Welcome Back to School – Term 3 2015

Back to school third term 2015

Welcome back from what we hope was a restful and enjoyable break with your respective families. Holidays are a wonderful time to share different experiences and rest and recuperate with our children and families.
The campus has remained a hive of activity with the library construction continuing through the break, the renovation of the Senior Prep toilets, and the set-up for a specific area for the Junior Prep Aftercare. The projects will continue throughout the term and will have limited impact on teaching and learning.
The Spring term is always a busy term with many different school events packed into the next three months. These include the Parents Association Camp Out, Wednesday Athletics meeting (including field events), Study Skills (Grade 5-7), iPad Rollout for 2016, and many more events.
As the Grade 7 enter their final term of primary school, we ask that parents discuss the wonderful opportunities that they have had and encourage them to make this their best term of Preparatory School. Often they see the need to go out with a “bang” and their “bang” often causes disappointment and anxiety for all involved. Please reinforce the need to abide by the school code of conduct and ensure that they perform to the best of their ability in the last term.
Staff News : We welcome a number of new staff to the school, Theresa Thompson join the staff as the Kids Club (aftercare) manager, Bondi Ngubane joins the IT support team, and Jo Atter joins the staff as the remedial therapist in the ASU.
Sport:  The Athletics teams will be managed by Lauren Heidt, with the support of the PE staff. The squad published during the holidays, will have a final trials session on Friday 11 September starting at 13:45. We expect the trials to finish by 15:00. This will be a track trial only with children running the hurdles, 100, 150, 200, 600 and 1200, as well as relays. All children on the squad list are required on Friday afternoon. Should your child wish to challenge for the athletics squad, please forward their name to Lauren (laurenh@graystonprep.co.za). The team list for the first meeting (16 September 2015 at Grayston) will be published after the trials sessions on Friday afternoon.
