KARRI – all new learners will receive their unique individual Karri code when the first event is loaded later this week.
Statements will be emailed to all parents on Friday, 17 January 2020 – please peruse and advise the finance office if any queries arise.
Please remember that the full annual fees are due 1 January of each year – by virtue of the resolution passed at the budget meeting, by the parents, fees may be paid monthly over 10 months from 01 January to 01 November. Any variance to this should be made by arrangement with the finance office.
There are various school fee payment methods to ensure that we can maintain a cashless office: debit order, electronic funds transfer (EFT), EasyPay, debit or credit card.
If your full annual school fees are paid by 29 February of this year, you may take advantage of a 5% discount.
SAFETY & SECURITY

CARING & FAMILY NEWS
We send our condolences to the Bedford family on their recent bereavement.
Junior, the 2-year-old son of Rion Morris is currently recovering from a broken leg and facing the possibility of the insertion of pins in both his legs due to a bone disorder. Should you have any toys that you no longer require that may be used to amuse him and cheer his day these would be gratefully received. Any excess toys will be donated to Red Cross Children’s Hospital.
We congratulate Ms Johaniessen who became Mrs Titus over the holidays.
Ms Shortall also tied the knot on 2 January 2020.
A special welcome to the WGJS family also goes to Mr Matthew Dennis and his wife Tory, on the birth of their daughter on 13 January 2020.
