Ons skep ‘n ruimte vir elke leerder. Ons akademiese standaarde vir die akademiese sterk leerder is ‘n uitdaging, maar ons akademies gemiddelde leerder is ook suksesvol. Ons motiveer elke leerder tot akademiese betrokkenheid: hoë insette lei tot hoë uitsette.

If the learner’s parent doesn’t make personal contact with the Grade Head or Principal on the day of absence and no doctor’s note has been handed in, a zero mark will be allocated.If a learner is absent for less than 2 days with a doctor’s note – the learner will write the test on the first day back at school.


If the learner is absent for more than 3 days with a doctor’s note – on the first day back at school the learner must report to the Grade Head with his/her doctor’s note to schedule all tests that have been missed. ASSIGNMENTS/TUTORIALS/PROJECTS NOT HANDED IN, ORALS NOT DONE

If a learner is absent on the day that the work is due to be handed in, he/she is expected to hand in the work on the first day he/she returns to school, irrespective if the subject appears on that day’s time table, or else, a zero mark will be awarded.
No work will be accepted after due date. Learners have to plan and organize a work schedule to complete all work as stipulated. For any work not handed in on time, no marks will be allocated.
Orals must be arranged with the relevant teacher, the first day back at school. No arrangement, no marks.
