Happy Holidays from African Angels

Our joyous Xhosa themed 2018 prize giving concert

The Angels and their teachers are now taking a well earned break and we hope that you are too.  Our school is closed until the second week of January, and we are busy doing maintenance, and preparing to welcome 134 children back in 2018. 

We have had a remarkable year of achievements at the school, and say farewell to our first graduating Grade 7 class as they go onto their high school careers.  Our end of year prize giving had a traditional Xhosa theme and it was a joyous occasion.

From all of us at the school we wish you safe and happy holidays and we'll be in touch in 2018.

Love from Lou and the Angels.

Owethu is delighted. Art for Art Exhibition.

Hello Visual Art supporters!

We posted some time ago about little Owethu, whose artwork was sent overseas to represent South Africa.  Well she didn't win a prize, but she did receive a certificate, and by her reaction you'd think she had won first prize!  We love that all children are winners with art.

The Art for Art exhibition is being held this Saturday 25 November from 5pm - 7pm at the Ballog in Serenbe, Palmetto, Georgia, in the US.  Julia Stahlman is the champion of this initiative that will see artwork from children like Owethu exhibited for sale with all proceeds donated to African Angels Visual Arts program at the school.  We are very grateful for Julia and her passion for this initiative.  The link to the exhibition is here  Art for African Exhibition

As we head towards the end of the school year we are saying farewell to our first graduating grade 7 class who are off to high school in 2018.  A new chapter in our grade 7's lives, and for our school.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the African Angels.

With gratitude,

Lou and the Angels

African Angels Prizegiving 2017

Our Favourite Night of the Year.

African Angels Independent School - Prize Giving Concert Monday 4 December 2017

The African Angels Independent School annual prizegiving and concert is one of our favourite nights of the year. It is a happy event, where over 200 parents, relatives, supporters and guests come to share in the achievements of the children who attend the school.

The children are all excited to receive their awards (academic, sport and behaviour) and there is always much excitement when the Angel of the Year is announced.

This year sees our first Grade 7 class leave us for high school and so it is bound to be a very emotional night.
