LAST weekend our Kindergarten and primary school teachers had the most exciting, stimulating and memorable “Proudly Primary Conference” at Cowan House Preparatory School in Hilton. The theme of this year’s conference, “Down to Earth”, celebrated the many unique qualities and opportunities in South Africa, as well as the privilege of teaching in our beautiful country. The conference catered for the specific needs of all primary school phases and incorporated environmental and outdoor education. A young Hermannsburg Enviro quiz team (two Grade 8 pupils, a Grade 9 and a Grade 11 pupil) took on 14 teams (comprising mostly senior pupils) at the national final in Pietermaritzburg last Friday, finishing fifth. Thank you Mondi and WESSA for organising the quiz each year. In their soccer matches against Wembley College, our girls won 1-0 and our boys 6-2.
