Please be advised that you need to report to reception after signing in at the gate. Under NO circumstances are you allowed to go directly to your child’s classroom. Teachers may not be called out of their classrooms under any circumstances.

Contact from outside companies:

It has come to our attention that, following a form from a Maths company being handed out at school, a representative called on a parent and was very rude and tried to pressure her into purchasing the programme. Another parent was called with a message that they were calling from Durban Primary to make an appointment. Please note, we would never send anyone to your home or let anyone call to make an appointment to call on you at home. We have taken this up with the company concerned.

School fees – should be paid up for the year.
Photographs will be handed out with school reports, for paid up parents.

Paid up mugs have arrived and will be handed out shortly.
