back to schoolDEAR PARENTS

What an amazing first week we have had. Tuesday the learners spent the day getting to know their teachers. Wednesday and Thursday Nondo and Ryan organised a boot camp orientation which helped the learners to cooperate with each other and get to know each other. These two days were incredibly successful. Friday the learners began working.

Monday has started in full swing; learners have their time table and have started working. This Friday will be the start of cycle test Friday and Cake Sale.

The Time table will be sent out today. It will also be up on the website by this afternoon.

WhatsApp groups

WhatsAppWe are starting WhatsApp groups for each grade, this is for instant communication, homework details and reminders. We will keep the Message traffic to a bare minimum.

You may also use this platform to communicate with staff in your child’s group. If you do not want to be on the group, simple leave the chat.

We have found this platform very informative and helpful last year for the few parents that were on the chat groups.
