Education is the best provision for old age – Will Durant
Perhaps the most valuable result of all education and educating children is the ability to make yourself do the things you have to do, when it ought to be done whether you like it or not, it is the first lesson that ought to be learned and however early a man’s training begins it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.
CLEANERS’ CHRISTMAS HAMPER
It is a tradition at our school that parents contribute towards a Christmas hamper for our general assistants as a way of conveying to them our sincere thanks for the wonderful work they do during the year, cleaning the classrooms and looking after the grounds. It will be greatly appreciated if each learner could bring to school one or more non-perishable items as a contribution.
A sincere thanks to all parents who attended the AGM (please see letter regarding school fees).
