From the Headmistress’ Desk
The mid-term break, at the end of next week, heralds the middle of the academic year. If the speed of time is the measure of fun, we are having fun by the truckload at school.
This newsletter brings news of some of the recent activity in which our children have been involved: scholarship examinations, the Horizon Maths Challenge, the interhouse quiz, our choir performance at the Summit music festival and the Flash Mob at Kyalami Corner, a tennis festival, our drama production and the PTF Mountain Bike & Trail Run.
In addition, our soccer and netball teams had wonderful performances at the Grayston Festival this last weekend. Our U12 boys won the gold medal after excellent games against Kyalami, Grayston, Redhill, Dainfern and HeronBridge. The U11 and U12 netball teams won silver medals. Well done to all the players, and their coaches, on these fine performances.
A big thank you to those parents who responded to the IQAA survey around school improvement. The figures below show the response rate:
- 58% of Gr 000 – 0 parents
- 52% of Gr 1 – 3 parents
- 60% of Gr 4 – 7 parents
IQAA will be collating the responses and we will use these results to decide on focus areas for the remainder of the process.
As this is the last newsletter before our week’s break at mid-term, I wish you all a happy and relaxing holiday with the children. I would also like to wish our Muslim families a Blessed Eid as the fast is broken on 15 June.
Mrs N. Hillen
