Window on Wembley

GRADE 4 and 5 pupils arrived at 5.30pm at their first “Night at the Library”.

On 24 July, the matric class spent their morning with Mrs Julie Goble in their final art lesson as tradition has it. Every year the matrics spend their morning drawing and painting, mixing and matching, scribbling and squabbling to get their masterpieces perfectly showcased on that blank piece of white paper.

All this was done while reminiscing about the good ol’ days when life was still simple and one and one still equalled two.

Good luck for the last couple of months matrics. Work hard, dig deep and stay focused, you are almost there.

On Tuesday, 25 July the Grade 6 and 7 Wembley pupils travelled to Howick on an exciting excursion to see the Nelson Mandela Capture Site and sculpture.

The sculpture, a collaboration between artist Marco Cianfanelli and Jeremy Rose, consists of 50 steel columns between six and 9.5 metres high along a 30-metre length, which can be seen from the road looking like a forest of steel poles.

This site is one of the top 20 world visual art pieces. Thereafter the pupils spent time in the museum to answer a given question sheet on the life and meaning of Mandela.

Twelve pupils from the SP Phase displayed their Lego and played with each other and their Lego on Friday, 21 July. Time flew and as a teacher I was astounded by the creativity and imagination the pupils had with their games. We will have another afternoon Friday 11 August, so please diarise the date.
