SPCA SCHOOL COLLECTION TINS AND BLANKETS
The SPCA in Pietermaritzburg desperately needs blankets for their animals for winter. They have asked schools to help with this drive. Our school will be collecting any suitable blankets, rugs or towels . The SPCA is also running a collection tin competition. Every class is given their own tin to collect any small change. The tins will be collected the tins early in the
3rd term. The winning class in the school will win a pizza party for their class. We will start collecting blankets and coins from tomorrow.

CAR PARK AND COLLECTION
The waiting area at the car park is out of bounds for learners between 2:20 pm and 3:15 pm Mondays to Thursdays. It has come to our notice that there are a number of children who are not being collected on time. If your child is not doing sport or attending Aftercare she must be collected by 2:L20 at the latest, otherwise she will be sent to sport until 3:15 pm. NO exceptions will be made to this rule. If you cannot make it by 2:20 pm then come after 3:15 pm.
