Hippo and Goose Family Festival 2017.

Dear Parents

Hippo and Goose Family Festival 2017.

facebook_prifileIt is with great excitement that we are proud to announce that our Annual Huttenpark Carnival has had a facelift and that we have decided to move it to the Grey Goose Farm Lodge. It will have a new name: “The Hippo and Goose Family Festival”

We believe moving this festival to a bigger venue will allow us to make this a bigger community event and we hope to have all the support that we have had in the past.

The Festival will take place on the 21 October 2017. It will start at 9:00 and we will be busy until 19:00.

We have a full stage program that includes local singers and bands and we will end off with “Fatman” from The Voice SA. This will be the ideal way to end off the day.

We will have our traditional Flea Market and some very exciting exhibitions on show during the day. Please contact Mrs De Jager at school if you are interested in a stall or would like to show off your business on the day.

For the learners, we have our ever popular Giant Inflatables. Learners have received their forms and can ‘pay off’ the inflatables ticket with their class teachers. This will be an amount of R100 and they will be allowed to go on all the inflatables during the day. Please take note that there will be water slides on the day so pack in an extra set of dry clothes.

At the end of the day the learners and adventurous parents will be allowed to enjoy the exciting Colour Fest in the arena. Learners can order the colour powder from their class teacher at R6 a packet. All orders will be sent to the register classes on the Friday before the festival. There will be limited stock available for sale on the day of the festival.

With the full entertainment programme, parents will be allowed to enjoy themselves in the beer tent, looking out over the stage area.

For the fitness fanatics we will be hosting a Mountain Bike Challenge and a Trail Run in the morning.

Then there is our famous Hippo-Run where we give away a R10 000 cash prize on the day. Learners will receive 1 book per family this year and we ask all families to please support this project.

Due to the high quality of our performers this year we have to charge an entrance fee of R30 per person.

As always, we will be asking parents to support us in this endeavour. Not only on the day but also to promote it as much as you can. Please help us share the information with your friends and family. Look out for the advertisement on Facebook and share it among your friends.

Huttie Greetings

Hippo and Goose Familiefees 2017

Geagte Ouers

facebook_prifileHippo and Goose Familiefees 2017

Dit is met groot opgewondenheid dat ons aankondig dat ons jaarlikse Huttenpark Karnaval ʼn gedaanteverwisseling ondergaan. Ons het besluit om die geleentheid te skuif na die “Grey Goose Farm Lodge” en die geleentheid sal ook voortaan bekend staan as die “Hippo and Goose Familiefees”

 

Ons glo dat die skuif van die fees na ʼn groter plek, meer geleentheid tot uitbreiding en groter gemeenskapsbetrokkenheid teweeg sal bring.

 

Die Fees sal plaasvind op 21 Oktober 2017. Dit sal om 9:00 begin en aanhou tot 19:00.

 

Ons het ʼn besige verhoogprogram wat verskeie plaaslike kunstenaars insluit. Ons gaan die dag op ʼn hoogtepunt afsluit wanneer “Fatman” van “The Voice – South Africa” gaan optree.

 

Ons gaan weer ons tradisionele Vlooimark aanbied en dit ook uitbrei met interessante uitstallings gedurende die dag. Indien u sou belangstel in ʼn stalletjie om items te verkoop, produkte uit te stal of u maatskappy te bemark kan u gerus vir Mev. De Jager by die skool kontak.

 

Die leerders kan weer heeldag baljaar op die reuse “Inflatables”. Die koste hieraan verbonde is R100 en sluit ook gratis toegang in. Ons het hierdie jaar ʼn inisiatief geloods waar leerders die bedrag met behulp van ʼn vorm kan afbetaal by hulle klasonderwysers. Let wel dat daar meer wateraktiwiteite gaan wees, so pak ʼn stel droë klere in!

 

Aan die einde van die dag sal die leerders en avontuurlustige ouers deelneem aan ʼn “Colourfest” in die arena. Leerders kan hulle kleurpoeier teen R6 ʼn pakkie aankoop by hulle klasonderwyser. Dit sal by die lekkergoedstalletjie by die karnaval afgehaal kan word op die dag.

 

Ons propvol verhoogprogram sal ook vanuit ʼn biertent geniet kan word.

 

Vir ons fiksheid bewustes sal daar die oggend ʼn Bergfietsresies en ʼn “Trail Run” aangebied word.

 

Dan is daar natuurlik ook ons nou al bekende “Hippo Run” waar ʼn kontantprys van R10 000 weggegee word. Hierdie jaar sal elke leerder nie ʼn boekie ontvang nie, maar slegs een boekie per gesin. Ons vra dat alle gesinne asseblief hierdie projek sal ondersteun.

 

As gevolg van die kwaliteit van die kunstenaars is ons hierdie jaar genoodsaak om R30 toegang per persoon te vra.

