I trust that all enjoyed Heritage Day yesterday and ready for the last week of term.
I have to start off with a “Good news and bad news” scenario:
The bad news is that our T-shirt supplier let us down and so we have had to cancel our order there, but the good news is that we will still be able to supply a memento of the Speech & Drama Evening, in the form of a mug and not a T-shirt. Parents who have ordered and paid for T-shirts will be receiving their mugs on Thursday, along with their change. Mugs cost R70 each, so if you would like to order a mug, please place R70 per mug in an envelope marked with your child’s name and “MUGS”. These orders must be in tomorrow (Wednesday).
A dress rehearsal will be held at the church tomorrow. Should your child’s costume not be at school, please ensure that it comes with him/her tomorrow morning.
LIFTS TO THE CHURCH
Grateful thanks to parent who are helping with lifts. We need you again tomorrow and Thursday, leaving school at 08h30 and returning at 12h00 today and tomorrow and at 11h30 on Thursday.
Today (Tuesday) and tomorrow (Wednesday) school closes at 13h15.
Thursday school closes at 11h30. Pupils may be collected from the church or from campus, but if you’re collecting from the church, please write a note to this effect in your child’s homework book.
It is imperative that all our pupils attend school this week to participate in our final practices for the Speech & Drama Evening.
SPEECH & DRAMA EVENING, Thursday 28th September, 19h00, St Mark’s Church, Edgemead
Pupils need to be back at the church at 18h00.
Parents may be seated from 18h30.
Parents who are supplying eats may drop them in the church kitchen between 18h00 and 18h45.
There may still be tickets available at the door, but it would be preferable if you could let us have your ticket order tomorrow so that we can ensure that there will be adequate seating for all.
Should you be planning to bring along a small child, under the age of five, please note that a cry room is available to accommodate younger children.
School closes officially on Friday 29th September at 10h30. However, since pupils will be attending a school function on Thursday evening, they do not need to attend school in Friday. Teachers will be present and aftercare will run in case there are parents who would like to send their children to school.
Reports will be sent out electronically on Friday.
The third term roster is attached.
School re-opens on Monday 9th October.

See you all on Thursday evening
