Back to School
The last few days of school are often challenging and sometimes a bit of a bore for learners who have completed the years’ work and are now looking for something fun. The Senior and Occupational Phase learners were challenged to participate in a Games morning under supervision of the ADTS therapy team. Shouts of Bingo filled the air! Christmas music played. Dances were enjoyed. Fun was had! We look forward to engaging the learners in more meaningful and purposeful activities in 2024.
This past November month Alta du Toit School’s teachers and therapists did their part in raising awareness for men’s health issues. Our gentleman grew their moustaches and beards while our ladies dressed in blue! It was a “fan-stache-tic” team building effort!
The Occupational phase had their annual SOS camp from the 20th to the 22th of November. School leavers had the chance to attend the camp as a farewell to their school career.
The main focus of the SOS camp is to teach children how to generate love, respect and awareness for the outdoors. It furthermore promotes and encourages interaction between different cultural- and ethnic groups, especially amongst the youth while fostering environmental responsibility.
Activities included bundu bashing, obstacle courses, outdoor hiking, canoeing and a stick bread braai.
Unforgettable memories were made and the learners had a wonderful time!!!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Alta du Toit School treated our learners to our annual Christmas lunch yesterday! The dining hall was decorated and our kitchen staff made the most delicious flame grilled burger meals! Everyone was in high spirits and one could see the learners’ excitement for the festive season ahead! What a cheerful way to end the school year!!! We want to thank Function Hire 4 You and our sponsors for making the day possible!

Athletics Farewell Party
Sport at Alta du Toit School, amongst other things, had to play second fiddle for the last two years due to Covid-19. The athletes finally dusted off their shoes again in 2022! Fanie van der Merwe, a loyal volunteer and role model to Alta du Toit School, dedicated his time to help our athletes reach their full potential. Here the junior and senior athletes are having a small farewell party. Fanie encouraged the athletes to use the talents that God bestowed on them to the best of their ability. We are looking forward to 2023 and trust it will hold great success for our athletes!
Mrs Ferreira is the Curriculum Head at Alta du Toit School and middle phase acting head of department. As curriculum head she is doing a sterling job by ensuring all teachers are updated regarding latest developments. She arranged many training sessions in 2022 for staff and already have a plan in place for training in 2023. She is not only a good teacher, but also an implementer of what is required to make a difference in the lives of staff and learners at the school.
Presidential Youth Employment
Alta du Toit School is privileged and proud to be part of the Presidential Youth Employment Initiative (PYEI) since its inception in 2020. The PYEI addresses the concerning issue of unemployment amongst the youth in South Africa. The Education & General School Assistants pictured below forms part of Phase III of this initiative. They assist in supporting our special learners in and outside the classroom and ensure a clean and safe school environment and infrastructure. We thank each of you!
Last week our learners were crafting all kinds of surprises for their father figures! They were so excited to show them their appreciation and love! We want to send out a big thank you to all our fathers, uncles and granddads for all their efforts in shaping the future!
