Modicademy March Newsletter 2019
We have reached the end of the first term of 2019 and the children can now enjoy a well-deserved rest.
Some highlights of the term:
• Spelling Bee:
We had our very first Spelling Bee, co-ordinated by Ma’am Wendy. We are proud of each student, as they all did extremely good.
On Wednesday 27 February we had our annual athletics. The Modi Boat arrived under the captaincy of Ma’am Ger-Marie. We had fun and all of our students had excellent performances.
We are proud of all the students for doing great work in preparing their speeches.
• Klein Magetryn:
The Gr R’s participated in the Klein Magetryn fun day on Wednesday 13 March. We are very proud of each one of them.
The Gr 7 students wrote exams and the Gr 4 – 6 students wrote tests. Thank you for your diligence.
Important information for Term 2 (10 April – 26 June)
Our Aftercare is now in full swing. Well done!!! We are very proud of this facility we are offering. It runs every weekday, during the term from 13:00 to 17:00. If you want to enrol your child from term 2, please feel free to contact the office for the registration form.
- Science Project and presentation Gr 1 – 7:
We want the children to explore their own talents and come show and tell on our KONOS topic in term 2. It will be like a science expo/speech. We welcome their creativity and you are welcome to help, but remember they have to show and tell and the more they do for themselves the easier the “tell” will be. Since this project needs a little more love and care, we give them enough time to prepare and research. They will each get the opportunity on 28 May to present it to the School, and explain what their science project on our chosen topic is about. We can’t wait to see their unique projects and creativeness.
Our KONOS Unit Study’s Godly character trait, is still “COOPERATION” and the topic for our Science Expo is “BACTERIA”.
Gr 1 – Gr 3: Between one and two minutes
Gr 4 –Gr 5: Between two and three minutes
Gr 6 – Gr 7: Between four and six minutes
All book reports for the term’s reading must be handed in on 3 June 2019.
Gr R – 1: Parents can read an English book to them. They retell the story and you write down what they are saying. Copy the front page of the book, paste it in the reading book and do the writing next to it.
Gr 2 – Gr 3: The student must read an English book on their level. The front page of the book must be copied and pasted into the reading book. The student writes a shortened version of the story in their own words next to it, parent may assist the student.
Gr 4 – Gr 7: The student must read both an English and Afrikaans book on their own level. The front page of the book must be copied and pasted into the reading book. The students complete the “book report” form and paste it into their reading books.

We are extremely happy to announce our concert that will take pale on the 23rd of August 2019. We specially planned it on a Friday so that the whole family can attend. The tickets will be available at the office from July. You will have enough time to save your money for the tickets and invite your whole family, even that Auntie from Jo’burg!
The concert is based on a book by Max Lucado,” You are special”. We look forward seeing our whole Modicademy Family there.
More info regarding the dress code and costumes will be communicated closer to the time.
We want to thank you for the privilege of letting us work with your precious children. We love every moment of it.
Please take care of yourself and rest well during the holidays.
Remember to keep on loving God and loving learning.
