Dear parents / guardians

INFORMATION LETTER 11/2020

Welcome back to all the learners and educators. We hope you’ve enjoyed your well-deserved break and that you are ready for this new term.

School Attendance

All learners that didn’t return to school yet, has to return by Monday 24 August. If you have already registered your child for home-schooling with the GDE (Gauteng Department of Education) the school has to be informed as soon as possible. The grades will still alternate on different days, but all the arrangements made with the school for home-schooling will no longer be applicable as learners will miss out on important assessments.

School Work on WhatsApp Groups

Please note that Grade 4 to 7 will no longer be accommodated with work on the groups. Grade 1 to 3 will still add the work on their groups for the alternative days as they are still little. If your child was absent, he/she will be given the work that was done.

School Hours

We request that all parents adhere to the following school hours. If a learner arrives at school later than 07:45, he/she will not be accommodated and they will lose a day’s work. School hours are as follow:

Child Not Returned to School during July
If your child has not returned to school yet, please take note of the following:
All parents HAVE TO inform the school of why your child has not returned to school yet! A meeting has to be arranged with Miss J. Kruger with this regard. If you as parent does not inform the school, we will not know where your child is or whether he/she will be returning to Vaal Triangle Primary in the year 2020 and this might lead to a result of us not adding your child to the re-registration list. Educators also continue with academic work; therefore, your child is missing out on a lot!! Please call the school on 010 035 0887 or 016 931 2200 to arrange an appointment. Thank you to all of the parents that already made arrangements.

TOILETRIES FOR TERM 1
We kindly request all parents from grades 1-3 to send the following toiletries for Term 1.

  • 1 x box of tissues
  • 1 x roll of toilet paper
  • 1 x bar of soap
  • 1 x packet of wet wipes

We are asking the grade 1-3 parents to send this to school due to the little ones using much more tissues and toilet paper than the bigger learners.

Thank you in advance for supporting us with regards to this, it is much appreciated.

UNIFORM
Our school uniform is only available at MG Schoolwear in Vanderbijlpark. Unfortunately, there are uniform stores that committed plagiarism with our uniform. We urge parents to please not purchase the uniform at any other store except MG Schoolwear as they have the only right to sell our uniform.
