Parents are the PRIMARY figures of authority in the young child’s environment.  Should the parent allow the child to be disrespectful, the child then believes that he may show disrespect to their figures of authority e.g. relations, teachers, policeman, etc.  This is a recipe for disaster and the child will suffer the unpleasant consequences thereof.  Please NO NOT allow your child to treat you or other adults and children with disrespect. I am determined to eradicate the disrespect and bullying at Rand Park Primary.


A reminder to parents that Rand Park Primary has  a ZERO TOLERANCE approach to any form of bullying, emotional and physical.  We endeavour to practice UBUNTU on a daily basis.  I do however, need to inform parents that if bullying is reported to me in any form, I shall phone you straight away to fetch and take the learner home for the rest of the day.  Please address this serious matter with your child as we are desperately trying to eradicate bullying at Rand Park Primary School.  Thank you for your co-operation.
