Embrace the concepts of praise and blame with regard to your child; both are developmental.


Would those of you wishing to make a cash sponsorship donation (to assist indigent parents / learners to pay a portion of the 2012 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).


On Wednesday 14 November we had the Annual General Meeting.  We needed a quorum of 230 parents in order to approve  a number of resolutions including the budget for 2013.  We did not manage to achieve the number required for the quorum with the result that we have to return on 29 November where NO quorum is needed.  Please attend on 29 November at 19:00.  Thank you to those parents who attended on 14 November.

Many thanks to the Grade 7 parents for their generous donations towards the Barn Dance.

We will be meeting in the Hall at 8:30 on Saturday 24 November to start decorating and your help would be much appreciated.


It’s a tradition at our school that parents contribute towards a Christmas Hamper for our cleaning staff, as a way of conveying to them our sincere thanks for the wonderful work they do during the course of the year.  It will be greatly appreciated if each learner could bring to school one or more non perishable items as a contribution.


The school urgently requires the services of a parent to assist us with shelves and some welding for the new Computer Centre.  Please contact Mr Pienaar at the school on (011) 793-7434.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
