PREP LIBRARY TRANSFORMED FOR READATHON!

There was great excitement at the Prep School assembly yesterday as we officially launched our Readathon! Supporting our theme for the term, “Growth”, the Readathon theme this year is “Growth Mindset.”

The teachers performed a play about ‘The Rainbow Fish’ that had to grow and learn that sharing makes everyone happy and creates a feeling of love amongst all.

Ms Moritz used the example of the famous ‘Tortoise and Hare’ race, reminding the girls that even though something may seem impossible, we can achieve anything by not giving up and trying our best.

Furthermore, our library has been transformed into a magical and colourful floral wonderland, and girls are encouraged to not only visit the library but also to participate in our Readathon book exchange.

Books can be dropped off in the library until Friday, 3 August, and these will be donated to schools in need.

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
