2018 MEDICINE POLICY

According to law, medicine should not be administered to learners. To accommodate this we have designed a form on which parents can give permission to the school to administer certain medicines.  If you do not approve in writing then no medicine will be given to your child when he/she is not feeling well and you as parent will be contacted to collect your child from school if an urgent situation arises.

Medication Policy

2018 MEDISYNEBELEID

MEDISYNEBELEID: Volgens wetgewing mag ons nie medisyne aan leerlinge voorsien nie. Ons het egter ‘n vorm ontwerp waarby u, as ouer, toestemming verleen dat ons spesifieke medikasie kan toedien. Indien u nie toestemming verleen nie sal geen medikasie aan u kind gegee word nie, en sal u geskakel word om u kind by die skool te kom haar. Vul asseblief die meegaande vorm in en stuur terug na u kind se registeronderwyser.

Extra Mural Programme: 1st and 2nd Term 2018:

Dear Parents

We’ve put together our Top 5 reasons why we think children should play sport.  We believe playing sports offers kids of all age’s countless benefits and assists in improving their physical, social and mental well-being.

  1. Sports boost self-esteem.Children learn to be confident on the field. Seeing their hard work pay off brings about loads of self-confidence. When kids achieve their goals on the field it teaches them they can achieve any other goal they set later on down the track.
  2. Playing sports help develop teamwork and leadership skills.Working toward a common goal helps children develop communication and problem-solving skills that will benefit them on the field and off.
  3. It’s a natural stress reliever.Exercise is a great way for kids to loosen up and let go. Sports also help kids develop relationships, which become a support system for them.
  4. Kids develop lifelong healthy lifestyle habits.Regular physical activity improves a child’s fitness and helps them to stay in shape.
  5. It’s fun!It gives your child a group to belong to. They have a group of friends that has the same goals and interests.

Please take note of the following important issues:

  1. In event of inclement weather, decisions by the headmaster related to the cancellation of practices will only be taken at 13:00 on practice days. Please do not phone the school before this time.
  2. Correct sports clothes must be worn for all practices. No baggy shorts will be allowed on the rugby field. Please wear proper rugby shorts. No lady tops/spaghetti straps tops for netball practice.
  3. Parents are to please be waiting for learners at least 30 minutes before time of arrival for away fixtures. Educators will only wait 15 minutes after arrival back to school.
  4. Participants must excuse themselves before FIRST break if they cannot attend a practice or match. (NOTE: NOT at the end of the school day).
  5. IF A LEARNER IS ILL OR UNABLE TO ATTEND A MATCH PARENTS ARE TO PLEASE NOTIFY THE EDUCATOR BY 10:00 SO THAT REPLACEMENT CAN BE FOUND.
  6. Once committed to an activity, learners are expected to attend all practices and matches.  We do not allow learners to switch between sports codes eg. from hockey to netball half way into the season.
  7. Please communicate with the respective coaches if you encounter any problems or have any requests or suggestions.

 Yours in sport

BUITEMUURSE PROGRAM: 1e en 2e Kwartaal 2018:

Beste Ouers

Ons het die 5 top redes saamgestel om te bepaal waarom ons dink dat dit ‘n goeie idee is dat leerlinge sport moet speel.  Om aan ‘n sportsoort deel te neem gee leerlinge van alle ouderdomme menige voordele en dra by tot hulle fisiese, sosiale en geestelike ontwikkeling.

  1. Sport bou selfvertroue en eie waarde:Kinders leer om met selfvertroue te speel, veral as hulle sien dat hulle harde werk vrugte afgewerp het. As hulle, hulle mikpunte en doelwitte bereik op die sportveld leer dit hulle dat hulle al hulle ander doelwitte ook kan bereik.
  2. Sport help ontwikkel spanwerk en leierskaps eienskappe: Deur saam te werk aan ‘n gemeenskaplike doel of mikpunt help dit kinders om kommunikasie-asook probleemoplossings- vaardighede te ontwikkel. Leerlinge kan die voordeel daarvan op die veld asook in die klaskamer en in die lewe daarbuite benut.
  3. Dit is ‘n natuurlike stres ontlaaier: Oefening is ‘n wonderlike manier om kinders te help ontspan en “te laat gaan”. Dit help hulle verder met die bou van verhoudinge wat as ‘n ondersteuningstesel kan dien.
  4. Dit help kinders om ‘n lewenslange gesonde leefstyl te ontwikkel: Gereelde fisise aktiwiteit verbeter ‘n kind se fiksheid en help hulle om ‘n gesonde liggaam te ontwikkel.
  5. DIS PRET!!Dit gee kinders ‘n groep waarvan hulle deel kan wees. Hulle is saam met ‘n groep met dieselfde belangstellings.

