Parent meetings have been arranged for 3-4 May 2023. Regrettably due to the unpredictability of load shedding both sessions will be arranged as afternoon sessions i.e from 13:00 to 16:00. All parents are encouraged to approach their employer for time off in this regard. Class teachers will be sending available time slots which will allow some leeway for parents to propose suitable times for the one-on-one meetings. In this regard please be reminded that there are on average 38 learners per class whose parents have different daily routines and that each parent may not necessarily get the time they wish on a personal level. Therefore we urge all parents to be accommodating in this regard.
GRADE 6 OUTING TO THE AQUARIUM
Our learners thoroughly enjoyed themselves at the aquarium. We have received a good review as our boys and girls were good ambassadors for Delta Primary.
