Isiah 40:30 - 31
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Dear parents

Welcome! To all our Grade 2 learners and then a warm welcome to all the new Grade 1 learners, new learners that joined Benjamin Prep this year as well as all our Grade R learners. We would also like to welcome Ms. Mahraj, our new Grade 2 teacher.

School Times – Gr R - 2:
Monday to Friday: 7:45 – 14:00
Aftercare: 14:00 – 18:00

It is of utmost importance that your child/ren are at school on time. Please also ensure to collect your child/ren on time in the afternoon. Should you wish to make use of our Aftercare Facility, please ask for enrollment forms at Reception.

Uniform:
School uniform should be worn to school every day. Should your child have PE/Extra Murals, they will change into their kit before the time and will change back into their uniform before leaving the premises. We want our children to always be neat and proud of their school and therefore their uniform. Instill these values at home as well and remind them to always look neat, doesn’t matter where they are.

Sports/Extra Murals:
Take note of the following days that PE or Extra Murals will take place to ensure your child/ren do bring the correct sports kit to school. Should they not have the proper kit, they will not be allowed to take part.

Absenteeism:
When your child/ren do not attend school or are not allowed to take part in extra murals/PE, please send a note to the class teacher. A doctor’s note is required when absent for 3 consecutive days or longer.

Stationery:
All stationery should be sent back to school marked, as well as all uniform, sports kit, water bottles and lunch boxes. This is the only way we can try and find lost property.