 

Neem kennis van die volgende belangrike sake:

 

  1. Indien die weer nie toelaat dat ons met die sportoefening voortgaan nie sal daar teen 13:00 ‘n sms aan ouers gestuur word dat die sport gekanselleer is.  Die afrigter sal steeds beskikbaar wees om toesig te hou oor leerlinge wat nie gehaal kan word nie. Oefeninge sal slegs in uiterste gevalle gekanselleer word.
  2. Verseker dat leerlinge asseblief toepaslike oefendrag saambring skooltoe. Dit moet van so ‘n aard wees dat die spesifieke sport daarin gespeel kan word.
  3. Tydens weg wedstryde moet ouers ten minste 30 voor die busse arriveer by die skool wees om hul kinders te kom haal.  Onderwysers sal slegs vir 15 minute hier wees om toesig te hou.
  4. Leerlinge moet hulself reeds teen eerste pouse by die afrigter van die sport verskoon indien hulle nie die oefening kan bywoon nie.
  5. INDIEN U KIND SIEK IS VIR ‘N WEDSTRYD MOET U ASSEBLIEF DIE AFRIGTER VROEGTYDIG LAAT WEET SODAT ‘N PLAASVERVANGER GEVIND KAN WORD. VERKIESLIK DIE VORIGE DAG , OF TEEN 10:00 OP DIE DAG VAN DIE WEDSTRYD.
  6. Sodra ‘n leerling hom/haarself aan ‘n sport verbind het, verwag ons dat hulle elke oefening en wedstryd sal bywoon.  Leerlinge word nie toegelaat om in die middel van ‘n seisoen van sportkode te verander nie bv. van hokkie na netbal. Indien u kind nie vir ‘n span gekies word nie, help hom/haar om nie moed te verloor nie en summier op te hou nie.  Leer hulle dat dit deel van die lewe is en dat hulle moet aanhou.  Daar is baie ander voordele wat hulle uit die sport kan put.
  7. Kommunikeer asseblief gereeld met die afrigters indien u probleme ervaar of voorstelle het.  Moet nie u ongelukkigheid deel met die gemeenskap voordat die skool nie alles in hulle vermoë gedoen het om u te help nie.

CIRCULAR  1 OF 2018

Dear Parents

CIRCULAR  1 OF 2018

Welcome to the 2018 school year.  We trust that this year will be an exceptional one for you and your child here at the Hutties.

We would particularly like to welcome all new learners and parents to the Huttie family.  We will ensure that your child will make friends quickly and get involved in the school programme and activities.

Please take note of the following important matters:

  1. INFORMATION EVENINGS: Information evenings have been planned for parents with their children’s register teachers.  At these meetings the teachers will give parents more information on what to expect during the year that lies ahead.  It is important that you attend these meetings in the best interest of your child.  Meetings will commence at 17:30.

Grade 1: Wednesday 17 January

Grade 2 : Thursday 18 January

Grade 3 & 7: Monday 22 January

Grade 4: Tuesday 23 January

Grade 5: Wednesday 24 January

Grade 6: Thursday 25 January

Grade 1-3 parents must go directly to your child’s register class. Grade 4-7 parents meet in the school hall before moving to the respective register classes.

