Parents must encourage their children to have a positive attitude towards the school and their educators.  Many parents make great personal sacrifices for their children to attend a school such as ours.  Do not allow your children to take your sacrifices for granted.  Make them understand that 80% of the school-going population does not have access to a school such as ours and that you expect them to make the most of every learning opportunity that’s presented to them.  Insist that they take their schooling seriously.


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.


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).


The winter uniform is as follows:


Regulation grey shorts OR grey longs, tracksuit jacket, grey socks, plus plain navy blue tie is to be worn at all times with long sleeve blue shirt.  NO track suit pants may be worn over the school uniform.


Plain blue long sleeve shirt and navy blue tie, regulation girl’s grey longs (NO POCKETS) both styles available from our suppliers are acceptable OR grey tunic, plain navy jersey (optional), tracksuit jacket.



Just a reminder to parents that the date for optional uniform has been amended due to the sudden change in weather patterns.

Winter uniform becomes optional on Monday 29 April till 13 May when every learner should be in FULL WINTER UNIFORM.


Computer related expenses R4 000, Foundation Phase stock and stationery R3 488, printing R1 874, sports R3 694, hardware/maintenance/plumbing R950, transport R679, trips and shows R1 490.


As from Friday 19 April the school will close 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.


Please note that there will be a cricket match tomorrow, Saturday 20th April for the U10/U11 team at 9:00 in Randfontein, Cnr. Noordweg & Crane Streets or contact Marilisle on 082 789 0504 for more information.
