“May the glory of Christmas fill your heart, the spirit of Christmas enfold you in its peace and the joy of Christmas be with you all through the Year. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”Anon


Yet another year has flown by. I continue to be extremely proud to be a part of our fine school, its willing learners, dedicated educators, hardworking secretaries and cleaning staff, co-operative parents and supportive, professional Governing Body. I wish to take this opportunity to thank all role-players most sincerely for their varied and valued input during the course of this year. The success of the school and its learners in 2014 can only be certain if all continue in this vein next year. Sincerest best wishes are extended to all learners and their parents who leave Rand Park Primary at the end of this year. To those travelling away on holiday – enjoy your vacation. To those returning next year, have a wonderful rest and return refreshed and full of vigour in 2015. Best wishes to all for a merry, blessed and peaceful festive season.


A sincere word of thanks from our groundstaff for the generous donations made towards their Christmas hampers. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
