A Message from the Principal - Friday, April 08, 2016
Today marks the final day of Term 1. One quarter of the school year has already been completed in what seems record time. As a lot of us are thinking, where has the time gone?
As we look on this first term, we have much reason for thanks! Every day the school could open its doors to welcome the children into class, the teachers could teach and the children could learn. We thank the Lord that the aim of the school, for teachers to assist the parents in the education of the children, has been met. This doesn’t mean, of course, that all was done perfectly, for we live in a broken, sinful world. We all have our weaknesses and mistakes are made. But thanks to God, the work continued with many positive outcomes.
Other than the daily lessons and learning in the classroom, some of the other highlights were the community BBQ at the beginning of the year, the sleepover, swimming lessons and various excursions by individual classes. It was great to have parents involved in the school and assist where necessary on these special days.
We also wish to express a word of thanks to the volunteers who regularly come to school to assist in the classrooms and library. For some it’s quite a commitment to be here every week and we really appreciate your help! Should there be others who would like to be involved, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
So the question is, what are we going to do these holidays? Some children tell me they are just staying home, others are going away to different places. Wherever they are I’m sure it will be a lot of fun. At the same time, we live in an era where digital entertainment has taken over the lives of many children. I recently heard that the average child spends 5-6 hours a day staring at screens, either television, video games, the computer or mobile devices. That’s a lot of time per day! My challenge to you is that children remain “unplugged” for enough hours to read, play outside, or even talk to one another. Set some reasonable limits and parameters at the beginning of the holidays and stick with them. You’ll be amazed how challenging that’ll be, yet the benefits will great.
Term 2 begins immediately after Anzac Day, on Tuesday 26th April. We wish you all a blessed, safe and relaxing holiday and look forward to meeting you again next term.

On behalf of the staff,
Henk Plug
