This Adventure Club outing was an absolute winner. We had 18 learners ranging from Grade R to Grade 8. There were two moms and two dads to help with the Junior and Pre-Preppers, and two staff members present. The learners thoroughly enjoyed the activities, and the adults all had a great time. The beautiful starlit sky was the ideal backdrop to the night walk and campfire.
Special thanks to Simone Baber for the lasagne supper and all the other catering essentials.
Stephen Lungu Visit
Our assembly this morning took the form of a visit by Africa Enterprise, some dance and drama by their “Foxfire” team, and a stirring talk by Stephen Lungu where he addressed Grades 4 to 12 for 20 minutes.
This man has addressed Heads of State and football stadiums full of people. We are honoured that he should spend time at our school. Many of our Senior Prep learners have read Stephen’s biography, From a Street Kid written by Tonia Cope Bowley and were eager to meet him and to hear his story first hand.
Tuesday saw this exciting passage in the Senior Prep mid-morning programme. I am amazed that learners were willing to pay money to toss an egg over ever-increasing distances until it broke, in some instances getting egg all over themselves. We have lovely kids in this school.
IEB Core Skills Tests
Our Grade Sixes and Nines wrote the IEB Core Skills Benchmarking Tests today. We will get the results in October and be able to compare the results of our teaching and learning with national averages. We look forward to the end result.
