Dear Parents,

Please take note of the following:

National Bandana Day : Monday, 12 October 2015

This Day is run by the Sunflower Fund in aid of cancer patients. This year's bandana can be purchased from any Pick 'n Pay store. You are encouraged to support this worthy cause by purchasing your bandana and bringing it to school on 12 October so that we can show our support by submitting a photograph of our learners to the press.

Code of Conduct : Uniform/Hair
You are reminded that summer uniform is to be worn from the first day of next term with correct track shoe colours! You are requested to ensure that your children come to school on the first day with neat, tidy and appropriately cut hair. Please note that no colour or tints are allowed. Dr Galbraith will personally be following up on this and the parent of any learner in contravention of our Code of Conduct will be called to collect their child to comply with the Code of Conduct.
