Make Art with Us

Art therapy uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. It also aids diagnosis.

We’d love to see you at our session on March 3, under the guidance of Tessa Whyatt. Please contact our office for more information.

Mindstretch Family Picnic

Thanks to all who attended and made the Mindstretch Family Picnic the wonderful event that it was.


Newsletter 13

Our final Mindstretch Newsletter of 2017 is now available.

Sincere thanks are due Richard Rogers of Bendels Consulting for his piece focused on disability tax relief. Given that we are approaching the often party-filled year-end, it also seemed a good time to review the ingredients of a successful party.

Happy reading, and we wish all our friends a successful, satisfying and peaceful end of year.

Educative Excursions

We have had much fun this past term with several excursions. With each, we seek to develop our children, be it in the physical, intellectual and/or emotional realms. Pinelands Library, the Aquarium, and the Planetarium were just a few of Term 4’s outings. Visits to Gordon’s Gym, the Playshed, and learning football with Apex Football Club have been others. 

Newsletter 12

Our ‘celebratory’ Mindstretch Newsletter 12 is now available. My thanks to all who have supported me and Mindstretch since we began our work in the early 2000s, and also to those involved in and/or supporting Mindstretch Preschool, now in its fourth year.

With gratitude, Jennifer

Marble Painting

Since returning to school for Term 3 earlier this week, we’ve done all sorts of wonderful things, including marble painting. This simple exercise is good for hand-eye coordination, and it lets us create some interesting paintings.

Newsletter 11

Please click here to download our Mindstretch Newsletter 11. It features an essay by the grandmother of our website ‘poster boy,’ Oame. One of the founding pupils from January 2014, Oame is now in Grade 2, and he is flourishing. Thanks too to Philna Badenhorst for her article on music therapy. 

Happy Holidays

Mindstretch wishes all our scholars, families and friends a happy Easter break – and chocolate.
