Riebeek College will be proudly presenting a variety concert on Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 June at 18:30 each night. Tickets can be bought at the school office at a cost of R30 per ticket.

This festival of fun, and a farewell, is a celebration of the many years that Marilyn Woods, principal of Riebeek, has spent on the stage of Riebeek choreographing numbers and directing plays.

As Woods is retiring at the end of 2016, it was decided that a concert would be a great way to recall the moments and memories of stage productions at Riebeek. The show is aptly called “From Marilyn, with love”.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the many shows I have been involved in at Riebeek. It has been lovely to work with the children again, as principals find administrative tasks take them away from the core function of teaching – interacting with children,” said Marilyn Woods, principal of Riebeek College.

“It is a fitting closure to my tenure at Riebeek to get back on to the stage where I have seen so many learners grow in self-confidence and make memories that taught them more than any lesson I could have presented in class.

“I like to remind the girls that, ‘music nourishes the soul and inspires dreams’.”

The show features each grade in a unique number ranging from the Grade 7s thrilling with a Michael Jackson number and the Grade 5s evoking the Disney world of Frozen complete with a princess and snowman.

The Riebeek Staff are also getting into the spirit of things and Anton Calitz (a well known musician and a teacher at Riebeek) will be performing and Cathy Jane Mintoor (a Riebeek teacher, a soprano who performed in the reknowned NMMU choir and who has joined us from working with the Drakensberg Boys’ Choir) will be performing a few memorable songs from several Disney Movies.
