Dear Parents

Empathy is the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner. Thank you.

After a relatively short period of time, mother succumbed to her various ailments and passed away. Your love and support over this last week has been amazing. Thank you.

Thank You…

Thank you to the parents from Andrea and Binkie’s class. The children LOVED all the yummy treats that were sold. In fact there was so much that we were also able to sell some this morning too. A grand total of R622 was raised. Well done.

Arbour Week 1-7 September

To celebrate Arbour week, we will be planting five trees on Friday of this week. A note has been emailed to you to this effect. Please consider donating R10 towards the purchasing of the trees.

Open Day 15 September

Open Day is just around the corner. It is an important fund raising event, held at the school not only to raise some much needed money, but to showcase our wonderful school. We expect EVERY parent to play a key role in hosting the day. We need your support in making the day a success. It will begin at 9h00 and end at about 14h00.

We will set up from 8h00 and pack up as soon as the day begins to unwind. I hope you have responded favourably to the request that was sent out last week.

(Please note that there is National Clean-up Day on the same day as our open Day. PHES will be hosting a beach clean-up at a later date. The Open Day takes precedence over it.)

Assessments Term 3!

Assessments are generally in the form of tasks and assignments for the senior classes, although there are some smaller tests in between. A timetable has been sent out in this regard. Please take the time to read through it and ensure that adequate work and preparation is done daily at home.

If you have any concerns regarding the progress of your child, please contact their teacher. Also let the school/teacher know if there are any changes at home that is affecting your child emotionally. Things at home often spill over into the school day and we need a heads up so that we can deal with it in the best way possible.

Have a fabulous week.

Light and love
