Cricket

On Tuesday the Senior Preparatory cricketers took on a teachers’ team in a 10 over match.  The rule was that once you had scored 20 runs you had to retire.  Three of the teachers retired and two of the boys, and therein lay the difference with the teachers emerging ahead.

Festival of Drama, Art and Music

“In The Jungle” by Grade R
The Black Five Dance Group
Mrs Leonard “Only Hope”
Mirriam Mpete “Alcoholics Anonymous”
Max Stebbing Class of 2013
Grade 9 – “Stimela”

On Wednesday evening we held our Drama, Art and Music evening. The addition of drama is a new innovation and enables those who got a prestige in the Eisteddfod to showcase their talent alongside the traditional music and art.

Please join me in congratulating Mrs Juliet Calcott and her many helpers on the staging of such a successful evening.  The preparation was meticulous, the performers excellent, and the art, both that of the learners and that of the adult exhibitors, was superb.

Senior Preparatory Entrepreneurs’ Day

The Senior Preparatory Phase held their entrepreneurs’ day today.  There were, as expected, a number of attractions, but the pony rides pictured leftwere a “hit.”

Carla and Lyandi brought these friendly animals to school today to offer pony rides to the learners.  Their stall was kept busy throughout. 

PTA Report Back Meeting

Our PTA will be holding a meeting next week on Friday (break up day) at 10h00 in the Hall.  Since at least one parent from each family will be here at that time to pick up children, this will be the time that will be most convenient for all.

The PTA wish to inform parents of their efforts this year and of the exciting events to come.  Please be there to support these hard-working people who do so much for the School.
