Dear Parents

Turn your face towards the sun  and all shadows fall behind you. ~ AU

May we take this opportunity to wish all Christian families a blessed Easter.


Thank you for all the promised sponsorships received on the pathways so far. Let’s work hard on these during these last few weeks. A reminder that we are collecting items for all our stalls during this period running up to the Big Walk. Tombola items, White Elephant and Book Stall items are most welcome and can be sent to school. We have received very few prizes for our raffle list and other stalls and are URGENTLY appealing to parents and companies who can sponsor prizes for our Big Walk to please send them to the office. (The actual raffle prizes are only required in August but we need to know now which prizes we have, in order to include them on the raffle lists)


We are asking for extra parents to assist our ladies during the mornings of April and May (08:30 – 10:00) to help sort out the items donated for the Big Walk. Sorting will take place on Wednesday, 24 April at 08:30. Please phone the office and leave your name if you are able to assist.


We are giving our Grade 1, 2 & 3 mothers an early invitation to the Mothers’ Day assembly to be held on Thursday, 9 May in the school hall.

Please pack extra lunch and a blanket for your child on the day, so that you can picnic with them on the playground after the assembly. You are also invited to collect a cup of tea from the staffroom.

As in the past we rely on our mom’s kindness and generosity to support a given charity. This year we will be helping ‘Cupcakes for Cancer’. We are asking that you donate cupcakes for us to sell on the day. (Please see separate letter).  Your donations will be greatly appreciated.
