I would also like to request that as from Monday 18 January parents refrain from going onto the corridor after the bell has gone, the same applies for the afternoon. Please remain standing on the grass. It causes disruption in the classes. Thank you for your co-operation.

A request to parents to please refrain from parking on the lawns of the houses surrounding the school, I do understand that parents are doing this in order to drop the Grade 1 learners in the mornings but please try as far as possible to park in the road. Thank you for your understanding. Your co-operation would be appreciated.
