Please ensure that your child’s uniform and Physical Education clothes are complete and in good order for the new year. Each item of clothing must be clearly marked. Please refer to our school’s website www.edgemeadprimary.co.za with regards to uniform requirements.

SOS Camp:

As per the recent survey results, Grade 4 parents are overwhelmingly in favour of their children attending the SOS camp. We are currently negotiating dates and costs in order to accommodate as many of the suggestions made by the parents in the survey e.g. longer payment period and date change to later in the year. We will update you as soon as details have been finalised.

We are looking forward to a successful 2022 and wish you a safe and relaxing festive season with your children.

Yours sincerely,

Grade 5 Teachers
