PORT Shepstone High School young achievers Fathima Docrat, Letho Khumalo, Sane Mbhele, Luyanda Shinga and Phumelela Shozi represented the school at the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA) KZN Provincial Competition held in Durban. The topic was “Can hydrogen fuel cell technology be an important contributor to solving the energy needs of schools and other organisations with high societal importance?”

The team had to tackle this topic from an “economic perspective”. It was a long, interesting and educational day. The highlight of the day was the announcement that the PSHS team had been placed first in KZN and will represent the province at the national competition in Pretoria in October. Well done girls!

This year Grade 9 pupil Dev Anilkumar received a gift voucher for winning the final round of the Junior Maths Quiz. The Epoch and Optima Trusts are fundamental in achieving objectives in the maths department. The grant is used to pay for an additional maths educator, which ensures smaller senior classes.

The trust also funds the Grade 8 mathematics programme, matric revision sessions, equipment, text books, staff development and the provision of prizes for competitions run within the department.

The “28 Man Show” was performed by our Grade 12 drama pupils for their parents and fellow Grade 11 drama learners. The show was well-received and was excellent preparation for their final examinations.
