This policy will apply to the official school days (as issued by the Gauteng Department of Education) and times as listed in extramural timetable and tour/trip/outing letters. With regard to sporting/cultural activities, this policy will be applicable from the commencement date and time and up until the completion date and time of the particular sporting/cultural event.
