FRESH from the mid-term break, our pupils are ready for the second half of the term and the Grade 12s are gearing up for their trial examinations. We wish them all the best during this intensive study period.

Our kindergarten and primary school teachers attended the recent Proudly Primary Conference.

They arrived at the conference at Highbury Preparatory School armed with the puzzles they were donating to schools in need, and met up with over a thousand teachers from as far afield as Swaziland and Lesotho. “Dare to be great” was the theme of the conference, which kicked off with a presentation by the energetic Aaron McIlroy.

Executive director of the Independent Schools Association of South Africa (Isasa) Lebogang Montjane was there as well as Nene Molefi, a diversity and inclusion consultant and MD of Mandate Molefi HR Consultants.

Over the two days of the conference, the teachers split into various smaller workshops, but highlights were presentations by Professor Jonathan Jansen from Stellenbosch University, Dr Craig Blewett (who developed the “Activated Classroom” teaching model), and extreme explorer David Grier (who has run the length of the Great Wall in China, the entire SA coastline and the lengths of both Madagascar and India, as well as paddling from Africa to Madagascar).

The insights that our teachers gained during the conference will help shape the way they teach — we are all continuously striving to teach more effectively, for the benefit of our pupils.

Following the huge success of the encore performance of the “Creative Magic” show in Harburg, we look forward to two other events coming up on the horizon — our 27th HMB Golf Day at St Cathryn’s on September 20 and September 21, and the Oktoberfest on October 5.
