Under normal circumstances, at the end of the second term, we would have reflected upon a hectic winter sport programme, the revue or production taking shape and the June exams. However, under the Covid-19 restrictions, only the examinations were able to take place. These exams were challenging with a number of learners having to isolate at home and thus write online. A special word of thanks to all the teachers and parents who made this possible. In the light of the recent Covid numbers and newest lockdown regulations, we are glad that we had already suspended all contact classes on 10 June. For the last three weeks, the matrics have had their classes online, while the grade 8 to 11s wrote their exams. We have also decided to postpone the grade 12 Winter School, which was scheduled for next week. As per our original calendar, we will reopen on Tuesday, 27 July. I would like to wish every learner a well-deserved rest – a rest without any academic or Covid stress. To every parent who supported your child through thick and thin during this term, a special salute. A word of sincere gratitude to all the “half-full glass” parents out there, without you we would not have made it through this term. The final, but biggest, shout-out goes to our teachers who really had to walk the extra mile. Reflect upon your present blessings and enjoy the holidays, and the marking of the exam scripts. Be positive about life and test negative! Stay safe!
The 2020 matric certificates and year books may be collected from the school office, on 30 June and 1 July, 08:00 to 13:30. Covid regulations apply.
Please note that the school will reopen after the school holidays on 27 July.
