Dear Prep Parents, Guardians and Caregivers
Welcome back to campus!
We are so looking forward to welcoming the children back to our school campus on Wednesday 12 January. We are delighted to welcome 46 new children to the Prep school and we wish them and their families everything of the best as they become part of the Oakhill family.
We also extend a warm welcome to Mrs Roxanne Torres who will be taking up the Grade 00 position in Little Oaks and we wish her and her family every joy in this new chapter of their lives. We are also delighted to welcome Ms Chandré Strydom (an old Oakhillian and former teaching intern) to the teaching staff as she takes up the maternity position in Grade 3. We congratulate her on the successful completion of her studies and wish her joy and success as she starts her career at Oakhill. Ms Indie Ntuntwana will be taking up the foundation phase intern position and we wish her everything of the best as she starts her journey with Oakhill and we are excited to have her as part of the team.
You will be receiving additional information from the relevant Academic Director or Phase Heads regarding the phase specific details and expectations when returning to school. Please read these letters for information concerning the start of term and the first day of school. For your convenience, I have attached links to the various phase specific communications as follows:

While we are delighted to be returning to campus and are once again reminded of the need to continue to act responsibly so that we can mitigate the threat that the Coronavirus still poses. It is, therefore, critically important that we remain vigilant in maintaining the safety measures that are required and that we act in accordance with the required protocols.
You are reminded that parents will not be permitted on campus unless invited for specific scheduled events such as the Meet and Greet functions and parent meetings which will be subject to COVID protocols. Visitors on campus are by appointment only and will need to be screened and report to the main reception in this case. We thank you for your patience and understanding and look forward to once again operating in a safe and happy environment that will bring out the very best in our children. For further information regarding the reporting of Covid cases, close contacts and isolation and quarantine periods required please follow this link to Covid Reminders.
Our school book shop is located adjacent to the clothing shop (below the admin building facing the car park). Should you need to visit this venue please note that there will be a limit to the number of people at any given time and that you will need to be screened before entry.
Wishing you and your children a happy and productive year ahead.
