ANNUAL PHOTOGRAPHS

Gordon Harris Photographic Studio will be coming to the school on Thursday the 15th of August to do our annual
photographs.  
Only pre-ordered and paid photographs will be taken.

BIRTHDAYS

If your child is celebrating their birthday, they should only bring simple cup-cakes or small bars of chocolate
to school to share with the class.  Please follow this rule, the children have also been told by their register teacher.

SATURDAY 24TH AUGUST

Saturday 24th August promises to be an exciting day.  It marks the opening of our beautiful new ECD Centre, 
the Ridgeway College Colour Drop and our very own Rainbow Run.
Let’s all add a splash of colour to our busy lives!
Tickets will be available at the office for R100.  Under 5 years of age, only pay R50.
Each participant will receive a goody-bag and the first 200 entries will receive a free T-shirt.
Save the date, everyone!

MEDICATION

When students need to be given medication during the day, please send the medicine in a container together with
a letter giving either the teacher or Mrs. Biggs permission to administer the medicine.  Write clear instructions of 
how the medicine must be given.  Children must under no circumstances take the medicine by themselves.

ENTRANCE & REPORT TO RECEPTION

For the security of our children we kindly request after you press the bell at the gate that you identify yourself and state
reason for entering the school.
During office hours parents must report to reception before going to the classes.  Parents must make an appointment at the 
reception to see the Principal or the teachers for any issues.

APPEAL TO PARENTS

Please do not speed along the gravel road especially when there is a lot of dust which causes poor visibility.  If we all 
take precaution it could prevent a fatal accident from occurring.

 

NOTICE OF WITHDRAWAL

We are busy with the budgets for 2020.  If your child will not be returning next year, please notify us in writing by 
Friday the 16th of August.

JUNIOR PHASE TRIP

The Grade 1 to 3 will be going to Schoemansdal on an ecological safari on the 4th of September.  Letters will be going out
this week.  Please return the indemnity form with the money by Monday the 26th of August.

LOST PROPERTY

Please parents, make sure each and every item of your child has been labeled clearly, including water bottles, lunch boxes
and hats.  Every day unbelievable amounts of clothing are being found around the school with most not being marked.
We are requesting parents to come any week day at 13:40 and look through the lost property to see if there is something
that belongs to their child.
