FIRST DAY BACK AT SCHOOL
CHOIR BOOT CAMP
The Grade 5 – 7 Choir boys started the year off strong by learning some new exciting repertoire and spent time bonding and getting to know each other, interjected with delicious food and beautiful music during their music boot camp at school.
ORCHESTRA BOOT CAMP
The orchestra boys had a blast in their first week of school. Welcoming new orchestra members, getting to know each other better and even a visit from Mr Naidoo who sat down at the drums and played along.
GRADE 1’s NEW ROUTINE
The Grade 1 boys had an exciting start to the year. They were engaged with the more formal routines and are getting more settled every day. As you can see in the photos they are embracing all aspects of their day and their teachers are so proud of them!
GRADE 7 INDUCTION AND GRADE 4 CAPPING CEREMONY
This year our Grade 4 Capping ceremony and the Grade 7 Induction was held together on the Hersov field. The Grade 4 boys were excited as they were welcomed into the Senior Prep by the Grade 7 boys. The Grade 4 boys each received their caps for Senior School and thereafter watched as the Grade 7 boys took their pledge.
“As a Grade 7 committed to my school, I pledge to: Strive to attain my personal goals and to grasp every opportunity. Be a responsible guide and friend to fellow pupils and peers. Be an active servant in the community and a credit to my family and school”
GRADE 0’s FIRST WEEK
The Grade 0 boys had a busy and exciting start to the first week of their new school. They learnt about “Our Bodies” by painting, drawing and building our bodies. The boys have been developing their gross motor muscles on the equipment in the garden. The fantasy corner has been brought back to life, with dress-up clothes and office equipment.
Boys learnt about measurement through water play with their friends. To encourage interaction with their new classmates the boys played with cars and toys, learnt how to share with others and explored their new environment.
