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 the learner’s NAME and SURNAME.

All items of clothing handed in at Student Reception will be recorded and returned to the learner should it be labelled. Any unlabelled clothing will be loaded onto the Lost Property Google Drive.

If you are looking for a specific item, please email lostproperty@sunvalleygroup.co.za.

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

HOW DOES SVPS COMMUNICATE WITH PARENTS?

We use the d6 Connect App for most of our communication. You can download the app from the Google Play store or Apple App Store.

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

Letters are sent out in the learner’s Take Home Diary.

Additionally parents can email the class teacher or hello@sunvalleygroup.co.za.
