EXTRAMURAL ACTIVITIES

As communicated in previous newsletters, we have cautiously introduced non-contact extra mural activities. I take this opportunity to encourage the learners with the support of parents to engage in the extramural activities offered at school. Our non-contact activities include Table -tennis, netball (drills only), athletics, chess, dance. The learners are requested to make contact with Mr. De Waal to register and commit themselves to the program. The after-school program has also resumed under the DCAS banner. Here too we wish to encourage our learners who are in close proximity to the school to engage in the after-school program. Undertaken by the appointed DCAS coach

LEARNER PROJECTS

During the course of the remaining academic year, we will be sharing the beautiful projects that we completed by the grades. We share with you the projects forwarded by our grade 2 classes. The grade 2 learners read the story of Elma the elephant as part of the home language subject. At the completion of the reading activity, the learners were required to design the elephant. Below are some of the wonderful designs of Elma the elephant, which Im sure you will agree is absolutely stunning. To the parents who so diligently assisted, great job!

LEARNER ATTENDANCE

Parents, find below the attendance data for the week of 6 September 2021 to 10  September 2021. Over the past few weeks, learner attendance data has not been flattering. At times more than 100 learners for the group attending being absent. It must be reiterated that the best and safest place for learners remains the school. Given the rigorous health protocols followed at school, we have been able to mitigate potential infection in a context where we observe the antithesis in our community, namely learners not observing covid protocols. The current data strongly suggests that persons are being infected in their communities due to non-adherence to covid protocols. We highly recommend that learners are continually encouraged to come to school when they are required to be present. The challenge of absenteeism must and can only be rectified by parents and the guardians of the learners.

Thought for the day

“If you want to grow and develop yourself, embrace failure. If you want to become the best at what you do, you have got to be willing to fail, again and again. And then finally, one day, you fail your way to greatness.“ Les Brown
