Extended July Holiday

13 July 2021
Dear Parents,

We hope that everyone is safe and healthy and the learners are using the holiday to recharge for the third term.

In light of President Cyril Ramaphosa's announcement on the extension of the school holidays to 26 July 2021, relevant information regarding the resumption of academic work is of interest.

Our school is in the privileged position that all academic work for Term 1 and Term 2 has been completed in full. Our planning for Term 3 has also already been done as we would have returned on 20 July 2021 to start Term 3.

Therefore, we are quite ready to start at full pace with our academics on 26 July 2021. It is not necessary at this stage, to send any online or alternative schoolwork to pupils during the extended holiday – which will be just 4 days.

Should any unforeseen circumstances necessitate online teaching after 26 July, our plans are in place, and we will communicate any necessary information to you in this regard.

Enjoy the time with your children and stay safe and healthy. School will resume at 08h00 on 26 July 2021.

King’s School greetings
N ONTONG
Principal

Latest Newsletter 2021

Dear Parents,
June/July 2021
 
We are grateful that we have come to the end of term 2 of 2021, without any major issues.

Yes, we are just as concerned as you are regarding the COVID situation which could lead to lockdown. Fortunately, the DBE indicated that schools will not be closed. Our teachers are also now eligible to get the vaccine via the DBE. We have completed all the relevant information and are awaiting further instructions from the WCED as to how and when King’s School staff will be vaccinated.

The children wrote their mid-year exams and by all accounts it went off well. We had no incidents that may have affected the outcome of the exams.

Teachers have arranged interviews with parents for the week of 21 June – 24 June. You would have received a relevant invitation from the class teacher. We feel it is important and necessary to keep you appraised of your child’s performance for the term.

Please be advised that the Gr 5 & 6 parent interviews have been scheduled for next term.

 “Children need art and stories and poems and music as much as they need love and food and fresh air and play.“ Wise words from Philip Pullman, who received the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award in 2005: Posted: 19 August 2019.

 Children need art and stories and poems and music as much as they need love and food and fresh air and play. If you don’t give a child food, the damage quickly becomes visible. If you don’t let a child have fresh air and play, the damage is also visible, but not so quickly. If you don’t give a child love, the damage might not be seen for some years, but it’s permanent. But if you don’t give a child art and stories and poems and music, the damage is not so easy to see. It’s there, though. Their bodies are healthy enough; they can run and jump and swim and eat hungrily and make lots of noise, as children have always done, but something is missing. It’s true that some people grow up never encountering art of any kind, and are perfectly happy and live good and valuable lives, and in whose homes there are no books, and they don’t care much for pictures, and they can’t see the point of music. Well, that’s fine. I know people like that. They are good neighbours and useful citizens.
