Senior Prep Notices 14 October 2016

dsc_0001Bring Your Own Device Information: Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend the presentations regarding the BYOD programme for the Grade 5s of 2017. Some parents were unable to make it to either of the talks and to ensure you don’t miss out on the important information and resources shared last week we have created a shared folder with a PDF of the presentation and some “How-to” videos to help you get started. The presentation itself also includes the minimum iPad specifications required if purchasing a device. You can access the folder by following this link BYOD RESOURCES. Should you have any questions related to the BYOD programme please either leave a post-it on the Padlet Board or email Mike Atkinson ( 

Movie Night & Camp Out: The day will consist of the traditional camp out on the top field and a big screen movie. The movie for the evening is “Finding Dory”. We request that parents bring a picnic type meal and enjoy the evening watching the movie on the field with their family and friends, and then a night of camping should they wish to. Camping is entirely voluntary.

The cost for the movie night and camp out is R30 per person. Tickets will be on sale from 16:00 tomorrow from the top gate.

Please note that no braais or gas fires will be allowed. Boerewors rolls, popcorn and soft drinks will be on sale as part of the Grade 7 fundraising effort.

Parking for those who are camping will be available on the bottom fields from 14:30 on the day. Campers are welcome to unpack theirs vehicles on the top field before moving to the designated parking area on the bottom field. No vehicles will be allowed on the top field after 15:30. We look forward to enjoying the afternoon and evening together.

International Benchmark Tests 2016: The Grade 4 and 7 pupils will be writing the International Benchmark Tests (IBTs) in English and Maths on the 26th and 27th October respectively. These tests focus on skills rather than content and therefore children do not need to study for the tests. Please note the venues that the children need to report to at the start of the school day. Wednesday 26th October: Gr 4 to register class and Gr 7 to register class. Thursday 27th October: Gr 4 to register class and Gr 7 to register class

Exeat Weekend: School will close at 12:00 noon on Thursday, 20 October for the Exeat Weekend and will re-open at 07:30 on Tuesday, 25 October. We hope that you will be able to enjoy a restful break with your children.

Lost Property: For your convenience we have opened a dedicated lost property room in the admin block. This will cater for Junior Prep & Senior Prep lost property. Pre Prep lost property will remain as is currently. Parents and learners may visit the lost property room between 7:00 and 15:00 daily.  You will be assisted by Mimo who will also maintain a list of all marked items. Please feel free to email Mimo if you are looking for a specific item.  Unmarked items will be kept for a period of 7 days. We ask parents to please clearly mark all items with your child name and surname.

Staff News: Mrs Schoeman the music teacher will be on study leave from Monday, 17 October till Friday, 4 November 2016. The substitute music teacher for the 3 weeks will be Mrs Magdalize Carstens. Class work has been given and no home work is required.
