Principal's Desk - April/May 2017 Print E-mail
We are well into Term 2 with the midyear exams approaching fast. The academic programme is in full swing and the children should have started their study programmes by now. Please be advised that reports will be issued to the grade 12’s at the end of the term and to Grades 8-11 at the end of the first week in term 3. You will be reminded of this by sms closer to the time. If your child is going to be absent for an exam a doctors certificate is required.

The term has been busy with a full sports programme. Two derby days against Fairmont High and Westerford High produced some excellent results and performances by individuals and teams. Well done to all the staff and learners who were involved in these events.

The music department has also been busy with the Grade 8’s being involved in two internal performances and the senior big band performing at the Baxter later this week.

The school has supported our community in several ways this term. Slipper Day and Blind Buddy day were two initiatives that were well supported by the children and raised much needed funding for CHOC and LOFOB.

Fundraising has been going ahead for the Senior Sports Tour to Westering High in PE later this term and excitement is mounting amongst the children.

The School Play cast was announced and rehearsals have commenced. The staff and actors are very excited about the play and I’d like you to support the cast next term when the play is presented.

The school has also been active with the Battle of the Books, the Argus Quiz, various subject Olympiads, visits to Robben Island, market days, Africa Day and other cultural programmes.

The planning for our new classrooms is well underway and the admission process for 2018 has been completed with letters having been sent to all the applicants.

It has been wonderful to receive the support from the parent body as a result of our request for help in the repairs and maintenance of the school. We had an excellent response and we are engaging with those parents who will be providing services accordingly. Painting, building, upholstery, security and many other services have already been provided at reduced costs. Thank you very much.  Stephen Price
