Dear Parents/Guardians

 

Happy belated wishes to all our mums for Mothers’ Day.  Being a parent comes with no instruction manual but is one of the most important and rewarding jobs.

 

CITY OF HARARE

Thank you to all the parents who responded to our request to help with the road signs and leaking water pipes. I was encouraged and feel confident that once the land has dried up we will see an improvement in this area.

 

ASSEMBLY

Please note that assembly is now at 7.30 am on both Monday and Wednesday.

 

FIRST AID BOXES
Our grateful thanks to Drs. Masumba for the very generous donation of first aid supplies.

 

SHAVUOT

Our Shavuot service will be organised by Mrs Makunike and the Grade Five class and will be held on Friday 18th May at 9.45 am.  The children will wear white and a garland and donate fruit and vegetables to an old age home and the workers.

 

Shavuot is the “Feast of Weeks”.  It marks the important wheat harvest in the land of Israel.  (Exodus Ch 34 v 22) and it commemorates the anniversary of the day G-d gave the Torah to the nation of Israel assembled at Mount Sinai.  The festival of Shavuot marks the completion of the seven week period between Passover and Shavuot.

 

Monday 21st May the school is closed for the Shavuot Jewish Holy Day.

 

AFTERNOON ACTIVITIES

Afternoon activities start this week.  Just a reminder clubs are from 3.30 pm – 4.30 pm.  This afternoon we start our Agriculture Club.  In future, the club members will prepare their own beds.

SHABBAT COLLECTION

PURIM COLLECTION

Thank you to all the parents who ordered Purim photographs last term.  This collection enabled us to purchase towel dispensers for the ladies’ and gents’ toilet.
