What is Interchange?

What is Interchange?

“Are we going to all the classes today?” “Which class are we going to next?” “What is this thing where the children go to all the classes?!” These are common questions from the mouths of (Sunbird) babes!

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 end is near…Let’s make the MOST of it!

The end is near…Let’s make the MOST of it!

The excitement is mounting for our little Sunbirdies, who will soon leave the nest to tackle Grade 1. 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.

A MAGICAL day out!

A MAGICAL day out!

The last field trip of the year saw our Sunbirdies whisked off to the College of Magic for a MAGICAL day out! Their eyes were full of wonder as they got to meet “real life” magician Professor Baylor and take a tour around the enchanted building. Our children were left spellbound as they witnessed the art of illusion, practiced their juggling,[Read More…]

Batty and Backwards on Backwards Day

Batty and Backwards on Backwards Day

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’. Everything we would normally do as a grade would now be from ‘finish to start’ instead of ‘start[Read More…]

This is what DREAMS are made of!

Last week saw our Sunbirdies take to the stage for what must be one of the most anticipated events in our pre-school calendar – the Grade R assembly! After several weeks of learning songs, rehearsing actions, memorising lines, practicing lead-in and lead-out drills and planning outfits, our precious pre-schoolers were ready to SHINE… and shine they most certainly did!  [Read More…]
