CULTURE vultures swooped in their numbers on Tuesday, 30 August for our annual “Culture Commotion”. The level of talent on display blew previous functions out of the water.
All the individual acts were prepared by pupils themselves and their preparation and dedication were greatly appreciated.
The senior primary choir, headed by Mrs Van Rooyen, charmed us with a variety of songs in two voices and the high school a capella group made their debut and brought the house down.
All of the dances were choreographed by the pupils themselves. The intricacy of the stories told by their captivating performances was mind-blowing. Interspersed among the dances and singers were our keen, young poets whose pieces ranged from Die Haantjie Wat Jou Wakker Maak to the fluidity of time and how freedom is a misused concept.

Along with the great performances, the audience was spoilt for choice with a variety of soups such as sweet potato and apple, cream of tomato, potato and leak and butternut. These were accompanied by rolls and red wine.
The selling of the soup and rolls brought in funds for our school’s library. This year Wembley is keeping up with the theme of recycling and keeping our Earth clean. This theme trickled down into our evening’s décor, with our rustic table settings and brown and green colour scheme. There were also the trees from the SP play that were used to brighten the stage.

Along with the various acts, the night would never have been such a success if it wasn’t for Mrs Swart who helped with the décor and Mrs Van Rooyen and Ms Woolahan who helped with the selection of the programme.
A big thank you to Mrs Schneider and Mrs Yeadon for organising the wonderful soup, wine and rolls. Without all of your input and ideas the Culture Commotion would not have made such an impact.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to Mr Kevin Diedrick for not only fixing, but rebuilding many of the chess pieces. They were purchased more than 15 years ago and were in dire need of a good revamp. Mr Diedrick supplied all the labour and materials, free of charge. They are now in stronger and better shape than when purchased. Thank you.

Thank you to Mr Dieter Meyer and the PA committee for an excellent golf day that took place on Saturday 27 August at the country club.
Thank you to the sponsors and golfers who supported this event - we really appreciate it.
