GRADE 11 SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
As anticipated, the COVID 19 Pandemic has seriously impacted on the operational requirements of all schools. Considering the fact that the Grade 10 learners are due to return on Monday, the 20th of July, and in order to comply with health and safety measures as prescribed by the government, the School Management Team have decided to adopt a rotational timetable system whereby the Grade 11 learners will be required to remain at home from the 20th to the 25th of July so that we can facilitate the return of our Grade 10 learners. All Grade 11 learners will however be expected to continue with on-line learning as developed by educators at the school. If your child has yet not subscribed to Google Classroom, kindly follow the following guidelines and procedures as outlined. Grade 11 learners will resume contact learning at school on the 27th of July 2020.
Parents will be timeously informed if Grade 10, 11, and 12 will be required to attend classes simultaneously, or whether a rotational system will be used. Furthermore, take note that Grade 12 learners will be expected to attend classes every day, unless external factors result in the school being temporarily closed.
