FOUR Wembley teachers attended Cambridge courses at St Johns School in Johannesburg, on March 17 and 18, hosted by Cambridge Assessment International Education facilitators, who sometimes had up to 40 years of experience in their fields.

The teachers were all given detailed insight into marking methods, analysis of learning styles, creating active pupils, syllabi changes, textbook requirements and holistic teaching methods.

It was a brilliant learning experience which allowed our teachers to share skills, ideas and information.

All the teachers felt it was a wonderful opportunity to network with other subject specialists from all over southern Africa.

Lastly, on Thursday, March 22, the U13 boys and girls hockey teams headed to Treverton for the Treverton Pre-season Hockey Tournament.

Contending with rain and cold, the players did their best to keep motivated and make the best of the conditions. Playing in two days of rain, the boys managed to go unbeaten.

On the modelling front, out of 600 international and national contestants, Deanté Swart was chosen for the final top 25 in the Face of Just You Internationals Models search. The eleven-year-old pupil from Wembley College now stands the chance to win a 12-month modelling contract in New York where she again will represent South Africa internationally.

The winner will be announced at a gala event in Johannesburg on May 25.

The public still has a say in who walks away with the international modelling contract as the public vote counts 40% of the outcome.

Please continue to show your support by voting 009 to 35224 and follow Deante’s journey on Facebook (Deante Swart), Instagram (@swartdeante) and Twitter (swartdeante).
