Grandparents special/person’s day was a huge success. Thank you to the very special people who took time out of their busy lives to be with their children. I would also like to thank the class moms for offering their assistance in making the day run smoothly.
Our guests had the opportunity to see what the children get up to during the school day. The visiting gogos and papas followed the children into the classrooms, created a little artwork, engaged in games and generally enjoyed the busyness of the children. The children entertained their special guests with songs and demonstrated their developing gross motor skills with a lively Tangonastix routine. Afterwards the children enjoy a picnic on the lawns with their grandparents/special persons. There were enough grandparent to go around for those children whose special persons could not make it, these kiddies were also spoilt and nurtured.
This fun day was the first time we had a mini market, all the different offering fof food and creativity.
We had had Irish dancers where little Zara was brave enough to dance with them.
All photographs were taken by Janine.
Zoo on Wheels came to the school all the way from Limpopo! We had a huge variety of animals to show the children from the very small hedgehog and chinchilla, to the very large alpaca, donkey, and Christmas the turkey. The children all got a turn to see and touch the animals up close which is a wonderful way to establish respect and love for animals at an early age

This time the children were given an opportunity to watch and learn about different exotic and indigenous snakes and lizards such as Bearded Dragons, Bosco Monitor , Bull Snake, California King Snake, Columbian Boa Constrictor and others. The instructor managed to speak to the children on their level and being very informative on an adult level as well, therefore it was educational and entertaining for all.

As we have many nationalities and cultures, Kyalami Ridge had a dress up day on the 31 May to embrace and learn about our differences and to have fun. The children all arrived at school dressed up in their traditional wear or an outfit as close as possible to their culture. Our parents also each brought a small portion of traditional food for the children to share with their classmates. This also served as a lovely South African farewell to some of our American children returning home.
Today was just about silly fun where the children came to school dressed as pirates
Today the children were given coins and and made their own wallets to take shopping. Our teachers each set up a stall and 'sold' their wares to the children. Teacher Mary Anne had her Ice Cream Palour, Teacher Carla had her bakery, Teacher Shani had The Sweet Shop, and Teacher Taryn had her Smoothie Bar. The children loved this game of exchange and some even tried to buy with their 'plastic'.
