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 staff;
- 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. Our KPS-Parents group is now functional. Parents wishing respond to the messages can do so privately. This is to prevent unnecessary data usage for some. We shall also be piloting Telegram (an alternate to WhatsApp as it has more features). Parents can send a request to 081 341 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.
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.
