We have reached the end of a monumental term. As we reflect back on the term, we acknowledge many high moments and we applaud and thank our learners as well as you, our parents, for the hard work, support and dedication this term. My thanks also go to my staff who have remained committed, dedicated and positive throughout this term. I wish each of our families and teachers an enjoyable and restful time during this holiday. Please look after yourselves and stay safe.

There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither. – Alam Cohen.

Attention all athletes and potential athletes!

Due to Level 3 Covid regulations, the Athletics Club will not be able to continue with preparations during the July holidays for the third term club athletic season. The club will start with preparation when the school commences for the third term. According to the last communication from ASA (Athletics South Africa), meetings have been scheduled for September and October. We still have a whole month to prepare for these meetings.

It is important to register all athletes who would like to compete in these meetings in the third term before July as AGN license numbers, as well as shirts, have to be ordered.

Coaching fees will only be payable from August onwards.

Registration can now be done online on the website.

For more information, visit the website or contact Janettie Kirkpatrick at or 082 457 7094
