In total, our students achieved 31 distinctions, with the top achievers as follows: SIOBHAN WELCH ­ 5 DISTINCTIONS DAVID SZKE ­ 3 DISTINCTIONS TAMARYN TREGES ­ 3 DISTINCTIONS In addition, both David's and Tammy's CAT (Computer Applications Technology) marks were in the top 1% NATIONALLY, as were Siobhan's English and Life Orientation marks!

Our sincere congratulations to the Class of 2010, and we wish you all every success in your future endeavours, whatever they may be!

We would like to welcome back all of our Staff and pupils for a new Academic Year ­ It's great to see that you all returned from holiday safely. A very special welcome to the "LITTLE ANGELS" in Grade R, and to all other new pupils who have joined us this year, as well as to their parents. --------------------------------------------------------------

SCHOOL FEES

A reminder to all parents that January's school fees were due on 12th January when your children returned to school! Unfortunately, it seems that this fact has slipped the minds of some families that school fees at the Academy are to be paid IN ADVANCE each month. Please settle your debts by Friday, and avoid an extremely embarrassing phone call from the school. ----------------------------------------------------------

CANSA SHAVATHON DAY PREP. SCHOOL INTER-HOUSE ATHLETICS DATE: Friday 21st JANUARY TIME: 08:00 VENUE: HORSKOOL KEMPTON PARK

As in the past, Shangri-La Academy will be participating in the Cancer Association's fundraising efforts, by allowing the children (as well as the staff and parents) to have their hair coloured, or shaved off altogether, at school, on FRIDAY 11th FEBRUARY. The cost of the "makeover" will be R50-00, and we are hoping to break our previous record by handing over in excess of R20,000 to CANSA. This Friday will also be a "civvies day" at the usual cost of R5-00, with pupils wearing jeans and the official CANSA (and Valentine's Day) colours of red, pink or white tops. ------------------------------------------------------------

SEC. SCHOOL INTER-HOUSE ATHLETICS DATE: Friday 21st JANUARY TIME: 08:00 VENUE: HORSKOOL KEMPTON PARK ---------------------------------------------------E-MAILED NEWSLETTERS

To all new parents, if you would like a copy of the bi-weekly newsletter to be sent to you electronically, instead of a hard copy being given to your child(ren), simply complete the reply slip at the end of this newsletter, and return it to us. I am updating my mailing database again this year, so even if you are one of our "regular" recipients of the newsletter, and would still like to receive the newsletter electronically, please use the Reply Slip to let me know.
