Welcome back to school to all our learners!Wishing all our Learners,Parents and Educators a fruitful 2024🙏Remember you ENTER to LEARN and leave to SERVE👌...What a busy three days at school... Preparation of classes by teachers and general workers, Wellness Workshop for Educators and of course our Day 1 with our excited learners!A blessed 2024 to all the Avondale Primary Family!


Dear parents / guardians / learners
School is about to start so please sit down with your child for 5 minutes and explain that being very tall, short, introverted, chubby, skinny, dark skinned or pale is no joke.
That there is nothing wrong with wearing the same shoes every day.
Explain to them that a used backpack carries the same dreams as a new one.
Teach them not to exclude someone because they are "different" or do not have the same opportunities as others.
Explain that teasing hurts...and that they go to school to LEARN, NOT to compete.

It's *AT HOME* that children should learn to say:
01 - Good morning
02 - Good afternoon
03 - Good evening
04 - Please
05 - With your permission
06 - Sorry
07 - Forgive me
08 - Thank you very much
09 - Thank you
10 - I was wrong
It's *AT HOME* that we also learn to:
01 - Be honest
02 - Be punctual
03 - Do not insult
04 - Be polite
05 - Respect everyone: friends, colleagues, elders, teachers, authorities.

Still *at home* we learn to:
01 - Eat everything
02 - Do not talk with your mouth full
03 - Have personal hygiene
04 - Don't throw litter on the ground
05 - Help parents with their daily chores
06 - Don't take what doesn't belong to you
07 - Be content with what you have
08 - Work honestly to earn a living
09 - Dress with modesty

*At home* we still learn to:
01 - Get organized
02 - Take care of your belongings
03 - Do not touch other people's belongings
0 4 - Respect the rules,
05 - Speak your mother tongue(s), master your culture and spirituality , respect

Because *AT SCHOOL* teachers should teach: ♣️Mathematics ■ History ■ Geography ■ Afrikaans ■ Science ■ Technical Subjects ♣️ Physics ■ Biology ■ Philosophy ■ Sociology ■ Life Orientation ♣️ English

And only reinforce what the student has been taught *AT HOME*!!! Because it is from what we have learned *AT HOME* that the individual will be respected, that he will respect life.

Our top achiever Grade 7 is Tamzleigh De K**k. Tamzleigh went through many health challenges this year, despite this she continued to rise. At the drummie National Championship during July she excelled by being awarded the best leader in her category and she won many other categories. She represented South Africa at the Majorette World Championship in Croatia during August this year and obtained gold in her category. Besides all the hard practices she still excelled academically. Tamzleigh is a good example of the term "hardwork pays". Congratulations to Oko and Shurita for being placed 2nd and 3rd overall. Congratulations to all other recipients of diplomas, medals and trophies.
