Pre Prep Notices 15 January 2016

IMG_1427WelcomeWelcome to the new school year and an especially warm welcome to all the new pupils and staff. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all the Grayston pupils and their families a happy and successful 2016. We trust that you will soon feel part of the Grayston community and enjoy the warmth and family atmosphere which permeates the school.

On a staffing note, Charlotte Higgins joins the Pre Prep as an intern teacher. Candice Kinnear joins the Junior Prep as a Grade 2 class teacher and Mariette Fourie teaching Afrikaans. Andrea Anderson joins the Senior Prep teaching Maths and Life Orientation and Felix Vilakazi joins our PE department.

We look forward to the contribution that these new staff members will bring to Grayston Prep.

Information Evening: We extend a cordial invitation to all parents to attend the Pre Prep Information Evening on Tuesday, 19 January. Refreshments will be served in the John Sounes Hall from 17:45 and there will be a selection of books available should you wish to purchase a ‘birthday book’ for your child to donate to the school library. At 18:30 we will adjourn to the classrooms where you will be able to meet the teachers, find out more about what is in store for you and the children this year and become familiar with the school procedures.

Themes: Our theme for the first couple of weeks is Welcome to Grayston. During this time the children learn about their new environment, allowing them to settle in comfortably.

Labelling: To avoid frustration and unnecessary expense, we request that you label every possession and item of clothing that your child brings/wears to school.

Volunteers: We rely on the kind assistance of moms and dads to assist us with our weekly ‘puzzles and games’ and library sessions in Grade R. Rosters will be displayed in the classrooms and we ask Grade R parents to volunteer their services.

Golf Champs Junior Academy: If you would like your son or daughter to play golf this term, please contact Dave Lewis on 082 731 8648 or  Golf lessons are on Monday afternoons from 1pm.

Playball Demonstration: There will be a ‘playball’ demonstration on Monday, 18 January at 12:00 noon for parents interested in enrolling their children in this activity.
