Message from the Acting Principal

The week started off with netball balls bouncing and soccer balls being kicked, and I must admit it was a phenomenal scene to see our fields and courts being utilised for the reasons they were built for, and not for parking or seating arrangements. The learners thoroughly enjoyed being active again and I do hope that this will continue without any further interruptions. I would like to encourage our parents to peruse the extramural timetable with their kids and ensure that they know where and when their extramural takes place. 

A huge thank you to every staff member and coach that made this possible for the learners. I also strongly advise that kids are encouraged by their parents to follow all the necessary protocols when it comes to extramurals and the tuck shop.

Aftercare 2021

The Aftercare programme has resumed, and our parents and kids are very grateful for the routine that it creates.
Please email aftercare@bryanstonprimary.co.za if you are interested in sending your child to aftercare.
Please provide the following details: Name Surname | Grade.

Alternatively, you can fill out the form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

School Fees

A sincere gratitude to all of our parents that are keeping up to date with school fees. I would like to encourage parents to honour their financial commitments as the running costs of the school is still ongoing. Please communicate with us if you are experiencing financial difficulties regarding school fees.

    Reminders

    Mount Street Parking

    There are still many parents who are entering the NO RIGHT TURN area on Mount Street. Please adhere to all road signals to assist with the flow of traffic. Please obey all instructions given by our security guards.

    JMPD have informed BPS that they will be doing spot visits to the school to monitor and assist with regulating traffic.

    JMPD have also suggested that parents drive up Mount Street (if coming from Grosvenor), and turn into Cross Road (towards the gym) and then join onto Main Road to flow into William Nicol, if you need to get back onto William Nicol Drive.

    There is a NO RIGHT TURN sign on Mount Street, on the island (coming from Grosvenor) that indicates that no cars coming from Grosvenor are allowed to turn right into the parking area. Please adhere to all road signs in order to assist with traffic congestion.
