Principal's Desk - September 2018 Print E-mail
The end of term is upon us and what a term it was…..highlight of the term was no doubt the school musical, Change, but we were so busy this term that there are many other things that happened.

The ‘mock’ matric exams went by without a hitch and the full assessment programmes of the 8’s to 11’s made sure that learners kept their col-lective focus this term.

The derby day against Fish Hoek was hard fought and honours were shared over the two days. Our new prefects and RCL were elected and we wait with bated breath for the announcement of the Head Prefects and their deputies. The staff were privileged to listen to the 6 candidates for the positions speak in the staffroom this week. Rest assured we have high calibre young people who are willing to step up and take the lead. The announcement of the Head Prefects and RCL chairs will be announced at our Annual Prize-giving early next term. Talking about Prize Giving, we are reverting back to a single ceremony involving all the grades the night before the Matric Valedictory service. We have felt for a while that honouring our learners should include all grades. It didn’t make sense to have the Matric Awards separately. We look forward to this new format.

We had an overwhelming response to our invitation to the parents to the Opening of our new Cultural Centre and classrooms and unfortunately had to cut off the numbers at 200. We can’t wait to officially open the building and it is already receiving rave reviews from the folk who have seen it thus far.

This week alone we waved Bon Voyage to a group of learners and staff headed for Vietnam as part of the History department whilst the Outdoor Adventure Club made their way to the Orange River to negotiate the exhilarating ride down the river. We wish both groups a wonderful trip and many thanks to the staff and parents who have made this opportunity available for the children. I have no doubt that for all it will be memories of a lifetime that will be made on both trips.

For those families who are travelling during these all too brief holidays we wish you travelling mercies. To the matrics of 2018, we wish you all the best as your prepare for your final exams which start in little over 3 weeks.

See you all back at school on Tuesday 9 October.  Stephen Price
