Dear Parents/Guardians

 

CHOICE CHILDREN’S CHOIR

It is with great excitement that the Choice Children’s Choir leaves for Tshwane on Wednesday 4th July to compete in the World Choir Games.  Thirteen of our pupils will be competing and we would like to wish them success and enjoyment for this awesome experience.

 

I would like to thank all involved but in particular the Sharon parents who have been totally committed to the smooth running of the choir from organising the concerts and tour, organising uniforms and providing teas at the functions.  Thank you to you all.  Travel safely and “break a leg”!

 

GRADE SEVEN CHISZ ENTRY EXAMINATION

On Saturday 7th July our Grade Sevens write the CHISZ Common Entrance Examination for high school.  They have been hard at work and Ms Le Roux and all the teachers have prepared them well.   Please make sure they rest well on Friday and eat healthy food.  It is important they stay calm and try their best.

SHARON SCHOOL GOLF DAY

Grateful thanks to Mrs Natalie Shallow, Mr Brett Sinclair, and Mr Herman Grau and to all the P.A. committee for an excellent golf day held at Borrowdale Brooke Golf Club on Sunday 1st July.  The golf was fun and the atmosphere was very jovial.  Here’s hoping that all the committee’s hard work has been rewarded with a good profit!

There will be a ‘Musicians in the Making’ Concert on Tuesday 17th July at 1.15 pm in the J.P. Hall to showcase our young musicians.

RECORDERS

Just a reminder from the Music Department – children need a recorder and a book for playing for their music lessons.  The books are available from the school office for $10.00 but unfortunately we no longer stock recorders.
