We welcome all our learners and teachers back after the school vacation. We look forward to a constructive term and appeal to all our parents to assist and ensure that the core business of education is prioritised in the lives of their children. Please, examine and discuss the contents of the first term report with your child, giving praise where deserved and encouragement where needed.
LEARNER ATTENDANCE AND ACADEMICS
The second term is packed with academic demands and under the current COVID context simple daily tasks and expectations have become a huge challenge for learners and adults alike. Learners should apply themselves to ensure that they keep books up to date, complete tasks, homework and come to school ready to learn. Learners who sacrifice time and apply themselves can expect a good report at the end of the term.
It is with concern that we note too many learners not adhering to their attendance schedule. Learners are required to be at school as per the attendance roster. What we have detected is that learners attend once in the cycle, or worst case scenario, not at all for a complete week. This is creating HUGE ACADEMIC BARRIERS. I MUST APPEAL TO OUR PARENTS TO ENSURE THAT LEARNERS ARE PRESENT WHEN THEY ARE REQUIRED TO BE AT SCHOOL. As winter approaches, please do not keep learners at home if they are in good health, send them to school as this will only benefit them. Every single child`s future depends on a good educational foundation.
We congratulate the grade 4A class for being the Top collecting class for 2021. The learners will each receive a party-pack on the 18th-20th of May 2021.
We congratulate the following learners who will be treated to a Spur Meal on the 17th of May 2021 after their above average collected totals.

RETURN OF COLLECTING LISTS
Parents are reminded that all collecting lists are required to be returned to the school during the course of the week. Should a collecting list have been lost, parents are required to write a letter indicating the loss of the collecting list. While the period for collection has concluded, we still wish to encourage parents to make voluntary contributions to the collecting list.See the collection stats below in relation to non-contribution.
Total learner population = 955
Non- contribution total = 670
Contributing learners = 285
|GRADE||PERCENTAGE NON- CONTRIBUTION||“THE VALUE-ADD PROPOSITION FOR ALL PARENTS THAT CONTRIBUTE IS THAT DELTA PRIMARY IS ABLE TO DELIVER AN ABOVE AVERAGE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE IF WE HAVE THE FINANCES TO DO SO“|
|GRADE R||66 %|
Accurate as of 2021.05.07
We acknowledge the current economic climate and the impact this has on disposable income and thus appeal to parents who are in a position to make voluntary contributions to come to the table.
Be advised that the school will be closed on ASCENSION DAY – the 13th of May 2021.
