world kindness day and beanies

Riebeek College celebrated World Kindness Day as the culmination of our year of kindess during our Mandela100@Riebeek100+ acts of kindness campaign, part of our Ubuntu theme. Today, Mrs Stear showed some Grade 4s how to knit and had a look at the beanies that staff members have knitted to be donate to children with cancer.. Over 50 beanies have been knitted. The project started when Mrs Skeates, a Grade 4 teacher, found out the need from her friend, Susan Jakobs (who is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment). Next year Mrs Skeates plans to initiate a project of the knitting and selling beanies in aid of SPCA funds.

JOY TO THE WORLD

On Tuesday 27 November 2018, Riebeek College will be hosting their annual Carol service at 18:00 for 18:30. Tickets will be on sale at the door at R20. All proceeds of the service are donated to Child Welfare, Uitenhage. Learners of the school also donate gifts for needy children which Child Welfare then distributes.  It is beginning to feel like Christmas at Riebeek as the school is preparing for the annual Carol Service in aid of Child Welfare, Uitenhage.
The conductor for the concert is Miss Cathy-Jane Mintoor and accompanying on the piano will be Mrs Patty Metcalf. Performances will be rendered by the Junior School, Junior and Senior Choirs of the school. The guest performers will be a dance group from the Hadassah Performing Arts, the Elim Church, Uitenhage and the Variations String Quartet from Port Elizabeth.Included in the programme are favourites such as "Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer" by Johnny Marks, “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus by Tommie Connor and “Christmas is a time to love” by Maranatha. The audience will be invited to join in when some of the most well known carols are performed.

spca

The Riebeek Family has had a wonderful year of fundraising for our SPCA. An outstanding amount of R35 606.70 has been handed over to the SPCA. Lara Naidoo (SPCA head 2017/2018) and Sarah Werth (Deputy Head) can be seen here with treats and food to spoil the adorable cats and dogs at the SPCA. These items were collected by our old and new committee members and will be taken to the SPCA by Miss Jodi Hattingh. Our sincere thanks to everyone who opened their hearts this year to make this all possible.

archery nationals

During the September holiday, Amy Higgins and Megan Mac Gorman represented Riebeek College in the National Tournament Archery Competition in Rustenburg, North West. Although the road was long and tiring, the excitement of the trip was enough to keep their spirits high. After a day of relaxation at the resort and a dip in the pool, the girls were ready to face the competing schools. There were over 630 archers who took part, so the competition was definitely tough! After shooting 3D on the first day, the girls were exhausted and spent most of their time napping in the sun while waiting for the other archers to finish up. The first day was not as successful as the girls had hoped, as the nerves got the better of them, but Amy said, “Neve rmind, tomorrow’s another day. We’ll show them!” And indeed they did, as the next day both girls shot 50 on Bullseye, which is the highest score one can shoot. They were awarded archery necklaces for their achievement, and definitely held the Riebeek name high. Megan also beat her personal best score with a score of 273. When it was time to return home, the girls were sad to leave, but Megan said, “I can’t wait to fall asleep without the sound of peacocks screeching and to wake up without seeing baboons running all over the place!” The experience was one that they will never forget, and the phrase that everyone will remember them by is: “We don’t wear bows, we shoot them!”

debating of 27 october

Riebeek College debaters went to Grahamstown/Makhanda on 27th October to debate against Nstika Senior Secondary. The girls had a wonderful day of spirited debating. The senior team debated the motion This House Supports military intervention in sovereign states, Riebeek proposed the motion and took the debate. The junior team debated the motion This House Believes That graduates must perform a year of community service, Riebeek opposes the motion and lost to Ntiska. Following a light lunch, the debaters were mixed into new debate teams composed of Riebeek and Nstika learners, to prepare an unseen motion, This House Supports mother tongue education.
Highlights of the day were meeting Mrs Barnard, Ms Barnard’s mother, who is also an English teacher who coached debating and making many new friends. A huge thank you to the staff and learners of Ntiska for their hospitality and friendship.
