Last evening, President Cyril Ramaphosa published the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic being declared a National Disaster. In accordance with this announcement, we will close Cowan House tomorrow, 17 March, at 14h00, for a slightly extended Easter break. Should it be necessary, our boarding establishment will remain open until the last girl/boy has been able to travel home.
On a broader scale, international travel to South Africa will be strictly controlled or even prohibited, and returning travellers will need to comply with additional restrictions. We request that you please keep updated with these communications on a national level in the coming weeks.
ARRANGEMENTS FOR COWAN HOUSE
Please continue to update us of your travel details and the changes to these plans.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation regarding the unprecedented emergency measures we have had to put into place at such short notice. As always, your support is greatly appreciated.
Mr Derek Braans (Headmaster)
