Dietrich Moravian Primary School
Dietrich Moravian Primary School has a proud history of providing quality education to the impoveris
Operating as usual
Today was a very special day for all of those at Dietrich.
Raeesa, a resident in Philippi and a worker at the Fire Department, saw that often children in her community would have to walk to school with broken school shoes.
Raeesa saw the need and quickly came up with solutions. Today, Raeesa and the Fire Department came to our school to provide learners with school shoes. The children didn’t only get shoes on their feet but also had big smiles on their faces when they were entertained by the firefighters at the Fire Department and when they received the delicious soup made by women who live our community.
Thank you to Alderman JP Smith, Spar Ottery, the Fire Department, Community Members, Sharief Manuel and family, and especially Raeesa for organizing a memorable day for the learners at our school.
Today was also our Principal’s , Ms Fisher, birthday, and one of the best gifts for her was seeing the smiles on the children faces at the end of the programme.
Our children were blessed today by Kusasalethu Group and Spar. Not only were they given school bags, but those bags were filled with joy, inspiration and hope.
The guys from the Kusasalethu Group taught our kids the importance of dreaming and the value of education, while Charlene from Spar emphasized the value of respect.
Thank you Charlene, Spar and Kusasalethu Group!
The last few weeks have been full of celebrations at Dietrich Moravian Primary.
We celebrated World Read Aloud Day, World Cancer Day and yesterday we celebrated Valentine’s Day.
All of the days were huge hits with our kids, they enjoyed the stories told to them on World Read Aloud Day, they raised funds for a member of the staff/community on World Cancer Day and yesterday they had lots of fun with their red and white.
We would like to remind parents that tomorrow is our “Meet the Teacher” parent meeting and we urge parents to come and meet the teachers tomorrow!
Christmas came early to Dietrich Moravian Primary School!
The teachers, staff and teaching-assistants made sure that the children at school could feel the Christmas Spirit this year.
The kids were welcomed to school with Christmas carols, beautifully decorated tables and a big Christmas tree 🎄. The kids were then treated to a delicious lunch prepared by our beloved kitchen ladies, cupcakes and party packets to take home.
The day was made extra-special by KPMG who surprised every learner with a tasty ice-cream and a gift bag which has all of the essentials and more for the kids to do their very best next year.
Yesterday our school held its annual prize-giving ceremony.
Learners were awarded with certificates for academic achievements, progress, behaviour, helpfulness and attendance.
The learners enjoyed seeing who took the top spot in each grade and those learners were awarded with grocery hampers for their families. All of the other learners who won awards were also treated with something special.
A massive thank you to SPAR and Sanlam for always sponsoring and donating goodies to assist with days like these. The kids were smiling from ear-to-ear!
This week, our book club girls had their last book club meeting for the year.
The girls were treated with a beautiful story by Val Kohler. The story was named “verassing verassing”, and as the name suggests it was all about surprises.
The girls then discussed their wishes, dreams and what they would like to be surprised with.
The girls were then surprised by Mrs Pillay who made the girls burgers, trifle and treated a few of them to Christmas gifts.
As the year comes to an end, we would like to remind our parents of the important dates for next week. Our prize giving will be held on Tuesday the 4th of December and parents are welcome to come and support their children on that day.
Last week our Grade 2 and Grade 7 learners were rewarded by Claire and Nadine Sass, who took all of them on the Red Bus Tour to Hout Bay, Camps Bay and Green Point. The day that our learners were looking forward to for several months, had finally arrived!
The day started at Constantia Nek where the kids were treated to delicious donuts and cool drink before getting on the bus. The bus then drove around the mountain and stopped at Camps Bay, where the kids could dip their toes into the icy water at the beach. The day then ended at Green Point Park where the kids were treated to a delicious lunch, snacks, games and entertainment!
This was an unforgettable day for the kids. When the Grade 2's came back to school on Monday and began with their writing activity, almost every learner wrote about their exciting experience on Saturday.
A big thank you to Claire Sass, Nadine, Brandon Jacobs and all the other volunteers who blessed our learners with the most memorable day of their lives.
There was a great spirit at Dietrich Moravian Primary yesterday as we celebrated our diversity through song, music, dance and recitation.
We are fortunate to have so many different cultures at our school. We use this as an opportunity to encourage our learners to respect one another for who they are and to celebrate their differences.
Each grade wore different cultural clothes in order to celebrate the various cultures that we have at our school. Learners were also treated to trying foods representing the various cultures. They enjoyed it all - from magunyas to hoenderpootjies!
