Cell Phones – Due to a recent issue:

cell phone schoolCell phones are no longer welcome at Capulum College.

If children do bring cell phones, they must have a name on them which cannot be erased.

They bring cell phones AT THEIR OWN RISK ENTIRELY.

No person/persons will be held liable for loss of a cell phone.

We will not be held liable for anything for which the cell phone is used if it is not handed in.

If we find a cell phone with a learner at any stage through the term, the phone will be confiscated for the term.

4 Real Rewards Programme

We would like to introduce our new fundraising partner, the 4real Rewards Programme. A money for jam, community driven concept that is going to assist our school to raise funds and uplift education in South Africa.

Your child will be bringing home a 4real Rewards Master Card application form for each parent to swipe when shopping at any of the 4real partner stores. The list of supporting retail partners will be displayed on the 4real website.

Please complete the registration form on the brochure and return it to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible. You will receive a sms and an email to inform you that your card has been activated and is ready for collection at the school.

4 real rewardsShould you have more than one child at the school, or receive a card from another school, please return these to the school or give them to others who are willing to show their support.

Each parent will carry one card. You are able to add up to 4 beneficiaries on your profile on the 4real website, so that the funds you raise are split between the schools you wish to support. Visit www.4realrewards.com for more information.

Every time you shop at any of the supporting 4real retail partners a rebate given by the retailer will be split 50/50 between our school and yourself. Our school will be paid monthly by 4real and your share is put onto your card, to be redeemed 30 days later. You are able to redeem your credit at any of the participating retails against your purchases.

Please look out for the 4real sign in stores and you will be notified as new supporting retail partners join this growing network.

Thank you for supporting us by remembering to use your 4real card.
