Issue 1 - 2015
We are very pleased to present the inaugural issue of the Clonard eMagazine. This has been put together to celebrate the achievements of Clonard students, showcase their creativity, provide a glimpse into some homeschool "classrooms" and generally show off the wonderful children, parents and tutors that are part of our Clonard family.
This past year has seen some changes for Clonard. We opened new offices in Springfield Park, said goodbye to some wonderful teachers and welcomed others. We updated our website and introduced online ordering and we have just launched a tutors tab that will list all the tutors that we know of throughout the country to assist parents with both full tuition and subject assistance. If you are, or know of, a talented and caring tutor then please contact us so that we can include you/them on our list. We attended various homeschooling expos around the country where we had the opportunity to interact with some of you face-to-face, which was a welcome change to the telephonic and email communication that we are used to. We travelled to Pretoria where we were part of meetings with the Department of Basic Education surrounding their policy making for home education. Recently, we appeared in a front page article in The Times about homeschooling and were interviewed thereafter by various radio stations throughout South Africa. We have had an eventful year, but continue to maintain our usual high standard of service and education.
We trust that you have had a good year and hope that it will finish on a high note. Most families are currently writing the year-end exams, or preparing for them, and we wish you all the best of luck! Without further ado, let's get to showing off the Clonard students.
