CO-OPERATION

We would like to ask for your co-operation regarding the following issue.  There are far too many unnecessary interruptions during school hours.  Pupils are being called to the office to collect trivial items like lunch, tog bags, projects and books which have been left at home or in the car.  We request that you please make Doctor’s appointments after school hours.   You will be sent away!  If a child is absent for a test or exams, they will get a zero it there is no doctor’s letter.

Dear Parents,

We would like to remind you that the magic words such as “Hello”, “Please”, “You’re welcome”, “I’m sorry”, and “Thank you”, all begin to be learned AT HOME.

It’s also AT HOME that children learn to be honest, to be on time, diligent, show friends their sympathy, as well as show utmost respect for their elders and all teachers.

HOME is aloes where they learn to be clean, not talk with their mouths full, and how/where to properly dispose of garbage.

HOME is also where they learn to be organized, to take good care of their belongings, and that it’s not ok to touch others.

HERE AT SCHOOL, on the other hand, we teach language, mathematics, history, geography, physics, sciences, and physical education.  We only reinforce the education that children receive AT HOME from their parents.

Gloedjie greetings 

J.H.C. van Rensburg
