Stationery and Textbooks
A selection of stationery is to be purchased by the parents according to a list provided by the teachers.
Writing books, as well as certain supplementary maths and literacy work books, are purchased by the school as they are not always commercially available.
Text books used at school by the girls are loaned to them and must be replaced if they are damaged or lost.
All the girls are placed into houses. These are ATHLONE, BUXTON and CLARENDON.
The recycling depot is open each week day morning for parents to deliver recyclable goods. All recycling needs to be dry and clean.
- Plastic – milk bottles, margarine containers, ice-cream containers, yogurt tubs, juice bottles, water bottles (all sizes)
- ECO – bricks
Parents are requested not to double park or park on the pedestrian crossing in front of the school gates when bringing children to school. Parking in the grounds is for staff cars only and for parents assisting with school duties. Oakhurst Close and Lancaster Road can be used for parents to drop off or pick up pupils, but not for parking.
Children may ride to school on bicycles at their parents’ discretion. All bicycles must have a lock and a duplicate key. It is essential that all girls who ride to school wear helmets.
Safety and Security
The school gates will be open from 7:00 to 8:00, from 13:00 to 13:30, and from 14:30 to 15:00. Should the girls have extra-mural activities, they can leave the school grounds through the pedestrian gate that can be opened from the inside. Persons needing to enter the school grounds must please identify themselves clearly and state the purpose of their visit. We urgently request parents to assist us in our efforts to keep all pupils and staff safe.
Communication with Parents
Newsletters are mailed every alternate Tuesday. Parents are requested to return all reply slips within 2 days. Newsletters are also posted on the school communicator.
