Last day of school:  Please note that there will be NO AFTERCARE on the last day of school – 4th December. Please ensure that your children are collected from school at 12:00pm. There will be no supervision at the school from 12:30pm. If you cannot collect your children then please make alternative arrangements for them to go home with a friend.

Resignations:  Mrs Sarah Diedericks (Grade 1) and Mrs Bev McVicker (Admin) have tendered their resignations and will be leaving us at the end of the year.  Mrs D will be pursuing other interests and Bev will be taking up a position at a school closer to home and more suited to her family circumstances.

Mrs Alicia Truter, 345 Swim School manager will be moving to a Swim School closer to home.

While we are always sad to loose special staff we are excited at the prospects for next year. I will inform you as soon as their replacements have been appointed.

Accounts: Please ensure all payments are made into the Standard Bank account, with the child’s name and surname or new account number (beginning with 60…) as a payment reference.  The old Nedbank account has been closed – any payments made into this account will be for your own responsibility to recover, as we no longer have access to this account.

A reminder to please complete and return the letter relating to the 2016 billing structure to your class teacher or Joanne Bevan via email (fees@carlswaldhouse.co.za) by the 30th of November.  December statement of accounts will be going out on the 23rd of November.  Please contact Joanne on above email address or telephone number 0110290802 should you not receive it.

Please ensure all payments for the remainder of the year are paid by the 7th December and January fees are paid by the 7th January 2016 (with the exception to those parents who have opted for the annual payment option, which is payable up front in full by no later than the 31st of January 2016).

No child will be allowed to recommence school in January if fees are outstanding.  If you are unable to make the payment date, please contact Joanne.
