Senior Prep Notices 5 February 2016

Grade 7 Care Bears

Senior Prep Class Party: Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow Saturday, 6 February 2016 at 5pm.

Valentines Social: The Grade 6 and 7 learners are invited to the upcoming social. The cost of the ticket is R140 and includes a burger and cold drink. There is an option of chicken, beef or vegetable burger and the food will be Halaal. Please put the required amount in an envelope with your name and class marked carefully and hand to the class teacher.

Timetable: Having run the timetable issued at the beginning of the year, we have found a number of issues with the balance of subjects, especially in the Senior Prep. The timetable has been revised and will be issued to children on Monday during the first lesson. There is no Physical Education for the Senior Prep children this Monday. The changes have allowed for an English and Maths lesson everyday and to balance the time allocated to the content subjects equally over the red and blue weeks. Please bare with us we effect the change that we are sure will be to the benefit of the children in balancing their workloads.

Dates To Remember: School will be open on the following dates Tuesday, 22 March, Wednesday 23 March and Thursday 24 March 2016.

Lightning Procedure: We would like to remind parents of the procedures we have in place at Grayston in the event that our Lightning Alarm is activated.

  1. As soon as the Siren sounds the fields, pool, tennis courts or any outside activity will cease immediately.
  2. The children, staff, parents and visitors must be evacuated to a safe venue.
  3. The children will be supervised by staff until they are fetched by a parent or until we have received an “all clear” indication.
  4. In the event that it is at the end of the school day,the children will remain in the classroom with the teacher until a parent fetches them or until the next activity begins.

Children will not be allowed to wait at the school gate. They will most often be in the classroom of the coach or teacher, the pavilion, the school hall, or in some instances the closest safe building when the alarm activated.

Please ensure that you also take suitable precautions when fetching your child and on the way to and from your car.

School Photos: Please diarise Thursday, 11 February 2016 and Friday, 12 February 2016 as individual school photographs will be taken.
