From the Principal’s Desk:

Dear Parents,

Thank you for the overwhelming response to the Parents Information Evening.  As staff and management we have an objective to improve the overall academic and sporting performance of our learners.  The teachers will also make every endeavour to attend as many workshops and training sessions to ensure that we are up-skilled.

I am pleased to announce that the school has grown in numbers and we will be opening an additional Grade R class this year.  Plans are underway to get this project going.

Once again we urge parents to be fully participative in the education of their children.  Kindly monitor homework daily.  Become aware of all the assessment dates and ensure that your child is fully prepared for each test or assessment.

Make sure your home environment is suitable for studying.  There must be a quiet place for children to study.  Ensure that you know how your child is doing in every assessment.  If problems are noted please contact the school to initiate early interventions.

Make sure that your child reads daily.  We encourage parents to read to their children daily.  Make sure that your child becomes a member of the local library.

Kindly read all notices and newsletters to ensure that you are aware of what is happening at the school.

If you wish to see me or any of the teachers please make an appointment.

Mrs. Padayachee



Newsletter JANUARY – FEBRUARY 2015

Newsletter February 2014

From the Principal’s Desk:

Dear Parents

Last year at a planning meeting, we as a staff chose a theme for the year called “Taking Responsibility”.  This theme will serve as a focus for how we operate.

As teachers we take responsibility by ensuring that we are thoroughly prepared for all lessons, mark books on time and report speedily.  We take responsibility for the well being of pupils by being observant, reporting any concerns to the principal and parents and by putting in place interventions to support the learners.

As parents we encourage you to take responsibility by supporting your children, monitoring progress, paying your school fees.  Report any concerns to the class teachers.

We wish to inculcate in the learners the importance of taking responsibility for their actions, decisions and well being.  This means they take responsibility for the environment by ensuring they don’t litter.  They keep the classroom and grounds clean.

They take responsibility for their belongings i.e. their personal belongings, text books and stationery.  They take responsibility by doing homework, studying and coming to school on time.

Let’s work together, to ensure that our children are always the priority and we work towards their success.

Mrs. Padayachee
