AS in the past, this year we entered art pieces from classes falling under different categories for the Royal Show Art Competition. Congratulations to the following pupils who received a prize:

Celeste Maré first, Adisha­ Munessar first, Maryam Sayed third and Sarah Barber third.

We have now completed our cross-country running for the term and are proud of our top runners:

Nthando Ngcobo, Nassi Dede, Sean Meter, Alexander and Pieter van Rooyen, Emma Martens, Bruce Cotterrell, Keown Peter and Jack Yeadon.

The Foundation Phase is proud to advertise their Go Fish production. There will be a dress rehearsal on Wednesday 5 August. The final performance will be on Thursday 6 August at 5.30pm in the Aloe Hall. Only the Grade R, Grade 1, Grade 2 and Grade 3 pupils will be performing in this concert. Tickets available at the office from Wednesday 22 July. Adult tickets are R20 and pupil tickets are R10.

The Foundation Phase parents and teachers will once again be manning and supplying the Cuppa@Quackers garden at the Wembley College Duck Derby. Please keep Friday 11 and Saturday 12 September free so you can come and relax at Quackers.

We are sad to bid a heartfelt farewell to Tara, Jorgen and Lily Nel. They are emigrating to Canada in August. Mrs Nel was an invaluable help in Grades R, 1, 2 and 3. She will be missed and we wish her, Etienne, Jorgen and Lily everything of the best in their relocation.

At the beginning of the term the Form 3 class brought two duck eggs to school. After 28 days only one of the eggs hatched, and so Falcon the Duck was born. Falcon is now two weeks old and spending time with the Grade 2 class who stopped by for a visit on Wednesday 24 June. Falcon will be seen again next term for its favourite event, the Duck Derby.

On Wednesday 24 June, the Grade 1 class went on their final outing for the term to Fergus and Ashley Buchan’s farm. Pupils had a chance to feed a few calves which were only a few weeks old. They were also shown how to lasso a calf and even got to hold the rope. The class had a picnic on some hay bales and were then shown how to treat older cows if they got sick. After this interesting lesson the pupils were treated with a ride back to the picnic spot on the back of a truck that usually loads cattle, hay and even cabbages. Thank you very much to the Buchans for having the pupils
