A note from our Principal: Mr. D Swart

This was not an easy year by any measure but now that we stand at the end of it, I can see how all the puzzle pieces fitted together to give us the final picture! Thank you to all the role players who once again worked incredibly hard to ensure that our learners received the best throughout the academic year. [read more]

The assessments and exams are done and we are nearing the end of 2019. We would like to thank all the parents for supporting their children throughout the test period. It was a tough few weeks getting through all the work and studying. The learners did their best to make their parents, teachers and themselves proud. Their hard work and dedication will pay off. For now, they should give their bodies and minds a good rest. Great job to all of the learners! [read more]

In order to encourage good habits in our children, we need to make use of praise. Praising our children is important in the behaviour goals that we set as parents.

The more negative our relationship with our children, the more likely they are to rebel and misbehave. The more positive our relationship with our children, the more likely they are to co-operate. Praise assists in creating a positive, healthy relationship with our children.

We tend to give our children attention or rush to their side more often when they are doing something that they shouldn't do. How many times have we been there when our children are fighting during play, as opposed to mentioning how quietly or nicely they have been playing together?

We tend to tell them what they shouldn't be doing more often than praising them when they are doing what they should be doing. [read more]

Low self-esteem is unfortunately a self-fulfilling prophecy. The worse you feel about who you are and what you do, the less motivation you'll have to do what it takes to build your self-esteem. From there it's easy to spiral down into a cycle of negative thinking which will keep you stuck in untrue and damaging beliefs. Getting unstuck from this cycle is a process, and it won't happen overnight, but there are things you can do to get it started and keep it moving. Here are a few powerful ways to improve your self-esteem quickly in order to start feeling more confident. [read more]

Heritage Day is around the corner which is the time of year we celebrate who we are and where we come from. An important part of the culture we grow up in are the morals and values we learn from our elders. Children cannot be expected to develop good morals and values without a solid foundation from home. Children learn by watching, not by listening. Showing your children how to be moral through your actions and not your words will teach them to be moral people for the rest of their lives.

NEWS FROM THE GRADE 5 CLASS

The Grade 5's have been hard at work last week with studying and tests. They have spent many long hours making sure that they achieve good results. During the test week, the Grade 5's have been working on a Natural Sciences and Technology practical - building their very own working car. Through the last few weeks of the term, wheels and axles were the topic of NST, and so the Grade 5's got to put their knowledge to the test. There were some very impressive designs and fun was had by all. [read more]

As we get ready to enjoy a well-deserved break there are other families who will not see the light in their lives for some time to come. It is with great sadness that I share the news about 2 learners in our district that were shot and killed last night while in their home.

They were both just innocent little souls that got caught up in something they had no control over. Both these children were from the same family and school - Grade 1 and Grade 3. Our prayers are with that family and every other family that is grieving the loss of a child today.

In the same message a Principal narrowly missed flying bullets as he was unlocking the gate to the school premises this morning. These are the people who are responsible for keeping our children safe and creating an environment in which they can grow and develop, yet they are the targets of the senseless mayhem currently going on. We need to put a stop to this! [more]