 

Ons hoop dat ons soos in die verlede op ons ouers kan staatmaak om hierdie projek te ondersteun. Ons vra dat ouers sal help om die dag te bemark en inligting rakende die dag op hulle sosiale media platforms sal deel.

 

Huttie Groete

CIRCULAR 6 OF 2017

2017-03-15

 

Dear Parents

CIRCULAR 6 OF 2017

 

Please take not of the following important dates, times and other information:

 

1.    SCHOOL DATES & TIMES:

 

Friday    17 March

School closes at 12:00 due to long weekend

Monday  20 March

Skool Holiday. No aftercare at Huttenpark.

Tue       21 March

Human Rights Day: Public Holiday

Wed      22 March

Doughnut sales R5 for welfare project

Thurs      23 March

Rugby, hockey & netball matches vs Pionier Primary from

Volksrust. Skool closes at 12:45.  Matches start at 13:30 except 1st Netball which will start at 12:30. Only u/9-u/13.

Friday   24 March

School closed for learners due to speechmaking contest which takes place at our school for the KZN province.

Aftercare will be open for the whole day.

Thurs      8 June

Wintersport vs NRS (date was moved from 25 March)

Fri   15 June

New Soap Box Derby date 15 June from 12:00 to 18:00.  Potjiekos/braai stalls will be available for parents.

 

2.    PARENTS WAITING IN FRONT OF CLASSROOMS:

Please refrain from waiting in front of your child’s classroom for him/her to dismiss.  Make an arrangement to meet at the gate or on the pavilion.

 

3.    WAITING CLASS AND OBEDIENCE:

The waiting class is a free service which we provide for your comfort.  There are however learners who are guilty of bad behaviour during this time.  We reserve the right to refuse to allow these children in the waiting class if they continue to cause havoc on the playground.

Please speak to your child/ren regarding their behaviour in general, regarding self-discipline and obedience.  Many children don’t listen to teachers when spoken to the first time, which results in teachers and assistants having to repeat themselves on numerous occasions.

This is a principle which should be strengthened at home as well.  Parents should also just give instructions once.

 

 

 

4.    CADII SCHOOL CASES:

Learners who make use of these cases and travel to school by bus are causing a problem because these cases are so large.  The bus cannot accommodate the children and their suitcases.  We request that you rather make use of the school bag, which can be put on a child’s lap.

Other learners are loading their cases to the maximum and these cases have become so heavy that they cannot lift them when going up and down the stairs.  Please ensure that your child/ren only pack/s the books for the day or leaves them in their lockers.

 

Thank you for your attention to these matters.

 

 

Regards

Vrydag   24 Maart

Dond       8 Junie

Wintersport vs NRS (datum is verskuif van 25 Maart)

Vrydag    15 Junie

Nuwe datum vir kaskardag. 12:00 tot 18:00.  Potjiekos/braaistalletjies sal weer vir ouers beskikbaar gestel word.

 

2.    OUERS VOOR KLASSE:

Ons doen ‘n beroep op u as ouers om nie voor u kind se klas te wag vir u kind om te verdaag nie.  Tref  ‘n reëling met u kind om hom/haar by die skoolhek of op die pawiljoen te ontmoet.

 

3.    WAGKLAS EN GEHOORSAAMHEID:

Die wagklas is ‘n gratis diens wat die skool aanbied om u by te staan.  Daar is egter leerlinge wat hulle swak gedra in die wagklas en ‘n probleem vir die toesighouers en ander leerlinge word.  Ons behou die reg om diesulkes te verbied om die wagklas by te woon indien hulle gedrag so voortduur.

 

Praat asseblief met u kind/ers oor hul gedrag in die algemeen, self-dissipline en gehoorsaamheid.  Ons ondervind ‘n tendens van leerlinge wat nie die eerste keer luister as onderwysers praat nie, wat dan veroorsaak dat werk en opdragte oor en oor verduidelik moet word. 

U moet asseblief ook hierdie beginsel by die huis toepas sodat hulle in die gewoonte kom om die eerste keer te luister.

 

 

4.    CADII TASSE:

Leerlinge wat van hierdie tasse gebruik en met die bus skooltoe en terug ry veroorsaak probleme vir ons, met die dat die tas so groot en lomp is.  Ons busse het nie die spasie om die tas ook te akkommodeer nie, want ‘n leerlinge kan nie die tas op hul skoot sit nie. Probeer om eerder van ‘n seil skoolsak gebruik te maak.

Ander leerlinge weer is geneig om die tasse te oorlaai en sukkel geweldig met die op-en afgaan by die trappe.  Hulle moet steeds leer om net die dag se boeke in te pak en die ander in hul toesluitkaste of tuis te laat. 

Verder word die tasse as stampkarretjies en renmotors op die gange gebruik.  Moedig u kinders aan om die tasse ook verantwoordelik te gebruik, veral gesien in die lig van die hoë koste van die “motors”.

 

Dankie vir u aandag aan die belangrike sake
