LITTLE SAINTS

Welcome to the Little Saints

This is the beginning of the exciting and informative journey in your child’s life. New friends, new teachers, art play, puzzle activities, socialising in the playground and Gross and Fine motor development will now form part of their busy day.

The day begins at 08:00 for our Grade Rs, 8:15 for our Grade 0s and at 8:30 for our Grade 00s. All three grades finish the school day at 12:30 at which time Aftercare commences for those who require this service.

 

AFTER CARE

Aftercare

Aftercare is offered from 12:00 to 18:00 daily.

There are two options for aftercare – half day, where the child is collected at 15:00 or full day where the child may be collected by no later than 18:00. Cooked lunch is an optional extra or parents can pack an extra lunch. The children remain in their classrooms to eat their lunch, and are then escorted to their aftercare venue for a rest period. Story time and outdoor and indoor activities fill up the afternoon. A snack and a drink are provided at 15:00.

HOLIDAY CARE

Holiday Care

Holiday Care is available during most school holiday periods.

It runs from 7.00am to 6.00pm daily. Meals are provided and are included in the cost as well as different activities each day such as a treasure hunt, face painting, bicycle days, water fun days, making and baking activities, jumping castles and arts and crafts. Please note that there is an additional fee for Holiday Care.

OUTINGS & EXTRA MURALS

Outings and Extra Murals

Grade 0 and R pupils go on one outing per term of which one of the highlights is the bus ride! We only hire buses with seatbelts, and make sure that each child is belted in securely before we leave. Some of outings have been to the following venues: the Aquarium, the Planetarium, the Iziko Museum, Green Point Park, the Baxter Theatre and a domestic animal farm in Durbanville.

The Grade 00s are too small to go out, so visitors are invited in. These include puppet shows, the Lilliput Players, Drum Kidz and the Reptile Man to name a few. Once a term, all the grades get together for one show or visit.

Extra murals take place after school. An updated programme can be obtained from the College.

UNIFORMS

Uniforms

Our Preschool uniform is practical and hard wearing. It consists of a navy T-shirt with the Pre-School logo, navy shorts with white takkies or brown leather sandals in the summer. A long sleeved T-Shirt, a fleecy sweat shirt and navy tracksuit pants are added in the winter months. These are available from ARC Sportswear in Killarney Gardens.
