Pre Prep Notices 16 September 2016


Movie Night and Camp Out: The Parents Association will be hosting a movie night and Camp Out on Saturday 15 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 “Finding Dory”. We request that parents bring a picnic type meal and enjoy the evening watching the movie on the field with their family and friends, and then a night of camping should they wish to. Camping is entirely voluntary. The cost for the movie night and camp out is R30 per person. Tickets for the evening will go on sale at the tuckshop from Monday, 19 September 2016. Please note that no braais or gas fires will be allowed. Boerewors rolls, popcorn and soft drinks will be on sale as part of the Grade 7 fundraising effort. Parking for those who are camping will be available on the bottom fields from 14:30 on the day. Campers are welcome to unpack theirs vehicles on the top field before moving to the designated parking area on the bottom field. No vehicles will be allowed on the top field after 15:30. We look forward to enjoying the afternoon and evening together.

Themes: The themes of the Land of Nursery Rhymes (Grade R), Children of South Africa (Grade 00) and Water and the Weather (Grade 000) will continue next week.

Cookie Day: Our bakers for Monday, 19 September are Alyssa Naicker, Kiana Naidoo, Ndalo Bekwa, Arthur Ray and Kyan Rajput.

Swimming: Due to the heat pumps being broken, PE swimming will resume next week. Drew’s private lessons will carry on as normal in the afternoons.

The children have begun swimming again during PE lessons and should bring their costumes, caps and towels to school as follows –

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 Ss next week so please encourage children to bring objects or pictures that have this letter in their names.

Heritage Day: To celebrate Heritage Day, we invite the Grade R children to wear something ‘South African’ to school on Friday, 23 September. The Grade 00 children will be celebrating a day of South African food and cultural dress on Thursday, 22 September – please refer to the email that you received for details.

Lost Property: We will be displaying the hordes of lost property on the green table in the Pre Prep playground on Friday, 23 September.
