THURSDAY: BIG HEART YOGA
Big Heart Yoga invites children to participate in our creative, strength building, muscle toning, and all round blissful classes.

The children learn to develop their imagination and build self-confidence in a non-competitive environment.
– Other activities at Four Seasons –
THURSDAY: BAKER’S DAY
Baker Day happens every Thursday. Each child gets a chance to be a ‘baker’. Each baker needs to bring something edible to ‘sell’ to the other children. The money collected goes towards fundraising for something needed in the school environment which will be of benefit to the children. Each child needs to bring R5 to school every Thursday except when they are the baker.
EVERY DAY: LIBRARY
The children are given an opportunity daily to choose a book from our school library to take home for a maximum of five days. They may exchange before if they feel they want a new book. Parents read the book to them during story time at home. This fosters endless benefits for both the children and parents.
– Lunch –
Parents need to send a healthy packed lunch to school: sandwiches, fruit, yoghurts, cheese, nuts, raisins, salads, cold meats, eggs, granola bars, etc. You may also send food that requires warming. Please do not send sweets, chips, sugary biscuits cakes (including Tinkies), sweet/chocolate muffins and fizzy drinks. Kindly send a bottle of water, which will be topped up with filtered water in the hotter months. Only diluted fruit juice to a ratio of 1:3 of juice to water respectively is allowed as a secondary drink to the water. No Oros or other artificially sweetened drinks are allowed. It is important for your children to eat a healthy breakfast each morning to help them maintain their energy levels and concentration during the morning.
