Dear Parents and Learners

I would like to make use of this opportunity to wish every staff member, learner and parent/guardian a prosperous, safe and blessed 2021.

On behalf of myself and the School Management Team I would like to welcome back all teachers (both newly appointed as well as the “Survivor” team of 2020) and learners.  A special welcome to our Gr. 8’s.  You are very important to us and therefore we are excited that you have decided to become part of our school.  You now have the opportunity to become part of our winning team and develop into a true, proud Callie.  We trust that you will grasp every opportunity which the school offers you to excel.

We are looking forward to this new year and all its possible challenges even though we are suffering tremendously under the Covid-19 pandemic.  We had to  greet a number of our trusted staff due to retirement, new job opportunities, promotions and various other reasons.  We have suffered financially as well, mostly due to parents/guardians not honouring their school fee obligations.  But, God willing, we have managed to stay afloat.  We successfully fulfilled all our duties regarding teaching, assessing and promoting our learners in such a way that makes me extremely proud.

I want to assure you that all is well at school.  We are blessed with a committed S.G.B., School Management Team and educators, as well as disciplined and diligent learners.  We are hard at work preparing for the return of our first learners on the 15th of February.  Your children will be safe and well cared for at school.

Parents, please assist us regarding our learners’ appearance, discipline, school attendance and punctuality to ensure the functionality of the school. (Late coming will and can not be tolerated as it causes innumerable challenges)

Remember the slogan:  “Teamwork makes the dream work!”

Please follow us on the school’s communicator and Facebook page for information regarding school activities. (At least on a weekly basis)

Good luck to all during this year with its many challenges ahead.  May we see every challenge as an opportunity.

 

Callies Greetings.

 

Mr. Deon Le Roux

Acting Principal
