SCHOOL OPENING 2021

Dear Veritas Families
Welcome back to the 2021 year.
We had all hoped that 2021 would start off on a more positive note but unfortunately we are returning during a spike in the COVID pandemic.
Veritas College had intended reopening the school for the 2021 academic year on Wednesday, 13 January 2021. But due to the circumstances in which we find ourselves, regarding the huge increase in COVID cases, we have received communication from ISASA (Independent Schools of Southern Africa) who have advised independent schools to delay their reopening to Monday, 18 January 2021. This will give families, who have been traveling to various destinations outside of Gauteng, during the holidays, the opportunity to use this time as a quarantine period before the 18th of January 2021.
We are also awaiting further announcements by the President on the 15th of January which may even result in further adjustments to the school day. We will continue to keep all of our parents up to date with necessary arrangements and procedures that will follow.
As indicated in our last Newsletter of 2020, our learners are required to return to school in full summer school uniform. The Uniform Shop will continue to operate as follows:
