General Notices

  • The SGB elections are nearly upon us and I appeal to each family to take the time to vote on 19 March at 17:30, so that we have a quorum. 

    We hope to recruit people who are not simply available, but also passionate and committed.  The SGB are people who can speak with insight about the community; who have the necessary knowledge, experience and understanding of local conditions and expectations; and who are well-versed on the range of matters which are likely to come before them for consideration and decisions. There also needs to be an effective balance in terms of expertise, diversity and stakeholder representation on the SGB.  We need people with financial, legal, HR, IT and construction skills so that our team is equipped to advise on infrastructure and resource management. 

  • Tuckshop Pre-Order Form for Term 2: Please download and return to school by 16 March.
  • Fundraising: Thank you to each and every one who has contributed to the Water Purification System.  Please could you forward the Back a Buddy link to friends and family that live overseas as their little bit translates into a lot for us.

Parents who Pray
A group of Christian parents meet on a Friday at 7.50am – 8.30am to pray for the school. We would love parents with daughters in all grades to join us – but especially Grade 8 parents to start to pray with us.  It’s a wonderful journey!  For more information please whatsapp 083 411 0520.  Thank you.
