The child must make the required effort to achieve his/her educational goals.  This entails effort, diligence and application by the child.  Some of our learners are already falling behind in 2014 regarding these aspects.


We are in the third week of school and some learners have already brought to my office two detention slips (10 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.
