THE El Shaddai Pre-primary concert, prize giving and graduation last Friday featured pre-schoolers in the play of the Very Hungry Caterpillar presented by Grade R teacher Allison Austin.
Lulo Hoza played the very hungry caterpillar and was dressed in a green suit which the children stuffed with the food that the hungry caterpillar wanted to eat.
The children acted as the apples, pears, plums, strawberries and oranges at the same time.
Then the caterpillar lay down with a stomach ache. A
fter a while he felt better and stood up, and transformed into a butterfly.
Teacher Jacquie Gouws handed out prizes to the little lambs (grade RRR children) who were scarcely as big as their certificates.
Grade RR teacher Penny Robertson handed out the prizes to the Busy Bees, and teacher Allison Austin handed out the prizes to the Clever Cats in Grade R.
The Grade R children who are going to big school next year, were dressed up in graduation gowns complete with mortar boards.
In keeping with the theme of goggas the children’s Bible reading was about John the Baptist who ate locusts and wild honey and was happy just talking to God in the wild. He preached on the banks of the Jordan River, instructing people to prepare their hearts when Jesus came along and then he baptised Him.
