I mentioned at the Orientation that parents need to ensure that they send their children to learn. Preparing them for that includes ensuring that they have had sufficient breakfast.
We all know how our concentration fades as we get low in energy throughout the day. Sleep is also an important factor, teens are notorious at having erratic sleeping patterns but establishing a routine will help them.
Please take attendance seriously. We need you to support us in having your children at school to learn, and on time. Attendance is directly linked to success and this is greatly affected when a child even drops to 95% (that is just 4.5 days for us).
