Dear Parents

We are pleased to officially confirm that Dr Galbraith has made a decision to withdraw his early retirement and continue as our Headmaster until the end of 2016.  This is a very positive development for our school and we will certainly make the most of his skills during the next two and half years.  SGB

After numerous complaints received from parents, we arranged a meeting with Shakatak and discussed the supply of stock issues.  This was a very positive meeting and we would like to request that in future, any stock issue complaints be directed to the front office or directly emailed to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Three weeks until the Lilyfontein Adventure Race. Have you entered and are you ready? Any learners looking for team mates can add their names to the list at the Primary School bathrooms so that people looking for team mates can find them there.  Any learners/parents requiring help with ROAG registration can go to Caroline Kruger in the Teachers’ Resource centre at break time.

If you have entered already, don’t forget to listen to the interview on Wild Coast 98.6FM at 15:30 today to see if you are a winner of an upgrade from camping to a chalet.

The role of the team manager has been added to the website – check it out under useful documents on the Adventure Race page of the website www.lilyfontein.co.za

We have additional sponsorship opportunities for those companies/families wishing to support the race: you can now rename and brand one of the five challenges along the route. If you are interested, please call Caroline on 084 460 6454.

Any parents willing to put a Lilyfontein poster in their car window to help promote the event, please collect one from Reception.

Please ask your child for the AWSUM newspaper. This monthly paper contains information on Lilyfontein activities. This is a great FREE marketing tool for the School but is only possible because of advertisers. If you, the parents, are not seeing the advertising, the advertisers will no longer support the paper and we will lose this marketing opportunity. Please send any feedback on the Lilyfontein page to Caroline on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
