PLEDGE OF LOYALTY

  • I pledge myself to remember that at all times and in all places I am the School’s representative.
  • I will therefore strive to refrain from any word or deed which may bring discredit upon it.
  • I will endeavour to be loyal to the staff and to all my fellow learners.
  • I would ever seek to be worthy of the School, to add to its lustre, and to cherish its highest traditions.
  • I will try to play my part in passing it on to others, not less, but greater and better than it was passed on to me.

 

CORRESPONDENCE

Correspondence concerning any school matter, e.g. letters concerning school procedure, appointments, etc. must be addressed to the Principal and in written in form. (Fort nightly newsletters are sent out on a Friday via the communicator).  Parents are expected to install the communicator on their computers.

Should parents wish to take a child out of school during the school term for whatever reason, such a request must be submitted to the principal in writing for approval.  Approval will only be granted if the child has fulfilled all responsibilities which may be due during the time of absence from school ie tests, assignments, projects, orals etc.  It will be the parent’s sole responsibility to find out what these tasks are and ensure that all is submitted before departure.  Please note that if a child is away during a scheduled test and misses such a test the child will forfeit the marks for this test as there will not be any make-up test.  These conditions are not negotiable!


CHANGE OF ADDRESS

Kindly inform the school in writing immediately of any change of address or telephone numbers.
