FRIDAY 22nd NOVEMBER 2019
This was a first on our school calendar and a definite to repeat.
We decided to dedicate a concert to all our donors and sponsors and treat them to a tea and coffee served with deliciously tempting eats.
For the first time we had a stage assembled from rigid plastic pallets (donated by Permoseal (Pty) Ltd) plus a beautiful Christmas tree groaning under the weight of all the colourful decorations and lights. The walls of the BIG shed were adorned with artwork from the 6 classes and voila, the room was entirely reformed.
Close to 80 sponsors and donors shared the morning with us and what a memorable and special morning it was.
I would like to be bold and say with confidence that everything was PERFECT.
The children performed so well – their singing, dancing, poems, prayers and rhymes.
The selection of eats was remarkable with just enough left over to allow the staff some treats.
Hugs were encouraged and enjoyed by all our visitors who were literally ambushed by the children.
MOST IMPORTANT – THANK YOU TO EVERY SPONSOR AND DONOR
Makabongwe simply would not be were it not for the ongoing support, love and dedication of each and every sponsor.
Thank you for being our VIP friends and ensuring we continue to serve the community for another 24 years!
Watch this space – our VIP Celebration will definitely be featured on our 2020 calendar.
GRADE 000 AND GRADE 00 CHRISTMAS CONCERT
TUESDAY 26th NOVEMBER 2019
All the practicing, singing, rehearsing of lines, poems, rhymes paid off BIG dividends when the children wowed their parents and our visitors on Tuesday 26TH November at the Christmas concert.
Whenever I welcome the parents and visitors I always explain just how much time and effort is put into preparing for the concerts BUT we can never be sure of what the children will actually do on the day.
However, they NEVER let us down. For often than not, a spontaneous deviation from the program results in much laughter and pleasure to the audience.
Each class performed their items beautifully with confidence and enthusiasm – whether it was a dance, song, poem, rhyme or prayer.
The parents were extremely proud, the children enjoyed themselves and the teachers delighted that all their hard work had indeed paid off.
Well done Green, Blue and Red group children. The concert was lovely.
GRADE R CHRISTMAS CONCERT AND GRADUATION
THURSDAY 28th NOVEMBER 2019
This is indeed a VERY important event on the Grade R calendar – the end of pre-school and the start of a whole new chapter in the lives of the Grade R learners.
Teachers, parents and learners wait for this day with much excitement and anticipation.
Thursday 28th November was no different.
This was the day when the children would show case their talents and let their families see just how hard they had worked during the year and how much they had learnt. The morning can only be described as a wonderful success.
It was very evident that the teachers, assistants and children were all enjoying themselves and by the enthusiastic response of the audience, so were they.
Now the challenge for me is that I am always busy playing the piano or CD and never get to take any photos.
Please enjoy some of the photos taken by friends and committee members which capture the essence of the day.
WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR 2019 GRADE R LEARNERS.
