Senior Prep Notices 26 February 2016


Topsy Turvy Day: On Monday, 29 February 2016 we are going to turn things upside down. Teachers, you are going to come dressed as school children…so get your outfits ready! Children, you are going to come dressed as moms, dads or teachers. So go through your parents wardrobe – what would they wear to work?

Cost: R7.00. Let’s make this a day to remember!

Emma Sadlier Presentation: We are very excited to be hosting Emma Sadlier, a media law consultant and speaker, on the 3 March 2016 and the 4 March 2016. On the evening of the 3 March 2016 she will address our parent body, and then address the Grade 5, Grade 6 and Grade 7 children on the morning of the 4 March 2016. Emma presents the material in an enthusiastic and engaging way, and will have your rapt attention.

By way of background, Emma’s areas of expertise include all aspects of print and electronic media law, with a particular focus on defamation, privacy and social media law.

She is an admitted attorney and has a BA LLB and an LLM in Information Technology, Media and Communications Law. She worked in the media litigation department of Webber Wentzel for five years before going on her own to specialise in social media law in April 2013. Much of her work involves creating social media strategies and policies for corporates and schools, drafting social media agency agreements and providing training and workshops on social media law. She also teaches media law to journalists and lawyers and lectures personal reputation management on various MBA programmes.

Grayston Biathle School Challenge: The annual Biathle will take place on the Thursday before Easter.  The first event will be at 11.00 and the Grade 7 children will finish off the morning at 12.00. Please see the rules and the entry form attached. Children must be able to swim – although there will be lifeguards, noodles, boards and belts available. Entry forms together with the R70.00 must be sent to the class teacher.

Outreach: Grayston collected over 1000 litres of water for Operation Hydrate. Many thanks to all the families that contributed to this worthy cause! Thank you so much for those of you that have donated pencil cases.  Please continue to bring them to school.

Cake and Candy Sale: The Cake and Candy will take place at break on the 24 March 2016. The Grade 7 children will be making delicious goodies to sell on the day.  Please remember to bring your money and support them.  Bringing smaller denominations helps make the process go quicker.
