The school is following the protocols and guidelines as provided to us and the Department of Health officials have done a preliminary visit to the school today (13/07/2020).

The school is taking all necessary precautions and ensures that health guidelines are followed at school to minimize the risk of spreading the coronavirus. It must be noted that we have outside factors that may affect the school resulting in positive cases being identified at school.
Parents are also advised to keep children at home if they show any signs of illness and have them checked at the clinic or doctor if the symptoms persist.

We are currently on L3 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.
E-Learning material now available on our site.
Online testing is being piloted and can be found 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.
