SOME children feel nervous or a little scared on the first day of school because of all the new things - new teachers, new friends, and maybe even a new school. Luckily, these "new" worries only stick around for a very little while at New Hanover Prep. The inspiring church service, including a welcoming blessing for all new pupils and their parents at the altar, as well as the traditional comfort of a Zuckertüten for all Grade 1 pupils, set the tone for a terrific school year.

The annual parent information evening once again provided a great introduction to the exciting journey ahead by supplying parents with information relative to their child's year group.

“Talking Drums” visited our school this week presenting an interactive percussion experience. The children thoroughly enjoyed these team-building sessions, which serve to encourage listening skills, promote confidence and access motor skills in a fun environment.
