Parents Information

Parent-to-School Communication

Please note that no parent may see an educator without making an appointment. Parents who “pop in” for a chat can disrupt classroom time, which is not fair to the educator or the other learners in the class.

If there is anything that you would like to discuss, please follow the route indicated below and only go “higher” up the ladder should you require additional information or assistance:

  1. The class Educator

  2. The Head of department

  3. The Principal

There are several ways to make an appointment as well as to communicate with the staff:


The school switchboard numbers are 0145925613


Emails may be sent directly to staff, and your class educator will provide you with their email address. However, please do NOT send any urgent messages in this manner in case there is a delay on the server.

School-to-Parent Communication

Communication is fundamental to effective partnership with our parents and the success of learners. We firmly believe in creating a school environment that will improve the performance of learners as well as the involvement of parents. Da Silva Academy Primary will connect with the parents using the following channels:

Newsletters via email

This is a vital tool for the school to be able to communicate news, sports results, events and other important information to parents. The newsletter will be emailed to parents. Please make sure that you have submitted the correct email address to the school.

SMS/ Whtsapp messages

In the case of time-sensitive communications (for example, extramural cancellations due to weather, etc) the school will occasionally send SMS/Whtsapp messages to the parents. Please ensure that the school has your correct mobile number to facilitate this crucial form of communication.
