As 2016 draws to a close I would like to congratulate all our pupils on a most successful year. They have all enjoyed a great year and can be proud of all they have achieved.
Sincere thanks to the Governing Body, Parents Association, class representatives and parents for their fantastic support this year.
We bid farewell to Mrs Mariana van Kradenburg on a full time basis. She has transformed the Afrikaans department in the school over the past two and a half years and the fact that our pupils are succeeding at their high schools in this language is a testimony to her efforts. However, I am delighted that she will continue to teach for three days a week next year.
I thank each and every teacher for their outstanding service, commitment and dedication this past year. May you all have a wonderful and well deserved holiday. We bid farewell to our nine Grade 7 pupils and we wish them well for the future.
