S.P SPORTS DAY

Our S.P Sports Day will start at 8:30 am on Wednesday 23 September. All Senior Primary parents are invited to attend.

SENIOR PRIMARY CONCERT

Parents please book early to ensure that you are able to buy a ticket. It will be sad if you don’t get a ticket and are therefore unable to see your daughter perform.

THE LONG WEEKEND

On Wednesday 23rd September there will be no sport or other extra mural activities after school as it is the long weekend. There will be Aftercare as normal. Parents, we encourage you to collect your daughter early.

CHANGE OF BREAK-UP DAY

School will close a day early on Thursday 1st October at the normal time. Grade RR to 2 classes will close at 12:30 pm and Grade 4 to 7 classes at 2:00 pm. On Friday 2 October the teachers will have time for staff development.

SWIMMING TIME

Our school shop now has LGS swimming towels. They are navy blue with a school badge and have a place for names. The towels cost R150 each. We are no longer going to sell lycra (material) swimming caps. They stretch too easily and the hair gets sopping wet.

SPRINGBOK CIVVIES

After our 1 week holiday we will start school again on 12th October. There will be 2 more Springbok civvies. The first one on Friday 16th October and the second on Friday 23rd October.
