Dear Parents/Guardians

 

I hope this letter finds all our families in good health and blessings as we approach the cold weather.

I wish to draw your attention to the following issues:

 

STAFFING ISSUES

Mrs Hadland is on accouchement leave until September and Mr Ford has been appointed in this post until she returns.  Mrs M Stewart has had to undergo surgery and Mrs Davies will be standing in for her until her return.  Mrs T Louw has tendered her resignation and Miss Naidoo will be taking her place.

I am looking for a Natural Science Educator for Grade Four.  Kindly email curriculum vitae to headmaster@parkrand.co.za

 

GRADE R AND GRADE ONE REGISTRATIONS 2018

Applications are now open.   Grade One online registrations will close on the 12th June 2017.

 

INTRODUCTION OF AFRICAN LANGUAGE

The Gauteng Department of Education will be introducing an African language in Grade One this year.   A survey form will be sent to parents in this regard to gauge what the predominant language is.

 

PTA MEETING
A PTA meeting was held on the 3rd May 2017 where a request was made that learners wear their Phys  Ed uniform on the day they have Phys Ed.  This request was declined.  The School Governing Body decided that learners must come to school dressed in their full school uniform and change at school.

 

MONEY

Please do not send large amounts of money to school with your child.   Money is getting lost or stolen.  Please make an electronic payment or come to the cashier and pay in the office.

 

FUN DAY- 2ND SEPTEMBER 2017

Please support the school and ask friends or colleagues to sponsor your child. This will be our main fundraiser for the year.

TOURS

No tours will take place this year due to the current financial climate.  Once this improves the School Governing Body will make a decision on whether or not to reinstate the tours.

 

BARNYARD – 22 JUNE 2017

This fundraiser will be taking place on the 22nd June 2017.   The cut-off date for bookings will be on the 31st May 2017.  Please support the school with this fundraiser.

 

REACH FOR A DREAM – 12th MAY 2017

This is not a school fundraiser but learners can purchase bands from Pick and Pay or Wimpy to support this initiative.  On the 12th May 2017  learners with bands may then wear their slippers to school.

 

GRANDPARENTS’ DAY

Grandparents’ day was held on the 5th May 2017 and was a tremendous success.   Thank you to all our Grade R parents who contributed in making this day special for all our grandparents.  Mrs Paterson and Mrs Hill we salute you for your sterling effort, thank you.

Kindly be reminded that learners are to be in their winter uniform by the 16th May 2017.     Only navy blue beanies may be worn to school.
