Our Grade 7 Leaders
The councillors are a group of children that have been chosen by their peers and have also come through a strict leadership identification process. This year the girls outnumbered the boys by 2 to 1 with seven boy councillors and 14 girls!
The councillors are required to do a number of duties, mainly during breaks, on a rotational basis. These boys and girls word very hard when most of the other children are relaxing.
To be a councillor can often be a thankless task but their efforts definitely do not go unnoticed.
Scholar Patrol Report
Members of the Freeway Park Scholar Patrol Team have been safely guiding learners across the road for most of the school’s 30 year history. The team controls three crossings – at Elsenberg, Constantia and Morgenster Roads. The group at each point comprises three or four members and a leader.
The members of the Scholar Patrol work voluntarily in all weather – from blazing summer sun to icy winter mornings and in torrential downpours. They are responsible and dedicated in ensuring the safety of the Freeway Park Family.
Miss and Master FPPS Pageant
On Saturday, 13 May 2006, we held our third annual Miss and Master Freeway Park Primary School Pageant.
Our theme was ‘Cultures of the World’ and the participants had obviously researched their choice of culture. They were very enthusiastic and came up with some original ideas. All those who attended, participants as well as audience, had an enjoyable afternoon. Our ‘Mistresses of Ceremonies’ were, Mrs. Groenewald (a Voortrekker lady) and Mrs. Olivier (a Spanish Lady).
Congratulations to our winners.

The day wouldn’t have been such a great success without the support of our participants, sponsors, judges and all the extra helping hands on the day.
Ms. Mmoledi and Mrs. Pillay
Shew! What an exciting and lively day this was. The whole day was filled with an immense amount of fun, anxiety and much anticipation. Each class competed in the derby and there were prizes for each class in each grade that won the race. But wait, there was more……….
Not only did classes compete in a race around the track, but the classes also collected money for the derby and you believe it, the class that collected the most money in the school would win a trip to Wild Waters! Still on the ‘money side’ of things, Mrs. Chivers, who was in charge of organising the derby, had a target to meet of R60 000 and I’m pleased to say that we exceeded that amount. Well done to all who participated, we had a wonderful day.
Our Eisteddfod participation has, yet again, been a resounding success this year. We have had mass participation with each and every participant keen to perform and yes… to win that PRESTIGE. We are proud of all our results but the learner’s ultimate goal is to bag a prestige. Term 3 has resonated with the tinkling of voices as poems have been rehearsed over and over again and polished to shining perfection.
Catch up with Past Pupils
Shaan entered a poetry competition last year (2005). He didn’t imagine for a moment that his poem would be published in an anthology. However, “My Lament” was published in the anthology entitled “Angels and Little Scrolls”. Shaan’s second success will be published in “In Adoration and Praise”. It is entitled “My Love”. The Freeway Family is very proud to have had Shaan as a pupil and we will always consider him, as we do all past pupils, a part of the Freeway Family.
