6 February 2015

To All Kyle Prep Parents  

Safety of the children We ask all parents not to drive into the school yard when bringing their children to or collecting them from school, especially when it is raining.  We would rather have wet children than dead children. 

The biggest danger occurs when reversing your vehicle; you will not be able to see a small child behind you. 

Please keep our children safe, it might be your child! 

Board of Governors We welcome Mr Charles Chando to the Board and we believe his input and knowledge will be for the better of our school.  

The Board would like to thank the parents for their contribution to the successes of 2014, in a very difficult economic climate. 

The  CABS School Card will be introduced next term as an alternative way of paying school fees.  

PTA annual general meeting will be held at 5pm this evening at the Pavilion.  Please come and support the PTA.

Valentine's Day Because the children are travelling on Friday 13 February, this fund raiser will be held the day before, Thursday 13 Feb.  Everybody should come to school dressed in red, white or black; any combination of these colours.  Please do not buy new clothes for your children as this is just a fun day.  The charge is $1 per child.  

Unknown deposits We have three of these:  Zinwa dated 15.01.15; Wasara dated 31.01.15 and Dadiso dated 02.02.15.  If you know anything about these please bring a copy of the deposit slip to the bursar.

Sport Our cricketers had a slow start to the season last weekend, with the 1st team winning 1 out of 4 games at the CBC Junior Schools Cricket Tournament, and the colts losing all 3 of their matches.  All the best next time boys. 

The girls, on the other hand, started the year off on a high note with both the fillies and seniors winning all their matches.  Well done girls!  

On Tuesday afternoon we held our inter house cross country competition.  All the children from grade three to seven participated and enjoyed the challenge.  The Eagles were victorious clinching 125 points, very closely followed by the Falcons (by one race!) with 120 points, while the Kites came last with 110 points.  Well done to all the children and a big thank you to the parents who came to support. 

Our 1st team played cricket against Runyararo Primary School on Wednesday afternoon.  Kyle Prep was put in to bat, putting up a decent score of 83 after 15 overs; Runyararo Primary was bowled out for 41 runs.  Kyle won by 42 runs.  Well done guys. 

Our 1st team tennis girls play against the Kyle College under 14 team tomorrow at Kyle College.  The games begin at 8.45am and you are all welcome to go and support them. 

All our cricket and tennis teams play against Goldridge Primary School in Kwekwe on Friday and then they play in Gweru on Saturday against Midlands Christian School.  All the best boys and girls!

The CABS School Card, for paying school fees from second term, will be presented. The objectives of the Parent Teachers Association should be: -a. To promote understanding and fellowship between the school and the parents, with a view to sharing difficulties and to advance the physical, moral, spiritual and academic interests of the pupils. 
b. To provide opportunities for parents and to encourage them to enter into the activities of the school.
