(c) It is advisable to send a jersey in your child’s bag every day as there could be a sudden change in weather.

3. ILLNESS * MEDICATION * ACCIDENTS

By accepting enrolment at the school parents automatically indemnify the school against any such liability.
Parents can be assured, however, that every effort will be made and the utmost care taken, to avoid accidents
and prevent children from being hurt at school.

4. SUPPLY OF STATIONERY, EQUIPMENT, ETC. NB (This does not apply to the baby class)

Parents are responsible for supplying the following items:

  • 2 x roll toilet paper
  • 1 x box of tissues
  • 1 x wet wipes (used for hands and face)
  • 1 box thick wax crayons (aged 4 -5 years may use retractable crayons) wood or project glue (Ponal), please do not buy thin liquid glue as the items that the children need to glue don’t always stick with that type of glue.

5. SWEETS/TOYS

(a) Please don’t let your child bring sweets, chips, etc. to school as our children are very young and don’t understand why they can’t have sweets if someone else has them. Please pack in a healthy mid-morning snack e.g. yoghurt, sandwich or fruit.

(b) When it is your child’s birthday you may send along a sweet or cake for the children in his/her class.

(c) Every Friday one child in the class has a turn to be the Baker man. The Baker man will sell biscuits or cookies, which he has brought from home, to the rest of his/her class. Please send R5.00 to school with your child every Friday.

(d) Toys brought to school only create problems and we strongly discourage your child from doing so. We cannot accept responsibility for toys that are lost or broken at school.

6. SCHOOL FEES

(a) Fees are calculated and invoiced per term, but may be paid monthly in advance on the 1st day of each month.The full month’s fees are therefore payable for December and January although the school will be closed for part of the month during our annual vacation period.

(b) Fees are payable strictly in advance before the 2nd of each month.

7. TELEPHONE CALLS TO THE SCHOOL

Please limit your phone calls to the school to emergency calls only. A teacher being away from her class to answer the phone results in unnecessary disruption of the class routine which ultimately affects your child.

8. THEMES – PARENT INVOLVEMENT

Each week we have a different theme or topic of discussion. Please discuss the theme with your child and point out its application in our daily lives or read a story about the theme to your child at bedtime.

9. DISCUSSION OF CHILD’S PROGRESS PROBLEMS

Please feel free to discuss your child’s progress/problems with his class teacher at any time and please advise us of any change in the home so that we can understand any sudden changes in the child’s behaviour pattern. Please make an appointment to see me personally if there is anything you wish to discuss with me which you feel your child’s class teacher is unable to handle.
