22 JULY 2015
Spring beckons us outdoors to indulge our bodies and brains in the life-affirming warmth of the strengthening sunlight. Soon we shall be able to tuck away the Winter warmers, shedding layers and preparing for the longer days which will facilitate our rejuvenated energies and activities in the closing months of this year. Term Three saw a great deal of activity here at BPS. We honed our acting, dancing, singing and performance art skills, and presented a most entertaining season of “Peeps into Wonderland”, ensuring much appreciation from our audiences, and a very welcome injection of funds into our school coffers. Thank you so very much to everyone who had a hand in this very successful production – we raised a total amount of R100 000,00.
We celebrated Arbour Week (from 1 – 7 September) with a special Assembly and the planting of an avenue of indigenous trees on the North field which will give shade and entice birds and other useful insects in the years to come. Although the Annual National Assessment tests have been put on hold until December, we embarked upon our own termly assessments and we trust that you will be gratified by your child’s good results. If they have not attained the outcome which you know that they are capable of achieving, there is still time for a determined, focused effort to be undertaken by the team of educator, learner and parents over the next ten weeks, to finish off 2015 on a note of academic triumph.
To all members of the BPS family who have extended their support, kindness, friendliness and encouragement to me during this my first term at the school, I say a warm and grateful THANK YOU. I trust that this happy relationship will continue in the months and years to come.
