If you make your educational laws strict, then your criminal ones can be gentle, but if you leave youth its liberty; you will have to dig dungeons for ages.Michael Eyguen Montaigue


The above quote illustrates the point that undisciplined children become undisciplined adults and this can have extremely serious consequences for society. The sooner learners learn to OBEY PARENTAL AND SCHOOL RULES, the more law abiding they will be as adults.

Sincere thanks to JRA for doing the parking bays for our school. I would however request that parents refrain from parking on the right hand side of the road in order to drop or collect children. This action jeopardises the safety of the learners because they have to run backwards and forwards across the road. Your co-operation is greatly appreciated.


Rough play/games are not permitted on the fields; the educator on playground duty will use his/her discretion in this regard.

Congratulations and good luck to Kyle Viede who has been selected to represent Joburg Northern Districts at Vereeniging.


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 another property is a serious offence.

I would really appreciate it if you could assist us in this serious matter. Thank you!
