A spare set of clothing and underwear must be in the child’s bag daily. It is essential that all clothing and other belongings be suitably marked with the name and surname of the child. All uniforms must be in good repair, in a good condition and well cared for.
SNACKS: Please pack a healthy snack including a fruit daily.
No sweets allowed.
CORRESPONDENCES: Each learner must have a message book. This will be the communication between the parents to the school and vice versa. Please check your child’s message book daily for correspondence and sign the message book daily. Your circulars will be issued via this message book. All “Outing” monies to be in a clearly marked “moneybag” or “envelop” and stapled into the message book.
ILLNESS / ABSENTEEISM: If your child is ill and cannot attend school, please inform us early in the day, preferably before 08h30. Learners who are ill are not allowed at school because of the risk of infecting others. A doctor’s certificate must accompany the learner on the day the learner returns to school.
LATE COMING: Learners must be punctual. Continuous latecomers will miss important and valuable information daily. Records are kept daily of all latecomers.
EARLY DEPARTURES: If a learner needs to leave early, the parent must contact the principal telephonically requesting permission and a written notice must be in the message book and signed by the parent. In the case of an emergency, where the learner has to leave the school’s premises immediately, the parent or guardian will sign a register, thus releasing the learner from the school’s custody.
DROPPING AND FETCHING LEARNERS: Please inform the school if there is a change of person who normally collects your child. Please make prior arrangements with the school. We will not release your child to any person we do not know. In order for your child to get the full benefit of his/her education and the necessary quality time at home, all learners must be dropped off and collected on time.
PARENT MEETINGS / WORKSHOPS: This will take place at least once a term. It is imperative that at least one parent attends. On arrival at our parent meetings, an attendance register must be completed and signed.
SCHOOL HOLIDAYS: Holidays will coincide with the government schools. We will occasionally open a day later than the government schools, reason being that teachers need time to prepare the environment for the learners. The entire school is closed on public holidays and a day before and after for the two EIDS, (Eid-ul Fitr and Eid-ul Adha).
DAILY MADRASSAH: Learners will attend Madrassah in their religious attire.The Surat and the Quraan used in the classroom should be placed in a plastic A4 envelope sleeve to protect it form water damage. The Surat/Quraans are obtainable at the school @ a cost.
BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS: In the Montessori environment we celebrate birthdays in a very special way. Parents are allowed to come and join us on that day if they so wish. We would need photographs of your child from birth and each year thereafter. Please ensure that the teacher receives the photographs 3 days prior to the learner’s birthday so that a timeline on cardboard can be prepared. Party packs filled with healthy food will be appreciated e.g. juice, fruit, popcorn, muffins, dried fruit, yoghurt, etc.
FUNDRAISING: Parents are expected to participate in fundraising e.g. Sports Day, Eat and Treats, High Teas, Concert and other fundraising events. These are wonderful social events where we all get to know each other.
OUTINGS: We go on regular outings, at least once a term, depending on our theme. The costs of these outings are separate and depend on our destination.
EXTRA MURAL ACTIVITIES: Any extra murals are optional and at an additional cost to the parents. Information regarding extra mural are issued via the message book. (Action Ball and Karate)
AFTERCARE FACILITIES: We unfortunately do not cater for an aftercare. However, should the need arise and we can make alternative arrangements
