An order form has been stapled in your child’s homework book. Please complete and place payment in an envelope clearly marked : SPEECH & DRAMA TICKETS, along with your child’s name. Please return to the school by 22nd September.

COSTUMES

Thank you for sending your child’s costume to school last Friday. If you weren’t able to do so, please let us have the costume this week.

READMISSION FORMS

At this time of year, I receive many enquiries from parents looking for spaces for their children in the new year. In order to ascertain the number of available spaces in each grade in 2018, current parents should submit the attached readmission form by the end of term, 29th September. A hard copy of this form has been attached to your child’s homework book for your convenience.
We are currently updating our textbook and stationery lists. These will be avaialble to parents shortly.

PARENT COMMITTEE MEETING

The Parent Committee will meet at 18h00 this evening at van der Spuy house.

APARTHEID EXPERIENCE EVENING

As part of their History study programme, Grade 9 pupils will attend an Apartheid Experience evening tonight at 18h00 at Utrecht House.
ASSESSMENT PRESENTATIONS
