From 8th and 9th grade students to Corporate groups, everyone pitched in to ensure fresh fruits and vegetables, nutritious sandwiches, and healthy baked items were ready on time to be delivered to schools around the city.

Thank you, Nutrien Menno Simons Christian School Rundle College for feeding and caring for Calgary's kids.

Our Primary School hosted Grandparents Day and we cherished every moment of having grandparents at school with their grandchildren. They all enjoyed bonding over decorating a cupcake together and the children loved sharing the beautiful cards they made with their Grandparents. A special thank you to all who made the effort and attended this special day with us ❀️

The School Lunchbox

Covid-19 restrictions were lifted. Hurrah! At the Primary School we threw open the doors at break time and let the students eat their lunches outside at the picnic tables. It was lovely. However, the lure of β€˜the beautiful game’ proved too great for some.

Learners were rushing their food, putting food in the bin and a few stopped bringing their boxes completely, so keen were they to put foot to ball. So, it was back to the classroom, with 10-15 minutes dedicated to eating this all-important meal.

This caused me to reflect on the importance of the lunchbox and its content. The day starts very early in South Africa, and for some of us who may have missed breakfast (loadshedding, sick pets or the dreaded missing homework diary), it could be the first meal of the day, so it needs to be tasty and nutritious.

What is a good lunchbox?

A good lunchbox contains food that is going to help us stay active, alert and focused during lessons and play. It needs to fill us up and be varied enough to keep us interested.

Experts recommend a balance of the different food groups. They suggest that half your lunchbox should contain colourful fruit and vegetables (vitamins and minerals for increased brain function), one-quarter whole grains (energy, fibre and they fill you up) and the remaining quarter healthy proteins and a dairy (healthy growth and concentration ) [1]. Whilst this is an idealistic approach, it does provide a good guide to remind us to include a bit of everything in our lunchboxes. What about salty and sugary snacks?

There is nothing wrong with having a treat. On the other hand, having removed several learners from the ceiling, after they over-indulged on sugary sweets and salty snacks, we have limited Tuck Shop to two afternoons a week and encourage moderation. Baker’s Man is a Friday treat, that we all look forward to.

Scientist do not recommend that you add salty snacks such as chips and pies to your lunchbox because they have a high salt and fat content. Salt causes you to become thirsty, can raise blood pressure and can lead to health complications later in life [2]. Rather save these as a weekly treat.

Experts advise against sugary snacks such as iced cakes, biscuits, fizzy drinks and sweets in the lunch box as they lead to a sugar high, followed by a dip when the brain then becomes lethargic and lacks concentration. The sugar remains on the teeth all day which can cause tooth decay. So what does this all mean?

At the end of the day, we all want the best for our children. We all want them to be happy, healthy and do well at school. A healthy lunchbox, with the occasional treat, is a good starting place.

Here are some ideas from lunchboxes I have seen at school:
Β· Wholemeal tuna fish sandwiches, carrot and cucumber sticks, a yoghurt and a naartjie
Β· Bread roll, droewors, cherry tomatoes, roasted butternut cubes, dried fruit and nuts
Β· Macaroni pasta with pesto, grated cheese and cherry tomatoes, and a rusk
Β· Ham, lettuce and tomato sandwiches, carrot chunks, grapes, and a small muffin
Β· Crackers, cheese, biltong, apple slices, and strawberries
Β· Peanut butter and apricot jam sandwich, a banana, and dried fruit
Β· Egg mayo roll, cherry tomatoes, apple and orange slices, and a yoghurt

I hope this provides some β€˜food for thought’ as, at the end of the day, β€˜we are what we eat’.

Circuit, cell, bulb, switch... The Grade 2 students learnt more about the basic concepts of electricity, what electricity is and how energy is used to power electrical items in and around the home, school and office buildings. The students made their own working models of simple electric circuits in the classroom and discussed electrical safety with Rundle preparatory teacher Ms La Grange.
