Message from the Principal, Mr Harmse
It is 2022 and life can finally return to normal. It is with sincere appreciation that we are able to say, we are back – ready to take on 2022 with passion and dedication. Learners have returned full time from day one and academics, sport and culture are continuing at full pace. Thus far, the year has not dealt us with any COVID surprises.
As in the past, our school strives to keep abreast of technology, and we have thus successfully implemented Google Classroom as a means of communication with our parents. This has ensured that communication is sent to parents in an easier and more user-friendly platform. We are continually trying to find the “perfect communication tool” and we are therefore pleased to have received such positive feedback from all our parents.
We strive to move boundaries and to be as challenging as possible in our academic programme. The world expects learners to be able to think critically and to practically apply their knowledge. In order for us to ensure that our learners are well prepared, we need to continue to participate in international exams and other test platforms, as well as to constantly expand and adapt our curriculum to be as relevant to the learning environment outside the classroom. While this is our goal, there will always be room for learners who buy into our practice of learning and thus all learners are welcome at our school.
Our highly qualified staff with their unique skill sets can successfully take on any challenge. We have learnt from the last two years that contact-education is irreplaceable.
As already mentioned, the sport and cultural programme is well on its way. We have noticed from the excellent learner participation and parent involvement, that this was sorely missed by the learners, parents and staff. We look forward to an exceptionally successful year, as we have already witnessed on the athletics field and in the swimming pool. As the year is progressing, we look forward to the choir and revue performances as they have been practicing extremely hard.
As always, we believe that parent involvement is of cardinal importance in running a successful school. Your support in the daily activities of the school contribute to the school’s success. We appreciate your positive attitude and cooperation.
Together, we look forward to a “big” year with many highlights. Be assured of our staff’s continued commitment. I believe that 2022 will exceed our wildest expectations.
