031 262 1630 23rd June 2009 Dear Parents and Learners, The 2nd term has been an exceptionally busy term. A time where your child becomes well entrenched into the schooling year and it is at this time that they start displaying a lack of self-confidence in realizing that the work is getting harder and that they are finding it difficult to grasp the level and work load set before them. It is through these difficult times that it is imperative that you the parents work with us very closely by enabling your child to cope on all levels at school. We certainly have seen this throughout the term and are so blessed in having parents who care. So thank you for all your efforts which at times are not easy. Having signed the reports, you can exceptionally proud of your child. Let these holidays bring about joy, great fun and family togetherness. We look forward to a productive and successful 3rd term which will be filled with excitement. School commences on Tuesday 21st July 2009.

Remember: On break up day (Thursday 25th June) there will be civvies (R10) and a braai. Please don t forget to bring your braai meat. We will be closing at 11h00.

Mr Dave Pughe-Parry an ADHD Adult who spoke to both the learners and the staff of Wendon Academy recently will be back in Durban to do a presentation to our parents and anyone who is interested in attending on Wednesday 26th August at 18h30 in the Wendon Hall. A RSVP form will be sent out early next term. The cost of this talk will be R20 per person. Spacing is limited and it will be on a first come first serve basis. I would encourage everyone to make an effort to attend his talk. This talk is not only to parents who have ADHD children, but who are experiencing difficulties with their child. Dave has some fundamental rules that will be guaranteed to help.

Wow its over, we raised a whop ping R25 360.00 To Mrs Carol du Preez and Mrs Elna Bachmann who sit on our Wendon Parents Forum, a huge thank you for your endless hours dedicated to making the golf day the success it was by rounding up the 4-ball golf players and being relentless in your endeavours to bring in donations and prizes from our listed sponsors.
