ACHIEVEMENTS AND REFLECTION TERM 1

  • The visit of `Small Paul`,  who spoke and motivated all the grade 7`s of 2021 was noteworthy this term. His presence was indeed needed as learners returned in a atmosphere of uncertainty. His reminder that the creator wants the best for all us was well received by all in attendance.
  • Our teachers are to be applauded for  brilliantly managing the return of learners on the 15 February 2021. Without their continued commitment to the school, we would not be able to be functional at any level of the organisation..
  • Support for the collecting list was measured, we were able to raise an acceptable amount of finances for the school.
  • Our learners were wonderfully spoilt receiving marshmallows over the Easter period, a kind donation of hot-dogs and popcorn as part of learner wellness. This is evidence of the commitment of staff to positively impact the lives of all learners at school.
  • The feeding scheme was able to continue feeding vulnerable learners as well as community members at large. the ladies in the kitchen have done a sterling job this term and continue to ensure that vulnerable learners are attended to.
  • The continued outreach all our learners are recipients of including Hot-dog day, popcorn day, book character day, library day continues to add value to the learning experience of each and every learner at Delta Primary. As our focus remains as always that every learner must be provided with top quality cost effective education.

LEARNER WELLNESS

During the course of last week, staff members prepared popcorn for the learners at Delta. This was initiative as part of a long term programme, to address the mental wellness of the learners. Teachers are still managing the effects of the post lock-down fallout, as we detect that many learners are visibly withdrawn and struggle on a daily basis to orientate themselves. We also wish to appeal to all our parents to assist teachers by speaking and interacting with their children. More importantly, to assist their children in completion of homework and assigned tasks. Many learners are struggling with reading and basic mathematical skills which is the foundation for academic competence in further grades. Regular practice would ease these challenges which create learning barriers. Teachers are attempting to provide remediation while the learners are at school, however this must be supported at home.

COLLECTING LISTS

We say thank-you to all the learners/parents who have made a voluntary donation on the collecting list. We are cognisant of the challenging economic climate and therefore do not trivialize your financial contributions. Our financials reveal that far too many learners have not made an attempt to make a contribution. Delta Primary is a no-fee school and subsidised by the state. For the school to engage in special projects and to enable the school to sustain SGB posts going forward, we will require a positive stream of financial contributions throughout the academic year. Your positive financial contribution enables to add value to each child`s academic experience.

LEARNER AND TEACHER ASSISTANTS

The management of SGB of Delta primary thank the teacher and general assistants for their service rendered over the past 5 months and wish each assistant everything of the best going forward

LEARNER SAFETY

We wish to make a special appeal to all our learners and parents to ensure that our boys and girls remain safe during the 1-week vacation. Learners must inform their parents and guardians as to their whereabouts at all times. Learners making their way to the beach or near water activities are also reminded to take extra precautions as accidents around water happen so quickly.

Thought for the day

That`s been one of my simple mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder that complex. You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But its worth it in the end. Because once you get there, you can move mountains` – Steve Jobs
