WhatsApp : Our school has a WhatsApp data number and we have created 2 groups to communicate with parents – KRANSKOP PS – INTERSEN (4-7) and KRANSKOP PS – FP (R-3). Parents are requested to update their contact details and provide us with the data number if different from the cell number. Send a request to 081 641 6944 to be added to the school WhatsApp group. The request should include the full name and grade of the learner(s) as well as the name and surname of the parent. As from 2021, this will be the primary communication method, followed by circulars and last SMS. (SMSes are proving to be costly for the school!)
Our school is following the alternate day time table model.
This works over 2 weeks and each class will have an equal number of days lessons during the 10 day period.
All the “A” classes are to report to school as normal from Monday, 12 October 2020.
School will close on 23 October for a week break and re-open on 2 November 2020. All A classes will report on 2 November 2020.
A special arrangement is made for all Grade 5 learners until informed of the change. ALL GRADE 5 (A and B) LEARNERS ARE TO COME TO SCHOOL EVERY DAY. The teachers have noted a need to cover curriculum aspects that may not be completed before the final assessments are conducted. Parents are urged to ensure that their children (Grade 5) are at school daily. The normal alternate day time table will be followed for all other Grades, with the A classes coming in on 12 October, and B classes on 13 October etc.
GRADE 1 parents are reminded that their children (both A class and B class) are to be present on 14 October as the Health Department will be conducting the annual screening of the learners – THIS IS NOT COVID-19 RELATED. The learners are to please carry the Clinic / Road to Health Card and have the consent form completed by 14 October.
Parents are urged to ensure that if any child is not well (Flu like symptoms), the child should remain at home and parents should seek medical care/advise for the child. If any child displays any symptoms specifically related to the FLU, the child will be isolated and parent contacted to fetch the child from school. We cannot have our school open and close due to this pandemic – we must ensure that we take all the necessary precautions as a school and community to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Admissions for 2021 are open. All applications to be completed at school.
The following documents are required:
- ID of both parents/guardians;
- Birth Certificate for the child;
- last report to be printed from SASAMS;
- Provisional Transfer form printed from SASAMS (School will provide this);
- Clinic Card and
- a once off admission fee of R150.
Note that in order to finalise admissions, only the original SASAMS printed out TRANSFER FORM and Final Report will be accepted when school reopens – parents to provide these documents before school commences for the learners in January 2020 (date to be confirmed)
Internal school Circular Notice 12/20 has been issued to learners who are attending school as per the alternate day schedule. The circular is available here.
Parents are requested to ensure that the planned alternate days tuition programme is followed to avoid overcrowding at school.
The school has also prepared booklets for home study for those learners who may not return to school until after parents feel it is safe for them to return. These booklets are available at school and parents are to come collect the booklets only between 10:00 and 11:00.
Parents will have to complete the Exemption of learner to attend school form obtained here (or at school) and submit to the school for consideration.
We once again direct all parents to the E-LEARNING page where we have some online material for all grades.
The contractor for the building of toilets – 3 Blocks – is on site and the project has commenced.
Parents are advised to please ensure that the consent form for COVID-19 testing is completed and submitted timeously to school.
The school is taking all necessary precautions and ensures that health guidelines are followed at school to minimize the risk of spreading the corona virus. It must be noted that we have outside factors that may affect the school resulting in positive cases being identified at school.
I 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.

WE ARE CURRENTLY ON LEVEL 1 OF THE NATIONAL LOCK DOWN (Covid-19)
Due to screening before learners are allowed to enter the school premises, delays are expected before the actual lessons commence, and we appeal to parents to ensure that the protocols must be followed once school commences – that is all learners (and communities) must ensure that social distance of at least 1.5 meters is observed at all times. LATE COMING will not be accepted – as per our school code of conduct and school times and other policies. All learners will have to be dropped off at the gate so that screening on a daily basis can be conducted. The details of all drivers (vehicles dropping off learners) will be required as well on a daily basis – as per regulations for contact tracing. THE COOPERATION OF ALL STAKEHOLDERS WILL BE APPRECIATED TO LIMIT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19. The pavement leading to the school has been marked and all learners, including visitors, must follow the queue to the screening station. It is compulsory for all entering the school to have a mask on. Visitors will only be allowed if they have made an appointment with the principal prior to coming to school. LEARNERS HAVE BEEN PROVIDED WITH 2 MASKS EACH AND WE DO NOT HAVE ANY SPARE. LEARNERS WITHOUT MASKS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED INTO THE SCHOOL – AS PER DEPARTMENTAL REGULATIONS
E-Learning material is now available on our site.
Online testing is being piloted and can be found here.
English basic vocabulary word lists (1000 words) can be found in the e-learning page here.
IsiZulu vocabulary word list is also available 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 e-books 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.
All learners will receive their term 1 reports when and as they return to school when school reopens.
The AGM and Budget 2019 meeting was held on 6 November 2019. The final decision taken was as follows:
- The voluntary fees for returning learners is R100 for the 2020 year. This may be paid in installments.
- First time admissions will be R150 for the year.
- Transports costs for extra curricular activities (sports & excursions) will be collected as and when the need arises.
- 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.
Note that once normal schooling resumes, the updated Assessment programme will be made available. This is due to the change of the school academic year due to Covid-19. The assessment plan has been changed and the number of assessments required are reduced due to the number of school days lost. At present, examinations will only be written at the end of year. Once we have received the updated assessment plan, it will be posted on our website.
Circular 12 of 20 has been issued on 10 September 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.
The 2020 Assessment plan for each Grade is available here.
Our intervention programme for all Grades is ongoing – Grade 4 learners is on Monday and Wednesday, while the Grade 5 to 7 learners is on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Tuesday and Thursday is for extra-curricular (sports) training during Term 1. The times are indicated under SCHOOL TIMES.
