GREYTOWN Primary pupils are flying high in the academic field.
Grade 6 and Grade 7 pupils participated in the Astro Quiz and were placed at both circuit and district level.
The following pupils will now progress to level 3 and 4 (provincial level) in Richards Bay - Asanda Malunga, Joshua Moodley, Nirvad Ori and Asanda Gumede. Mr N Amarnath mentored the pupils.

Grade 4 pupil, Kisten Naicker, participated in the language festival and placed first at district level, which was held in Dundee for story telling (Nguni Language 2).
Kisten will now participate at provincial level on 26 August to be held in the Drakensberg. The school is proud of the pupils and teacher, Ms N. P. Zuma.

The following pupils, Aphiwe Khanyile (Grade 4), Takudzwa Mkwanazi (Grade 6) and Tia Reece Govender (Grade 6) participated in the Spelling Bee Competition at Greytown Primary School. Aphiwe and Tia are selected to represent the circuit in Dundee on 18 August.
The school wishes these pupils and their teacher, Mrs K. D. Maharaj, everything of the best.

GREYTOWN Primary School is hosting its popular family fun day on Saturday 20 August and there is an exciting line-up of activities for all ages, including Vees neighbourhood walk, Glamorous Gran competition and musical and dance items to showcase pupils’ talents and provide family entertainment.

Greytown Primary School staff and pupils will ensure the day is jam-packed with many activities, sporting events and stalls for all to enjoy.

Sports fans can watch and cheer pupils, or take part themselves, in a number of sporting events including a Thunee and darts tournament.

To promote a healthy living, everyone is encouraged to participate in the Vees Neighbourhood Walk, bond with young and old family members on the walk, and corporate business houses and schools are urged to participate as a team-building exercise.

Entry is R20 per person and each participant will receive a medal. Participants are encouraged to be colourful and can wear costumes to promote fun, laughter and comradeship.

Ladies will be able to pamper themselves with Mendhi, and manicures, nail art and neck and head massages will be available.

Not forgetting the grannies, they can compete in a glamour contest with exciting prizes up for the taking and there is also a Miss and Mr GPS competition, a fashion parade and “Idols” contest.

There is no need to be concerned about cooking because GPS will provide meals - from various curries and rice to pap, braai packs, hot dogs, sweets and savouries and a tea garden sponsored by Just Cakes.

There will also be lots to keep the little ones busy with jumping castles, rides, face painting, fish pond.

So go long to Greytown Primary School for a day of fun, not just for the family, but for the community of Greytown.

Stalls are still available at R150 for the day. This is a good opportunity for businesses to showcase their wares (excluding food and refreshments as GPS will provide this).

Greytown Primary School staff and pupils invite all to this day of family bonding and community building.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
