Soliloquy on our Tuckshop

Nearly half-past three! I wonder what there'll be,
Yesterday's sweets were rather pasty,
Today's I hope will be more tasty.
I find I have two shillings to spare,
I hope my favourites will be there.
Creamy toffee I love to chew,
But Turkish Delight are not very new;
The "New Look" though are quite the fashion,
and Chocolate Logs are really smashin'!
Croonies are our special delight
We could eat them morning, noon and night.
Looking at the sweet display,
One's decisions begin to sway;
Are those Peppermint Crisps I see?
Glee Bars? Flakes? What shall it be?
O dear my turn has come at last,
I'll have to make my mind up fast!

Dear Past Ellerslie Girls & Friends of Ellerslie,

The successful bid by the Phyllis Jowell Day School on behalf of the Jewish Community of the Western Cape
is now subject to review by the Cape Provincial government after consideration of written
representations from interested parties received before 9 June 2016.

The purchase of this property by the PJJDS represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to maintain and improve the status of the existing building which is a National Monument.

Kindly support the sale of this property to the PJJDS School by “signing” this petition:

To do so is very easy and takes only a few seconds.

Thank you

Where the blue wave rolls in deeply
From the wide Atlantic Sea
Sheltered by the mountain
Majestic, calm & free
There stands our Alma Mater,
the school of all our pride
Our Ellerslie, our joy, our hope
Our teacher, friend and guide

To Ellerslie we dedicate
with faith and trust our youth
to follow where she leads us
to knowledge, wisdom, truth
then lift our voices loud and clear
to make the echoes ring
per aspera ad astra
with joyfull hearts we sing.
