LIFE sciences, or biology as many of us still know it, lends itself to hands-on learning, as the Grade 11 class learnt first-hand last term.

Thanks to Mr Thomas Shearing and our life sciences teacher, Mrs Ronelle van Dyk, they had animal eyes and kidneys to dissect.

All were intrigued to see how the textbook drawings measured up to the real thing.

In the end, they agreed that getting stuck in and investigating these organs for themselves was the best way to learn.

With our Grade 10 pupils back from Germany, pupils, parents and teachers are hopefully enjoying the winter holiday to the fullest.

Our history boffs in Grade 12 will be returning to school a little early as they apply their minds to a history camp with Mrs Birgit Eggers during the last days of the holidays.

The Grade 11 and 12 parents and pupils are looking forward to the geography field trip that kicks off their third term on Monday, 24 July, when Mrs Penny Waller will be taking them to see formal and informal commerce and industry in Durban. All our high school parents are reminded of the parent-teacher meeting on Sunday, 23 July at 2pm at the high school - we look forward to seeing you there.
