The HIGH FLYER 13 February 2009 West Road North – morning drop off change This is a reminder that the Oval will no longer be open for parking after half term. Please pay close attention to the car park guidelines that Redhill sent out a few weeks ago, to ensure a safe and steady flow of traffic. Lightning – remind your children about safety precautions Parents please remind your children about safety during thunderstorms while at school. We’ve told them at school, but following up at home would help tremendously. Some of the tips below come to us from bhpbilliton, courtesy of a concerned Redhill parent, and are enhanced by Redhill-relevant tips. 1. Seek shelter immediately. 2. Avoid water if outdoors and can’t get to safety immeidately – this includes the puddles that develop on our field, and which are a great temptation to our Prep kids 3. Avoid open spaces – Do NOT cross the Oval Summit, Veldtuin or Outspan. 4. Some unsafe places are: underneath canopies, gazebos, near trees. Do not seek shelter under trees. Avoid unprotected shelters like bus stops. 5. Avoid tall isolated objects like trees, poles and light posts. 6. Avoid metal fences. 7. Make a collection-time ‘lightning plan’ with your child, particularly if he/she is in the Junior Prep. Agree with your child that you will look for him/her in a particular place, should a storm break out at his/her regular collection time. Many little ones panic and remain outdoors in high risk areas, because they are worried that their parents or caregiver will not find them. Term 1 2009 closing date – Change (reminder) Please note that the closing date for Term 1 2009 has been changed to Wednesday April 8 (normal time) to accommodate travel plans prior to the Easter holiday. Alumni News One of our Redhill past pupils, Faheem Chaudhry, High School Deputy Head Boy in 2007, has been selected for political grooming under the DA’s leadership program. The program selects 10-12 promising youngsters each year, all between the ages of 18 and 35, and puts them on a leadership fast track. Faheem, currently studying politics and philosophy at UCT, is one of the youngest leaders selected. Congratulations to… … Katelyn Braby, who was one of 12 girls selected from her Dance school to compete in Dallas at a convention with some of the top Choreographers like Mia Michaels from "So you think you can dance". They also attended Ailey and Broadway classes in New York went to numerous shows. This was indeed a fantastic privilege for South African dancers to be exposed to such talent and to dance with some of the best dancers in the world.
