Sensational Sixes

Grade 6 Camp at Rocklands!

During the second last week of term, the grade 6 pupils and their very lucky teachers made their way to Rocklands, near Simonstown.

We were all fortunate enough to spend three days and two nights in this very beautiful part of the world. Activities included obstacle courses, drumming, rock-climbing, building sand castles and archery – to name but a few!

It was a very busy and FUN filled three days. A much quieter bus trip on the way home was testament to that!

The 2015 Senior Primary Interhouse Gala

On Saturday the 7th of March, all the pupils at the Senior Primary were involved in the annual Interhouse Gala. The morning began with passionate war cries ringing around the sports field… Ruby… Sapphire… Emerald…
The competition was fierce and the spirit was strong! In the end, Emerald showed the most passion, walking away with the spirit cup. Absolute glory though, belonged to Sapphire house, overall winners on the day!
Well done Sapphire, you deserved the victory….. bring on 2016!

Intaka Island 2015

On Monday the 16th and Tuesday the 17th of February, the Gr 6 pupils visited Intaka Island in Century City. It is a fascinating place as it is situated right in the heart of the city amongst all the buildings. It is a natural wetland that has been looked after through all the development around it. It is a place of sanctuary for the birds. We took a trip around the wetlands by boat, learnt about food chains and food webs, and had the opportunity to learn more about our local bird population. A place of great beauty amongst the concrete jungle, we recommend you visit the island yourself!
