Time really does fly. Half the year has flown by. Our 125th school birthday has come and gone.
Our 125th Birthday was truly well celebrated. There was a big walk to the old school, 3 St Charles pipers, a Thanksgiving Service, a school picnic, the releasing of 40 pigeons, past pupils tea for our school, another for the old school and a school family braai. The weather was great and an awesome time was had by everyone. A huge thank you to the staff for their expertise and hard work and to everyone who attended the functions and helped to make our 125th Birthday a wonderful occasion.

WINNERS OF THE R500 MNDENI MEAT VOUCHER
The first voucher was won by Erin Phillips in Grade 1 Kent. The other voucher was won by Nthandoyenkosi Khuzwayo in Grade RR Madondo .
On Friday 4th September, people in the work place and at school will especially remember those that have disabilities; the blind, the deaf, the crippled etc. Any children and staff who want to support this cause by buying a R10 Casual Day Sticker may come to school dressed “casually” and wearing their stickers. The theme for this year is “Spring into Action”. St Christopher’s School is a beneficiary of Casual Day and we will support them by buying stickers from them. For each sticker purchased their school gets R4-00. The rest of the money goes directly to NCPPD who are responsible for Casual Day. Children may order Casual Day stickers from Miss Meyer (Gr4). Money can be sent via your daughter in her homework book (R10 Casual Day). Buying a sticker is not compulsory, but only those who have a R10 Casual Day sticker may wear casual clothes (Civvies) on Friday 4th September.
Thank you to the Oompa Loompa’s in Grade 4 from Willy Wonka’s factory who created sweet trees to sell. The proceeds from the sale of the sweet trees went towards making LGS look good for our 125th Birthday.
