It’s Raining, It’s Pouring…

The old man might be snoring but the children certainly are not! Cape Town has been blessed with plenty of rain over the past few weeks for which we are very grateful. However, rainy days mean more time spent indoors. While the teachers are the first to admit that rainy days are a little lot louder than we’re used to,[Read More…]

Smiling Sunbirds

Smiling Sunbirds

What a start to the year it has been! On day one, the little Sunbirds came to school with nervous smiles on their faces, not entirely sure what to expect.  In just two weeks, those same Sunbirds are haring through the gate each morning, carrying out daily routines without reminders from their teachers, smiling from ear to ear, ready to[Read More…]

The thought of ‘big school’ brings smiley grins to little faces and tears to their teachers who now have to try fathom the thought of their little learners spreading their wings.

On Friday , the Grade Rs had a rather exciting yet unusual start to their day. Things began a little differently as we started our morning routine with the ‘end of our day’, thus proceeding our annual tradition known as ‘Backwards Day’.
