Junior Club Newletter December 2019

Junior Club Newletter December 2019


It’s Christmas time already! The Junior Club students have been busy with much Christmas crafting and drawing.

Of course the moment it was “socially acceptable” to begin playing Christmas music the children wanted to hear it!
We had a fun afternoon singing along to karaoke versions of Christmas songs!

Before this, we also celebrated Thanksgiving at our school and we encouraged the students to be mindful of what they are thankful for.

We are fortunate to have some talented young folk with us in Junior Club and Gabriel is one of them.  

Here he is giving us a taste of his expertise on the violin.

Junior Club Newsflash!

Junior Club Newsletter November 2019

Greeting from IES Junior Club!

We trust that you were able to enjoy some quality family time over the höstlov. 

Our focus for October was Breast Cancer Awareness. We spoke about encouraging the women in our lives to regularly “check their chests” and the children worked on art pieces featuring the pink ribbon which represents this cause. 

Continuing with  the theme of Breast Cancer Awareness, we also showed the students how to make beaded bracelets using safety pins, using pink & white as a colour scheme. This is a traditional South African craft idea and although it is time consuming, the end results are beautiful!

Halloween always brings much excitement to the school building as well as giving the opportunity to try out different crafting ideas.  We encourage UP-CYCLING materials to use in crafting as often as we can and the use of otherwise “throw away junk” proved successful in making Halloween themed pieces. 

Baking is one of the children’s favourite activities so the making of pizza was especially exciting for them!


From Week 46, our school will be offering breakfast and “mellis” at a nominal cost. Our Junior Club students will be able to have their “mellis” free of charge as they have already paid for the term. Should they want to buy breakfast however, they can purchase a clip card from Ms Hamed in her office.

We also want to wish everyone a Happy Fathers Day!

Kind regards
