The above quote illustrates the point that a major factor in determining success is a positive attitude.  This is particularly true of school work.  Learners must understand that the correct attitude will result in success.  There is no benefit in moaning, complaining and being negative about school, schoolwork, educators, etc.  Parents must endeavour to get this message across to their children.


We are in the third week of school and some learners have already brought to my office THREE detention slips (15 misdemeanours).  This is because these learners do not do their work at home, nor do they finish work in class.  They are disruptive in class and do not concentrate.  If you have signed two detention slips already, please have a serious word with your child.  It is unacceptable behaviour.  Thank you for your co-operation.
