tania snyman, luisterFM finalist

The Grade 4s were so happy to meet Tania Snyman. She is a Miss LuisterFM finalist.
LuisterFM is a local radio station. They believe in giving back to the community. All finalists were given a project to collect as much cat or dog food as possible. All donations will be given to Domestic Animal Care, a non profit organization based in Port Elizabeth. Their mission is to assist and educate owners of domestic animals in impoverished and underprivileged areas on how to provide proper care for their pets, to treat injured, ill and infected animals and to arrange for sterilisation.
Tania Snyman believes that owning a pet teaches children responsibility, compassion, respect and trust. Her presentation to the Grade 4s informed them about all the do's and don'ts when it comes to domestic animals. They loved the video clip she showed them and they learnt about Domestic Animal Care through her powerpoint presentation. Most of all, she inspired the learners to make a difference by donating food and other items.
She is running a lucky draw competition with the Grade 4s. For every item of food they bring to donate, their name gets entered. The winner will win 4 Debonairs pizzas to share with 3 friends.
We wish her the best of luck in her journey as a Miss LuisterFM finalist.

Media Workshop Article

BY LIQHAWE NOGAMPULA


The media workshop that took place on 7 August 2018 was presented by Dr Janelle Vermaak, a Riebeek College Old Girl of the Class of 1999. Dr Vermaak studied for a BA MCC degree at NMMU and graduated last year with a PhD in Media Studies. She is a big fan of Alien but an even bigger anti-fan of The Twilight Series. She filled us in on the different types of fans as well as how cosplay is not just dressing up as a character, but it’s about being the character. She also gave us tips on how to survive at university. She told us about media courses. She taught us that if we want our lecturers to notice us, we have to let them get to know us by helping them out, asking and answering questions in class and showing them that we are ready and willing to learn. She said that we need to take responsibly of our own education starting now. Lastly, we spoke about citizen journalism and how the contribution by citizens to news has increased. Thank you, Dr Vermaak!

Junior Hockey U/14A on 1 August

eam: Junior Hockey U/14A
Date: Wednesday 01 August 2018
Captain: Kate-Lynn Forbes
Vice Captain: Janine Hendricks
Opponents: St Dominic's Priory
Won 0 - 1
Players of note: Lindokuhle Gosani (CM) and Kelsey Dinie (RS) goalscorer.
The girls finally won their first League Game. The only goal came in the first 5 minutes of the game. A team effort that resulted in a soft goal, touched by many players but eventually claimed by Kelsey.
The girls played very well with numerous attacks down the middle of the park by Lindokuhle, who dominated the midfield, feeding the strikers with goalscoring opportunities. Priory's defense was on song though.
I am very proud of my girls. They were focused, determined and communicated well. They deserved to be spoilt and that's just what we did. KFC and McD in one afternoon.
Well Done, Ladies.

Grade 6 Assembly

BY REBECCA WILKINSON

The Junior School sat down in their rows with their glowing faces staring at us in anticipation. The assembly soon started and everyone watched intently. Bible verses, prayers and poems were recited. Next was the long awaited fun event of the assembly, the plays. The actors effortlessly executed the well-rehearsed plays. They put a smile on the audiences faces and laughter filled the room. When all the plays were completed an educational video about our theme, kindness was played. Sadly, the assembly came to an end. Everyone enjoyed it and started swaying, clapping their hands to the music and trying to sing Tori Kelly's high notes. The assembly turned out to be a success. The hard work of the grade 6 learners and dedication of the grade 6 teachers, Mr Jonas and Miss van der Westhuizen was greatly appreciated

grade 7s hold their market day

BY Mr de Beer

Grade 7 Entrepreneurs Day
It was a very busy day, particularly for the Grade 7 learners who were all so excited to start with their Entrepreneurs Day and sell their products to the rest of the school. The Grade 7s got to work immediately to set up each group’s stall.
There were 14 stalls all together namely: The Flamingos; Swinging 80’s; Pretty Young Divas; Unicorn Parade, The OG Rainbow Squad, The 90’s Anti-social Club, Minnie Mouse Sparkles; Minnie Mouse Ladies; Marvellous Creations, The Limelight Witches; Galaxy Girls; Tropical Girls; The Disney Girls; Dream Team.
The day was a fun-loving, hard-working and colourful day, packed full of marvellous ideas, creations and laughter. With music playing in the background, the selling and buying took place with such a burst of joy and enthusiasm that the whole day got brightened up tremendously.
The stall with the highest sales was the Limelight Witches with the Dream Team right on their tail.
Thank you to all the teachers, parents and guardians, who helped in making this Grade 7 Entrepreneurs Day a huge and undeniably true success.

keeping it clean

Going Green as a society was very excited about the new dustbins to be found on the school’s campus. The Going Green girls came with the initiative to reareange them by placing them near the most popular seating areas for the majority of the scholars during breaks. The bins are now in easy-to-reach places which will promote the cleanliness of our school grounds.

mandela day guest speaker

Hlomela Bucwa

South Africa’s youngest Member of Parliament. Hlomela Bucwa (Class of 2010) made her maiden speech in Parliament on 21st February 2017. Hlomela told Bulelwa Dayimani, a Destiny Connect journalist, that her political journey started in high school. Although at the time she had no idea that she would end up in Parliament, she knew that she wanted to fight for the rights of others. Bucwa says it was when she started learning about South African history and about the apartheid regime that she realised that she wanted to become a civil rights lawyer. She enrolled for a law degree at NMMU and she got involved in student politics. She adds that she understands what a huge responsibility it is, as she no longer speaks for herself, but for many young people back at home: “I now need to be an example; look it doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, but if you have a passion and you want to make a difference, you can.”
Extract from her Maiden Speech: “I am moved by WB Yeats’ call to action which cries to me, “But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; tread softly because you tread on my dreams.” These are the words echoed by my fellow young South Africans. These are words of a generation whose dreams have been denied, whose hope has been diminished, whose trust has been broken, whose talents have been crippled.  These are the words of a lost generation.... we are faced with a stark reality, a reality of a collapsing basic education system that fails to teach our children the very basics, never mind how to be critical thinkers. We are taught to look for jobs and not to create them. We are taught to be employees and not employers...  it is this generation – my generation – that will change the status quo.”
