weekly snapshots

Micklefield Term 1, 2022  has begun! Such a buzz of excitement around the school as the girls settle in to this brand new school year.

The Grade 6s spent a lovely morning at Kirstenbosch as an introduction to the themes that will be covered this term. They explored medicinal plants, drew maps and spent time in nature reflecting on 2021 and setting goals for 2022.

What a fine place to spend a sewing lesson.. in the cool shade in the new outdoor classroom, gifted to the school by the Grade 7s of 2021.
