Site last updated: 15 January 2021
Currently on L3 Lock down – please follow all protocols/regulations to curb the spread! Save lives.
Schools reopen on 15 February for learners. Parents will be informed via WhatsApp and twitter (@kranskopprimary) of changes.
We welcome Ms J Maharaj (our admin) as a fully fledged teacher from January 2021. She will teach some subjects in the Foundation Phase as well as in the Intermediate Phase. She will also assist with Admin work until we have a suitable replacement from the Department, and we appeal to visitors / parents to be patient while we find a suitable SGB paid person to assist on a temporary basis (post will be from 1 April 2021).
SGB ELECTIONS 2021 – ELECTION MONTH IS MARCH 2021.
more details will be provided during February 2021.
The AGM / BUDGET 2021 meeting was held on 19 November 2020 at 11:00 in the School Hall. The draft budget for 2021 was presented and accepted without changes. The following is put in place for 2021 (and is on Voluntary basis, as we are a no-fee school):
- The voluntary fee for 2021 will be R120 each. This is to offset the cost to pay/employ additional volunteers for teaching as well as cleaning;
- New admissions is R150 each (remains unchanged);
- Extra curricular transport will be collected as and when required.
- Use of electronic media (tablets/ smartphones) is expected to commence during term 2 of 2021 – details to be finalised in term 1 of 2021.
WhatsApp : Our school has a WhatsApp data number. During January 2021 we will be moving to a single WhatsApp group to minimize sending same information to the different groups. We shall also be piloting Telegram (an alternate to WhatsApp as it has more features). The group will be named KPS-Parents and will be used by the school to post information to all parents relating to school matters, including circulars and notices. Parents will not be able to respond on this group. Parents can use the “reply privately” function of a message to send messages to the school. 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!)
Parents are urged to ensure that all messages sent by the school, are read timeously to avoid any misunderstanding or miscommunication. At times messages are posted a day before or on the same day due to changes from the Education Department, and is beyond our control.
Admissions for 2021 are still 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 on 27 January 2021. Interested parents now have ample time to obtain the SASAMS printed out TRANSFER FORM from schools as the SMT members are expected to be at school from 25 January 2021
Internal school Circular Notice 14/20 has been issued with the end of year reports. The circular is available here.
We once again direct all parents to the E-LEARNING page where we have some online material for all grades.
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.
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.
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.
