Yeshiva College Primary School staff started the term by partnering with Read for Hope to prepare and distribute 20 story packs. Read for Hope is an educational initiative that offers readings to underprivileged communities and schools by people around the world, who record and share audio and video of children’s stories.

Every pack included a video recording of a story, a worksheet, an activity relating to the story, and of course, a treat for every child. The teachers worked in pairs to create their packs.

The packs were received with gratitude and appreciation. A small amount of effort can have a lasting impact.

The morning rounded off with a tense game of bingo, before teachers headed back to school to prepare for what’s sure to be an incredible year. Wishing everyone הצלחה רבה (much success) for 2022.

Sale of Herzlia Constantia secures UHS’s future

United Herzlia Schools (UHS) has signed a deal with Rabie Property Group to develop a retirement village on the land previously occupied by the school’s Constantia campus, closed 18 months ago.

“To ensure the sustainability of the world-class education UHS offers its pupils, there had to be sacrifices. This came 18 months ago in the form of the closure of the Constantia campus,” UHS said on the sale.

A small section of the former Constantia campus has been retained for the Herzlia Kerem Pre-Primary campus. From there, children complete their schooling at Herzlia Highlands campus in the Cape Town City Bowl.

“It was very important to UHS and the broader community to retain the Constantia Hebrew Congregation in close proximity to our school,” UHS said. “It will be comfortably accommodated in this new section of our remaining property.

“This has been a difficult journey, but one that we are confident will see us continuing to do the best we can for the Jewish children of Cape Town.

“As our motto, taken from the wise words of Theodor Herzl, says, “Im tirtzu, ein zo aggadah” (If you will it, it’s no dream).” This dream will live on and grow for all our pupils.
