School photos and compost heap

School Photos:

These will be taken the week of 7-12 March. Please ensure that you complete and return the attached order form along with the correct payment to Teresa by Thursday 3 March. There are numerous packages available but if you would just like a 8×10 photo of your child along with a class photo the cost is R90 (Memory Mate). Any of the packages can be done as sibling photos at no additional cost. Download the order form.

Our Compost Heap:

Lindsay Gray will be visiting our school to tell the children about compost on Friday 19th February. You can start sending in your peelings, vegetables and fruit the following week. Please remember that our worms ‘slurp’ up food at an amazing rate. Perhaps you could let your child separate the peelings for the worms from the food for the compost heap. The worms like their food to be cut in smaller portions eg cut up the apple etc. Please remember what the worms can not eat! A little bit of PT but so good for our children to be involved in this process.

  • We will be selling our worm wee this Friday 12th February at R10 per bottle. Please support our Grade R Entrepreneurs.
