It is self evident that enthusiasm creates success. To take the day, ones work, ones relationship with enthusiasm brings positivity and joy into one’s life. Try to motivate your children to be enthusiastic – this will result in happier, more successful learners.
This will take place on Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th September from 18:30 – 20:00. Entrance will be R10 per person due to the fact that we would like to upgrade the music room.

FELLOW LEARNERS’ PROPERTY
This is an ongoing problem at the school and I am appealing to parents to have a word with their children regarding these very serious matters:
- Learners may NOT tamper with, damage or hide away another learner’s property.
- Learner may NOT take or use another learner’s property without permission. Each learner must have their own stationery and equipment.
- Vandalism or meddling with anothers property is a serious offence.
I would really appreciate it if you could assist us in this serious matter. Thank you!