 

  1. STAFF: The following members of staff have joined our dynamic team: Mrs Marcel Oosthuizen (English Home Language Gr 6 & 7), Mr Eric Blandin de Chalain (LO, Tech, Geog, Hist), Mrs Marié Jonker (Gr 3 Afr), Ms Dioné Forrester and Ms Megan Steenkamp (Class assistants), Mrs Charmain Swanepoel Grade RR (Huttenpark Kleutersentrum).  Mrs Debbie Motte has been appointed in the HippoTique. We trust that they will be very happy at the Hutties.
  2. SCHOOL TIMES: Please take note of the school times: School starts at 07:30 promptly for all learners, and the last bell rings at 13:15 (Gr 1 & 2), 13:30 (Gr 3) and 14:00 (Gr 4-7) from Monday to Thursday. On Fridays Grade 1 – 3 learners will be dismissed at 12:30 and the rest of the school at 13:30. Please ensure that your child/ren is/are at school ON TIME.  Prefects will lock all the gates at 07:30 and any late arrivals will have to report to the front office with their parents. Please adapt your transport arrangements accordingly. Ensure that your child is at school by 07:25.

 

  1. WAITING CLASS: For the convenience of Gr 1-3 learners a Waiting Class is in operation where learners can wait for their older brothers and sisters or parents who pick them up by 14:00.  This is a free service.  Please make use of it and do not allow children to wait unattended in the road in front of the school.

 

  1. AFTERCARE: A well-equipped Aftercare Centre is available at school where your child/ren can be accommodated every afternoon from 13:00 to 17:15.  This is ideal for parents who work full time and have a problem with where to leave their child/ren.  Two full time ladies are employed by the school.  All learners will also go to a homework session of one hour with Mrs C van Rooyen (Gr 1 & 2) and Mrs M Jonker & J Grobler (Gr 3-7).

We believe that we offer a first class service and provide a place of safety.

  1. SCHOOL FEES 2018: At the AGM of Parents, school fees were approved as indicated below:

Grades 1 – 7:  R 11 540 per learner

Grade 1:  R 11 540 of which R 700 was paid in October, then an instalment of R490 in January and R 1 190 pm from February to October.

Grade 2-7: Normal payments can be made over 10 months from the end of January:     R 1 190 in January and from February to the end of October R 1 150 pm.               No discount of school fees paid in advance will be given this year.

 

Further discounts:  If a parent has 3 or more children in the school, please contact

the office to see if you qualify for further reductions in school fees.  The third child

will qualify for a 50% reduction, but each request will be processed on merit.  Children 1 and 2 will still pay the full amounts.

Cut- off date:  Monthly payments are due before or on the 7th day of each following month.  After this date legal steps will be taken immediately.  Summons will be forwarded each term and all legal costs will be added to your account.

Arrangements:  Parents are advised that any arrangements made in 2017 regarding school fees are now null and void and a new application has to be made in writing as soon as possible.  Address all correspondence to the Governing Body Chairperson, please.

Exemptions:  In certain cases some parents do qualify for exemption or partial exemption from school fees.  Documentation in this regard is available from Mrs Sheila Lizen, the financial secretary.  All applications must reach the school by 28 February 2018.  You will also need to be able to motivate your request to the Governing Body at an interview which you will have to attend.

 

ELECTRONIC BANKING:  details as follows:

Nedbank / Branch Code: 164826

Cheque Account / Account Number: 1648094295

 

Please indicate clearly on the deposit slip your child’s name and surname, his/her grade or the reference number as shown on the account.  Proof of payment must be emailed to finance@huttenpark.co.za or faxed to the office at 0867321499.  Take note of the new fax number.

We request that, if possible, you pay each child’s account separately.

Please make arrangements timeously if you encounter any problems regarding payment of school fees.

All tour, clothing, excursion etc. monies paid by EFT – :  clearly indicate child’s name, grade and precisely what the money is for, otherwise it will be credited to your child’s school fees account.  We still receive monies with no indications for whom or where it should be allocated – and these funds are lying unclaimed on our books.

 

Thank you to all parents who have already paid this year’s school fees.

Remember that we have a debit order facility which ensures that you do not forget to pay school fees late.

 

  1. MEDICINE POLICY: According to law, medicine should not be administered to learners. To accommodate this we have designed a form on which parents can give permission to the school to administer certain medicines.  If you do not approve in writing then no medicine will be given to your child when he/she is not feeling well and you as parent will be contacted to collect your child from school if an urgent situation arises.

Please fill in the form and send it back to the register teacher as soon as possible.

