VIRTUE OF THE MONTH
This month our virtue is friendliness. What an excellent virtue to begin the year. It is a virtue that can easily engage students of all grades and it will help set the tone for the year.

When even his father, the leader of the herd, blames him for the lack of rain and the subsequent death of his mother, the outcast zebra leaves the confines of his home knowing that he cannot survive in the herd without all his stripes. Khumba ventures beyond the fence – vulnerable to the ferocious Leopard, Phango, who controls the waterholes and terrorizes the animals in the Great Karoo.
