We participate in a Speech and Drama Festival every year which is adjudicated by the Speech and Drama Association of South Africa.
Music lessons are varied and Grade threes learn to play the Recorder. Our Grade Three Choir regularly performs at local events and recently performed at St Luke’s Church Fete.
The use of a range of media in art lessons opens a world of creativity for all to enjoy. Being part of the local community, our best art work is displayed at the annual Virginia Art Exhibition show. The classrooms are beautifully decorated with the children’s artwork.
Our Assemblies are open to Parents and visitors and the children are regularly given an opportunity to perform on stage in Class Assemblies and Grade Award Certificate Assemblies where effort and progress is recognised.
During a three year cycle, we host each of the following main productions – a Grand Concert, a Speech & Drama Cultural Evening and a Talent Show.
Hooked-on-Books visit our school to perform the latest children’s books available and the children are regularly entertained by visiting Shows and Productions of an Educational nature.
Entrepreneurship is encouraged at our Market Day.
As part of developing awareness of Environmental issues, we have a weekly Newspaper Recycling Competition in partnership with Mpact. Trophies are awarded in Assembly to the four classes who collect the most paper in a week.
Caring for animals and those less fortunate is the basis of the Charities we support. Every Friday, we donate apples and oranges to “Good Luck Foods” to feed children. We collect soup in winter to help struggling families during the school holidays.
This year, the S.P.C.A received a donation of dog and cat food from the money we raised on Valentine’s Day for Humphrey the dog, who visited our school.
