With exam and assessments quickly approaching us, we might start feeling anxious and stressed. These are completely normal feelings to have when something so important is happening in our lives, but I want you to try your best and stay calm. You know the amount of work and time you putinto your academics during Term 2. We all know how the famous saying goes “Hard work pays off.” Remember to never give up because all of your hard work will pay off soon, and then you’ll be glad you didn’t quit! Good luck with the assessments – I know you can! – Miss Booysens
Grade 3 News:
The Grade 3 learners worked very hard to ensure that the Africa Day was a success. They learnt about the country Mali, and gained interesting knowledge. When I speak about the Grade 3 learners, I speak about them with absolute pride in my heart. They amaze me with their wonderful support towards their friends. We are like a small family in this class. I cannot wait to see them grow more and more. I am extremely proud of you! Please see our beautiful sculpture that the Grade 3 class made, in order to support Nicela Naudé.
