EDUCATION IS SERIOUS
It’s essential that parents pay close attention to the kind of friends their children choose. The above quote illustrates the significant effect that a friend can have on your child, positive or negative. Please discourage friendships that are harmful to your child. The younger the child, the less developed is his/her ability to choose appropriately and parental input and guidance is required.
From Monday 16 September, ALL LEARNERS MUST BE DRESSED IN THE FULL SUMMER UNIFORM.
Boys: Shorts, short sleeve shirt with the Rand Park Primary badge, jersey or bunny jacket optional.
Girls: Summer dress, short white socks, jersey or bunny jacket optional.
Learners not conforming to this will result in a straight detention. Thank you for your co-operation.
