Grade 5 knit-athon for charity

At the end of last Term, the annual Grade 5 Knit-athon was held in the Technology Classroom. The Grade 5s came to class with thirty stitches cast onto their needles, and loads of enthusiasm and excitement! For many of the girls, this was there first attempt at knitting, and moms, grans and au pairs were there to assist with the process of teaching, untangling and encouraging.  The morning produced approximately 12 completed squares, with loads more on the way. The squares are donated to the Grey Ladies Association of St Saviour’s, where they are made up into blankets and donated to charitable organisations.

Last year over 850 squares were produced, and the girls are aiming to equal or better this amount.

A huge thank you to all those who assisted on the day.

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.
