A very warm welcome to 2019! To our new KPNS families, I am so pleased that you have chosen to make KPS your home! To our ‘old’ families, welcome back! I trust that you are all feeling well-rested and ready for an awesome year ahead! Our KPNS Newsletter will be sent out on a bi-weekly basis. All additional information and reminders will be sent via your child’s message book or via SMS/Whatsapp.

In addition to welcoming our new families to KPNS, I would also like to welcome Mrs Tracey Ueckermann (Blue Group) and Mrs Lisa Howell (Red Group) to our staff. We are thrilled to have you on our team!

HATS, SUNSCREEN AND WATERBOTTLES

A reminder that your child needs to have a hat and water bottle at school every day and suncream should be applied at home. If need be, we will top up on suncream during the course of the morning.

FORMS

If you have not yet done so, please complete or update and return, all required forms which you would have received in your information pack. These were also sent via email to our 2018 parents. It is vitally important that all information is up to date. Thank you for your assistance in this regard.

SCHOOL TIMES AND MOTORISED GATE

A reminder that our school gate is opened at 07:00 and closed promptly at 08:00. Please ensure that your child is at school on time (Grade 0 at 07:45) as it is very disruptive and unsettling for your child and their class when children arrive late for class.

We have a motorised gate which leads to additional parking up the side of the school. Please note that this gate will be closed at 08:05. Please ensure that you have exited this parking area before it is closed. I am doing my utmost to ensure that our property is as safe and secure for your child as possible. This ensures that there is no access to our school, apart from through our main entrance. The gate will be re-opened at 12:20 in the afternoon.

GRADE 0 PARENT ORIENTATION

I would like to encourage all Grade 0 Parents to attend our Grade 0 Parent Orientation on Tuesday, 22 January, from 18:00 - 19:00, in your child's class. The teachers will be sharing important information regarding your child's year, as well as giving you a chance to ask any questions you may have.

GRADE 0 TUCK AND PE

Please note that Tuck will start next week Friday, 25 January, and PE will start the week of the 28th of January. You will receive more information regarding Tuck and PE at Parent Orientation.

I trust that you will have a super weekend and I am looking forward to a wonderful year together!
