LATEST NEWS ON RETURN OF GRADES:
ONLY GRADE 3 IS EXPECTED TO BE AT SCHOOL ON 20 JULY 2020.
GRADES 1 and 2 are expected to retun on 27 July, Grade 4 on 17 August and Grade 5 on 31 August. The date for the Grade R return is still to be communicated to us by the Provincial Deparment.
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.
Note that the school is in the process of planning for the return of all learners as per return dates and will only work on 50% of learners at school as per the guidelines to ensure social distance is maintained. Once the plan is finalized, parents will be informed and the plan will be on our website as well.

Our school has a contractor appointed for the construction of toilets. In terms of the agreement, local general workers will be required for the construction period. Interested persons are requested to look out for the advert at key areas within the town of Kranskop as well as our website.
We are currently on L3 of the NATIONAL LOCK DOWN (Covid-19)
We are fully operational with the Grade 6 and 7 learners back at school. Grade 3 learners are expected on 20 July 2020. A new school calendar is out and we will have only a short recess before school closes for all on 15 December 2020. Details will be updated once all dates are officially received.
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.

E-Learning material 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
