Grade 1’s had a visitor from St George’s hospital.  A special nurse came to speak to them about everything that happens in a hospital. She showed them some equipment, they got their own doctor kits and they experienced hearing each other’s hearts beat. 
What an exciting day it was indeed

On Friday 16 August 2019, Room 2 did some awesome orals.

The Topic was: " What I want to be when I grow up."

The children either dressed up or brought props to make their orals amazing.

Mrs Pugh was very proud of all of the time and effort that was put into making these orals interesting and exciting for the whole class.

Well done, Room 2

The Grade 6 Reading Competition was held on the 6th of August 2019 in the school library.  The competition was fierce between our eight finalists namely, in order of appearance, Phillipa de Vos (Room 17), Ishaam Sandan (Room 14), Imaan Bhene (Room 14), Audrey Yossakamlouk (Room 16), Jade Carolus (Room 15), Fezile Damoyi (Room 15), Kate Kruger (Room 15) and Zahraa Cadderbegg (Room 16).

The book that was read this year was Lemony Snicket’s – A Series of Unfortunate Events.  The audience was captivated by Mrs Richardson’s reading of the story and made our finalists feel at ease when it was their turn to read. A big thank you to her for taking time and reading to us.

Our judge for the morning was Mrs Venter. She said that she was impressed with all the readers and was excited to have had a preview of what she would enjoy in Grade 7 next year.

The Annual Grade 7 Reading Competition was held on Thursday, 8 August 2019, in the school’s media centre. The audience was treated to a story by Tom Hoyle, titled Challenge.  The children were soon caught up in a world of intrigue, while many could relate to the main character - who had to cope with losing a loved one, school and peer pressure - as best as a 15-year-old boy can cope in those circumstances. 

Mrs Richardson did a sterling job in keeping the flow of the story going while our top readers - Sophie Glibbery, Amy Saunders, Tauqeer Jappie, Chinika Goliath, Jasmin Esau, Emile Doyle, Sage Walton and Siyaam Shaw - battled it out for top place and the honor of winning the trophy. 

Congratulations to our winner, Siyaam Shaw, who was well deserving of yet another win. Thanks and appreciation must also go to Mrs J Pons who adjudicated the competition for us.