 

  1. LUNCHES: Just a reminder that wholesome meals are available at R 28 per meal. (Meals e.g. Macaroni & cheese; Cottage Pie; meat balls, mash & peas; wors & vegetables etc.). Meals are served at 12:00 in the Lapa. If you would like to order, please send the money and the order form back to school.  Lunch will be available from Monday 22 January and menus will be sent out in this week.

 

  1. COMMUNICATION WITH PARENTS: Most people these days have access to the internet. Please visit our Huttenpark website @ huttenpark.co.za for all the latest information about the school as well as all the activities.

Register here as well so that you will receive the weekly programme and all circulars via e-mail.  Our staff really go to great trouble to keep this website up to date and interesting.  It is a quick and highly effective way to keep up to date with all school matters where, after all, your child spends a large part of each day. Please use the correct channels to contact your child’s class or subject teacher to discuss any matters with them.

Please be very careful with your Facebook communications.  This is NOT where you should discuss sensitive matters – rather approach the relevant person; otherwise it can lead to an embarrassing situation for all parties involved.

 THE SMS SYSTEM:  Our SMS system is also a very effective way of communication.  We use this system to send you general messages as well as address more personal matters: e.g. to inform you that your child is absent from school, has received a detention letter or even to congratulate you on a special achievement or to see their test results etc.  Please download the Principal Talk+ App from the APP store and refer to the school website for instructions on how to register. The sms system does allow you to answer or write a sms.   It is essential that we have your correct cell phone number.  Please inform us immediately of any changes.

 

  1. CLOTHING AVAILABLE FROM THE HIPPOTIQUE: Do come to the school shop (HippoTique) to buy a “Huttie supporter” shirt for yourself to wear to any sports activity.

Boys and girls can also buy a Huttie cap or a wide-brimmed hat to protect themselves from the hot sun.  They are allowed to wear them to school as well as to sport.

A reminder that the HippoTique is located behind the admin block – where Huttenpark clothing as well as sportswear is available. Those of you who have visited the shop will know that it is fully operational and that we are able to offer the school uniform at more affordable prices.

  1. SUN PROTECTION: The extreme heat we are experiencing currently makes it so much more important to ensure that your child is protected from the sun. Please make use of a SPF30+ sunblock every morning and let your child/ren wear a school hat or cap and ensure that they bring enough water to school to drink.

 

  1. SCHOOL BAGS: I would like to remind you regarding a circular that went out in 2017 regarding the school bag policy. No cases with wheels are to be brought to school with the exception of those learners who are in grade 5, 6 or 7 and had the bags in 2017.

We wish you and your child an unforgettable year.  All the best for what lies ahead in this year.

 

Regards

Geen tjeks word aanvaar nie.

Kom tref asseblief vroegtydig reëlings indien u probleme ervaar.

 

Indien u toergelde, kleregeld of uitstappies per EFT betaal, dui duidelik aan waarvoor die betaling is, anders word die geld aan skoolfonds toegeken.

Ons kry steeds verskeie inbetalings met geen verwysings nie, en die fondse lê onopgeëis in ons boeke.

Dankie vir die ouers wat reeds hul volle skoolfonds vir die jaar betaal het.

 

11.  MEDISYNEBELEID:  Volgens wetgewing mag ons nie medisyne aan leerlinge voorsien nie.  Ons het egter ‘n vorm ontwerp waarby u, as ouer, toestemming verleen dat ons spesifieke medikasie kan toedien.  Indien u nie toestemming verleen nie sal geen medikasie aan u kind gegee word nie, en sal u geskakel word om u kind by die skool te kom haar.  Vul asseblief die meegaande vorm in en stuur terug na u kind se registeronderwyser.

 

12.  MIDDAGETES:  Ons herinner u aan die gesonde, gebalanseerde middagetes wat aan die leerlinge  verskaf word teen R28 per ete (Gr 1-7) en R15 per ete vir kleuters.  (Macaroni & kaas; herderspastei, frikkadelle, kapokaartappel (mash) en ertjies; wors en groente, is maar ‘n paar van die voorbeelde).  Hierdie etes sal op bestelling, van 12:00  beskikbaar wees in die lapa asook by die kleuterskool.  Die spyskaart vir die volgende paar weke is hierby ingesluit.  Stuur u bestelling saam met die kontant skool toe.  Etes sal op Maandag 22 Januarie by HP en 3 Januarie by die kleutersentrum begin.

