We have reached that time of the term again where the learners have to prepare themselves for the assessment week. They all have been working so hard throughout the term. We can be proud of each of them for doing their best in class. Next week they will have to show their teachers and parents that the hard work paid off. Let’s give them all the support and motivation they need, so they can also feel proud of themselves. Good luck to everyone for the upcoming assessments!
The real-life story of Colonel Harland Sanders who was disappointed umpteen times in his life and still
made his dream come true late in his life is really inspiring. He is a seventh grade dropped out who tried
many ventures in life but tasted bitter every time. He started selling chicken at his age of 40 but his
dream of a restaurant was turned down many times due to conflicts and wars. Later he attempted to
franchise his restaurant. His recipe got rejected 1,009 times before the final approval. And soon the
secret recipe, “Kentucky Fried Chicken” became a huge hit worldwide. KFC was expanded globally and
the company was sold for 2 million dollars and his face is still celebrated in the logos.
Moral: Have you stopped your attempts to a venture just because you were rejected or failed a few
times? Can you even accept a failure of 1009 times? This story inspires everyone to try hard and
believe in yourself until you see success despite how many times you have failed. J. Neethling

TEDDY BEAR DRIVE FOR RED CROSS HOSPITAL
We will be collecting new teddy bears (small to medium) to donate to the Children’s Hospital Trust at the
Red Cross Hospital. All teddy bears will be collected in Miss Dos Reis’s class (Grade 3) if they wish to
donate one to a child in need. We request that the tags/labels of the teddy bears please remain on the
teddy bear when they are brought to school.
