EDUCATION IS SERIOUS
The above quote illustrates the point that, when necessary, parents need to firmly discipline their children.
COMPULSORY SCHOOL FEES – 2013
The school fee tariff is R5 900 per learner per year, and may be paid over 10 months. Payment options are as follows:
Full payment at the beginning of the year; or Three pro-rata payments payable at the end of Term 1 2 and 3; or ten monthly instalments of R590 beginning January with the final (10th) instalment due end of October.
ALL PARENTS ARE EXPECTED TO HAVE PAID IN FULL BY THE END OF OCTOBER. AN URGENT APPEAL IS MADE TO ALL PARENTS WHO ARE IN ARREARS TO PAY THE FEES BY THIS TIME. ACCOUNTS IN ARREARS WILL BE HANDED OVER TO OUR DEBT-COLLECTION AGENCY FROM THE BEGINNING OF NOVEMBER.
OLD DEBTS HAVE ALREADY BEEN HANDED OVER.
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).
MY SCHOOL CARD
Please remember to support our business partners on a regular basis. We have raised R34 348.39 to date. Thank you to all participating parents.
As the school is 40 YEARS old this year I would like to ask parents to support any initiative that we might have in order to celebrate this auspicious occasion.
SCHOOL OPENING TERM 4
School will re-open for Term 4 on Tuesday 1 October.
CLOSING TIME FOR FRIDAYS – TERM 4
As from FRIDAY 4 OCTOBER the school will close every Friday at 13:30 for the Senior Phase (Grade 4 – 7). This is due to the fact that we are not writing Cycle Tests this term. The Foundation Phase will close at 13:00 as usual. Please note that detention for Senior Phase will therefore start at 13:30 and finish at 15:00.
Thank you to all parents and learners who supported the Talent Evening. I am extremely proud of our learners who participated and the lovely talent that we have at Rand Park Primary. Thanks to all stakeholders who helped to make this evening such a huge success.
