Dear Parents

As we draw closer to Easter, we are reminded of those who have so little.  Thank you for your generous donation of Easter Eggs, some of which have already gone off to underprivileged schools. I will update you once we have a list of all our donations.

We appeal to any parents who are able to deliver our sandwiches to Athwood Primary on a Tuesday morning (someone will go with you to show you how to get there), to please contact Mrs Wendy van Heerden, so that your name may be added to the roster. We collect extra sandwiches or a piece of fruit every Tuesday morning. These donations may be dropped off in the foyer.


We hope to see you at the Skeeles 7s tournament this afternoon at Lutgensvale where the Grade 7 parents are working hard to raise funds for the Grade 7 Farewell. Lots of fun is planned so try and pop along.

Kind regards

The Book People

Next week we will be hosting a book sale up at our hall. Parents and boys are encouraged to come and browse and buy books. They will set up during the morning on Monday. Card facilities will be available.
Civvies Day

On Friday 26 April we will be having a civvies day. Our collection will be all winter blankets, duvets, linen, clothing and shoes that can be beneficial to others during the upcoming Winter.  This is an ideal opportunity to clear out any old items that others can still make use of.

Our congratulations to Evan West, Grade 2 boy who was awarded his South African colours for chess. He has been selected to represent SA at the World Youth Chess Championship, the African Youth Chess Championships and the Commonwealth Chess Championships. We are very proud of you, Evan!
Easter eggs
Thank you so much to all families that have so generously donated to our ever growing Easter egg collection.  If you would still like to donate Easter eggs, we would need to receive them by Tuesday morning for us to distribute before Easter.
Grade 1 Life Skills
The grade 1 boys were mesmerised, looking at what an owl eats and dissecting an actual pellet. They then had fun making their own pellets!
