Preschool children will be prepared fully for the Grade 1 year, catering for Grade 00 (4-5 years old) and Grade 0 (5-6 years old). The junior primary classes (Grades 1 to 3) concentrate on the tools of early literacy and numeracy. Senior primary (Grades 4 to 7) subjects are expanded to take in the languages (English, siSwati and Afrikaans - as needed), human, social and natural sciences to stress and foster of each child's ability to discover and think rather than simply learn facts. Hlanganani strives to prepare children for the expectations of the Swazi and South African high school curriculum. Physical training is offered within the school day. Team sports are strongly encouraged. Cultural activities incorporating music, dance and drama are an integral part of school activities. Organised academic and sports outings are included in school term. Activities offered include: cricket, soccer, netball, swimming, drummies, agriculture, choir, home economics and art.

Mission: Our objective here at Hlanganani Primary School is to provide an excellent standard of education and, at the same time, equip each child with the skills to live confidently and successfully as individuals in today's changing world, respecting, appreciating and freely interacting with the diversity of all those within the global community — hence the name Hlanganani, which translates to "Let's come together."
The first day of school was a very exciting day for most. There were a few tears amongst our preschoolers and some of our moms. It's a big step going to school for the first time. We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all our new students and their families. Many more photos to follow.
How to prepare your child for the first day of school:
1) Talk to your child about his/her feelings about school, friends, teachers, and new activities.
2) Practice, practice, practice! Learning how to get ready each morning for the trip to school takes time and practice. It's helpful to practice this before the actual first day. Pretend it's a school day, and go through the steps of getting up, dressed, fed, and out the door.
3) Create a chart to help your child remember all she/he needs to do in the mornings.
4) Rehearse self-help skills such as dressing, undressing, and hand-washing. Your child will feel more confident when she's asked to do these things at school.
5) Make a portable family album. You can't stay with your child all year, but your photos can! The process of making a photo album together is a bonding and comforting project. Use a small, soft plastic album that can be carried, and kissed!
6) Ask your child what kind of snack he/she wants to bring. Shop together for healthy ingredients and engage her/him in the making and packing of the snack.
7) Go school shopping. Back-to-school clothes and items are popular with little kids as well as big. It's not too early to start the ritual of shopping for special school outfits or a backpack. It doesn't have to be something expensive. Even a "new-to-you" item will have meaning when it is designated especially for back to school.
8) Dealing with separation anxiety: Reassure your little one that you will be returning to pick them up in a few hours' time to hear all about their big day, and make them aware that the teacher is there to help, if they need it.
If you're particularly concerned about your child settling in or you know there are problems at home which may affect their behaviour, just talk to the teacher. Remember, they are professionals and are used to dealing with all types of children who are starting school. They will call if there are any problems. Try to enjoy the rest of your day - without worrying too much!
9) Home time: Make sure you're not late when it comes to picking them up. You don't want them to be anxious that you're not there, and they will be excited to tell you all about their day. Set some quality time aside to have a chat about how things went, perhaps with an afternoon snack.
10) Assure your child that everyone gets a little nervous on the first day of school. Talk about what other children are probably feeling and how the feeling will pass very soon. Remind them that you will see them in the afternoon and how you will look forward to hearing all about their day.
We are OPEN.
The office will be open from 9am - 4pm daily until Friday for enrollments, uniform orders and assessments.
PLEASE NOTE: The office will NOT be open on Monday, 13th January 2020.
A very HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our students, parents and guardians. May 2020 bring love, joy and prosperity.
From the management & staff @ Hlanganani.
Year-End Stress Busters
- Repurpose: Donate unused items i.e. clothes, kitchenware, linen, furniture, etc. to those in need.
- Reconnect: Take time out to reconnect with friends and relatives who add joy to your life.
- Reflect: What have you achieved? What haven’t you achieved and how important is it for you? Set three major goals for 2020 and determine a game plan. Commit!
- Restore: Your body got you through 2019. Show gratitude by treating it to wholesome healthy food, go for walks, breath!
- Relax: Slow down, enjoy the sunset! This is your opportunity to build new reserves for 2020. You can only give what you have!
Rejoice! You did your best even though everything wasn’t always of the best. May the end of 2019 bring you much love, peace and that well-deserved rest.

The Mercury / Friday
A Hearty Applause for:
Parents who hold demanding jobs, yet are involved in their children’s academic and sports lives.
Men and women who love and enjoy their in-laws and who break the stereotypes of the alienated or rejected in laws.
Grandparents who lavish their grandchildren with love and attention while supporting the family values treasured by their grandchildren’s parents.
Men and women who work the late shifts and serve their communities while most of the population are asleep.
Men and women who have beaten their addictions and live productive, sober lives as recovered addicts.
Teachers who have worked faithfully, decade upon decade, so their students may learn and grow and be equipped to find great success.
Bosses and supervisors who are kind, who listen, who seek to understand more than they seek to whip things into shape or to wield their power.
Churches and places of worship that embrace and welcome all people.
Single parents who are able to hold things together and provide stable homes for their children.
Divorced parents who are able to be kind and cooperative with their former spouses, even if it is just for the sake of the children they co-parent.
Men and women who deal graciously with the pain of having family who live abroad or at least far enough away to make regular visits difficult or even seemingly impossible.
