Hospitality and warmth
By Mr & Dr Zuma

“Good morning beloved teachers ”

“We hope this email finds you well. We are a new family coming from Pietermaritzburg who have just been at school for 2 days! Our boys are Grade RR, Grade 4 and Grade 11.”

“The hospitality and warmth we have received from the school is amazing! We really felt like VIPs in the school. The boys are really enjoying and already made friends. The follow ups from subject teachers by courtesy phone calls extends the care and empathy that the school provides. We really feel at home and our anxiety was calmed within 20 minutes of our arrival.”

“We can’t thank you enough, the teachers have shown us that this is their calling and have it in their hearts to care for the kids. We appreciate your kindness. ”

Kind regards,
Mr & Dr Zuma

Hi Katy,
I trust that this email finds you well!

During these uncertain times, here are a few things that I am certain of:

  • My son is always kept safe while at school
  • He has lost minimal learning time, as the homework has been added to the eportal virtually every day, since the start of the Covid19 pandemic
  • We, as parents, are kept well informed at all times
  • The teachers at Amberfield do an exceptional job of recording lessons, liaising with each other to ensure an even spread of workload and has clearly communicated all requirements at all times
  • Despite the risk to themselves and their own families, teachers and staff have been at school; long before students were asked to return

Have a wonderful weekend Katy and THANK YOU!!

Good Day Mam
I trust you are well.

I can't begin to explain the relief I feel following the new Memo that's been sent out!

My family was extremely anxious about sending our son back to school, given the current situation (even though we know the school is doing it's best to remain safe).

Your decision to continue with distance learning has just shown that Amberfield College is sensitive to the needs and fears of parents and students alike.

We also welcome the much-needed break for our children and teachers.

Thank you so very much for this (divine) intervention! We're so happy to know that our son attends a school that genuinely cares for his wellbeing.

Transparency at Amberfield College (COVID-19)
Thandi Shadrack

Hi Katy.
I hope you are well,

I would like to applaud you and the management of Amberfield College for the transparency on this matter and for always keeping us in the loop on new cases as well as steps that the school is taking.

I also appreciate the fact that your leadership also listens to the parents. Since the schools have started the teachers have been amazing, patient and extra helpful.I am working from home so Siya is doing school with me and I have seen a huge difference in his performance and on the positives of online schooling it has given me an opportunity to identify areas of development and assist him to overcome.

You have dedicated staff that is very passionate about their job, doing the best that they can under the circumstances. I pay my son's school fees with a smile because I see the hard work and dedication provided by each and every one of them (Grade6A).

Keep up the good work, we are taking note as parents and appreciate it very much.
