The best training any parent can give a child, is to train himselfSophie Tucker


The above quote applies. The child needs to be guided (trained), monitored and corrected by the parent until the required patterns/habits, etc. Become automatic to the child. In the school context, this applies to regular and

on-going completion of homework, studying, obeying of instructions from the educator and absolute compliance with the School Code of Conduct.

the term the school will close at 13:30 on Tuesday the 22nd and 29th September. It would be appreciated if transport arrangements can be made. Thanking you in advance.
