We welcome all our learners and teachers back after the school vacation. We look forward to a constructive term three and appeal to all our parents to assist and ensure that the core business of education is prioritised in the lives of our learners. We have once again emphasised to all our learners the importance of being well disciplined while at school. We appeal to our parents to speak to each individual learner about positive behaviour at school. We are halfway through the academic year, and learners have received two consecutive end of term reports. Learners must spend their time reflecting on their report and come to the inevitable conclusion that sacrifice is required if they wish to be academically successful.
