My Gunsteling Strand…

My Gunsteling Strand…

The Grade 5’s had to let their creative juices flow. They had to tell us about their favourite beach. The excitement was rife immediately, they had to find interesting information about their favourite beach in Cape Town, and some of them were amazed by the facts they found!                 The catch was that[Read More…]

E-Colours in Grade 4

E-Colours in Grade 4

This term our Grade 4s received their E-Colour bands and were so excited to wear them. It is a great tool to use when figuring out how to support their friends and peers. Lockdown and COVID – 19 regulations enforced social distancing which meant that we couldn’t necessarily give our friends a hug to cheer them up if they were[Read More…]

2020 – a crazy year, but we are getting used to the new normal.

Farewell Matrics 2020

Farewell Matrics 2020

After an extremely challenging and insanely weird year, the Matrics have MADE IT! They have entertained us all by performing very accurate skits of their teachers… let’s just say if they pay as much attention to their lessons as they do to us, then they’ve got no worries for their final exams. We wish them all the best and know[Read More…]

Exams 2020

This little light of mine…please shine! Gr 8 grapple with electrical circuits.

This little light of mine…please shine! Gr 8 grapple with electrical circuits.

The Grade 8’s were set the task of designing a basic electrical circuit. They had to construct it in a creative way. We had campfires and fireplaces that “lit” up, house lights that turned on, “idea” bulbs above bunnies heads (?!) Everything the Grade 8’s could imagine! We have been learning about the different components of a basic electrical circuit[Read More…]
