Parents/ Guardians, learners and friends…

What a beautiful spring morning today!  I hope that you find time in-between all the business to enjoy it.
Things seem to be falling in place at the school and most of the glitches have been sorted out. We are getting used to the new way of doing. Last week’s newsletter covered quite a few areas of concern and we are pleased to notice a good response to our requests. There are, however, still some parents not adhering to protocol and we are concerned for the safety of our learners and staff that are compromised in the process.
The ONE thing that this VIRUS has taught us that everything is not about the individual, but about the group – in this case – Rondebosch East Primary!
  • There are still parents who are late to bring their children to school. We can understand that the traffic can cause problems per occasion, but not regularly! Also, please be patient when our processes of letting your child into the school in such a situation, do not please you. Again, we are looking at a much bigger picture here.
  • There are still parents who are not fetching their children on time! I want to stress that we do not have the staff or venue to keep these children safe until such time that they are fetched. Parents who make use of private transport must please check with the service providers that they are adhering to the indicated times.
  • We have allowed our learners to wear civvies until we advise you differently. The rules for civvies are still the same as before! E.g.
  • No ripped jeans
  • Long hair tied out of the face
  • No jewelry
  • No nail varnish
  • Etc.
  • Please check that your child does not bring any toys to school like soccer balls, etc. At this stage they may unfortunately not play with it.
Our Assessment Planner will be made available during the course of this week. We are in the last stages of finalizing it. Please plan your transport according to the planner. We do not have much of a choice with the way in which it is planned. We get our instructions from the Education Department.
On a much lighter note: Twice during this past week REPS learners and staff appeared in the media.
  1. On Tuesday 1 September a group of our learners under the watchful eye of Mrs L Abels appeared on television in the show Melody. A clip of part of the show is attached.

  1. Last week a learner from Gr 6AC, Moeghammad Ameen Armino, was on radio, and he was having the “fight of his life”. He participated in the Grow Smart Competition on Heart FM. He had to answer questions on Mathematics and English. He participated from Monday to Friday and in the process won R500 worth data as well as a tablet. He has now proceeded to the Top 20. We will keep you informed when this part of the competition will take place in a few weeks’ time in order for all of us to support him.
 Please remember not to become complacent now that the infection numbers are dropping.

Stay safe.
REPS greetings
