The Excellence in Education Awards are hosted by Think Ahead and the iStore each year. This year we entered various iPad work done by our pupils into the Gr 1-3 Curriculum Category and we entered iPad Club work into the #Mandela100 category.
We were very pleased to have one of our projects place third in the Gr 4-7 Section in the #Mandela100 category. Congratulations to Chinika Goliath and Rachel Gardiner who produced a wonderful movie about the life of Nelson Mandela. Mrs Ranwell attended the awards ceremony in Johannesburg on behalf of the school and the girls.
Our staff have had wonderful two days of iPad training this week. Parents became teachers for a few hours and helped to look after the classes while our staff were trained by Wendy from Think Ahead. Yesterday they were introduced to the exciting world of coding and got to play with Sphero balls. We have an amazingly creative staff and it was wonderful to watch them collaborating in teams. We look forward to seeing all the new ideas in the classroom in the near future.
