Term 3 – Newsletter 4

Dear Parents

The new week has begun with two teachers absent, two sick but at school and many coughs and splutters among the pupils too. I do hope that all our parents are managing to stay well at this time.

I’m in the classroom today, which means I’m trying to get my newsletter out, while teaching, so will have to find moments to snatch throughout the day.

PARENT COMMITTEE REPORT BACK

Our Parent Committee met on Monday and discussed the following:

  • Donations for Fallen Angels (pet rescue) and Boucher House (orphanage) may be sent to the school.
  • Grade 1 cake sale: 6 September. Grade 1 parents please supply cake for us to sell to the rest of the school.
  • A suggestion is that parents could donate a book to the school on their child’s birthday, a sticker will be placed in the book to commemorate the birthday. If you would like to participate in this, please send along a book on your child’s birthday.
  • Next meeting 4 September

GRADE 7 – 9 ASSESSMENT PRESENTATIONS

These assessments will start on 11th September. Pupils in Grades 7 – 9 have received the tasks that they need to prepare for. Parents can assist by discussing the tasks and ensuring that their children are working on these daily.

CASUAL DAY
Casual Day will be held on Friday 1st September and we will be supporting the Molenbeeck School for children with disabilities again this year. Stickers cost R10. I have pledged our school to sell 100 stickers, so please buy your sticker from us.

Please send R10 in an envelope, clearly marked with your child’s name and “Casual Day”.

Happy Tummy donations will also be collected as usual on that Friday.

Enjoy your week.
