Dear Parents/Guardians

 

It is amazing to realise that we have reached the last week of term.  Well done to the children for working hard and achieving good results academically, on the sports’ field and at the Eisteddfod.  My thanks to the parents for their support and help in many areas like providing eats for functions, food and support for the World Food Day, help with the Choice Choir and an excellent effort for the Carnival.  Thanks also to the teachers for their hard work and dedication.  If we all work together we can look forward to a good second term.

 

PARENTS’/GUARDIANS’ SURVEY

Feedback for the 2017 survey will be published at the beginning of next term.

 

INTER-SCHOOL ATHLETICS

This was an exciting event and all the children tried hard.  Well done to Nashe Pepukai for being the top athlete in the U/10 age group.  There were some excellent races where Sharon School pupils paced themselves very well especially for the long distance races.  The relays were wonderful to watch.  Congratulations to U/13 Girls’ and Boys’ relay teams who won their race!  We came third overall being only three points behind Mubeena Ebrahim.  Well done to all the children, Mr Guzha and all the sports’ coaches.

WORLD FOOD DAY

This was a lovely day – thank you to everyone for making it such a success.

CHISIPITE SCIENCE COMPETITION

Congratulations to Maitashe Chikuni for coming first in the Junior section of this competition for her clip demonstrating Archimedes’ Principle.  Her prize was a lovely Picturepedia book. Also well done to the Grade Sevens for making a project on “Eco Gadgets that could have been used Throughout the Ages”.  They were all awarded a certificate and pen for their effort.  Mrs Mahachi from Chisipite, who presented the certificates, commented on how important it is that we all collaborate together and develop critical thinking.

 

HORSE RIDING

Congratulations to Amy Kille for participating in the Three-Day Eventing International

competition at Azuluna over the weekend.  She did really well in the dressage event and

came third overall.

 

At this point I would like to mention that we will be acknowledging extra-curricular  activities

like horse riding, gym and ballet.  Please let me know if your child participates in any discipline

at national, regional or international level.

 

CHOICE CHOIR

Well done to the Choice Choir for an enjoyable concert last week and for a very successful local tour.  Thanks to all the parents for their help too!

 

CHESS

Well done to all the Chess players who played a friendly match on Friday against a club.  Our second team won 9½ – ½ and our first team won 7 – 3. Thanks to Dr Landman, Blessing, Coach John and Mrs Ferreira for their enthusiasm and organisation.

 

PUBLIC SPEAKING

Just a reminder that the Inter-Schools’ Public Speaking competition will take place at Gateway Junior School today at 5.00 pm.  I would like to wish our two contestants, Giovanna Jones and Hanaa Khan all the best and I hope they enjoy their time on stage!
