FOUNDATION PHASE SPELLING BEE
The foundation phase teachers organised the Annual Delta Primary internal spelling Bee. As of last year our teachers have implemented a set spelling lists which are given to our learners at the beginning of the term. The instruction is to memorise the words in preparation for a spelling bee evaluation. Classes of the same grade compete against one another in order to determine who the top spelling class is. The advantage of this style of learning is that the activity is inclusive as learners are able to help each other with the spelling of the words. In the same token it also addresses two values, namely, teamwork and excellence.
DISPLAY OF LEARNERS WORK
As part of a decision to celebrate the talent of learners we will be posting pictures of learner projects over a two week period. Our learners together with their parents put a tremendous amount of effort into projects which are part of the learners school based assessment (SBA).
WIZO CAPE TOWN BRANCH VISIT TO DELTA PRIMARY
On Wednesday the 17 May 2023, the volunteers of WIZO together with the Union of Jewish Women of Cape Town visited the school and presented our school librarian a top up of much needed reading books. Parents are aware that one of the goals is to ensure that our learners have access to high quality reading material which is managed via our school library. As an extra bonus and sweet surprise the volunteers of the Union of Jewish Women also presented the school with a box of colourful beanies which will be distributed to our little ones.
The school also took ownership of a water pump that was kindly donated by Gill and Dave Raphael. It is our intention to install the water pump to be used as part of the irrigation system to utilise ground water to nourish our food garden.
PREPARATIONS FOR EXAMINATIONS 7 JUNE 2023
It is extremely important that all learners make the necessary sacrifice and prepare well for the forthcoming examinations. As of the 7th of June 2023 all learners will be dismissed at 13:00 until the end of the examination period We once again appeal to all parents and transport providers to ensure that all necessary arrangements are made to ensure that all learners are collected within 10 minutes after the end of the day. You are requested to please monitor the following:
- Learners must study for the examination if they wish to experience a positive outcome after the examination.
- Learners must get to bed early to ensure that they are alert during the examination.
- Learners must have a good breakfast and lunch pack to fuel them for the day.
- Learners must have writing equipment for the day.
- Learners must reduce time spent on cell phones and electronic devices in order to focus while studying.
- Learners must be at school everyday of the examinations
Parents, we have a role to play in this regard. We are confident that you will take all the necessary actions in this regard .
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
“Some things are believed because they are demonstrably true. But many other things are believed simply because they have been asserted repeatedly—and repetition has been accepted as a substitute for evidence.”- Thomas Sowell
