However, parents/guardians are still free to contact the school with regards to any challenges they face in dealing with EQUALS, or to raise any special requests.

Principal’s Newsletter: which was sent out last week contains a lot of very important information. If you have not yet read it, please make time to do so. Herewith a few reminders of some of the issues raised in this communication:

Day Scholar Uniform Labelling – In our ongoing endeavour to ensure consistent standards and reduction in lost property, it is a requirement that all uniform items have an individual’s name embroidered on them. This exercise started with the boarders, and now continues with day scholars. As such, day scholars are required to use the same person that did the embroidery for the boarders to ensure standards are maintained.  We are appealing that our stakeholders visit Mr Mugano in the basement area at Gweru Main Post Office on 7th Street to have your child’s item embroidered at a cost of RTGS$0.80 per item. Pupils are encouraged to return for second term with their clothes correctly embroidered.

Clothes Pegs for Boarders Please ensure that your child returns with labelled clothes pegs as pupils launder their own casual clothes over the weekends. 

Sports Attire Second term is always our busiest sporting term. As pupils return to school, please ensure that pupils return with the correct attire. Sports on offer in second term for boys: rugby, hockey, soccer (select), volleyball (select); and for girls: hockey, netball, basketball, soccer (select), volleyball (select).
