2019 is fast approaching the end and already we have so many plans for the new year. Please just stand still for a moment and celebrate the good experiences we had, no matter how small they might seem to us. Then take the time to understand and to deal with the not so great things that you might have experienced. Remember that you are the author of this life story and you can change the plot at any time that you decide you would like a different storyline. We cannot however start a new chapter or story without ending off the old one properly! [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]

Newsletter #37 – 08 November 2019 – Juniors

This week started with a buzz. Everyone is still on cloud nine following South Africa’s win over England in the Rugby World Cup final. Our team showed us that there is strength within unity.

As the assessment and exam period is fast approaching it is important for us as a school, as parents and as learners to stand in unity in order to ensure that our learners achieve the goals they have set for themselves. Please support your child during this time. Learners should eat breakfast every morning and make sure to get at least 8 hours sleep. Please make sure that your child has the stationary they need and they will not be allowed to borrow from other children. [read more]

A little boy wanted to meet God.  He knew it would take a while to get to where God lived, so he packed some potato chips and soft drinks into a bag and started his journey. About three blocks away, he met an old man who was sitting in the park, just staring at some pigeons.  The boy sat down next to him and opened his bag.  He was about to take a drink from his bottle when he noticed that the old man looked hungry, so he offered him some chips which he gratefully accepted with a smile.