Days like these really stand out to our children and it is a blessing since they learn to respect and show tolerance to all those around them, despite the differences they may have.
We are preparing for our biggest fundraiser for the year: THE BAZAAR!
Our bazaar will be held tomorrow at school at 9AM.
There will be fresh vegetables, party packets, decadent cakes and mouth-watering braai and potjie for sale at the bazaar tomorrow. There will be music and lots of games for all of the family to enjoy.
Thank you for your ongoing support and see you tomorrow for a memorable day.
Mrs Bell’s Grade 3’s teach us that “niks is ontmoontlik in sy naam” in their beautiful song.
Nadine and Anthea shared encouraging words from the book that they are reading in book club.
The Grade R’s shining their light on the rest of the school!
Mrs Steer’s Grade R’s start the service off with a prayer.
Kinderfees celebrates the legacy of Susannah Kühnel, a young girl who gave her heart to the Lord and encouraged many other children in her community to do the same.
Today our school celebrated Kinderfees and the children were reminded of the story of Susannah and learnt how one person, no matter how young or old, can make a difference in their community.
The day was celebrated with prayers, singing and spiritual dancing. The kids then enjoyed their bolletjies and other sweet treats!
Today, during our assembly, Ms Fisher honoured Peter and Jerry with the Hero of the Week Award.
The two brothers were proud to share the story about how they heroically saved the community dog Meisie.
The little brothers showed kindness and compassion when they walked for miles to ensure that the sick dog, Meisie, could get the treatment that she needed.
We encourage all of our learners to show compassion and kindness towards others. It is awesome that they showed that compassion towards their pet too!
We are extremely proud of our children, Peter and Gerry Cedras, who despite their numerous challenges take time to care...
We are looking forward to honouring our Heroes of the Week, Peter and Gerry, at school this coming week.
GOING THE EXTRA MILE.
We were thinking of how best to illustrate how we put donors funds to good use and we came across two young brothers Peter aged 14 and Gerry aged 8 who had brought their very sick dog in for treatment.
These two heroic little souls had walked for “miles” from one of the local vegetable farms covering some really rough terrain urging and carrying their beloved dog Lady who they prefer to call “Meisie” which was busy dying all the way to us.
Gerry made the trip barefoot.
His brother Peter had saved R7 which he was going to put towards buying Gerry a pair of shoes but felt that the shoes could wait and opted to rather spend the money on saving their dog.
Needless to say, we gave Peter a full refund and found a pair of shoes for his younger brother Gerry in our Charity Shop which we presented to him as a token of our appreciation for their combined effort and admitted Lady.
These two local heroes need to be publically lauded for quite literally going the extra mile for their beloved dog. Their best friend and companion.
Lady who resembles an otherwise well cared for German Shepheard Cross which we estimate to be approximately 1 year old has since been examined and found to be suffering from tick-bite fever (Ehrlichia) which can be fatal especially if left untreated. So this intrepid pair almost certainly saved her life.
Upon admission, she was running a high temperature. Her mucous membranes were quite pale and her respiration rate accelerated. These are all very typical signs of tick-bite fever.
Since arrival, she has had a blood transfusion, been placed on a drip to keep her hydrated and been prescribed a course of medication.
It is too soon to know whether or not she will respond positively to treatment and to err on the side of caution has been given a guarded prognosis. For now, her condition can best be described as serious but stable.
The brothers clearly adore the dog and noticed that she was unwell when she went off her food. This is a sure sign that all was not well.
They did not want her to suffer and deteriorate so cleverly decided to bring her to us for assessment and treatment at their earliest opportunity. We NEVER turn any animal in need away.
What really impressed me about these two minors is that despite the odds they made a plan and unselfishly put Lady’s life and needs before anything else.
We hope that their devotion, compassion and initiative inspires other pet owners to take good care of their pets, to be alert to when their pets appear unwell and very importantly to treat their pets for ticks and fleas and to never hesitate to seek professional veterinary advise and care.
Our Mantra is Rescue the Mistreated / Save the Injured and Love the Abandoned and everyone who has had a hand in helping lady walked this talk.
Whatever we end up investing in saving Lady will be money well spent and warm our donors hearts. Yes, we will attempt to recover something from the indigent family but for now our primary focus is on Lady and we hope that this heart-warming case will inspire the public to get behind us in their numbers and show support for us so that we can continue to assist other deserving cases.
As Lady was admitted by minors we dispatched one of our nurses to the farm to discuss the case with their parents and have obtained written consent for us to use the attached photographs of the two boys for general media and educational purposes.
Gerry is wearing the Blue top and is the smallest of the pair.
