Thank you for the positive manner in which you managed your 2019 account.

The last instalment was payable on or before 7 November 2019.  Parents whose accounts are still in arrears on 30 November, or have not adhered to their arrangements will be handed over to our debt collectors on 3 December 2019.  This will add certain additional costs to your account.  I urgently request that you ensure that your account is up to date.


Attached to this circular please find the shop hours for the end of the year and the beginning of 2020.  These are extended hours compared to the normal trading hours.  Please do not leave it to the last minute as this will result in long queues.

HippoTique_2019 Holiday Trading Hours


We have a vacancy for a buildings and grounds manager at our pre-school in Victoria Road. (The old Bergsig).  We require the services of a handyman who can oversee the maintenance of our grounds and buildings on a daily basis.  We are looking for a skilled, practical male who has woodworking, plumbing, electrical skills, or a combination of these skills, which will enable him to do daily repairs and maintenance. A salary of R 7 000 pm will be paid.  This includes a 13th cheque.  Working hours are from 07:00 to 15:00.


I would like to remind you of our policy on having school bags with wheels.  All Grade One to Three learners are compelled to purchase the official maroon school bag which is available at the HippoTique.

Learners in Grade 5 to 7 who have bags with wheels, received a sticker earlier in the year to give them permission to use these cases until they are no longer useful.

No Grade 4 learner will be permitted to have a school case with wheels.  There is a new, sturdy, medically tested Totem bag available in the HippoTique at R1 330 or the normal black Huttenpark bag.

All other learners make use of the official school bag.

As the end of the year approaches, we look back in gratitude on the successes achieved in 2019 and in anticipation for the year that lies ahead.

To our Grade 7 learners who are furthering their studies in various high schools, we know that they will build on the foundation that was laid here at Huttenpark and will build on the values that were instilled.  We will be watching your progress with much interest.  Thank you for the contribution to our school over the years.

We wish all Hutties, not returning to our school in 2020, good luck in their new environments and schools.

On behalf of all the staff I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas.

Enjoy a well-deserved holiday with your families.


School opens on 15 January 2020 at 07:30.
