December Newsletter - KRCP

YEAR END  - December 2017

Another year has gone by.    I would like to thank all the parents for their support, assistance and goodwill you have offered us this past year and especially the children and parents, who have been part of Kyalami Ridge for many years.  

It is hard to say goodbye to the children that we are so fond of, especially the children who have been with us for many years.  However, it is also time to warmly embrace and welcome the new children who will be joining Kyalami Ridge in the new year.  We hope that the new children will also have a long and happy, prosperous journey at Kyalami Ridge.  

I would like to thank my teachers and teacher's assistances for everything they have done for the school and the children this year.  I really appreciate their dedication towards their jobs and the children in their care.  We have had a very busy and fun filled year.     

The planning for 2018 is done and we have made some exciting new changes for 2018.  We will be introducing arts, music and culture with a difference next year.   We are also updating our website to make it more user friendly.  

I would like to introduce Jane Barker who is going to be assisting the teachers with arts and crafts/woodwork and the music/movement programme.
