With June exams just around the corner, time planning is becoming ever-increasingly vital. Learners need
to start studying now already if they wish to do well in the June exams. A reminder that the June exams
make up half the year-mark in every subject and is the ideal opportunity to bank some marks before the
final exams in November.


Parents and learners are reminded that Winter Uniform needs to be worn to school. Also please note that
a pair of proper black lace-up school shoes for boys is compulsory.
Please note that the dress code also applies during the exam times.

Thought to ponder:

If I had my life to live over, I'd dare to make more mistakes next time. I'd relax; I'd limber up. I would be
sillier than I have been this trip. I would take fewer things seriously. I would take more chances. I would
climb more mountains and swim more rivers. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would perhaps
have more actual troubles, but I'd have fewer imaginary ones.

You see, I'm one of those people who lived sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I had
my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I'd have more of them. In fact, I'd try to have nothing else.
Just moments, one after the other, instead of living so many years ahead of each day. I've been one of
those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat, and a
parachute. If I had it to do over again, I would travel lighter than I have.

If I had my life to live over again, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the
fall. I would go to more dance; I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.

                                                                                              NADINE STAIR
God bless.
