SCHOOLING IS SERIOUS
The above quote applies. Learners need to understand that educational success depends on the application of the principle of consistency; learners must work each day at their tasks. They must have a methodical step by step programmed approach to their work. This approach must become a habit, thereby ensuring positive outcomes for the learner.
May the Lord bless you all on this auspicious weekend of Easter and may it be a new beginning of greater prosperity, success and happiness. Whishing all our parents a Happy Easter. Enjoy the weekend!

CLOSING TIMES FOR TERM 2
PLEASE NOTE: Due to there being no Group Tests in Term 2, the school will finish at 13:30 on Tuesdays. Please arrange transport in order for learners to get home and study for exams.
SECURITY – BOTTOM GATE
The bottom gate seems to be a vulnerable area regarding safety and security. Lots of learners wait there to be picked up by parents, etc. It is not safe down there as there are neither teachers nor adults in the vicinity. Therefore, this gate will be closed at 14:15 and learners will then have to be picked up at the top gate where it is safer.
