Dear Parents


Just when we thought we had a taste of some warmer weather, we had to revert to jackets and boots!   We are however grateful for the rain in the hopes that our dams will fill up with much sought-after water.

We would like to welcome a new intern to our staff.  She is Miss Thando Tshabalala and will be based with the Grade R and N boys for the remainder of this year.  Thando is presently studying Foundation Phase teaching and we wish her a long and happy relationship with Bishops teachers, parents and boys.

We hope to see Grade 1 and 2 boy’s tomorrow morning for Tag @ 8am.  Next week will be the last Saturday session this year.

Please be reminded that all boys signed up for sport will be supervised if it is raining.  The coaches will do indoor coaching sessions covering interesting aspects of the game, sportsmanship and game plans.  Kindly mark all tracksuits and uniforms to avoid items being lost.
