Dear parents

The call for moral regeneration in our society, however irksome it is when voiced by politicians, is nevertheless a vital one. We have a responsibility to our children to teach them to respect authority and be accountable for their own behaviour. That is the measure of a functional member of any society.

Please assist us in this training by supporting us in an effort to hold the students accountable for their responsibilities.

TESTS

These are scheduled regularly and should be seen as a priority. If, for a reason deemed important enough by the parent, a child will not be at school on the day of the test, it is expected that the school is notified BY THE PARENT prior to the test date. The child will be given ONE opportunity to write the test upon their return. Failure to do this will result in the child being awarded nil.

EXAMINATIONS

These are scheduled in advance and cannot be negotiated. Alternative arrangements to write exams will only be considered in serious cases. Exams missed will not be allocated marks.

ABSENTEEISM

We reiterate that it is the responsibility of parents to inform the school when their child is absent. Phone the office before 8:30am in order to avoid a call from the school. We will follow up on those who are marked absent without leave to ensure that parents are aware of their child’s absence.

DATES TO DIARISE:

  • MONDAY 8 APRIL SCHOOL REOPENS
  • TUESDAY 9 APRIL STUDENTS RETURN
  • TUESDAY 16 APRIL PTA MEETING - 7:00pm
  • MONDAY JUNE 3 MID YEAR EXAMS START
  • FRIDAY 21 JUNE TERM ENDS

Have a blessed Easter. We trust that you will enjoy quality time with your family and we look forward to facing the challenges of the new term.

God bless

Rob Minnie

Principal
