Newsletter No 23 of 2020
Weekly attendance data
Assessment and Progression
Be advised that learners must complete assessments to determine whether they shall be progressed to the next grade. As yet, we have not been informed of anything to the contrary. Under level 1, all learners are required to return to school except the learners who have officially applied for home schooling with the WCED
Implementation of Uniform
Please be advised that learners are required to wear their school uniform once in the rotation as of the 5th of October 2020. This means that a learner in group 1 may wear their uniform on a Monday and a learner in group 2 may wear their uniform on Wednesday.
Closure of the Grade R Class
Be advised that the grade 4 Afrikaans class shall be discontinued at the end of the academic year. Parents and learners have been informed of this development via class communication. The option of language change or school transfer (parental responsibility) has been afforded to the affected parents.
Planned Fundraising Events
Parents, as you are aware the school has not generated any form of income via fundraising events. This has put the school in dire financial straits. As of October we shall resume the following fundraising activities:
Re-opening of the tuck- shop (mobile tuck shop)
The sale of hot-dogs
The fundraising committee engaged in a strategy meeting during the course of the week and shall present plans for continued fundraising until the end of the academic year. We thus call on our parents and families to support these fundraising initiatives in the interest of the school.

“We must look for ways to be an active force in our own lives. We must take charge of our own destinies, design a life of substance and truly begin to live our dreams.“- Les Brown
