WHERE CAN I FIND LOST PROPERTY?

There is no substitute for clearly naming the items and, more importantly, to speak to your child to take care of their possessions.

Every item of clothing must be MARKED with a permanent marker. All items of clothing handed in at Student Reception will be recorded and sent to the Grade Heads’ class. This will be handed out each morning once logged, to track repeat offenders.

Unmarked clothing is washed and sold at the SVPS Second Hand Store – some amazing, brand new bargains!

Teach your child the value of their possessions and how to check that they have everything before they head off home.

HOW DO YOU COMMUNICATE WITH PARENTS?

Please contact pta@sunvalleygroup.co.za if you have any questions or if you would like to get involved.

Each class has a class and grade rep to assist with communication.
