Important dates


On Friday 20 September, we will celebrate the end of a busy and successful term. In order to end the term in a relaxed fashion, the Grade 4 ‒ 7 learners will watch movies as an extension to the curriculum. Thereafter, they will participate in activities aimed at promoting life skills.

Learners will also have the opportunity to support their sports teams in celebration of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Learners are encouraged not to buy shirts but to wear what they already have. Alternatively, they can wear a t-shirt in the colour of their favourite sports team.
