Grade 1

Educators (2024)

The Grade 1 teachers would like to extend a warm welcome to you as the Grade 1 parents of 2024.  We trust that our relationship with you will be a positive one of commitment, co-operation and good communication throughout the year.  With this in mind, we shall be scheduling a Parent Evening for all Grade 1 parents on Tuesday, 23 January 2024 at 17:00 in the hall. 

Stationery requirements:

Below is a list of stationery requirements for 2024. Please note, this is a starter pack only and consumables may need to be replaced as the year progresses. Please ensure all items are individually and clearly marked. We start work on day 1 and all items need to be at school on the first day.

The display files are not to be marked.

In some cases we have indicated our preferred brands. We have found through extensive testing that these offer the best value while still remaining economical.

Additional requirements:

Below is a grade specific list of requirements not included in the 2024 starter stationery pack list:

  • Art shirt. We recommend that you take one of dad’s old shirts and shorten the sleeves. It is best to put elastic in the hem of the sleeve so that it fits your child’s wrist.
  • 2 Large box of tissues (200s)
  • A navy-blue EPS school bag for your books. (We do not allow the wheelie type)
  • Plastic for the covering of books to be kept at home
  • Gr1 Homework book bag for taking books home
  • Earphones to fit into a bank bag (must be clearly marked and in the ear, not over the ear or wireless): – For use with iPads as required as school does not supply for health reasons. These must be at school every day.

Uniform:

Please ensure that your child’s uniform and Physical Education clothes, including swimming costume, swimming cap (in child’s house colour which the shop will know) and tracksuit are in good order for the new year. Each item of clothing must be clearly marked. Please refer to our school’s website www.edgemeadprimary.co.za with regards to uniform requirements.

We are looking forward to a successful 2024 and wish you a safe and relaxing festive season with your children.

Yours sincerely,

Grade 1 Teachers
