Dear Parents

Please take note of the following:

SPS OPEN AIR MOVIE NIGHT: This has fast grown to be a night that many people are looking forward to. Please take note of the following:

  • The movie ”PADDINGTON 2” will be shown and will start promptly at 6pm.
  • There will be a jumping castle available from 5pm to 6pm (“pay and play”).
  • Parking will be available at the High School, Allen Street and Galway Street. Car guards will be on duty at these areas. It is not compulsory; however, a kind gesture to our car guards will be appreciated.
  • The following gates will be used for entry/exit :
  • Inter-leading gate from the High School to the Primary School (opens at 5pm and closes at 6pm)
  • Gate 3- Galway (opens at 5pm and closes at 6pm)
  • Gate 1-Allen ( opens at 5pm and closes at 6:30pm). This gate is opened for an extended 30 minutes for any late-comers.
  • All gates will only re-open after the completion of the movie ( security reasons).
  • Tickets will be sold at the gates.
  • You may bring your picnic blankets or chairs.
  • An appeal is made for glass items not to be brought into school, as we have a rugby/netball festival the following day.
  • Food/Drink: the following will be sold on the day. Please support our tuck-shop as this is our fund-raising initiative.
  • Cold drinks, hot chocolate, tea, coffee, popcorn, boerewors rolls, chicken hotdogs, chips and sweets.
  • You may also bring your own food/drinks, should you wish to.

I would like to thank, in advance, the co-ordinating committee, my entire staff and parents, for your support towards this wonderful initiative, and hope you have a fun evening.
