The Swim-a-thon

By Primary School News, School News

The Swim-a-thon has a longstanding tradition in the Primary School. Thank you to those who attended the 2022 Swim-a-thon. . Our little swimmers braved the early morning chill and showed off their fantastic swimming skills.

The total amount raised was R54 425. The PA collected R1920 of the total from their food stalls and Mr van der Merwe managed to raise R860. Well done!

The top class, Grade 2, (Mrs Els), collected R8 100. The top grade, Grade 3, (Ms Bacalhau and Ms Breuer) collected R9 388. The funds have traditionally gone to upgrading some aspect of the sports facilities and this year will be no different.

Grade 2 project-based learning

By Creative Arts, Primary School News, School News

As part of the Grade 2 project-based learning activity, students were tasked with making a bear. This task helps enhance their fine motor skills. Using both hands together in a coordinated manner is a skill needed for handwriting, scissor use, and many functional tasks. When colouring, a child needs to hold the paper as they colour.
