From the Principal's desk

Dear Rietondale family

 It is hard to believe how quickly my first six months as principal have passed and come to an end.  I would like to thank you for your faith, trust and commitment to Rietondale Primary.

We respect the sacrifices each family makes and will continue to put your children first in everything we do.  This was a very busy time and you, as partners in education, played a great role in making it a success.

 Congratulations to all the prize-winners acknowledged at the Prize-giving ceremonies.  You made both the School and your parents proud.  Continue to work hard in the new year.  I believe that all our students worked hard during the year and that their efforts will pay off in their promotion to the next grades.

At the end of Term 3, we greeted Mr Hanyane after serving the School for many years as a Support Staff member.  We hope he enjoys his retirement.  Unfortunately, at the end of this year, we will also bid farewell to Mrs Van Aardt, Miss Masengi and Mrs Van der Walt.  We would like to thank them for their loyal dedication and commitment to the School.  We wish them all of the best for the future.

A special ‘Thank you’ to the PTA for the Christmas Market that was enjoyed by many.  To the PTA Angels, for their time and effort with covering books, we appreciate you.  The ‘Mothers Who Care’ pray continuously for the School and make a huge difference in our daily lives.  They are joined by a prayer group of learners who come together to pray for their fellow learners.

We would like to wish our Grade 7 learners all the best as they journey onto new adventures.  May all their dreams come true.  May they be successful in all that they do.

In closing, I would like to thank all parents and educators who commit their time and energy every day towards creating a nurturing environment in which our children can thrive!

Please be sure to take time as a family to talk, play and pray together.  Those families who are not returning to our School will continue to be in our prayers as they make their journeys to new places.  To those returning, we are praying for a safe return to our family.

May you have a blessed festive season!

 Miss P M Goosen
