Dear Parents & Guardians & Friends

In order to improve our communication with the parents and guardians of all our learners, we have started using an SMS service (SMSWeb).  If you have received SMSes from school recently, it means that the cell phone number that you have provided to the school is correct and working.  If you have not received any SMS, it means that you have probably supplied us with an incorrect number, or the number you gave when you registered your child is no longer in operation.

Since we shall be using this SMS service extensively in future

Reading Volunteers Needed in 2014

We are appealing to community members to come and offer their assistance with our new Reading Literacy Programme.  Each adult will be responsible to assist a small group of Grade 1 or 2 learners to read.  Each group will consist of about 4 learners.

Adults who have a few hours free during the week, are welcome to join us in improving the basic reading skills of our learners - who are mostly from the black townships.

If you would like to have more details regarding the programme and the requirements, please contact the principal or secretary (see CONTACT DETAILS).
