24 October 2014

Dear Parents,

Please take note of the following:

ANA 2014
Annual National Assessments are written as a measure of the national progress in Mathematics and Languages and are used as a way forward to improve learning in the SA context.  The mark does not contribute towards the Formal Assessments for promotion.  Your child’s marks and the grade average have been sent home with your child today.  National Averages have not yet been announced.

Head of the Lilyfontein Pre-Primary, Clarissa Fisher, will be hosting a tour for all potential Grade 0 parents for 2015 on Wednesday, 29 October at 07:30. Please note that bookings are essential. Please book with Kerry at 043 737 4258 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The event incorporates a 15km run/walk under the auspices of Border Athletics; a 55km, 40km and 15km and for the less extreme, a 5km run/walk/cycle. This is a day out for the whole family so save the date in the diary and keep an eye on the Tomato Trot facebook group for more information on the routes and entry process.

The PTA would like to inform all parents of our last meeting for 2014. This will be held in the staff room at 18:00 on 5 November. The PTA would like to invite all parents that would like to be more involved with next year’s functions and activities to join us.  Come and see what it is all about and also bring your own fundraising ideas to the table for discussion.

Due to an inclement weather forecast, the Gardening Day has been postponed to 3 December. Please remember to send plants before the end of October so we can plan the gardens. Pupils will earn house points (Orange/Navy) for each plant they bring. Each Grade’s garden will be judged on Wednesday 25, March 2015 and the winning grade will be rewarded with a trip to Hemmingways Mall for a movie, popcorn and cold drink on Monday, 30 April 2015.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully
