Many thanks to all our staff who make these and all the other results as good as they are.
Current site limited to 350.
We have identified a possible alternative site which we would use for KS1.
Currently busy with Traffic Impact Assessment.
The second site has been carefully chosen to have the same “feel”
What’s our approach?
Sport for enjoyment and as a lifestyle activity
Competitive, but not win at any cost.
Team sports where we can sustain a team.
Sports have been chosen based on student selection.
New legislation has necessitated the creation of a revised contract between the school and parents.
All new parents will automatically use this. Existing parents need to read it through carefully.
We are mindful of the perception of pushing this down parents’ throats; please have a look at the web page and give us feedback.
“Getting off the grid”
Current electricity consumption around R13000 per month (350 KW hours per month)
Using L.E.D. lights, solar panels and battery power we can eliminate 98% of dependency on Eskom.
Costs covered in 5 years.
Paperless reports by December.
We will send parents a code which enable them to download a pdf report from the cloud.
