"The group work in the first term has been a huge success story. We often have incredible breakthroughs in individual therapy, however, this term was testament to the impact group work and discussion groups can have.

On the feedback forms many learners shared how their eyes were opened and their voices heard. I believe everyone could take something from these conversations.

GBV is a regular and everyday occurrence in this community, where violence and trauma are somewhat expected. Being able to identify our own stories through the #GBV clips that shared Themba and Mary's stories helped learners to identify their emotions when these thing happen (at school, classroom, playground, with friends) and how they can respond to these emotions, whether the emotions belong to themselves or their friends.

The group of older learners, delved deeper into gender discrimination within their home and community environment, speaking to how gender roles in the house also perpetuate unhelpful beliefs and ideas around gender, which could lead to violence as well.

We designed a CK poster that illustrated every grade's approach to dealing with #bullying. This prompted learners in Grade 6 & 7 to create anti-bullying posters for their school, being creative and standing up collectively against bullying." Laurian Furneaux Visagie, CK Social Worker, Ysterplaat Primary School

Our "Stop Bullying and GBV" campaign is sponsored by National Development Agency - NDA and Solidarity Fund

Grade 7s were not at school on Friday, can someone please confirm that as per the Presidents address the school will be closed on Monday, and grade 7s returning in 11 August 2020?

Twice a week, my team in Cape Town has been preparing enough nourishing soup to feed the entire Grade 7 year group at Ysterplaat Primary School in Cape Town, which is delivered to the school by the NG Kerk/ Church, Tamboerskloof. Many of these childrens' parents lost their jobs during the Covid-19 lockdown and their kids go hungry far too often. Every delivery has been so much appreciated, and I was very humbled to receive an email from the school this week, personally thanking me for our contribution.

If you would like to help the Innovation Studio to keep making hearty soups every week, you can donate your fresh ingredients in aid of our cause. Please contact Carin at [email protected] to find out how. WOOLWORTHS

Last term, we were lucky enough, to be able to introduce coding and robotics to some of our learners (and our staff members). They completed an introductory course and received certificates for this.

The grade 6 learners learnt about the history of mandalas this term. They used design principles and their knowledge of the 7 elements of art, to design relief mandalas.

They used toilet rolls to create beautiful works of art.

William Kentridge

Our Grade 7 learner are busy with their art projects where they must create a self-portrait inspired by William Kentridge's work.

Self portraits are their way of documenting how they see themselves, and how they want others to perceive them. For some, it's all about experimentation and trying new things.

Can't wait to see what they create.


The Gr 7 learners had so much fun today during their dance assessment.

Thank you Mr Angelo for always hyping up the kids and teaching them some new moves.
