Pre Prep Notices 24 March 2017

Grandparents’ Tea Party: This annual event is to be held on Wednesday, 12 April from 10:30 until 12:00 noon when school closes for the April holidays. Reply slips should have been returned by now so that final arrangements can be made.

Head of School: Please note that Mrs Ché McKay will be on camp with the Grade 7 learners for the period, 28 March to 31 March. Please direct any communication to Ms Lynda Johnson during this time.

Holiday Care: Holiday care will be closed on Friday, 28 April 2017.

Media Centre: We currently have several exciting displays in the library. Criminally Good Books and Books are better than gold. Also on display is the Human Rights Display as well as our Current Affairs Board. We also have a “thunk” board. This board asks questions to make your brain go ouch!

Thinking Week: The school will host a series of five, one-day workshops that, if taken together, provide an introduction to both the concept of the ‘Thinking School,’ and the essential elements within it. Each of the workshops also stands alone. A ‘Thinking School’ is one within which the further development of a student’s capacities as an independent, self-managing and reflective learner drive both teaching and pedagogy. Parents and teachers are invited to attend. Teresa Williams, an International Thinking Schools Facilitator, will be our guest speaker. For more information please email Nicole Liebenberg (nicolel@graystonprep.co.za) or Nicola Scriven (nicolas@graystonprep.co.za).
