THE U9, U11 and U13 boys’ hockey teams travelled to the Buchan farm on Wednesday, 26 July, for some team building. Thank you to Fergus Buchan and Reverend Swanepoel for their help in a memorable afternoon of activities.
A big thank you to all our Grade 1 and 2 pupils who attended the Night at the Library on Friday, 28 July, we had great fun.
Abigail Scott in Grade 2 and Lizé Pretorius in Grade 1 won prizes for the most creative book marks. Well done, girls.
On Friday 28 July and Saturday 29 July, Wembley College hosted its annual inter-house athletics events. On Friday, the long-distance events took place and it was encouraging to witness the amount of participants who took part. Saturday saw the main events take place in windy conditions.
Overall the day was a success as the various events were competitive and our pupils put on impressive performances throughout the day. A total of eight records were broken on the day.
We would like to thank all the staff who helped on the day and a special thanks to our guest of honour, Mr Grant Goble, as well as the parents who showed their support.
The Museum Art Fair on Sunday, 30 July was a combination of art, craft, music, food, drink and good weather. The museum setting enhanced the relaxed, country atmosphere at the fair. 
Our school fitted into this mix beautifully because our strengths are our focus on family, country and entrepreneurial skills. This is our first attempt at a market and we plan to get involved in many more markets. 
The Wembley entrepreneurial stall was run by Mrs Swanepoel, Mr and Mrs Swart, Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs Yeadon. 
Amelia Yeadon, Chloe Hecter and Kristen Steyn were the helpful and competent pupils who assisted at the market.  Thank you for all your hard work on Sunday. Last week the junior primary held their annual “Anti-Bullying Week” and we enjoyed learning a little more about such an important topic.
We spoke about the different types of bullying, what to do in situations where bullying is a factor and how to speak positively to others. We spoke about having respect for ourselves, others, our belongings and our environment.
