All our children enjoyed a bus ride to the museum where they enjoyed a lesson on animal coats and were able to touch specimens and participate actively in the lesson. A very worthwhile outing with a great deal to discuss back at school.
Our kitchen extensions are at last complete and to celebrate (and afford some new kitchen goodies!) we had a celebratory 'kitchen tea' on Thursday 28th February and our learners brought 'silver balls' (really R1, R2 and R5 coins) to stick onto our giant cupcake and then iced and decorated their own cupcakes for snack time. The amazing total of R920 was raised. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Our recycling bins and igloo are now being visited regularly and we are pleased that parents are supporting our children in this recycling project - Thank you! Instilling this practice now will hopefully make it a lifelong habit!
Our children have been busily collecting breadtags and we have been impressed by their perserverance as well as the quantity they have brought in!
While they had been told that the tags were melted to make new things, like coat hangers, and the money from the sold tags was used to buy wheelchairs for children who are unable to walk or run, it became more real when Hanlie van der Merwe and her daughter came to school to collect the tags and thank the children as well as encourage them to carry on collecting.
They told the children 2 x 2l coke bottles hold about a Kg of tags and they need about 250Kg to sell enough for a wheelchair. We now plan to see how many 2l bottles we can fill! Please help!
