STAFF MATTERS

We bid farewell to Mrs Buys. We thank her sharing her expertise in the Afrikaans Department.

 

CURRENT AFFAIRS SOCIETY (CAS)

A successful June 16 programme was held at LHS on Saturday 8 June under the banner of the Joint Cultural Society. One of the aims was to commemorate the heroic youth of 1976 and to identify the challenges facing young people today. The afternoon was filled with the sound of marimbas, poetry and two emotive skits. There were lessons for teachers, parents and students on how to draw inspiration from their struggles and to build a future in which ALL can live fulfilled lives. We would like to thank all pupils for their commitment  and attendance at both programmes.

 

NEWS FROM THE RCL

 

An initiative by our very own RCL to clean up our toilets by painting them, was also undertaken this term. The collaboration between the RCL and the PREFECT body, joined by many other learners, once again displayed what can be achieved when we all work together. Dedicated learners spent the last few days of the term painting the bathroom walls with paint donated by Mr Akleker, a parent and by Mr Maged , an alumni. It is our hope that learners will treat these facilities with respect and that vandalism will be a thing of the past.

The RCL once again reminded us in the Freedom Day/ Workers’Day Assembly that as South Africans we can never truly be free while we still face discrimination on all levels, and our workers are still being exploited.

 

MTN EMPLOYEES GIVE BACK TO THE YOUTH

 

MTN  LIBRARY RENOVATION

 

Marlo Paulse (ex-Livingstonian) had suggested our school to be a beneficiary of MTN SA’s Foundation project. MTN EMPLOYEES  have donated 5 laptops to be used for research, 2 printers, a projector screen and a new lick of paint for the library. The MTN team have done such a beautiful job cleaning up and painting the library space. THANK YOU, MTN for taking us into the 21st CenturyJ.

 

For their 16 days of Youth Activism MTN employees

have donated four eco benches for the garden and erected a new volleyball net. On Friday,the handover will take place beginning with a motivational talk by Jarrad Ricketts and live entertainment  by well known singers ; Jarrad Ricketts and Robyn Peters.

Thank you for showing our youth how much you care by  working  to transform their space into a dream come true!

A huge THANK YOU to those parents and volunteers who assisted with invigilation in the June examinations. The parents are :

Mrs S. Oosthuizen,  Mrs F. Erasmus ; Mrs S. Davus

We would like to encourage more parents to avail themselves for the November examinations.

Please contact Ms Ganie at the school if you are willing to assist.

 

FINANCIAL MATTERS

Special thanks to those parents/ guardians who are fully paid up or who are up to date with the payment of fees.  It remains a concern, however, that some fee accounts are heavily overdue.  This places a strain on the school’s financial resources and our ability to meet our monthly financial commitments.

Please note :

  1. Half the school fees should be paid by 30 June 2019 ;
  2. The entire account should be settled by 31 October 2019. If not the account will be handed over for debt collection.
  3. Applications for school fee exemption are now closed.

 

CONCLUSION

Please be advised that students must adhere to the dress code of the school. Any caps and scarves worn during the winter period must be navy (preferably school design). Any items that do not form part of the official school uniform, will be confiscated.

 

 

School reopens on Tuesday, 9 July 2018.
