Please note the following:

  • Learners need only attend the sessions they are writing
  • Learners must be at school 30 minutes prior to the start of the exam, i.e.: 8:30 and 11:30.
  • All learners must have the required stationery (including a calculator if required). All stationery must be in a clear plastic bag. No correction fluid / tippex is allowed. No borrowing of any stationery is allowed.
  • Appropriate school uniform is compulsory. We understand there is a delay in new uniform orders, however, the basic uniform as specified must be worn.

Uniform & Textbooks

We apologise that we are experiencing a lengthy delay in receiving the uniform and textbooks. We request your patience and understanding. If you have not paid for textbooks/uniform as yet, please do so.

In the meantime, we request all children adhere to our basic dress code. Bottoms need to be plain in either denim, navy, black, grey, or white. They may wear a plain white or navy T-shirt or golf shirt (no exceptions).

Please check what your child is wearing before sending them to school to avoid any unnecessary consequences. Caps and beanies of any sort may not be worn at school.

Reports

Reports will be handed out on Tuesday, 20 April 2021. The final Term 1 mark will include cycle tests, class tests and the exams. Please let us know if you would like us to forward a copy via email.

Extra Time

If your child is writing Cambridge International exams in the Oct/Nov sitting and they need extra time, we require a motivation from the relevant specialist. This avoids your child being disadvantaged  by the allocated time.

School Fees

We request that all parent details be regularly updated, with email addresses and contact details to ensure that you receive all correspondence. We will provide your child with a hard copy of all correspondence if preferred. Should school fees not be paid, your child may be suspended.

University Registration

Registrations for universities are open from April. Applications are completed online and need to be finalised by the end of April. Should your child be required to write the NBT’s (National Benchmark Tests) they need to book in advance. The NBT assistance website is www.advantagelearn.com.

Should your child require preparation for the NBT’s please contact Ms. Hamlett. The cost for extra tuition is R300 per hour. The NBT maths is different and is taken from the CAPS, IEB and Cambridge syllabus.

Career Guidance

If your child has no specific career goals, it is a suggestion that they make an appointment with a career guidance specialist. A possible option is Prof Zak Nel: 082 680 9235 (Please SMS and he will return your call)

Charities

Claw is our charity this term. There will be a prize for the child who brings in the most donations given on Thursday, 18 March 2021.

Matric Fundraising

There will be a cake and candy sale on Thursday, 18 March 2021 to raise funds for the Matric Farewell.

Kind Regards
Sue Parry
