Mrs stark's kindness

As the Grade Head for Grade 10, Mrs Stark undertook an act of kindness when she realised that one of the learners in her care would benefit from having an item of medical equipment at home. With the help of Miss du Preez and the Interact Board, Mrs Stark was able to assist a Riebeek learner and make a difference.

farewell

We bid a sad farewell to two of our student teachers who were with us for Term 1 and 2. These gentlemen volunteered to assist at our evening functions and went beyond their course requirements in every sphere of the school. They certainly crept into the hearts of the Riebeek staff! We will be watching their futures with a keen interest and pride. Go well, Mr Lukhanyo Boligello and Mr Oliver Chant.

coffee bar

Riebeek SCA, in collaboration with Muir SCA, hosted a Coffee Bar at Elim Assembly of God on 21 June. The theme was "I am who you say I am" and guest speaker Pastor Julius Kirsten's message was one that truly made an impact on the Grade 8 to 12 learners in attendance. The event was a great way to end off the term. Thank you to Pastor Ownhouse for allowing the SCA committees to host the event at the church and to Elim Praise and Worship Band for making the evening extra special. Thank you to Gabrielle Ownhouse, the SCA committee, Miss Meyers and Miss S Du Preez, the Muir SCA committee, Mr Jones and Mr Jonas, for making the event a success.

SCA Outing

Riebeek SCA attended the opening session of Father's House Church's Echo Youth and Young Adult Conference in Port Elizabeth, Thursday 24 May. The guest speaker was Australian born Joel Ramsey, all the way from Durban. The evening was filled with fellowship, good food and exciting games. A special connect session was held at 17:30 for all youth and young adult pastors and leaders . The programme was officially opened for all at 19:00, starting with incredible praise and worship and an awakening message and concluded by transcending worship. It was ofcourse also a pleasant surprise that we bumped into our brother school, Muir College SCA members and coordinating teachers Mr K. Jones and Mr A. Jonas accompanied by our very own Miss van der Westhuizen who is not only involved with SCA but also with Elim Church Youth Ministry called Fuel. We thank Miss Meyers for co-ordinating the outing and driving us safely to and back. It was indeed a revitalising , fun and inspiring evening.

The Grade 7s would like to thank Valentina Longari for her wonderful act of kindness. Valentina assisted Mrs Woods in a Natural Science practical, where the Grade 7 learners needed to compare the boiling points of water and juice. Valentina set up all the neccesary science equipment and volunteered to help the girls while doing their practical. Valentina showed the girls some of the Grade 12 Science experiments and even taught them about the elements. Reutloue Dunywa said: " I can't wait to do Physical Science in Grade 10 because Valentina showed us that Science is fun."

Grade 4 Initiative

The Grade 4 learners are very excited to play their part in making Riebeek a litter free school. 
 
With their kind hearts and enthusiastic nature, each Grade 4 learner picks up a piece of litter before school or during break time and uses it as an "entry fee" when they enter class. 
 
There is no doubt that by the trend that they are moving...pretty soon there won't be any more litter to pick up. 
 
Thank you for being such a good example. So proud of you!
