Dear Parents

At the start of the new year school year, we would like to extend our best wishes for a prosperous 2014 to all our parents. We trust that you enjoyed the lengthy vacation with your children and it is our wish that everyone will approach the new school year with enthusiasm and determination. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued loyalty and co-operation in 2014.


A special word of welcome is extended to the new parents of our school. We believe and trust that you will join the Daniel Pienaar family quickly and that you will have very pleasant ties with Daniel Pienaar THS. If you have any uncertainties, then please contact us at any time.   The adaptation of your child to high school can only be optimally achieved if the parents and the teachers work in close co-operation and as partners. Rest assured that the teachers strive at all times to provide the best in the classroom as well at the extra mural activities.


Learners at Daniel Pienaar THS must be very committed towards academics.   Academic success is the basis of a learner’s successful school experience. Any achievement or success in extra mural activities can only enjoy full justification if a learner’s academic achievement is according to his/her potential.

Parents are therefore requested to support this view of the staff and to encourage and discipline their children accordingly.  Punctual completion and handing in of assignments and tasks, as well as dedication to all other forms of assessment is not negotiable. Learners who neglect their duty in this regard will forfeit their privilege of shortened school days during the examinations, and will have to stay at school for the full length of the school day.


Please take note that the new learning programmes applicable to all grades from the beginning of 2014 requires that school times of all high schools must enable 27½ hours teaching time per week. We therefore had to adapt our time roster. From Monday, 20 January the school will start at 07:20 and close at 13:40. Every school day will therefore be 15 minutes longer.

Parents are requested to make the necessary changes to transport arrangements and also to make every effort to enable their children to adhere punctually to the new times.


You are again reminded that the total fees for the year is R10 800 (Learning material and text books included) per child. The amount of R10 800 for 2014 must be paid in 11 instalments as follows:

Payment by instalments:

  • A first instalment of R1 000 was payable on the first school day to receive learning material, which include text books and/or duplicated modules.
  • Thereafter, ten instalments of R980 per month per learner for ten months (February to November).
  • Instalments are payable in advance and the first instalment for February must be paid at the end of January so that the last instalment for November, can be paid at the end of October.

Payment in lump sum:

  • R10 500 (R300 discount) as a lump sum for the whole year if paid before or on 7 February 2014.
    • Please send the correct amount to school. It is difficult for us to give change.


If parents enquire about school fee payments, receipts MUST be provided. Parents must therefore make sure that they receive receipts, and keep it in a safe place. Enquiries can be made at Mrs. Greeff at the finance office of the school.



The attached questionnaire (Annexure A) MUST be completed by ALL parents and sent back to school with your child before 31 January 2014.

If there are parents who are, for valid reasons, unable to pay the above-mentioned amounts, they must, before 7 February 2014, complete an application form for discount. The forms are available on request, at the general office at the school. The completed form must be handed in, personally by the parents, at the general office of the school.

INTERESTED PARENTS MUST COLLECT A FORM FROM THE FINANCE OFFICE AT THE SCHOOL. When the application form is handed in, a discount application register must be signed by the parent. All parents who hand in the application form and have signed the register, will receive a written answer on their application. Discount according to a sliding scale is available for deserving cases.

Please take note that the S.A. Schools Act determines that the gross income of both parents, also divorced parents, is taken into account to determine the amount payable when discount is calculated.


Parents of learners who are legally placed in their foster care, must please only fill in the first part of the application form and then attach the documentary proof of foster parents. You therefore do not have to fill in the part in connection with financial particulars.


The different items of Daniel Pienaar school- and sports clothes can only be acquired from the following places:


All sports clothes like the tracksuit, rugby jersey, Tiger T-shirt, maroon short pants, scarf, DP Golf shirt, white cricket pullover, DP cap, as well as the maroon school pullover, may only be bought from the shop at the school. Under no circumstances may the above-mentioned items be bought anywhere else because no other supplier has permission from the school to sell these items.


The shops in Uitenhage and Despatch only have permission to sell the formal school uniform like the short sleeved shirt, pants, tie, long socks, maroon long sleeve jersey, school dress, blazer and maroon sports bag. The maroon pull over may only be bought at the clothing shop at the school.

It is possible that, if a supplier does not have permission to sell a certain item, colours and designs are not according to the school’s requirements and then it will not be acceptable at school.

Parents are also not allowed to make their own versions of the different items of the school- and sport clothes.


No parent will be allowed to offload or pick up their children inside the school campus.

The high volume of traffic is a threat for the safety of our learners. Another reason is the fact that the roads inside the campus are not designed and built for public traffic and is deteriorating in the form of pot holes. The roads inside the campus must therefore be repaired and resealed at huge amounts of money.


The text books that your child have/will received are the property of the school and it is expected from learners to look after the books very well. All books must be handed back to the school at the end of the year in the best possible condition.


Please ensure that your child's school case is in a good condition. All learners must be in possession of an ordinary school case (dark in colour) with hard sides which can provide proper protection for their books. This will enable us to get maximum use of textbooks and also keep the expenses on new books as low as possible.


