CELEBRATING LIBRARY WEEK
On Thursday the 25 of March 2021, a group of our learners attended a library information session as part of the Retreat Library Awareness Programme. Our learners did a sterling job as ambassadors for the school. The learners were accompanied by Mrs. N August our school librarian.
RETURN OF LIBRARY BOOKS AND TEXTBOOKS
We are encouraging all our learners to ensure that all library books which are still in your possession be returned as a matter of urgency. All our library books have been accumulated at huge financial cost to the school. Parents, please assist in this process.
DELTA FOOD GARDEN
Our food garden project is coming along nicely and we were able to harvest some of the produce. The recent picture is evidence of the awesome job done by our in-house gardener Mr Fred Petersen. Representatives of the Feeding Scheme have visited the site on two occasions and have expressed their satisfaction with the development of the garden project. It is part of our long term plan to ensure that the food garden is sustainable and that the project has financial longevity as one of the project outcomes.
VIOLENCE IN THE COMMUNITY
The continued violence in the community has been a singular narrative for the past few weeks and it has also negatively impacted our daily operations at school. In this regard I wish to recommend the following course of action in the event of gang violence. Should the gang violence erupt while learners are on their way to school, we recommend parents exercise their discretion and ensure learner safety first.
We wish all our parents and learners a peaceful passion tide over the next few days as we enter into the Easter-break.
Thought for the day
