FAMILY GROUP FUN

At our Prep School, ‘Family Groups’ have been set up from Grade 1 – 7. Each Family Group is comprised of 2 girls from each grade with an assigned staff member who facilitates group sessions every alternate Wednesday. The aim of these Family Groups is to create a connection and a shared ‘sisterhood’ across the school. Studies show that in schools where similar groupings have been created it has decreased the incidence of bullying and created a greater sense of belonging. 

Today the Family Groups met for an informal break time picnic which was led by the Grade 7 ‘moms’. This was a wonderful opportunity for the girls to get to know their Family Groups better and share their treats!

School Song

We are assembled here in love,
We are united, we care for one another.
The greatest lesson of all is the one
That teaches us to live together, together.

Refrain:
Everyone’s a spark and in the night
Together we make a light, a fire burning bright
Ad Dei Gloriam; Inkosi mayibongwe:
To the glory of our God: this is what we believe.

In times of trouble we support
Our fellows; we are taught to be there for our friends.
And all around us, there will be
That special unity, that binds us all together.

If we come back after many years,
We will think fondly of the things that we remember,
And the friends that we made then,
These will be friends forever, forever.

By Thandi Siebert, Head Girl 1993
