Lasallian Month of Peace
Today starts the Lasallian Month of Peace. The theme this year is “Peace Without Limits” which ties in nicely with our Heritage Month theme of “Love thy Neighbour”! Let us pray for peace in our beautiful country and throughout the world. “Make me an instrument of thy Peace” – let us spread peace within our homes, families and communities.

YEARBOOK FAMILY SPONSORSHIPS
We have a few spaces left for family messages in the 2017 yearbook. Please help us fund this wonderful book of memories for the children by sponsoring a page for R285. It is through the advertising and sponsorship that we are able to provide each family with a copy at no cost. Please contact Mrs Musto in the office.
 
ARK
Your child will receive a Yellow Ark at school on Friday 22 September. We ask for your help in filling the Ark with your loose change. All money collected will go to the Johannesburg Parent and Child Counselling Centre (JPCCC). JPCCC is an NGO providing counselling and assessments to children and families who desperately need these services, but whose parents cannot afford to pay for them. We offer these services from our head office in Parktown, our Soweto Office and at 30 schools across the city. We strive to reach as many children as possible in Johannesburg, and assist with all difficulties, from trauma, abuse, parents divorcing and learning difficulties. Please assist us in this endeavor by collecting as much as possible to go into the Ark. Arks are due back on 24 October.
 
Grade R Concert
The tickets for the Grade R concert will go on sale at 7:00 on Tuesday 26 September. Tickets upstairs will cost R40 and downstairs, R20. Only 4 upstairs tickets per family. This is a big night for our Grade R children and they have practised very hard. The slightest interruption can distract them. With this in mind, we would encourage parents to take very young children outside during the performance should they become restless. Children are welcome to attend the grandparents’ concert on 5 October.
 
Collection from School
Any children not collected within 15 minutes of the end of school or extra murals, will be sent to supervised homework or aftercare. Please do not ask the security guards to find your child as they are required to remain at the gate and make sure the school is secure. Please come into the school and fetch your child. The safety of your child is of paramount importance.
 
Library Sale
To make space for all the wonderful new books Mrs Heaney has bought, she is selling some of her older non-fiction books for R10 per book. Please pop up to the library to see what she has.
 
Donations
We have been asked for a donation of men’s clothes for a needy cause. If you are able to help, please bring donations in to the office.
 
August / September Birthdays
August and September birthday children may wear civvies on Monday 2 October.
 
Holy Cross Home Fete
A reminder that we have been asked to assist with donations of cakes, tarts and sweets. The fete is being held on 30 September. Please bring donations to the office from 27 -29 September. Please support this very worthy cause!

Heritage Day 2017

De La Salle Holy Cross College Junior School celebrates Heritage Day

On 22 September the De La Salle Holy Cross College Junior School celebrated Heritage day in great style!

The pupils, Academic staff and Support staff embraced the opportunity to come in traditional dress for the day. They all paid R10, which will go towards making up the Christmas Boxes for charity in December. The learners had a special assembly, where they sang the National Anthem, African songs and prayed for their country. Some children brought dishes of their national food to share with everyone. The Grade 3 classes then had a braai and Grade 6 made stok brood. A educational and fun day was had by everyone!

"The Management of De La Salle Holy Cross College were so impressed with how many of our pupils went out of their way to dress up for the occasion.  We had a really colourful array of traditional attire and foods, and had a great time celebrating and learning about various cultures, beliefs and traditions." said Mrs Carren Ilsley – Deputy Head of the DLSHCC Junior School.
