1 work. Parents / caregivers have an important role to play during this time, by allowing the leaner time to do some school activities. Remember that school was to have re-opened on 31 March 2020.

All learners will receive their term 1 reports when school reopens. A circular will also be issued to inform parents of the changes that will need to be carried out to catch up on the lost time.

 

BUDGET 2020

The AGM and Budget 2019 meeting was held on 6 November 2019. The final decision taken was as follows:

  1. The voluntary fees for returning learners is R100 for the 2020 year. This may be paid in installments.
  2. First time admissions will be R150 for the year.
  3. Transports costs for extra curricular activities (sports & excursions) will be collected as and when the need arises.
  4. The school will embark on other fundraising activities as well – Civvies day, cake sales, tuck shop rental, fun day, photographs – to supplement the income.

An appeal is made to all parents to contribute to the voluntary fees to ensure that we are able to continue to provide some temporary employment as required.

 

The 2020 Term 1 Assessment programme is online and will be issued to learners by 31 January 2020 (learners have received this). The Assessment section has the time table for the March Tests.

Circular 8 of 20 has been issued on 2 March 2020.

Kindly ensure that you child /ward is at school every school day to ensure success at the end of the year.

Parents, kindly ensure that all learners are at school before 07:30. The first lesson commence at 07:45.

All learners have been issued with a basic stationery pack as well as some of the textbooks. Parents will be required to purchase additional stationery items not issued – these will be subject and grade specific. A circular will be issued indicating the items required.  All books issued are to be neatly labelled and covered. Parents will be required to replace the lost books as per Departmental instructions on retrieval of text books. Circular S12 of 2013 as well as Circular S1 of 2019 issued by the national Department has reference.
