START OF SECOND TERM: With the election day set to take place on the 8th May 2019, in the week our pupils return to school, the school management has taken a decision that school will stick to the original calendar and commence on the 7th May 2019 as planned. School will be closed for National Elections on 8th May and pupils will return to school on 9th May. We ask all parents to support the school and not take an extended break due to the disrupted week as this has an adverse effect on the academic programme.

Aftercare:  Parents as of the 1st March please note that children waiting for their older sibling to finish an activity will be signed into aftercare and you will be billed.  The number of siblings has grown substantially at 345 and CHP and as a school, we are now unable to accommodate and supervise children waiting for siblings to finish their co-curricular activities for free any longer. Therefore, they would need to be collected as soon as they have finished with school or they will be signed into aftercare and cared for.

Very Important: Please take note of the following:  Parents when you receive emails from the ED-Admin email, please Do Not reply to this email.  Mails sent from Ed Admin are system generated emails.  Please direct all your emails to , ,


Lunch Programme The children are enjoying the snack and lunch that they are receiving daily.  Lunch is optional for all Grade 1-7 learners.  You can choose the lunch programme at an extra charge of R700-00 per month or you may pack your child’s own lunch.  Please email Karen Visser if you would like your child to be fed at school.

Gr 1-7: Very Important Parents if your child is not on the school lunch programme and you are packing their own lunch, please ensure that you pack enough lunch for your child.  They will require a morning snack, lunch and an afternoon snack. NO sweets or fizzy drinks please!
