AND so it begins, 2017 got off to a flying start with a pleasing increase in our high school numbers and renewed commitment to excellence on the academic, sport and cultural fronts.
Thank you to all the parents, pupils, old pupils and members of our school family who attended yesterday’s church service and the annual general meeting of the Parents’ Association.
We welcome our new pupils, especially those in Grade 1 and Grade 8, as well as the new teachers­ who have joined us this year.

We look forward to productive and happy times with them, again congratulating the Class of 2016 for a 100% pass rate (allowing them all to go on to further study), and trusting that this year’s Grade 12 class will maintain this tradition.

We apologise for an error that crept into the caption for one of our Happenings photographs last year - our head boy for 2017 is Hugh Bouwer.

During the holidays some of our parents were hard at work - our thanks go to the dedicated group that undertook the catering for the visiting groups that stayed at our school, using our boarding establishment and facilities for their retreats and workshops - the most recent being the Equip retreat run by the Lutheran Church.

We appreciate the support of such visiting groups, as well as the old pupils who regularly organise reunions at our school, and trust they will continue to make use of our tranquil surroundings for their functions.
With such support from our school family and particularly our committed parents, we look forward to a superb year ahead.
