October News Letter

The Emantjwele Children’s Theatre is about to stage their new production “Annie” at The Mbabane Theatre Club on the 2nd 3rd and 4th of November.

The Emantjwele Children’s Theatre is The Little School’s drama club.

The children who join the drama club are children from Grades 1 to 7 who are really keen on theatre and who have aspirations to be great actors one day. Many of them are already talented actors. Productions staged by this club – The Emantjwele Children’s Theatre – have previously produced “Oliver”, 

“The Jungle Book”,  “Joseph’s Coat” , “The Wizard of Oz” and now “Annie”.

The Little School hopes that you will all come to see the production of “Annie`’ at the Mbabane Theatre Club . There will be three performances – Wednesday and Thursday evenings on the 2nd and 3rd of November, and Friday afternoon on the 4th of November. Tickets can be be bought at the school, via your children, or through the office number on the poster.

These beautiful murals are painted on the walls of our Grade 0 classroom.

They help to make the classroom such a happy and exciting place.


Grade 4A had two reasons to celebrate this week:

On Saturday the Judo club had national trials in our school hall and Sisandza Magongo excelled and was awarded with a yellow belt;

And Awandze Mbatha celebrated turning ten years of age – How wonderful! Double figures !

I arrived in Eswatini in July of 2014.

I have a passion for teaching the young child and qualified at the University of Pretoria in 2001 with a B Primarty Degree. I have since taught at various pre-primary and primary schools, covering ages 3 to 9, as well as special educational needs. I enjoy finding new ways to make the learning experience more fun and therefore more effective.
