DEVASTATING FIRE

By the Grace of God our school did not incur any damage despite the flames coming within 50 metres of the vegetable garden & play area. Our hearts and prayers go out to the residents who lost their homes and animals.

PENGUIN KIDZ – FIRST DAY @ PRIMARY SCHOOL

Boys and girls who graduated in 2018 and is now in Grade 1. Take note how Proud & excited they were. They looked stunning - The committee, staff & I are very proud of our little graduates.

PREVIOUS PIKKEWYNTJIES (PENGUIN KIDZ) PRIMARY SCHOOL RESULTS

At the end of the school year, the children who previously attended our school, rush to show me their reports. They all did extremely well, some achieving the highest grade/score “7” in all subjects for which they received an R100 prize. It is these results which make our work worthwhile & demonstrates the importance of ‘EARLY CHILD DEVELOPMENT’.

WISH LIST:

Our Second-hand shop is in dire need of crockery, pots & pans, cutlery, electrical appliances, linen etc. For those who are not aware, the funds generated at the shop cover some of our expenses including 2 teachers salary. It is, therefore, imperative that we keep the shop well stocked.
