Senior Prep Notices 15 July 2016

DSC_0468Grade 4 Language Choice: The Grade 4 children will have to select their first additional language at the end of Grade 4 for their final three years of Preparatory school. Mrs Ché McKay will have an informal question and answer session on Tuesday, 19 July at 07:30 in the pavilion. She will answer questions and concerns and give general advice based on previous experience of Grayston children. Please click here for the Language Choice Reply Slip. Parents are asked to please have their subject choice preference communicated to the school by no later than Thursday, 4 August 2016.

Library Books: To facilitate our stock-take, no library books will be issued after 13 July. Please return any library books that your children have at home by no later than Monday, 18 July 2016.  

67 Minutes for Mandela: We encourage all Grayston families to support our Mandela Day drive. We ask that, leading up to 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. These blankets are made by an organisation in Alexandra Township, by unemployed women. There will be different sizes available and you were welcome to purchase a blanket and donate it towards our Diepsloot initiative. The Grayston community collected over 700 blankets last year and were able to supply 5 schools in Dieplsoot with much needed warmth. 

Weekly Prayer Meeting: Takes place every Friday morning from 7:00 to 7:30 in the Library. Anyone is welcome to join.

Outreach Committee: Please start collecting plastic bottle tops and bread tags in your home.  The bottle tops can be any size and any colour. There will be a “post box” in the pavilion, playgrounds, tuck shop and other walkways. (Can you find them?) Let’s see how many we can collect and give back to people in need.

Public Holiday: Wednesday 3rd August has been declared a public holiday due to the elections. Please note that school will be closed.

Grade 6 & 7 Awards: The Grade 6 & 7 Academic and Ad Futura awards will be presented on Friday 5 August 2016 at 11h00 during the term’s final assembly.

Sports Awards Assembly: Will take place on Wednesday, 20 July 2016 during assembly.
