Good evening everyone!! Who’s pumped?!?!? I know I am! I hope that everyone had an excellent break. I went up to Coral Bay for the first time. Can’t believe that I haven’t been there before! Such a wicked place. Taste of SMMC : Just a reminder that all Year 4 students will be heading off on Friday to experience some of the delights of SMMC.

Good afternoon everyone, Thank you to all those people that have helped out already as well as those who have sent emails through. We are on the hunt for helpers to assist with the putting together of our Uthando Dolls. We will need assistance on Wednesday afternoons between 1:45 to 2:45pm. All volunteers will need to sign in at the front office, receive a visitors badge and then make their way down to the Year 4 area! We are looking for 4-5 parents each Wednesday to come in and help as we will assign the students in a round robin fashion. Each doll will need the following - a face, hair, underwear, clothing and bag.   Check out the link below for guidelines on how to make the dolls. Uthando Dolls - Guidelines to make. Below is a link to an editable Google Doc where you can add in your availability. I will out up a paper copy outside 4DAN if you can not access this document. Alternatively email what dates you are available for and I will put your name on the roster. Uthando Dolls - Ros

Welcome to week 4 everyone! I hope that all the Mother’s in the class were spoilt yesterday!! You all work so hard, so I hope you’re getting the love you deserve. Absentees: Could you please fill in an absentee form either online or handwritten your child is absent? It is legal requirement that I have to ‘resolve absences’ when a student is away. If they are filled in online or handwritten it is a lot easier then chasing up everyone at the end of the semester.   Wheels after Meals: This will be held tomorrow (Tuesday 11th of May). Children are encouraged to bring along their roller blades, skateboards or scooters (no bikes) and the appropriate protective gear. Please be aware that if they do not have their helmet, they will not be able to participate in this wonderful initiative.    Book Fair for 2021: The lovely Mrs. Kemp is holding the annual Scholastic Book fair for 2021 in our school Library on Tuesday and Wednesday of Week 5 (18th and 19th of May). We hope to sell a lot of books a
