  • After 13h55 and 14h25 respectively ALL learners must leave the school via the Valda Street entrances. No learners will be allowed to leave the school via the Crozier Street entrance as there is no scholar patrol in this road.
  • These arrangements may seem tedious, but they’re made to ensure the safety of your children.
  • Foundation Phase learners who need to make use of waiting class until 14h25 (Mondays) and 13h35 (Tuesday – Fridays), must remain in the classroom. THE ONLY LEARNERS WHO SHOULD MAKE USE OF THE WAITING CLASSES ARE THE ONES WHO HAVE OLDER BROTHERS AND/OR SISTERS IN THE SCHOOL AND ARE WAITING FOR THEM FOR TRANSPORT. NO OTHER LEARNERS WILL BE ACCOMMODATED IN THE WAITING CLASS!
  • Parents are not to sit outside the classrooms before school closes as this tends to become a disruptive factor to the surrounding classes. By the same token, parents are not to fetch their Grade 1, 2 & 3 child/ren and then sit outside the Intersen Phase classes with those learners. They become a disturbance to the other classes.

  • Educators are not available to meet with any parents/guardians during teaching time, unless a prior arrangement has been made when the educator has administrative time.
  • If you wish to discuss a matter concerning your child, it is preferable to set up an appointment with the relevant educator via the homework diary or through the secretaries.
  • If, after discussions with the educator, you wish to see the Principal, appointments during school hours may be made through the secretaries.
