FROM THE OFFICE

Mothers hold their children’s hands for a while but their hearts forever.

We are filled with respect and gratitude towards all our mothers! Nothing compares to the contribution a mother makes in her child’s life. Thank you ‘Moms’ for your love, strength and motivation. You are unsung superheroes! Happy Mother’s Day!

 

YADAH

This week we pray for friendship. We are thankful that our first and best friend is Jesus, who also views us as friends. We know that we are never alone. We also pray for guidance to be a good friend to others.
The following prayer sums it up well:
Dear Lord
Teach me to love others the way You first loved me. As I build relationships with others, let them see You in the extent of my generosity, the authenticity of my kindness, and the depths of my love. All of those things are only possible through You, the God who abides with me and calls me friend.
Amen

DONATE YOUR SENSORY BOARD

We have been astounded with the wonderful talented children at Midstream! The Grade 6s recently built sensory boards as part of their technology project. We would like to save these wonderful projects from gathering dust in a cupboard somewhere. The Grade 6s are welcome to gift these projects to the school, as we would love to donate the sensory boards to various institutions where disadvantaged children can benefit from them.

If your Grade 6 child’s sensory board is still in good condition and you would like to make a difference in an under-privileged child’s life, please send it to Mrs. Piekaar’s or Mrs. De Villiers’s classrooms.

 

GOLF 2023

The school would like to give our learners the opportunity to play golf with their friends on Tuesdays. Learners who are therefore able to play nine holes on their own, are welcome to join the golfers on Tuesdays where they will be able to play under supervision. This arrangement will start on 9 May and will continue until 6 June 2023. Players must report to the Golf Course at 14:00.
THESE SESSIONS ARE NOT COACHING SESSIONS but provide learners, who can already play, an opportunity to play. For further information, please contact Mr. Kotze on (012) 661 0724 or email schalkk@midstreamcollege.co.za. (Cost: R60-00 per player per afternoon)

Should there be any learners who would like to start golf, or who require lessons, please enquire at the Golf Course.
Contact Details: Patrick O’Brien – 082 992 13 14 or via email patrick@pobgolf.co.za

FOOD BAG PROJECT
MIDSTREAM CARE - GETS INVOLVED


Each year, Midstream College Primary School reaches out to families in need by providing basic non-perishable food and other household items.

Together with KSM, we would like to distribute food optimally and effectively to families in need. Food bags are filled by Midstream families every month and delivered to the school, whereafter they are handed over to KSM for distribution. Alternatively, you can choose to sponsor bags during the year by paying the amount per bag directly into the church’s account each month.

This is an easy way to get involved in charity work and involve your children in a caring project. If you wish to support this project, please follow the link below.

YADAH

When: Every Tuesday
Time: 14:00 – 15:00
Place: Mrs Carina de Villiers’s classroom (Block 4, on the top floor)

The Yadah is an extracurricular activity that falls under the cultural umbrella and will therefore also form part of the Big Brag at the end of the year. This group aims to create a safe, happy place for all learners (Grades 1 – 7) where they can learn more about God, praise and worship Him and be actively involved in outreach projects.

Each “session” will consist of the following:
• Message from the Bible
• Praise and worship God through song
• Practical aspects of a project / game / fun activities.

Yadah means to praise God with outstretched hands. We want to honour God by taking action and helping through projects that will truly make a difference in the lives of others.

If your child would like to get involved in Yadah, send him / her along every Tuesday at 14:00.
