Thank You and Welcome Back
Thank you to all at Sugar Bay who made the 2017 Adventure Camp such an awesome and amazing experience for the Courtney Campers. There are tons of photos of the Courtney Camp on the Sugar Bay Facebook Page, go have a look at them! Copies of the original Sugar Bay CD containing photos taken by “Photoshop” during the camp, will be made for the children to take home.
Thank you to Teachers Demi, Cyd, Danielle, Anneke, Cherize, Marlize and Rhodé for the exceptional team work in taking care of the Courtney Group at the airports and whilst on camp.
A huge thank you to the parents for ensuring that the drop off and collection at the airports was done timeously, well done.
Thank you to Teachers Natasha and Anthea as well as the rest of the teaching team for taking care of the rest of the school in our absence.
Student of the Week
Each week, a child from each class is identified as “Student of the Week” for showing excellence or great progress in various areas. Congratulations to the children who received badges last week for “Most Improved Student”. They will wear their badges for this week too.
Please take note that Tuesday 21 March is a public holiday (bank holiday). There will, however, be school as normal on Monday 20 March.
Children in Grade 3 to 6 will write their cycle tests between 22 and 30 March.
Bottle Tops for Wheelchairs
We have started the Class Challenge for the class that brings in the most plastic water/cold-drink/milk bottle tops. The plastic bottle tops are collected for a charity organisation which assists the needy with wheelchairs. Plastic bottle tops can be handed in to the class teacher. The challenge for the prize will close at the end of this term.
For enquiries and registrations for Grade 000 and 00, please contact Melodie at Courtney Kids on 079 8474201. Courtney Kids, which caters for children from about 3 years of age, provides the perfect preparation for the Reception Year programme (Grade 0) at Courtney House.