All textbooks must be covered with plastic. Writing books can be covered with paper or plastic or both if a learner so prefers.

All text books must be covered in the above manner by Monday, 20 January 2014.


We extend a friendly request to parents to use standard writing pads or A4 paper for all letters to the school. All letters from parents are filed for record purposes. It is however difficult to file letters on small pieces of paper.


All learners must have the necessary writing books as indicated in News Letter 4/2013 and the letter to all new learners, as well as the necessary writing utensils. Learners are not allowed to borrow items from other learners in the classroom. Parents are therefore requested to ensure that their children have the necessary stationery.

TAKE NOTE: All required stationery and drawing instruments are available at the Daniel Pienaar Shop at the school.


Please consult the attached list of dates for the first term 2014.


Please keep all circulars for future reference.

Kind regards

Geagte Ouers

Aan die begin van die nuwe jaar wil ons as personeel, vir al ons ouers 'n baie voorspoedige 2014 toewens. Ons vertrou dat u die vakansie saam met u kinders geniet het en dat ons saam, die nuwe skooljaar met mag en mening kan aanpak. By voorbaat dankie vir die volgehoue lojaliteit en ondersteuning in 2014.


'n Spesiale welkom aan al die nuwe ouers van ons skool. Ons glo en vertrou dat u baie gou sal inskakel by die Daniel Pienaar-familie en dat u 'n baie aangename verbintenis met HTS Daniel Pienaar sal hê. Reeds by hierdie geleentheid nooi ons vir u uit om met ons te skakel, indien daar iets is waaroor u onseker is. Die aanpassing van u kind in die hoërskool kan slegs optimaal wees, indien die vennootskap van ouer en onderwyser baie nou saamwerk. Wees verseker dat die personeel te alle tye daarna streef om die beste vir u kind in die klas asook by die buitemuurse aktiwiteite te bied.


Leerders aan die HTS Daniel Pienaar moet akademies baie toegewyd en -positief ingestel wees. Akademiese sukses is die basis van enige leerders se suksesvolle skoolervaring. Enige buitemuurse prestasie en sukses sal slegs volle regverdiging verdien, indien ‘n leerder se akademiese prestasie volgens sy/haar potensiaal is.

Ouers word derhalwe versoek om hierdie standpunt van die personeel van Daniel Pienaar te ondersteun en hulle kinders dienooreenkomstig aan te moedig en te dissiplineer. Stiptelike voltooiing en inhandiging van skoolwerkopdragte/take asook toewyding aan enige ander vorm van assessering is nie onderhandelbaar nie. Leerders wat hulle plig in hierdie verband versuim, sal hulle voorreg van verkorte skooldae tydens die eksamens verbeur, en vir die volle duur van die skooldag by die skool moet bly.


Neem asseblief kennis dat nuwe leerprogramme wat vanaf die begin van 2014 in alle grade van toepassing is, vereis dat alle skole se tydrooster vir 27½uur onderrigtyd voorsiening moet maak. Ons moes derhalwe ons tydrooster aanpas. Vanaf Maandag, 20 Januarie sal ons soggens om 07:20 begin en om 13:40 sluit. Elke skooldag sal dus 15 minute langer wees as in die verlede.

Ouers word versoek om die nodige aanpassings hiervolgens aan vervoerreëlings te maak. Doen asseblief moeite sodat u kind stiptelik by die nuwe tye hou.


Neem asseblief weereens kennis dat die totale skoolgeld vir die jaar, R10 800 (leermateriaal en handboeke ingesluit) per kind beloop. Die bedrag van R10 800 moet in 2014 in 11 paaiemente soos volg betaal word:

Betaling in paaiemente:

  • ‘n Eerste paaiement van R1 000 was reeds op die eerste skooldag betaalbaar. Hiervoor ontvang u kind leermateriaal, wat bestaan uit handboeke en/of modules.
  • Daarna, tien paaiemente van R980 per maand per kind vir tien maande (Februarie tot November).
  • Paaiemente moet vooruit betaal word. Die eerste van bogenoemde 10 paaiemente, vir Februarie, moet dus aan die einde van Januarie betaal word sodat die laaste paaiement vir November aan die einde van Oktober betaal word

Eenmalige betaling

  • R10 500 (R300 korting), eenmalige betaling, indien voor of op 7 Februarie 2014 betaal.
  • LET WEL: Sorg asseblief dat u die korrekte bedrag skool toe stuur. Dit is vir ons baie moeilik om

kleingeld te gee.            


Ouers wat navrae oor betalings by die skool doen, MOET kwitansies kan voorsien. Derhalwe moet ouers seker maak dat hulle kwitansies ontvang en dit veilig bewaar. Navrae moet by mev. Greeff by die finansies kantoor van die skool gedoen word.



