Only affects GrR-Gr3 

Grade R – Lengthening of school day until 13:15
Grade 1,2 and 3 – Lengthening of school day until 13:45

Lengthening the school day has many benefits –
• Children will have more time to complete the necessary work,
• Staff will have more time to do the necessary assessments as per the CAPS curriculum,
• Children will be in class instead of waiting on the pavement for lifts.
• Children will be able to go directly to extramurals after school.
• All children will finish at the same time, making it more convenient for parents to fetch.

Please adjust any transport arrangements to suite the new times so your children get fetched on time.