 

13.  KOMMUNIKASIE VANAF DIE SKOOL:  Die meeste mense het deesdae toegang tot die internet.  Besoek asseblief  Huttenpark se webwerf by www.huttenpark.co.za om al die nuutste inligting oor die skool en sy aktiwiteite te verkry.  Registreer ook asseblief hier sodat u die weeklikse program en omsendbriewe via e-pos en D6 boodskappe kan ontvang.  Ons personeel doen baie moeite om op ‘n gereelde grondslag die webwerf op te dateer.  Dit is ‘n vinnige en effektiewe manier om op hoogte te bly met skoolsake, waar u kind tog die meeste van die dag deurbring.  Skakel gerus met u kind se klasonderwyser om belangrike sake met hulle te bespreek.

Wees asseblief baie versigtig met u Facebook kommunikasie.  Sensitiewe sake moet beslis nie hier aangespreek word nie, en moet liefs met die regte persone opgeneem word.  Dit kan anders vir u en vir ons in ‘n verleentheid ontaard.

Ons het ook ‘n Huttenpark Facebook blad waarby u kan aansluit.  Ons plaas gereeld foto’s en verslae van funksies hierop.

 

Ons sms stelsel is ook ‘n baie effektiewe wyse van kommunikasie.  Ons gebruik die stelsel om algemene boodskappe aan u te stuur asook meer persoonlike boodskappe soos om u te laat weet indien u kind afwesig is, of indien hy/sy ‘n detensiebrief ontvang het of om u geluk te wens met ‘n prestasie. Hulle toetspunte is ook op die stelsel beskikbaar. Met die stelsel kan u antwoord op die boodskap of self ‘n boodskap stuur.  Laai asseblief die Principal Talk+ toep (APP) af en besoek die skool se webwerf om riglyne te kry van hoe om te registreer.  Dit is egter uiters noodsaaklik dat ons te alle tye u korrekte selnommer het.

 

14.  KLERASIE BY DIE HIPPOTIQUE:  Koop gerus in die skoolwinkel (HippoTique) vir u ‘n Huttie ondersteunershemp om na sportgeleenthede te dra.

Seuns en dogters kan ook ‘n Huttie pet of ‘n wyerandhoed koop as beskerming teen die warm son.  Dit kan skool toe asook vir sport gedra word.

15.  SONBESKERMING: In die lig van die uiters warm dae wat ons beleef wil ons aanbeveel dat u kind ‘n skoolpet of breerandhoed skooltoe bring. Verseker dat die items duidelik gemerk is. Leerders word aanbeveel om SPF30 of hoër voor skool aan te wend en weer voor middagsport begin.

 

16.  SKOOLTASSE: Ek herinner u aan die beleid oor wielietjiestasse wat in 2017 aan u gestuur is.  Slegs graad 5, 6 en 7 leerlinge wat wielietjiestasse gehad het mag hulle gebruik tot tyd en wyl hulle vervang moet word.  Die Huttenpark skooltas is in die HippoTique beskikbaar en is verpligtend.

 

Baie sterkte vir die jaar wat voorlê.  Ons glo dit sal ‘n onvergeetlike jaar vir u kind wees.

 

Groete

Hippo and Goose Family Festival 2017.

Dear Parents

Hippo and Goose Family Festival 2017.

facebook_prifileIt is with great excitement that we are proud to announce that our Annual Huttenpark Carnival has had a facelift and that we have decided to move it to the Grey Goose Farm Lodge. It will have a new name: “The Hippo and Goose Family Festival”

We believe moving this festival to a bigger venue will allow us to make this a bigger community event and we hope to have all the support that we have had in the past.

The Festival will take place on the 21 October 2017. It will start at 9:00 and we will be busy until 19:00.

We have a full stage program that includes local singers and bands and we will end off with “Fatman” from The Voice SA. This will be the ideal way to end off the day.

We will have our traditional Flea Market and some very exciting exhibitions on show during the day. Please contact Mrs De Jager at school if you are interested in a stall or would like to show off your business on the day.

