General Notices

Advance Notice: On Friday 11 May, we will be hosting an U10 Hockey Festival on our Astroturf on behalf of Rustenburg Junior. This will mean that there will be a large number of visiting Junior Schools and their supporters on Campus from around 13:30, which will obviously have a negative impact on the afternoon pickup traffic. Please refer to our previous letter regarding traffic on campus for some suggestions as to possible alternative arrangements for that afternoon.


We welcomed Professor Jonathan Janseon, former Vice-Chancellor at the University of the Free State, author and renowned educational expert to lead us into "Dialogue Day" on 25 April at Rustenburg.
