“Jar of hope” birthday initiative

Our Jars of Hope 93rd Birthday Initiative is taking shape. Follow the recipe alongside and send your “Jar of Hope” to school in the week of 16 – 20 August. For a personalised touch your daughter could make a card, message or picture and attach it to the jar. 

COVID PROTOCOLS

Please notify your class teacher, Jeannette Welgemoed and Sandi Blackbeard immediately if your daughter or any member of your family contracts Covid or comes into contact with a positive person.  Please supply as much information as possible so as to help with tracking and tracing and in order to be able to inform the rest of the class appropriately.

Please be extra cautious and keep to the Covid protocols in order to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. 

Thank you to Dr Claudia Gray for the following reminders:

  • If any direct family member or any other direct contact goes for a Covid test, your daughter must be kept at home until the result of the Covid test is known.
  • Self quarantining is 10 days from the time there was last contact with a positive person.
  • If during this time, you become symptomatic and test positive, you have to start a further 10 days isolation from the time of onset of the symptoms.
  • Self-isolation is 10 days from the onset of symptoms (test positive) or if asymptomatic, 10 days from a positive test result. You may return to school/work without re-testing as long as the person is symptom-free.
  • The best time to test after being exposed to a positive person is 7/8 days from the last contact.
  • The PCR test has a longer turnaround time (1/2 days) but is best as it is sensitive to asymptomatic people as well as those with symptoms.
  • The Rapid Test is cheaper and you can get results as quickly as 15 minutes. This is a better test for symptomatic people, but it is less sensitive in younger children.

Micklefield’s new Media Centre was opened this week with great excitement from both teachers and girls. It is a wonderfully interactive and energising space that promises to be well-used and loved for many Micklefield generations to come. A huge thank you to everyone that has enabled this vision to come to life!
