Senior Prep Notices 03 March 2017

Biathle 17 March 2017: It is that time of the year again and everyone is looking forward to this event. The Biathle is open to children from Grade 1 – 7 and each year this race proves to be a success. There are two more events that have been added into the programme to allow more children to compete. These events are non-competitive, but the learners will still receive a goodie bag and medal. If you have any queries related to this event, please feel free to contact Nicola Scriven (nicolas@graystonprep.co.za).

Camp Forms: The Senior Prep camp forms are now due. Please make sure you return these forms to the class teacher on or before Tuesday, 7 March 2017.  

World Book Day: Grayston celebrated World Book Day yesterday. Some very excited Dr Seuss character ‘look-alikes’ arrived at school and we commend the parents on their enthusiasm and creativity – the costumes were amazing! The Hooked on Books show was fantastic as usual and it was wonderful to see our children sharing storytime with their older Grayston counterparts when the Senior Prep children took time out to read to them.

Barefoot day: Thank you to everyone who donated to this wonderful cause. We have collected hundreds of shoes that will definitely make a difference this winter.

Margot Keyes Talk: The Grade 6 and Grade 7 children will enjoy a presentation by Margot Keyes on Wednesday, 15 March 2017.

Co-Curricular: The new co-curricular will be published on Monday, 6 March 2017.

Lunch hour concert: Please come and join us on Friday, 24 March at 12:45 for our lunch hour concert. The concert will consist musical performances by the Senior Prep children and it will be held on Martha’s Lawn. We also have two staff members who will perform a surprise song for the audience. A picnic hamper can be ordered from Tammy (email: tammym@graystonprep.co.za) in the Tuckshop. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Social Cohesion Update: Following on from our surveys which were conducted at the start of the term we would now like to invite parents to attend a focus group to discuss the outcomes of the survey results. Two focus groups will take place with the first on Tuesday 14 March from 6pm – 7:30pm and the second on Wednesday 15 March from 6pm – 7:30pm. Both focus groups will take place in the school staff room. Parents interested in attending are asked to please email Nicole Liebenberg at social_cohesion@graystonprep.co.za and state the date of the focus group they would like to participate in.

Technology Training Session for Parents: Thank you to the parents who attended either of the sessions. For those who could not make it or would like to refer back to some of the content that was covered in the session, please follow the links below to view the slides.
