Umalusi: Umalusi is the Council for Quality Assurance in General and Further Education and Training. The school completed a desktop review for Umalusi during the month of March. The evaluation of the desktop submission will occur on Tuesday 22 September. We welcome the five evaluators onto the campus on Tuesday to complete the evaluation of the school. The evaluation will include a review of policies, procedures, teaching and learning and resources. The evaluation will involve class visits, interviews of staff and learners and inspection of facilities.

Movie Night and Camp Out: The Parents Association will be hosting a movie night and Camp Out on Saturday 10 October. The day will consist of the traditional camp out on the top field and a big screen movie. The movie for the evening is “Inside Out.” We request that parents bring a picnic type dinner and enjoy the evening on the field, enjoying the movie with their family and friends, and then enjoy an evening of camping on the field. The cost for the movie night and camp out is R100 per family including popcorn and tickets for the evening will go on sale in reception from Monday. Please note that there will be no braais or gas fires, as these require a fire marshall on the site. Parking will be available on the bottom fields from 14:30 on the day and no vehicles will be allowed on the top field after 15:30. We look forward to enjoying the afternoon and evening together.

Shoe Box Collections: The Grade 7 continue to collect for the shoe boxes at the end of the year. Please support the drive by supplying the various items that each grade has been allocated. The gifts make a substantial difference to children’s lives, especially those less fortunate than those at Grayston.

Cultural Day: Next Wednesday we will celebrate our national heritage prior to Heritage Day on 24 September. The children will be involved in a number of celebratory activities during the day to make them aware of the wonders of our ‘rainbow nation’.

Long weekend: Do enjoy the long weekend next week – Thursday 24 to Sunday 27 September.

Go for Green: Remember that we will be supporting our national rugby team in its bid to bring the World Cup home. Children should wear their normal uniforms but replace the school shirt with a green shirt every Friday … hopefully until we reach the final!

Grade Three Help: The Grade Three children are reminded to collect the following recyclable items for a number of projects that we will be undertaking – plastic milk bottles, cardboard juice or milk cartons, plastic bottles of all sizes, bottle lids, egg cartons, plastic shopping bags, used pantyhose or stockings. Please wash all these items and send them to school by Monday, 21 September if you have not already done so.

EcoMobility Festival will be taking place during the month of October: The festival is intended to introduce and encourage a culture of using public transport around Sandton and to reduce traffic congestion. Please click here for more information on the EcoMobility World festival 2015.
