News for the third term, 2014
We have been very busy at this Little School this holiday. We have erected the shell of a school hall, and work has begun on the remaining four classrooms.
With the rainy weather about to begin, the school hall will be a very important asset for the school. It can be used almost immediately for assemblies and indoor sports, but we need to get the floor concreted.
Donations from anyone would be greatly appreciated. Donations can be in the shape of bags of cement, loads of sand or stone, and cash, of course. All donations will be used absolutely for the hall.
As soon as the floor is concreted we can start on a stage and dressing rooms for the drama group. Do you remember the wonderful show we put on last year: “Joseph and his Dream Coat”?
We have grassed a second playing field. The grass on the football field is coming on, but now we need the rain. Our next project is to concrete a netball field in front of the Grade 7 block.
The four new classrooms will enable us to have a double stream throughout the school, which will mean smaller classes per teacher – essential for good academic standards.
On the academic side, we were asked to send three pupils to take part in the National Maths Competition. Two children made it to the finals.
Congratulations to Mandiso Dlamini and Siyanda Shongwe, both in Grade 7.
