My daughter’s property is lost – how can I find it?

There is no substitute for clearly naming the items and, more importantly, to speak to your daughter to take care of her possessions. Theft is not the issue at WGJS – however, ‘borrowing’ is commonplace and it’s not unusual to find a variety of other children’s clothes in your wash. If you are in search of an item please check the lost and found trunk in the Wendy Condie quad or alternatively please email Ms. Emkie at emkie@wgjs.co.za