Die aangehegte vraelys (Aanhangsel A) MOET deur alle ouers voltooi word en saam met u kind terug skool toe gestuur word teen 31 Januarie 2014. Indien daar ouers is wat a.g.v. verdienstelike redes nie in staat is om die bogenoemde skoolgeld te betaal nie, moet u asseblief voor 7 Februarie 2014 ‘n aansoekvorm vir afslag voltooi en dit persoonlik by die algemene kantoor van die skool inhandig.

VORMS MOET DEUR BELANGSTELLENDE OUERS BY DIE FINANSIESKANTOOR BY DIE SKOOL AANGEVRA WORD. Wanneer u die aansoekvorm inhandig moet u ook ‘n afslagaansoek-register teken. Almal wat aansoekvorms inhandig en die register geteken het, sal skriftelik in kennis gestel word van die uitslag van u aansoek. Afslag volgens ‘n glyskaal, is beskikbaar vir verdienstelike gevalle.

Neem kennis dat die S.A. Skolewet bepaal dat die bruto inkomste van beide ouers, ook geskeide ouers, in ag geneem word by die berekening van die bedrag betaalbaar by aansoek om afslag.


Ouers van leerders wat wetlik in hulle pleegsorg geplaas is, moet slegs die eerste deel van die aansoekvorm voltooi en dan dokumentêre bewys van pleegouerskap aanheg. U hoef dus nie die gedeelte oor u finansiële besonderhede te voltooi nie.


Die onderskeie items van Daniel Pienaar se skool- en sportklere kan slegs by die volgende plekke bekom word:


Alle sportklere, soos sweetpakke, rygbytruie, Tiere t-hemde, maroen kortbroek, serp, DP gholfhemp, wit krieketoortrektrui, DP pette asook die maroen oortrektrui, mag slegs by die klerewinkel in die skool aangekoop word. Onder geen omstandighede mag die genoemde items by enige ander plek gekoop word nie, omdat geen ander verskaffer toestemming van die skool het om enige van hierdie items te verkoop nie.


Die winkels in Uitenhage en Despatch het slegs toestemming om die formele skooldrag soos die kortmouhemp, broek, das, lang kouse, maroen langmoutrui, skoolrokke, baadjie en maroen sportsak te verkoop. Die maroen oortrektrui mag slegs by die skool se klerewinkel gekoop word.

Dit kan gebeur dat, omdat verskaffers nie toestemming het nie, kleure en snitte nie korrek is nie, en dan is sulke items nie by die skool aanvaarbaar nie.

Ouers word ook nie toegelaat om hulle eie weergawes van die onderskeie items te maak nie.


Ouers word nie toegelaat om leerders per motor binne die kampus op of af te laai nie.

Die druk verkeer hou groot gevaar in vir die veiligheid van ons leerders en ons moet voorkomend optree. Verder is die teeroppervlakke en –paaie binne die kampus besig om op verskeie plekke te verbrokkel a.g.v. die hoë motorverkeer. Die teerpaaie binne die kampus is ongelukkig nie ontwerp en gebou vir hoë volume openbare verkeer nie. Die resultaat is dat al die paaie binne die kampus vir baie groot bedrae geld, herstel moet word.


Die handboeke wat u kind ontvang is die eiendom van die skool en daarom word dit van leerders verwag om dit baie goed op te pas. Alle boeke moet aan die einde van die jaar, in die beste moontlike toestand aan die skool terugbesorg word.


Maak asseblief seker dat u kind in besit is van 'n gewone skool boektas (donkerkleurig) met harde sye wat goeie beskerming aan sy/haar boeke kan verleen. Dit sal ons in staat stel om maksimum gebruik van baie duur handboeke te kry, en die uitgawes op nuwe boeke so laag as moontlik te hou.


Handboeke MOET net met plastiek oorgetrek word. Skryfboeke moet met of papier of plastiek oorgetrek word. Skryfboeke kan ook met beide van laasgenoemde oorgetrek word, indien hy/sy dit so verkies. Alle boeke MOET op Maandag, 20 Januarie 2014 oorgetrek wees.


Ouers word vriendelik versoek om alle skriftelike kommunikasie met die skool op standaard skryfblokpapier of A4-blaaie te skryf. Alle briewe word vir rekorddoeleindes geliasseer. Dit is egter baie moeilik om briewe op klein stukkies papier te liasseer.


Alle leerders moet die nodige skryfbehoeftes aanskaf soos aangedui in Nuusbrief 4/2013 asook die brief wat aan alle nuwe leerders gestuur is. Leerders word nie toegelaat om items in die klas bymekaar te leen nie. Ouers word derhalwe versoek om seker te maak dat hulle kinders oor die nodige skryfbehoeftes beskik.

LET WEL: Al die nodige skryfbehoeftes en tekeninstrumente is vanaf die begin van 2014 ook in die Daniel Pienaar Winkel beskikbaar.


Raadpleeg asseblief die aangehegte datumlys vir die eerste kwartaal 2014.


Bewaar asseblief alle omsendbriewe vir moontlike verwysings in die toekoms.

Vriendelike groete

N.J. Claassen
