We celebrated our own Library Week from 29 February to 4 March. The grade 4 – 7 classes enjoyed taking part in many competitions based on informational skills that have been taught in the Media Centre. These included activities such as crossword puzzles, a library scavenger hunt, use of computer research skills and non-fiction activities. The week culminated in a fun day with children dressing up as their favourite book characters.
On Thursday, 11 February, The Eco-Club went to Pledge Park. It is a botanical jewel in the midst of Knysna CBD. It was once a brickfield and eventually a dumping ground. Presently, it is an indigenous sanctuary.
The Eco-buddies enjoyed exploring the different trails and learnt a lot about the vegetation. The view of the Heads from the top of the park was amazing.

Die barmhartigheid van Knysna Laerskool leerders het gesorg dat 7 sopkombuise in die Knysna omgewing weer warm voedsame kos het om aan behoeftiges te voorsien. Met nederige dankbaarheid het die sopkombuis verteenwoordigers elke liefdevolle skenking met ope arms verwelkom. Dankie vir elke familielid van Knysna Primer wat ‘n verskil gemaak het aan ‘n honger kind se lewe. Dit is ‘n wonderlike voorreg om diensbaar te wees en ons kinders te sien groei met mooi waardes en omgee vir hul medemens. Dankie aan u die ouer wat dit alles moontlik gemaak het.
The compassion and support of Knysna Primary children brought welcome relief during the cold Winter to 7 Soup Kitchens in the greater Knysna area. Generous vegetable and food contributions were donated to 7 soup kitchens. Children from Knysna Primary lovingly contributed onions, potatoes, butternut, leeks, soup mixes, rice, noodles and samp which brought tears of gratitude to the humble Soup Kitchen representatives. Thank you to every family member of Knysna Primary who made a difference in the life of a hungry child. It is a privilege to share Gods love in our own community, enriching not only the lives of the less fortunate and needy, but also to enrich the lives of our children by instilling values of kindness, goodness and love for our neighbours. Thank you Knysna Primary parents, for making this possible.
A heartfelt thanks to:
Mr Stoker who kindly allowed the Soup kitchen outreach to take place.
