Dear Parents/Guardians

The 2019 academic year is off to a great start. As per usual, teaching and learning started on the first day of the school year. Teachers are working in earnest to prepare their learners for the upcoming March examination. Parents are encouraged  put strict disciplines in place to ensure that learners allocate study time every day.

Our matric after classes started in January. We appeal to parents to make the necessary travel arrangement in order that learners can attend these very important classes.

Safety of our learners: The safety of our learners are of paramount importance and we threfore want to remind visitors (including parents) that they MUST report to the school reception. No persons are allowed to wonder on the school grounds, sports field or visit classroom without permission from the school management.

Discipline: We are experiencing an increase in discpline issues, especially in some of our Grade 10 classes. Some learners are displaying immature and rude behaviour, such as being disruptive, tossing papers around in class, swearing, no working in class and not doing homework. We have implemented discipline intervention session with our SGB members in these classes. We appeal to parents to emphasise the importance of good behaviour at school to the learners.
