CONGRATULATIONS to Benjamin Rabe, Owethu Dlamini, and Anele Cele, who were confirmed in the Peter-Paul Church at Hermannsburg on Sunday. The service was blessed with the voices and sounds of the school and congregation choirs, the brass bands, the accompaniment by organ and piano, and the voices of the congregation, all lifted in praise and celebration of the first advent service of 2018 (and the last service of the school year) — a truly amazing experience for everyone who attended. The service was followed by a special advent dinner for the boarders on Sunday evening.On Tuesday and Wednesday, Hermannsburg celebrated the achievements of all its pupils, and we congratulate them all on their accomplishments — more news will follow in the coming weeks. As our pupils and their parents start their holidays, we wish them all safe traveling and a peaceful festive time with their friends and loved ones. We look forward to greeting them all again in Hermannsburg at the start of the new school year, along with all our new scholars for 2019.
