Welcome back after a brief break from the usual daily routine. We hope that everyone had a good rest and are ready to tackle the new term with all it’s challenges.
This is a big term for our Muise and older Ladybirds who are going to big school next year. They do some fine tuning of all the skills they have learnt so far to make sure they are ready for the change from pre-school to big school. We would like to emphasize how important it is that the friends come to school every day and that they should learn to function independently, e.g. walk to class themselves, dress and undress themselves, put on / take off shoes themselves, carry their own lunchbox or school bag. It gives them confidence and teaches them to take responsibility for their own possessions.
Our term started with a very fun theme, namely “Children of the World”. Thank you to Tannie Christa who adjusted the menu of this week to fit in with the theme and countries that was covered. The children really enjoyed it.
We are sure you are just as happy as we are that the country is now on Level 1 and we have a little bit more freedom. On that note, we decided to end the year with a “mini – bazaar” on Friday 26 November. Please make a note of this in your diary. It is not going to be as big as our normal bazaar and it is not going to take place in the school building, but under the trees at the parking area.
The classes are responsible for the following tables:
- Vlinders – Toys
- Skilpadjies – Drinks
- Beertjies – Pancakes (with the Eendjies)
- Eendjies – Pancakes (with the Beerjies)
- Pikkewyne – White Elephant
- Bytjies – Farm Stall (with the Muise)
- Hasies – Food (with the Aftercare)
- Muise – Farm Stall (with the Bytjies)
- Ladybirds – Sweets
- Aftercare – Food (with the Hasies)
To make this event a success, it will take a team effort. We ask that each Kabouter donate an amount of R50 which will be used for the table or you are more than welcome to donate products / items which can be sold at the table. Feel free to talk to your class teacher if you prefer option 2. If you have any unwanted items lying around at home, feel free to bring it for our “white elephant table”….like they say….one man’s junk is another man’s treasure”
PLEASE NOTE: Every donation will be greatly appreciated, but is not mandatory.
Along with our mini – bazaar, we will also be selling raffle tickets again. Anyone who is willing to donate a prize for the raffle can send an email to Anneke at firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate what the prize is (e.g. voucher, wine, hamper, overnight in guest house, toys for children, a lamb, round of golf or anything you make / sell are welcome)
We wish everyone a wonderful last term. Just a hint; there are only 11 Fridays until Christmas!
