About Our Whatsapp Groups

Dear Parents

We are currently setting up our Whatsapp groups for 2022. As part of our commitment to improving our communication with you, we use these groups to communicate important information throughout the year.

We would like to encourage you to join your child’s Grade Whatsapp groups to ensure that you are up-to-date with everything that happens at our school.

NOTE: If you have more than one child in the school, please complete a form for every grade, e.g. if you have a child in Grade 2 and 7, kindly complete both a Grade 2 and Grade 7 form.

If more than one parent needs to be added to a specific group, please indicate the information of both parents in the form.

We look forward to another successful year with you!

If you have a personal concern / question, please reach out to the educator / staff member privately via email. All email addresses of staff can be found by visiting: www.saxonwoldprimary.co.za/staff Please give our teaching staff ample time to respond to your query as they are teaching during the day and often have training / meetings in the afternoons.
