Covid Protocols

Please be extra cautious as we enter the school holidays and keep to the Covid protocols in order to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.  Thank you to Dr Claudia Gray for the following reminders:

  • If any direct family member or any other direct contact goes for a Covid test, your daughter must be kept at home until the result of the Covid test is known.
  • Self quarantining is 10 days from the time there was last contact with a positive person. If during this time, you become symptomatic and test positive, you have to start a further 10 days isolation from the time of onset of the symptoms.
  • Self-isolation is 10 days from the onset of symptoms (test positive) or, if asymptomatic, 10 days from a positive test result. You may return to school/work without re-testing as long as the person is symptom-free.
  • The best time to test (for the most accurate result) after being exposed to a positive person is 7/8 days from the last contact.
  • The PCR test has a longer turnaround time (1/2 days) but is best as it is sensitive to asymptomatic people as well as those with symptoms.
  • The Rapid Test is cheaper and you can get results as quickly as 15 minutes. This is a better test for symptomatic people, but it is less sensitive in younger children.

Warm and Woolly Civvies Day

Our termly civvies day will be held on Wednesday 12 June. For a fee of R20, girls may come dressed to school in their Warm and Woolly Winter outfits. All proceeds go towards the support staff end of year hampers. Please use the snapscan alongside for cashless payment. Thank you for your support.
