 To our outgoing RCL Executives may I take this opportunity to thank you for a job well done, you have been outstanding ambassadors for Parkrand Primary School.


Please take note that the examination period will start on the 11th November for Grade seven learners and on the 15th November for Grade 4, 5 and 6  learners.  A letter regarding the early release of learners was addressed to parents from Mr Coleman on the 1st November 2016.   Parents were requested to complete a reply slip and return to your child’s homeroom teacher.  No release of a child will take place if a return slip has not been received. If learners are walking home parents are to address a letter to the homeroom teacher which will be placed on file.   Parents please ensure the safety of your children when they are released early.

May I also extend my good wishes to all learners for the upcoming examinations.



Reports will be handed to learners between 08h00 and 09h00.   School will close on the 7th December 2016 at 09h00.


Lastly, I would like to thank parents for their continued support throughout the term.



Kind Regards
