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.
Due to teachers testing for COVID-19 our school will be closed from 16 September until all teachers receive their results – this is in line with current policies/regulations. We expect our school to be functioning on Monday – if all results are received by 19 September 2020. Parents will be informed via sms to confirm the reopening of the school and the site will be updated as well. All “A” class learners will report for school when we re-open. Parents can access the e-learning material for the next few days to complete / revise. Some of the learners have received booklets and the work should be completed during this period of leave.
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 schedule reflected below. The circular is available here.
The time table for rotational teaching commenced on 31 August 2020 has been issued as Circular 11 of 20 on 25 August. We have selected the alternate day model for the classes as A and B. Simply put, the A classes will report on 31 August, stay at home on 1 September and return on 2 September….while the B class will come on 1 September, stay home on 2 September and return on 3 September…. this pattern continues until the end of the year. The learners will be expected to complete the work given on the “day off” for submission to the teacher when they return to school.
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.
