The circus theme set the tone for an auspicious day that combined creativity and the spirit of achievement. In CityKidz tradition, each learner was honoured for their unique talents and accomplishments throughout the 2023 academic year.
The sun shone brightly on the astro turf of the school playground as the Grade RR learners gathered excitedly, clutching their beloved teddy bears tightly in their arms.
Our inner-city school children had the opportunity to experience the magic of pantomime for the first time yesterday.
This year's General Knowledge quiz held at CityKidz Primary was a testament to the power of collective intelligence, sportsmanship, and the joy of learning.
What a horribly, scary, AWESOMELY, SPOOKY day. Ominous clouds on the horizon, then the pitter-patter of raindrops in the early hours of the morning, set the mood for a spooky Halloween. Children arrived, incredibly dressed in their favourite costumes. Several girls appeared looking like Wednesday Addams, alongside Ghostface, Freddy Krueger and many others dressed as phantoms and monsters.
Grade 4A children selling vegetables from their Perfect Pallet garden. This is a great way to teach them about the importance of growing their own food, entrepreneurship, and financial responsibility. It can also be a fun and rewarding experience for the whole family at home. Start your kiddie garden!
All hands were on deck, including our team of prefects, student teachers and maintenance staff. From early on, the smell of wood smoke made tummies rumble in anticipation of the braaied meat to be enjoyed later. To much excitement Papa Simon, Lloyd, Enzo, Reuben and a host of other eager hands set up the jumping castles. Parents started arriving with a dazzling and mouthwatering array of delicious treats.
The Wag 'n Bietjie trip was an excellent opportunity to develop Grade 4s as individuals, in terms of becoming both independent and responsible people. They would be exposed to situations that need prompt decision making, taking a risk in a controlled environment and of course conquering their challenges outside the classroom setting.
CityKidz's Mad Hatters civvies day was themed after the Mad Hatter from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Just like the Mad Hatter who is known for his eccentric personality children arrived wearing the most magnificent, colourful and creative hats.
CityKidz NEVER DISAPPOINTS !!!! Civvies day is always an exciting time for our learners and today was extra special for our school, as all our learners showed their support for a good cause. It is always so heart-warming to see how our CityKidz family comes together to support a good cause. Our pet food drive has amazingly increased, and we have you as parents and our CityKidz learners to thank for that! We can only imagine the happy hearts and happy kitty and doggy tummies there’s going to be when we hand it over to our pet charities.
