ON Thursday, October 11, the Form four class experienced the joy of giving during their annual outreach project. Each pupils donated R50 which was used to purchase soft teddies and animals that were donated to the Greytown Kinderhuis. John Martins (fund raiser), Mandisa Ngubane (social worker), and Pabalo Matabese (life coach) from the Kinderhuis informed the Form four class of the wonderful tradition of giving every new child that comes in to the centre a new soft toy to cuddle. Nearing the end of the year, the 18-year-old children at the centre often leave, creating opportunities to house new children. The Form four class donated 38 soft toys to bring some joy to the new children coming to the centre in the next few months. Thank you to the Greytown Kinderhuis and all their staff that make the lives of these little ones a whole lot happier!The Grade two class presented their invention projects to the class last week. We learned about candy floss machines, vulcanised rubber, and found out that the modern tennis ball and rubber as we know it were invented by Charles Goodyear. Well done, Grade twos, on your excellent presentations.Last week the pre-schoolers learned all about the letter “w”. The children were spoilt with a Wacky Wednesday meal with water at Wembley Steers, who kindly delivered them to our doorstep. There was plenty of excitement as children devoured their burgers and water. Thank you Steers Greytown! The Grade threes have learnt about various science themes throughout the year. However, the fourth term’s theme on food gave them a reason to celebrate as an elegant formal dinner was held in the Beryl Hall last week. The children arrived in their best attire, sporting bow ties, sparkling gowns, tuxedos and jewels — each making sure that even the finest detail of their outfit was in tip-top shape. Excitement buzzed in the air as the photos were taken, capturing these precious moments. They were then led into the dining area where the gentlemen helped each young lady find their seat. The Grade threes were treated to a three-course meal and at each course learned about table manners, menus and proper dining etiquette. During the evening, they played food-themed trivia games and thoroughly enjoyed answering some of the brain teasers. A big thank you to Mrs Jilly Hull, Mrs Laverne Pieterse, Mrs Judy Diedricks, Mrs Sarisha Pillay, Mrs Renette Scott and especially Mrs Sajidah Manzoor for all their help in making the evening so much more special. We could not have done it without you.
