New School Uniforms for The Little School.
We have designed new school uniforms to celebrate the new premises.
The girls will wear red dresses in Tisheshwe print. They can wear them without a blouse in hot weather or with a white blouse or shirt, or, red or white polar neck sweaters under the dresses in winter. The tracksuits are plain red and so are the knitted jerseys. They will have black school shoes and white socks or tights.
The boys will wear white overshirts with Tisheshwe trim on the sleeves and pockets. Also white or red polar neck sweaters, red tracksuits and red knitted jerseys over navy blue trousers. Black school shoes and grey school socks.
The new uniforms can be bought at the school at the most reasonable price possible.
In August The Little School’s drama group, called Emantjwele Children’s Theatre, put on a really wonderful show based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dream Coat”, at the Swaziland Theatre Club. It was a great success and we decided that it deserved another showing. So, we asked Jiggs Thorne at House on Fire if we could perform it at his wonderful venue. He very kindly gave us the venue for free and we did another very good show. Hearing about it, the Mbabane Club asked us to perform again the following evening. We had wonderful comments of praise from everyone. Especial praise must go to Teacher Simolline, who taught the children the songs – without a single musical instrument, except the voice – and to Frances Farrell, who designed and made the lovely costumes. We have called the drama group The Emantjwele Children’s Theatre, because we don’t want to just be classed as a school drama group, but we really want to promote Children’s Theatre in Swaziland. We discovered wonderful talent among the children who joined the drama group, and they grew in power and talent during the performances.
In September we had a very enjoyable athletics day down at The Prince of Wales sports ground. Children from Grades 0 to 7 took part and great fun was had by all.
