Hermannsburg Happenings

WELCOME back. By the time this goes to press, the fourth term will already be well under way for our pupils and teachers, as the Grade 12s prepare for their final national senior certificate examinations in a week’s time, and everyone else starts looking ahead and preparing for the internal November examinations.

Along the way, we will enjoy the inter-house general knowledge quiz, the inter-house Enviroquiz, the Grade 12 Awards Ceremony and matric dance, as well as music­ recitals (Vorspiel) and the Grade 12 Speech Night (hosted by the music and English departments respectively). The primary school will host its annual fun walk, the birders will join in on Birding Big Day, and our school choir will sing at the service on the last Sunday in the church year, just before the first Advent Sunday. The year will be rounded off with an awards ceremony for the Kindergarten, followed by those for the primary school and the high school, just prior to which our Grade 11s will have experienced their leadership camp, and the Grade 10 geographers will have seen new sights on their three-day geography field trip. In between all of this the usual teaching and learning, sport and other routine activities will continue. All in all a busy, event-filled and fun term lies ahead
