PRESTIGE CONCERT CHEESE & WINE FUNCTION

cheese

Following the extremely prestigious and successful 2016 formal concert we decided to embark on yet another magnificent formal public concert in 2017.  This concert will follow the same principles as the 2016 function yet, bigger and even more variety.  This formal cheese and wine function will be held on Saturday morning 2rd September 2017 at Sundays River Primary School at 10:00 after which we will embark on a relaxed and very special function in our Sport Facility where invited guests can indulge in excellent cuisine in a very special and relaxed atmosphere.  This decision has not been made lightly but was decided upon due to various schools having other activities during the week in the evenings, parents that do not wish to travel late at night etc.  The solution was to change the evening function into a beautiful, formal yet very relaxed function on a Saturday morning when everybody is relaxed and can drive through at their own time and speed to enjoy the day with us with no worries about time restraints, rushing traffic, dangerous night driving etc. This will also ensure that all invited candidates will be able to attend this prestigious function.  The date is quite appropriate as we have monitored this for the past couple of years and it would appear that most schools do not have other activities during this weekend.

During the adjudication process of the festival, the adjudicator secretary has a list of all performing candidates and all awards are inserted next to each candidate’s name.  At the end of the festival, these lists are handed to the Organizer and candidates are then invited to showcase the complete festival.  The concert of 2017 will also differ as we will include less individual poems, and would be able to add more of the other categories for example:  speech choirs, choirs, class singing, modern dancing, African dance, Marimba Bands etc.  We would thus be able to cover the entire spectrum of the festival.

TEACHERS WORDS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS

“Ek wil names DRAMATIQUE DRAMA-ATELJEE vir mnr. Cornelius Korkie en al die borge bedank vir die belegging wat hul in ons kinders se toekoms maak.  Hierdie fees vul ‘n groot leemte in die Oos-Kaap en dit is mense soos julle wat die leemte raakgesien het en werk daarvan gemaak het.  Die kinders sien jaarliks daarna uit om na die platteland te reis en daar deel te neem.  Dankie ook vir die wye keuse van afdelings waaraan hulle kan deelneem en hul talente ten toonstel.  Ek persoonlik geniet die fees, die mense en meeste van alles die PRESTIGE KONSERT wat met soveel sorg en styl aangebied word.

Nogmaals BAIE DANKIE.

Mev. Marcelle Sharp - Dramatique

Goeiedag Mnr Korkie

Namens die Sunridge Primêre Skool wil ek u hartlik bedank vir die wonderlike leerskool wat ons leerlinge kon beleef het tydens die onlangse Sundays River Arts and Culture Festival.

Ons was baie beindruk met die standaard van die Kunsfees in die sin dat u werklik van bekwame beoordelaars gebruik gemaak het wat 'n hoë standaard deurgaans gehandhaaf het.

Dr. Bothma en Mnr Du Plooy se kommentaar was altyd opbouend en baie keer het Dr. Bothma se praatjies ons as musiekonderwysers so bietjie weer op ons tone gebring, want sy het dit weer so duidelik gestel!  Musiek sonder dinamiek, ritme en emosie is nie musiek nie.  Ja en daar was nie eintlik ontevrede onderwysers of kinders nie want daar is meestal verduidelik wat die kind verkeerd gedoen het in sy musiekstukkie.

Die atmosfeer by die Kunstefees was heerlik en daar was altyd koffie en versnaperinge beskikbaar tussendeur al die spanning van beoordeling.  Die leerders was ook baie bly om 'n gratis koeldrank te kon geniet.  Party het gesê, hul het so mooi gespeel, kan hul maar twee koeldranke kry?  Baie dankie daarvoor, dit word baie waardeer.

Ons as musiekpersoneel is ook baie in ons noppies met ons pragtige sertifikate en goue medaljes vir hardwerkendheid.  Ja dit is 'n riem onder die hart aangesien ons harde werk maar soms ongesiens verbygaan in die skoolopset.  Baie dankie daarvoor, mnr. Korkie jy is 'n ster!!

Laaste maar nie die minste nie, ons waardeer die sakke lemoene ten seerste wat ons daar in hope kon wegry. Sulke gasvryheid is maar mingesaai in die stad. Ons waardeer dit opreg! Voorspoed met jou beplanning en nuwe blink idees vir 2017 wat ons na uitsien.

Mev. Elaine Brown – Sunridge
