DAY GIRLS

An accident waiting to happen! Yes, an accident waiting to happen if drivers continue to ignore basic traffic rules when collecting or dropping the learners off at school. Please parents and girls who use taxis need to speak to the drivers to help to prevent the congestions in Kock Street at the school hall. Parents may not drive into the school grounds to drop off or fetch learners. Taxis and large cars are requested NOT to park near the gates as it limits the visibility for educators leaving the premises. We all are responsible to ensure the safety of our learners.

Day Girl Fund Every day girl is expected to contribute R120 per year to the Day Girl Fund. This will be used for the Christmas party and for another fun event with the aim of promoting unity amongst the Day girls.

Extra Mural The school has made provisions for school afterhours / after dark due to bad weather i.e. rain / lightening. The Grade 8s will go to School House hostel and Grades 9-12 will go to East House hostel.

Tuck Shop The tuck shop is open from 13:30-16:00 daily. We encourage the parents to supply a healthy lunch for your daughter. The tuck shop does have healthy sandwiches as well.

Academic Outings / Culture / Sports Most of the academic, culture and sports outings are out of town. Parents please pack a lunch packet i.e. chicken burger or sandwich / a fruit / fruit juice plus pocket money. At some of the venues the girls attend do not have tuck shop facilities.

Afternoon Study The Grade 8-11 day girls may use Room D & E in first quad to study in the afternoons and Matrics will use Room F in first quad.

DAY GIRLS / BOARDERS

Grade 8 Ranking The reason for the ranking is to teach the learners punctuality. They need to rank from 07h00 07h10. All grade 8 day girls and boarders have to rank. No ranking takes place during winter or during exams.

General Hair Regulations Hair regulations are very clear in the Code of Conduct, please adhere to these regulations:

Hair regulations must be adhered to at school and during all extra mural activities. All hairstyles must be suitable for the correct fit of the basher. (i.e. the basher’s brim is to be horizontal to the ground).

Hair may not be worn in pigtails, side-ponies or loose, ‘messy’ buns.

Single ponytails, plaits and neat French plaits are allowed.

Only neat plaited dreadlocks will be allowed, provided the plaiting is low enough on the head to still allow the basher to fit properly.

No Bongo (Rasta) dreadlocks are permitted.

Afternoon dress is regarded as school uniform, therefore the hair regulations apply in these instances as well.

If a learner’s hair does not comply with the regulations, she will be confined to the school grounds at all times and will not be allowed to represent the school at public functions / attend school functions / have town leave.
