Newsletter #4 – 8 February 2019 – Juniors

Following on from last week’s message about how to be a great friend, Miss Bloem delighted us with a wonderful story in assembly about how we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.

We might think that this person won’t be a good friend purely by the looks of them, but they could turn out to be the perfect friend to help you out in situations.

Let’s be mindful of our peers’ talents and what they have to offer as a person and not judge them by their appearances. [read more]

Weekly Newsletter 18 January 2019 – Seniors

It was a very busy holiday as we readied ourselves for the opening of the new campus. Moving all the furniture and fittings into the new classrooms, laying grass to stop the sand from blowing into every open space and ensuring that the site looked respectable and presentable for everyone when the school opened.

I am happy to say that it was well worth every ounce of energy spent to witness and have the thrilling experience of seeing the first learners and teachers when they entered through the doors for the first time on Monday and saw this beautiful space that had been created for them. [read more...]

Dear Parents,

This week in assembly we listened to a very good story that taught us an important lesson about telling the truth. It is closely related to ‘the boy who cried wolf.’ We learned that we should never tell lies or make up stories to prevent getting into trouble. Rather tell the truth if you are guilty of something, because lying might get you into bigger trouble in the end. Remember, honesty is the best policy.

Weekly newsletter 09 Nov – Seniors

Dear Parents,

We would like to congratulate Ronan Janeiro (Grade 8) who participated in a swimming Gala at Freda Barnard in Oudtshoorn from 2 – 4 Nov 2018. He received two silver medals for IM and Free-style.

Personal development is much like a rubber band. It can stretch us, it can propel us to distances we could not imagine, or it can snap back and bite us, leaving us limp and tongue tied.

Have you ever tried to take on a new habit? Have you ever said to yourself,”I’m going to go on a new fitness regime, and I’m going to buy this Ab machine and workout every day for 3 months until I have 6 pack abs”. After a week or two you no longer use it, and you must put up with its hurtful evil glares as you pass by it in the living room, until one day in a KFC induced frenzy of guilt and procrastination you are forced to do the only sane thing left to do… to put it away in the closet or the garage.

Have you ever tried to stretch yourself and do something a bit crazy? Have you ever tried to learn a new language, or simply create an Impossible List?
