Swoosh: Offers a programme for all primary school netball players who wish to play netball all year round.  This is a unique opportunity to be coached enthusiastic and skilled coaches, make a lot of new friends and receive individual skills training. You can join the programme at any stage of the year and for any period of time. Holiday clinics are also available. Our aim is to bring back the “fun” in netball and equip players with netball skills, such as ball handling, passing, catching, hand eye coordination and goal shooting skills. We embrace netball as a culture and a way of healthy living, and introduce a gentle element of competition. Term 3 Swoosh starts at Grayston Prep, next Saturday, 17h of September 2016. If you would like to sign up your daughter or would like more information on Swoosh then please email

Parent Volunteers: Mrs Nicholson is still needing volunteers to assist with the weekly ‘puzzles and games’ sessions. Please let her know if you are able to assist.

Sun Protection: It seems that we are well on the way to another hot summer. Please make sure that the children bring their hats to school and that they apply sunblock each morning.

Grade R: Please revise the letters Aa to Qq with your children. We will be introducing Rr next week so please encourage children to bring objects or pictures that have this letter in their names.
