Familiar Faces Around Acacia
A warm welcome back to the de Wet family - (L to R) Kirsty, Danny, Lizzy & Phil. The de Wet's were an Acacia family from years gone by, both Lizzy & Danny passing through our fair school in times past. Always good to see old familiar faces!! Thanks, too, to the family for the donation of a pile of books for our library - so appreciated!!!
Another Welcome Visitor !!
A huge, big thanks to Vanessa Neilson and SAFPAR for the kind donation of the takings of the Auction at the Zambezi Rafting Festival. We were delighted to receive a total of K11154 towards our fancy new piano.
What's Going On ???
Running repairs to the generator room are racing ahead - Should be back up and running by the weekend.
Big shout-out to Teacher Pat and the Gr 4 / 5's for tidying up the library after the bomb!! Looks great again!!
Wild things happening at the Wildlife Club with Coach Brendan and Luis - Look what we found!!
Music is alive and pumping at Acacia - thanks, in the main, to Moses Music !!
And look what we got!!!! Thanks to the hawk-eye of an old Acacia friend, Vivienne Simpson, who found the piano through a contact of hers. It's on its way up from Bulawayo to Vic Falls this week - if anyone can help with getting the instrument across the river, we'd love to hear from you?
A new and welcome feature in every classroom from today !!!
