WEMBLEY College is haunted! The school was overwhelmed with “spooks or ghosts” last week, tip-toeing around while delivering small gifts to other students.

Each student in the JP, SP and HS phase was given the task of spoiling another student for a week.

Moreover, the Form 5 class departed from the boarding establishment at 8 am on April 26 for the Tugela Vaal Water Project (TUVA). The class was very excited to learn about this project and there was a positive atmosphere.

When we arrived, we were able to walk around and look at what was displayed in their exhibition room while we waited for our guide.

This was a useful way of starting to understand what TUVA is and why it was started. We entered the auditorium for a brief introduction. The guide gave a concise explanation of Eskom, TUVA and why it started.

A video was shown that gave further information into the project. Everyone then entered the power station and an elevator took us 156 m underground to where the heavy machinery was. We were told about the generators, turbines and the different roads and service routes.

The TUVA staff was very friendly and we said our goodbyes.

The class was very grateful for the opportunity to see something different but very important in South Africa. Many people learned about possible job careers and this expanded the knowledge of many geography students.

On Thursday, April 26, it was a busy day at Wembley as the foundation phase hosted yet another successful grandparents day.

This is a very special time for the children where they get to show off their work, read to granny or to brag about their art on the walls.

We thank all our grandparents who took the time and effort to be at Wembley on this very important day and for their generous donations towards a new jungle-gym.

Lastly, on Friday April 20, the U12 and U13 Umzinyathi Hockey Trials were held in Dundee.

Congratulations to the following players who made the team to go to the inland trials in PMB at Hilton College from Friday, 18 May, to Sunday, May 20.
