Message from the Principal

Term 3 has started, and I am happy to say that we had several departmental visits and that the school has passed all safety and compliance visits with flying colours.  Our learners have settled in and are hard at work, and we are looking forward to a successful term.  I would like to encourage our parents to reiterate the importance of keeping social distance to our learners.

Unfortunately, we had an incident of road rage in Mount Street this week between two of our parents.  I would like to remind our school community that we are dealing with little kids at school.  Please behave in an appropriate way in and around the school facilities. The learners who witnessed this behaviour upset their whole school day.

We have received very exciting news this week.  A Government Gazette was released that allows the reopening of sport and extra murals.  The extra mural programme will be published next week and will resume on Monday 16 August.  Internal skills development will take preference as we work towards inter schools’ participation soon.

I would like to take the opportunity to wish all the women in our school community a happy Woman’s Day.  Thank you for all you do!

School Fees

A sincere gratitude to all 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.

Grade R

It is with lots of excitement that I can announce that Bryanston Primary School will start their own Grade R in January 2022.  Applications for Grade R is open.  Please contact Mrs van Eeden at grader@bryanstonprimary.co.za for any further information.

    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.

    We ask that parents follow this procedure for lightning and heavy rain. Please use the contact numbers for WHATSAPP ONLY if parents or transport companies are at the gate and they need learners to be sent to their respective dismissal points only when there is lightning or heavy rain.

    No incoming phone calls will be allowed on these phones. This phone will not be used for any other purpose other than it’s intended use. It is only used for WHATSAPP messages during inclement weather.

    WHATSAPP message should only have Name, Surname and Grade of the learner who needs to be sent to the gate (e.g. Joe Soap Grade 4A to be sent to the gate).
