Newsletter May 2016



Holidays are over and the 2nd Term starts

We welcome back all the children who were on holiday. We hope you had a good rest and looking forward to the second term. 

Please note that the 1st morning ring begins at 8:30, if your child arrives late he/she may miss out on the activities planned for that time.  Unfortunately the teacher cannot catch up missed activities with the individual late children.


Baby Boom


Congratulation to the following families on the birth of their little ones:


Chetty family on the birth of baby boy Kian Heath on the 14 April. 

Kruger family on the birth of baby  girl Miecke on the 21 April  

Mamabolo family (Jeanet who works in the nursery) on the birth of her baby boy Katlego on the 26 April  


Marking of clothing


Now that the children are wearing more clothing due to winter,  please mark your child's clothing with their name to prevent lost property and clothing accidently going home with the wrong child.   It becomes very difficult for the teachers to remember what the children are wearing on a daily basis. 


Unfortunately clothing does get mixed up and if you do have any clothing or shoes that may not belong to your child please return it to your child's class teacher.   We also have 5 pairs of socks and 4 single socks needing a home.   Please check outside the office by the lost property if your child is missing any socks. 


Reptile show


The reptile show was enjoyed by all the children.   The aim of the reptile show is to educate the children to respect reptiles,  value them in their natural environment and especially to impart the fact that some reptiles can be very dangerous.   Photographs are available on request.     


Upcoming Events


Puppet Show


To co-inside with the theme Health and Hygiene we will be having a puppet show “Good Clean Fun” on Tuesday the 17 May by Ann Parker. 


Sports day on Saturday 4 June 9:00 to 11:30pm


Please take note of this date as it is a very fun filled event and the children look forward to participating in Sports Day.  Please inform your child’s class teacher whether you will be attending as a lot of planning is involved for this day.  The children who will be participating will receive certificates and a T-shirt.   





The teachers are in the process of preparing the children's progress report.  The formal reports will be given out at the end of June.  This will be followed by an individual parent's meeting to discuss your child's progress.   More info will follow in the June newsletter. 


School Closed


Please note that the school will be closed on Friday the 17 June followed by Thursday the 16 June Youth day which is a public holiday.


PLEASE BE ADVISED that we have been informed that Hand foot and mouth is the Midrand and  Pretoria area.   

Hand-foot-and-mouth disease Symptoms 

A fever is often the first sign of hand-foot-and-mouth disease, followed by a sore throat and sometimes a poor appetite and malaise. One or two days after the fever begins, painful sores may develop in the mouth or throat. A rash on the hands and feet and possibly on the buttocks can follow within one or two days.


Mother's day

We wish all our moms a wonderful Mother's Day on the 8 of May and hope you will be pampered and appreciated by your family.


Thought for the month


“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
