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. “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.
