Term 4 – Newsletter 9

Dear Parents

Greetings on this wet and beautiful morning. Hopefully the rain will hold off for our outings and Prize Giving scheduled for this week:

Tomorrow, Tuesday, our pupils will be visiting Nazareth House to sing Christmas Carols and distribute gifts to the elderly, along with your generous donations of toys and clothes, to the children. Pupils should wear their school uniforms on this outing. Parents are most welcome to join us and provide transport.

Fallen Angels animal rescue society will be visiting our school tomorrow and will receive your donations to their charity.

On Wednesday, our Grade 3 – 9 pupils will be walking in the Tygerberg Nature Reserve. The cost of this outing is R10. Pupils may wear civvies on Wednesday. Parents are most welcome to join us and provide transport.

On Thursday, we will practise for Prize Giving.

School will close at 13h15 from today until Thursday and Aftercare will run as normal.

On Friday school will close at 10h30, after Prize Giving practice. Aftercare will close at 17h30 on Friday and will reopen on 16th January.

On Friday evening, Foundation Phase Prize Giving will take place from 18h00 – 19h00. Please bring your own chair if available and a plate of sweet and a plate of savoury snacks to share after the Prize Giving.

Foundation Phase pupils (Grades 1 – 3) should arrive at school at 17h30 for the Prize Giving. Parents may view the art that will be on display while waiting for the event to start at 18h00.

Senior Phase pupils (Grades 4 – 9) should arrive at 19h00 for their Prize Giving, that will take place from 19h30 – 20h30. Please bring chairs if avaialble and a plate of savoury and a plate of sweet snacks to share after the event. Parents may view the art that will be on display while waiting for the event to commence at 19h30.

Pupils are to dress smartly for Prize Giving – boys in collar and tie and girls to wear pretty dresses.

I have attached the stationery and textbook lists. The Narnia set-books for next year are avaialble at the school at R20. Should you wish to purchase a Narnia book, please send R20 in an envelope marked with the book’s name and your child’s name.

Our textbook supplier will be on campus on 6th December. Their order form is attached, should you wish to purchase from them.

Reports will be sent out electronically, once our schedules have been approved by the WCED, by the end of the official WCED term.

Our school will close on Friday after Prize Giving and will reopen on Wednesday 16th January (not 14th as per my previous email). We have chosen to close a little early and to open a few days late so that our Christmas holiday period is extended a little. We will catch up the “missing” three days at the end of the first term, when our school will close on 20th March.

I’m looking forward to seeing all at Prize Giving on Friday.

Kind regards
