Hermannsburg Happenings

RIDDLES, conundrums and everything from sport to science, ancient history to current affairs, music clips and movie snippets - the inter-house general knowledge quiz tested pupils, parents and teachers alike. At the end of a brain-teasing evening the judges totalled the scores and Reedbuck took the overall honours (although the winning team came from Bushbuck). Thank you to Mrs Van Dyk and Mrs Waller, scorers and participants for another enjoyable and successful evening which whet everyone­’s appetite for the inter-house enviro quiz on the evening of Tuesday, 13 October.

On a more formal note, the Grade 12 pupils presented their final English­ orals last Thursday, impressing the parents, Grade 11s and teachers in the audience with their presentation skills on topics ranging from European refugees to the Christmas Peace of 1914. A big thank you to all who attended in support of our Grade 12 pupils.

The Chetty family showed us how it’s done by being the first family home in the primary school’s annual sponsored fun walk on Saturday. The walk through the forest provided welcome relief from the blazing sun, and all the walkers made it in good time, on both the five kilometre and 10km walks. Thank you all for taking part and to Mr Röttcher and his team, as well as the parents, who provided refreshments and a mid-morning snack or two.

The portfolios are complete and the last round of lessons takes place this week. We wish our Grade 12 pupils perfect recall and calm nerves for their senior certificate examinations that begin on Monday, after their awards ceremony and farewell dinner-dance over the weekend
