Often learners are quick to blame others for poor behaviour, incomplete work, poor academic results, etc. In order not to admit or accept responsibility, they lie and blame

the educators, peers and even their parents. Parents must guard against accepting stories at face value and must ensure that their children learn the hard lesson of accepting responsibility and the accompanying repercussions for delivering less than the best.


We are desperately trying to encourage and improve the reading in the school. I would appreciate it if parents could encourage their children to please carry an appropriate reading book in their bags at all times. There are sometimes spare moments when learners can use the opportunity to read. Thank you for your co-operation.
