AT the end of last term, we received the welcome news that our musicians once again excelled. Lydia Köhne was listed on Unisa’s honour roll for excellence for achieving 97% in the Unisa theory examination at Grade 3 level in 2015. She is currently in Grade 9 and continuing her studies in music. Christel Brüggemann passed the Unisa theory examination at Grade 5 level with distinction. Elisabeth Tönsing and Meike Meyer wrote the international Associated Boards of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) examinations and both passed Grade 4 theory, Elisabeth with distinction. We congratulate them on their fine achievements and look forward to more good news after the September music examinations. It was a freezing, damp morning last Saturday, but a couple of hours after sunrise, warm hearts and waiting arms welcomed the children back from their week at the coast at the Kailager church camp. Tired but content, the Little Oaks and friends returned home to warm up, unpack and regale their families with tales of their adventures. Thanks to Pastor Risch and helpers at the camp who looked after the children so well.
