A Message from our PTA Chair | Lost Property and the Redhill Shop

The PTA offers a valuable service to the school through both Lost Property and the Redhill shop (offering selected new items and a range of second hand uniform items and second-hand books). All this works through parents who volunteer their time in these services. We would like to take this opportunity to provide you with some important information in this regard as the year ends.

 

Lost Property

Numerous lost property items have been collected from various points across the school throughout the year. Lost property that is clearly labelled is sent back to the child’s class as it is found or collected. There continues to be a large volume of unclaimed and unnamed items.  As the year ends and is our usual practice the following will be the process for collecting and clearing out the lost property for 2017:

  • Lost property will be open for collections the last week of term being Monday 27 - Thursday 30 November 2017. This will be open from 7:00 to 14:30 pm during these 4 days. 
  • On Friday 1 December, everything that has not been claimed will be cleared. Items that are left will be split between the Redhill shop and some items will be donated to charity.

 

Please assist: We are always looking for new parents who can assist with this thankless but valuable task.  If you are willing to assist with lost property (sorting is done in the mornings) in 2018, please can you contact. Please email Pearl - Obehimordi@yahoo.com - should you be interested.

 

Redhill Shop

As the year ends and you clear out the 2017 uniforms that are now too small, we would like to ask you to consider any donations of school uniforms, shoes, and sports equipment and books (high school specifically). Donations of any kind are very appreciated, and nothing gets discarded, what can't be used goes to charity and we work with the school in this regard. This can be dropped off Monday to Thursday 7:00 – 8:00 at the Redhill Shop.

 

Useful information about the second-hand shop:

  • The Shop will be open on the 11 Jan 2018 and 12 Jan 2018 from 7-9am, to assist parents in the new year should they wish to purchase any school items.
  • Normal trading hours are 7:00 - 8:00 Monday to Thursday, and Monday and Wednesday 13:30 - 15:00 during term time.
  • We do offer some new school uniform items which include blue school caps (available for R100), and new blue PE skorts (high school), R175 and some other sports related items. We will also be stocking house shirts and a few other items in the new year.
