2016 Grade 0 Graduation

On Friday 25th November 2016 we had our end of year concert for the little ones. It ended with a small ceremony for the children that graduated from Grade 0.

Our children showed not only their singing and poetry skills but also they did a small karate demonstration with their Sensei Wandile. Their performance was outstanding and we were so proud of them.

After the ceremony and concert we hosted a small party for the little ones that was most enjoyable.

Well done to all our graduates!

On Friday, 18 November, we celebrated the Grade 7s final day at The Little School. The event took place in the school hall. The Grade 6s, led by Teacher Edlyn, hosted the party. Teacher Edlyn was assisted in her endeavours by Madame Theodette, who cooked some delicious dishes, Teachers Margaret, Babra, Nester, Thabsile and Nicholas who braaied the meat. Our secretary, Aunty Khanyisile, was there to lend a hand wherever needed. Miss Maria, Mrs Morais, and Aunty Khanyisile, together with Teacher Edlyn, were able to find the appropriate Events Coordinator; all contributed towards making this a successful and enjoyable afternoon. Mrs Farrell provided invaluable advice and other assistance.

The guests of the party, the Grade 7s, looked beautiful (the girls) and handsome(the boys)! They had a wonderful time! Apart from the great music supplied by the DJ, there were prizes and speeches.

PRIZES:

The Grade 7 teachers, Teacher Simoline and Mr Motsi, addressed the students, encouraging them with some very pertinent and wise words.

Thank you, everyone mentioned above, and the remaining staff, who all contributed in making this a successful and fun event.

We wish our Grade 7s every success as they enter a new phase of life, High School!

News from The Little School for the Third Term 2014

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.
