Yet another year has flown by. I continue to be extremely proud to be a part of our fine school, its willing learners, dedicated educators, hardworking secretaries and cleaning staff, co-operative parents and supportive, professional Governing Body. I wish to take this opportunity to thank all role-players most sincerely for their varied and valued input during the course of this year.  The success of the school and its learners in 2013 can only be certain if all continue in this vein next year.  Sincerest best wishes are extended to all learners and their parents who leave Rand Park Primary at the end of this year.  To those travelling away on holiday – enjoy your vacation.  To those returning next year, have a wonderful rest and return refreshed and full of vigour in 2014.  Best wishes to all for a merry, blessed and peaceful festive season.


Will not be issued to learners next year if they did not return all their books this year.  Missing/lost textbooks require a payment of R150 per book, to the school.


The school fee tariff for next year, 2014, will be R6 500 per learner per year and may be paid over 10 months.


Would those of you wishing to make a cash sponsorship donation (to assist indigent parents/learners to pay a portion of the 2013 school fees), please ensure that you indicate clearly on the cheque, deposit slip, Internet banking or envelope, that the amount is for SPONSORSHIP (SCHOOL FEES).


Sincere thanks to all parents who contributed in such a meaningful way.  The general assistants are extremely grateful.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated.


Please remember to support our business partners on a regular basis.  We have raised R46 767.36 to date. Thank you to all participating parents.
