Effort/Perseverance: Have you ever watched a stonecutter at work? He will hammer away at a rock for perhaps 100 times without a crack showing in it. Then, on the 101st blow, it will split in half. It’s not the last blow that split the rock but the 100 blows that went before itAnon


The above quote illustrates the point that success is the result of sustained effort. This is particularly true of school work. Learners must understand that on-going effort will result in success. There are no short cuts. Parents must endeavour to get this message across to their children.


Please note that the Bargain Bin will be open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:15 – 8:00 and a Wednesday afternoon from 13:00 – 14:00.

An urgent appeal is made to parents to refrain from stopping in the middle of the road during peak hours in order to drop/fetch their children at the main gate. This practise causes serious traffic congestion. Please use the allocated parking spaces. DO NOT PARK IN FRONT OF THE HOUSES’ DRIVEWAYS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE ROAD. We have had various complaints from residents. If this continues we will be forced to notify Metro in order to take action.
