MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

 It is my sincere hope that this early communication finds you and your family in good health and positive spirits. We extend a special welcome to the grade R learners and their parents. This is the beginning of a long scholastic journey that will be filled with many adventures. New parents are encouraged to remain a vested stakeholder at Delta Primary for the entire period of their child’s academic process at Delta Primary. Which means that you take a keen interest in school activities and support the school in all facets. We draw strength and direction from our school motto: “WE STRIVE FORWARD- ONS STREWE VORENTOE“.

SCHOOL STATIONERY

Please assist our teachers in this regard and ensure that all stationery indicated on the requirement list is purchased, to ensure that the business of education happens effectively.

SCHOOL UNIFORM

The school uniform remains the pride of the school. It creates a sense of belonging and gives us a sense of pride. We have slowly implemented the new school uniform. I wish to encourage all our parents to purchase the official uniform of the school at Yunisha Fashions in Grassy Park. Orders for uniform may also be placed at school.

Newsletter No 32 of 2021-End of year

REFLECTION 2021

What an awesome year 2021 has been despite the continued challenges of covid-19. Our school has achieved much over the 2021 academic year and the many blessings we have received have been absolutely breath-taking. I wish to express my thanks to all the boys and girls and our faithful parents who have supported us over this year. I’m confident that 2022 will be an amazing year! Find below a short synopsis of highlights in the 2021 academic and social year.

2021 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Successfully managing the covid-19 protocols throughout the 2021 academic year, which would not have been possible without the continued, timeous intervention and vigilance by all staff members.
  • The successful interpretation and execution of the annual teaching plans by teachers to ensure that our learners are educated.Inclusive of this is the successful assessment of each and every learner while on a rotational  basis.
  • Under challenging circumstances staff, with the support of parents, have continued with fundraising, to ensure that the school remains financially stable.
  • Daily feeding of all vulnerable learners including during the lockdown period of 2021.
  • The issuing of Santa shoe boxes to learners during the month of  December.
  • The supply of school shoes to vulnerable learners.
  • Deworming programming for all learners.
  • Retreat Library reading competition.
  • Library coloring in competition winners.
  • DCAS holiday sport programme.
  • The successful spoils supplied by Ps Jack at regular intervals.
  • Our 2 learners who received their WP colors for dance.
  • Vumatel collaboration leading to the installation of fiber at our school.
  • Annual Spur treat for our top collectors.
  • The drive-through fundraiser.
  • The annual awards ceremony hosted in November.

LEARNER SAFETY

The festive season brings along a sense of relaxation and a break from the demands of our daily routine. In this regard I wish to advocate that we be vigilant with regards to the safety of our children, in particular when we are near water. Please take special care that no evil, harm or danger overcomes our children during the vacation period. Monitor their movements strictly and ensure that you, at all times, know where your child is. 

MESSAGE TO GRADE 7 LEARNERS

Boys and girls, let me congratulate you on the successful completion of your primary school journey. Many of you started at Delta Primary in grade R and now you have reached the end of a chapter in your life. Know that we are extremely proud of each and every single one of you. We wish and hope that you make a success of your academic journey, that you make your parents proud and that you contribute positively to society. Let me remind you of what we have always instilled in you, that you must set goals for yourself and then carve out a plan to realize those goals. Remain positive at all times and surround yourself with people who help you attain those goals. God -speed to all of you.

THANK-YOU

A special thank-you to Mrs K Wentzel who so ably assisted the grade 6 class during the 2021 academic year. We wish her well for the future. Mr Satarien takes charge of the grade 6 class in the new year.

LEAVE 

Wishing Mrs Christian/Klaazen well over her maternity leave period and hoping to hear from her with the arrival of the new bundle of joy. Mrs Damon takes charge of the grade 5 class for the period that Mrs Christian/Klaazen is on maternity leave.

LEARNER ATTENDANCE STATS 

We have observed a pattern of absenteeism in many grades in relation to the rotational attendance model employed by the school. Learners are currently  not receiving their full quota of 5 days at school and this in itself creates huge gaps in their core knowledge. Learners who regularly absent themselves from school place enormous pressure on themselves and their teachers as they attempt to regain lost teaching time and acquire new knowledge. The data below indicate the levels of absenteeism amongst our learners for the 2021 academic year ( term 1-3)

TERM  ABSENTEEISM RATE FOR THE SCHOOL
TERM 1 16.8 %
TERM 2 22,4 %
TERM 3 26.2 %

The poor learner attendance amongst some of our learners must be a matter of urgency and focus amongst parents and guardians in 2022. We must as a collective encourage all learners to be at school when they are required to be here, as the antithesis could  lead to substandard academic achievement.

SAFETY ON THE ROADS

Santa shoebox – Delta Primary

For the second year, the learner outreach committee has engaged in the Santa shoebox drive. This initiative has been spearhead by teachers and supported by willing donors who have responded to the call during the course of the year. It has been heartwarming to see the delighted and joyous response from the learners as they we gifted the Santa shoebox. It is our intention to grow the initiative to realize an outcome where all our learners are able to be gifted with a Santa box during the month of December. From all of us at Delta Primary, thank you for your consistent support and have a blessed Christmas with family and friends