For the learners, we have our ever popular Giant Inflatables. Learners have received their forms and can ‘pay off’ the inflatables ticket with their class teachers. This will be an amount of R100 and they will be allowed to go on all the inflatables during the day. Please take note that there will be water slides on the day so pack in an extra set of dry clothes.

At the end of the day the learners and adventurous parents will be allowed to enjoy the exciting Colour Fest in the arena. Learners can order the colour powder from their class teacher at R6 a packet. All orders will be sent to the register classes on the Friday before the festival. There will be limited stock available for sale on the day of the festival.

With the full entertainment programme, parents will be allowed to enjoy themselves in the beer tent, looking out over the stage area.

For the fitness fanatics we will be hosting a Mountain Bike Challenge and a Trail Run in the morning.

Then there is our famous Hippo-Run where we give away a R10 000 cash prize on the day. Learners will receive 1 book per family this year and we ask all families to please support this project.

Due to the high quality of our performers this year we have to charge an entrance fee of R30 per person.

As always, we will be asking parents to support us in this endeavour. Not only on the day but also to promote it as much as you can. Please help us share the information with your friends and family. Look out for the advertisement on Facebook and share it among your friends.

Huttie Greetings

Hippo and Goose Familiefees 2017

Geagte Ouers

facebook_prifileHippo and Goose Familiefees 2017

Dit is met groot opgewondenheid dat ons aankondig dat ons jaarlikse Huttenpark Karnaval ʼn gedaanteverwisseling ondergaan. Ons het besluit om die geleentheid te skuif na die “Grey Goose Farm Lodge” en die geleentheid sal ook voortaan bekend staan as die “Hippo and Goose Familiefees”

 

Ons glo dat die skuif van die fees na ʼn groter plek, meer geleentheid tot uitbreiding en groter gemeenskapsbetrokkenheid teweeg sal bring.

 

Die Fees sal plaasvind op 21 Oktober 2017. Dit sal om 9:00 begin en aanhou tot 19:00.

 

Ons het ʼn besige verhoogprogram wat verskeie plaaslike kunstenaars insluit. Ons gaan die dag op ʼn hoogtepunt afsluit wanneer “Fatman” van “The Voice – South Africa” gaan optree.

 

Ons gaan weer ons tradisionele Vlooimark aanbied en dit ook uitbrei met interessante uitstallings gedurende die dag. Indien u sou belangstel in ʼn stalletjie om items te verkoop, produkte uit te stal of u maatskappy te bemark kan u gerus vir Mev. De Jager by die skool kontak.

 

Die leerders kan weer heeldag baljaar op die reuse “Inflatables”. Die koste hieraan verbonde is R100 en sluit ook gratis toegang in. Ons het hierdie jaar ʼn inisiatief geloods waar leerders die bedrag met behulp van ʼn vorm kan afbetaal by hulle klasonderwysers. Let wel dat daar meer wateraktiwiteite gaan wees, so pak ʼn stel droë klere in!

 

Aan die einde van die dag sal die leerders en avontuurlustige ouers deelneem aan ʼn “Colourfest” in die arena. Leerders kan hulle kleurpoeier teen R6 ʼn pakkie aankoop by hulle klasonderwyser. Dit sal by die lekkergoedstalletjie by die karnaval afgehaal kan word op die dag.

 

Ons propvol verhoogprogram sal ook vanuit ʼn biertent geniet kan word.

 

Vir ons fiksheid bewustes sal daar die oggend ʼn Bergfietsresies en ʼn “Trail Run” aangebied word.

 

Dan is daar natuurlik ook ons nou al bekende “Hippo Run” waar ʼn kontantprys van R10 000 weggegee word. Hierdie jaar sal elke leerder nie ʼn boekie ontvang nie, maar slegs een boekie per gesin. Ons vra dat alle gesinne asseblief hierdie projek sal ondersteun.

 

As gevolg van die kwaliteit van die kunstenaars is ons hierdie jaar genoodsaak om R30 toegang per persoon te vra.

 

Ons hoop dat ons soos in die verlede op ons ouers kan staatmaak om hierdie projek te ondersteun. Ons vra dat ouers sal help om die dag te bemark en inligting rakende die dag op hulle sosiale media platforms sal deel.

 

Huttie Groete

LM Gray
