At Hartmann House we believe that developing the optimism and resilience students need to successfully navigate life is as important as academic education, and will enhance their engagement with learn
For an all-round development of a child, the Hartmann House curriculum includes sports. A sufficient amount of school time is devoted to sports.
We have a variety of activities that take place during the term. We are keen to keep you informed on up and coming events you maybe interested in.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The weeks are already rushing by extremely quickly.
The Grade 5 Andrew class had a very good outing at Aberfoyle last week and I enjoyed meeting up with the boys and watching them out of their classroom environment. The majority proved to be well behaved and Tinotenda Mupfapairi was awarded the Aberfoyle Attitude Badge by Mrs Cragg for being obedient, cheerful, kind, polite and always willing to help and work with the others. He proved to be mature, displayed good leadership qualities and did his best in all activities during the week.
It was pleasing to see there was a long list of boys commended for good behavior.

Well done to 5 Andrew and thanks go to Mrs Cragg and the Aberfoyle staff, and also to Ms Kanyemba and Mr Mupfurutsa for looking after and guiding the boys on their excursion.
The Grade 3 Ruvadiki class went to Gosho Park last week. Mr Martin accompanied them and said the boys did well and tried hard with their activities. Thanks to Mrs Alexander and Mr Mandoza for looking after the boys. I went with the Gr. 3 Theresa class this week to Gosho Park and once again the boys seemed to thoroughly enjoy their time there and hopefully learnt a lot in the few days they were at Gosho Park. The boys were generally well mannered, although there could have been a few more “pleases” and “thank yous” at meal times. Lost property wasn’t too bad but the boys’ listening skills and following instructions needs a lot of work; as does the speed which they follow instructions. I feel that some Grade 3 boys need to be more independent at home, do more for themselves and not have so much done for them by mum or the maid. However, both Grade 3 trips were very worthwhile and a big thank you to Mrs Raynor, who runs the Gosho Camp, and her staff for an excellent job with the Hartmann House boys. Thanks to Mrs Nyahwata and Mr Nduku for accompanying and looking after the Grade 3 Theresa boys.
Next week both Grade 6 classes travel to Kyle National Park from Monday to Thursday. The boys will be accompanied by the three Grade 6 teachers, Mr Nduku, Mr Martin and myself. There are a lot of boys involved in sports matches on Thursday afternoon. The boys will be back from Kyle in time for these.
Next Thursday 30th May, it is the Grade 3 Parents’ Ignatian Evening at 5.30pm in the Grade 7 Christopher classroom.
(upstairs, next to my office). Mr Garande has sent a letter to the Grade 3 parents.
Friday 31st May sees the SDC Fundraising Quiz being held. Please see attached flier and extra information at the end of this newsletter.
On Monday 3rd June it is the Hartmann House Parents’ Assembly in the Jubilee Hall at 5.30pm, to discuss adjustments to the Term 2 school fees.
I hope that all boys from Grade 3 to 7 are bringing their Maths and English “Facts Books” home every weekend in preparation for the mid-year exams which commence after the half term break.
As you can see there are lots of sports results in the “Sports Desk” section of the newsletter. I was impressed with all the
1st and Colts ‘A’ soccer and rugby players at the Gateway “Coaching Festival” on Saturday 18th May. There was lots of effort and determination and good skills on display.
