Pre-Prep Notices Friday, 14 July 2017

Head’s Coffee Morning: Parents are invited to join Mrs Ché McKay on Wednesday, 26 July at 07:15 in the school hall to hear about the changes to the awards policy for 2018 and the motivation behind this change. Please email for catering purposes should you wish to attend this function.

67 Minutes for Mandela: We encourage all Grayston families to support our Mandela Day drive. We ask that, leading up to the 18 July, you spend 67 minutes of your time clearing out your bookshelves and sending any books that you have read but no longer need to school. These books may be suitable for all ages (from toddlers to adult) and will be donated to the Kwena Basin Community Library, a trust that we have supported for many years. Books may be delivered to Reception. We will also be collecting new or well-loved blankets. Banablankets will be on sale in the pavilion and at the entrances to the school.
