Term 3 – Newsletter 3

Dear Parents

Our almond tree is blossoming, with signs of approaching spring and yet we still need winter rains to appear.

On this note, I’d like to say a big “Thank you” to Catherine who came to talk to our pupils about the importance of saving water. Her passion in this regard has been transferred to all of us at Abeille Ruche, so I would like to encourage you to keep on saving water at home too.

Many thanks to all who attended the parent/teacher interviews last week. Our pupils will benefit from the school and home working together to further their education.

Our first Parent Committee meeting of the term will take place this evening at 18h00 at van der Spuy house.Please let Tamryn know if you have anything to add to the agenda: tvanzyl@abeilleruche.co.za


School will be closed on Wednesday for Women’s Day.

PHOTO DAY, Thursday

We are in the process of updating our prospectus. On Thursday, a photographer will visit our school to take photos in the classrooms and grounds. Please ensure that you child is dressed in the correct uniform. If you object to your child’s face appearing in our advertising, please let me know so that we can ensure that he/she is not present in the photos.


Thanks to continued sponsorship, an exciting project is underway at our school to establish a more visible library, as opposed to the classroom libraries of the past. We have appointed the following pupils to serve as librarians in our school:
Joshua, Grade 9
Asande & Raul, Grade 8
Tharesha, Grade 7
Jemima, Maliaka and Wasim, Grade 6

Congratulations to all of you. Librarian badges will be handed our during assembly on Friday. Ms Sharp will oversee the librarians.


Hearty congratulations to our small Grade 8 & 9 class for hosting the cake sale last week. They raised R450 towards our Parent Committee fund raising initiative.


Please let us have your reply slip by Thursday.
