Studies, Staff Party and Swim Gala
As the school year hurtles towards it's close, I am, like many teachers, feeling the strain of what must be finished in the time that's left. In addition to school work and my studies (I am currently studying for my NPQH -National Professional Qualification in Headship), I have had a bad bout of intestinal infections which have left me below par and still not quite right.
As a thank you to the staff at the senior school, we had our annual staff appreciation party at our house. As a treat we had a whole hog roast which James and our friend Chad supervised in a specially created pit in our garden.
The Senior school production this year was a version of Shakespeare's As You Like It. All the actors did a really great job as did the teachers who organised the rehearsals.
Acacia's swim gala was held recently and the four houses battled it out through many different events. Da Vinci were the victors, which suited our girls as it's their team.
A couple of weeks ago, the Acacia Parent council hosted a very special event for the Grade 5-7 girls and their fathers. The Daddy Daughter Dance was held on the roof of the senior school and included: red carpet photos; dance classes; a lovely meal; a time for the fathers to speak to and pray for their daughters and a fun disco!
