CONCERT TICKET SALES 

 Parents are advised that the sale of concert tickets for both the 10 September and the 17 September concerts go on sale as of next week Friday. The ticket pricing shall be as follows: Adults aged 15 upwards- R40, Children under the age of 15 will pay R20. Learners participating in the concert will not be required to pay. It is the intention of the planning committee that we start our concert at approximately 11.00 – 11.30. Given that the concerts are happening on Saturdays we urgently request that all stakeholders make the necessary logistical arrangements well in advance to ensure that all learners are present for the concert. We have also planned food sales for the day, this detail will be shared with all parents in coming newsletters. The concert is one of the first major events for the school since the lifting of the restrictions on gatherings. The learners are excited to show you as parents what they have been practicing over the past few weeks. Please, do not disappoint them by being absent on the day of the concert. I Am sure that you would agree, it is wonderful to see your child up on the stage!

 HOMEWORK AND ACADEMICS

Homework, completing assignments, and preparing for tests are absolutely crucial for academic success. We detect with concern that the ethos of completing homework, studying for tests and submitting assignments remain a challenge for a large component of our learners in all grades. The ethos of hard work must be instilled in all our learners. The pursuit for excellence must be in the conscience of every child at Delta Primary. In this regard we ask all our parents to remind their children of the reason for attending school, as we will do the same while the learners are at school.

 SCHOOL UNIFORM

Learners are reminded that they are required to be dressed in school uniform up to and including the last day of the term. Our foundation learners have responded to this call in vast majorities, displaying neat and consistent wearing of the uniform. We do note with concern that far too many senior learners are dressed in different color hoodies and expensive takkies while their uniform is amiss. It would be so fantastic to see all our learners neatly dressed in school uniform as prescribed in the code of conduct. I Am sure that you would agree, what a beautiful sight it is to see when learners are dismissed and observers view learners in their school uniform. It is also noted that some of the learner`s uniforms require to be stitched and repaired due to daily usage. We wish to remind all our parents that the school has introduced a lay-buy system for the purchase of school uniforms. This means that parents may indicate to the school the item they wish to purchase and may then reserve the item and pay off the account over 3 months and upon completion of the payment the uniform is issued to the child. Should this be an option you wish to explore, please make contact with the school secretary either via telephone or via a message in the message book indicating your intention to do a lay-buy. 

SALE OF TOP UP STATIONERY

The school is able to offer our learners the opportunity to purchase top up stationery voluntarily if they so desire. Pencils are sold at R1 and pens are sold at R2. These prices are well below the current market prices. Please encourage our learners to have the necessary stationery with them at all times

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

“Either you run the day or the day runs you“

Every day you get up, make a promise to take control of the circumstances of your life. If you choose to run your day, you will probably try every means to get the best out of your life. Don’t let your life conditions determine what you want out of life. Make it a habit to wake up exactly when you want, set the tone for your day, accomplish some pretty amazing things, and the day will play out the way you want it to be. – by Jim Rohn
