THERE is always something new to learn, and, as life-long learners, seven of our teachers from the Kindergarten and Primary School attended a three-day workshop about multigrade teaching, presented by Cedar College of Education and hosted by Domino Servite School in KwaSizabantu under the auspices of the South African Council of Educators (SACE).
Mrs Bosman, the workshop’s facilitator, made the importance and roles of teachers quite clear, elucidating the different features of the classroom, teaching aids and the scholars’ responsibilities in a multigrade classroom. Our teachers will be able to apply everything they learned to their teaching and to our pupils — the workshop gave new insights and a new outlook on working with our scholars and helping them to achieve success. It was both inspiring and motivating to be in the company of like-minded professionals. A big thank you goes to Domino Servite School for hosting the workshop and for looking after our teachers so well.

On the hockey front, our boys’ teams played their first matches of the season against Carter High School, with our first team ending 0-5 and U15 team 0-3, despite fairly evenly matched U15 teams.

Preparations are reaching fever pitch for the Hermannsburg (HMB) Fun Ride on Sunday, April 22, with a fun but challenging track being laid out through the forests and farmlands surrounding Hermannsburg — with straightforward fun and technical sections. There will be something for every skill level on the 35 km loop and shorter kiddies loop. We look forward to hosting two-wheelers, four-wheelers and their riders as they tackle the four-wheeler-friendly track and the barrel racing afterwards.
