Many small issues between children are often escalated by other children getting involved.  Children who are on the periphery of the issue, the above quote applies.  Please encourage your children not to become involved in issues that do not directly involve them.

A big thank you to all those parents and learners who contributed towards our Door of Hope Charity Drive, your generosity was much appreciated.  Thanks to you we were able to deliver a bakkie full of donations.


Application forms for 2014 will be available from Tuesday 9 April 2013 at the office and parents may return completed forms from Wednesday 17 April 2013.  A very serious request is made to all parents not to encourage friends/relatives, etc. who live outside our immediate area to apply for space at our school.  Our school is always over-subscribed and  we must all co-operate to keep learner numbers

in check, in order to control the Learner: Teacher ratio at the school.  For Grade 1 learners, preference will be given to in-area learners who turn 7 during the course of 2014Personal and professional experience suggests that the enrolment of the younger learners can be problematic for them.  My honest opinion is for you to keep them out of formal education for the additional year.  Please let us all do whatever we can to ensure that we do not flood the school next year.  An increase in the Learner: Teacher ratio is certainly not in the best educational interest of your children.


Parents must ensure that their children abide by the rules, regulations and procedure set forth by the school.


Thanks to all parents who attended the parents evening on Tuesday night.


School will open for Term 2 on Tuesday 9 April


Rand Park Primary School will be holding a rugby clinic at the school on Saturday 20 April for all age groups.  All welcome!
