Enthusiasm:  Enthusiasm is a little thing that makes a big difference Anon


The above quote applies. It is self evident that enthusiasm creates success. To tackle the day, one’s work and one’s relationships with enthusiasm brings positivity and joy into one’s life.   Try to motivate your children to be enthusiastic – this will result in more successful learners.

A very serious request is made to parents NOT to encourage friends, relative, etc who live outside our immediate area to apply for space at our school. Our school is always over-subscribed and we must all co-operate to keep learner numbers in check, in order to control the Learner : Teacher ratio at the school. For Grade 1 learners, preference will be given to in-area learners who turn 7 during the course of 2016. Addresses and place of work will be verified.
