Jamie-Lee plays for the Uitenhage Golf Club. She started playing golf at the age of four. She was inspired to do so after watching her dad and sister play golf. Thirteen years later she continues to play the sport she enjoys and devotes two hours a day practicing and perfecting her game.

GRADE 12 TIME CAPSULES

 The grade 12G class opened their grade 9 time capsules they made in 2013. The morning was filled with laughter and good memories and the class thought this quote was very befitting : "it's the oldest story in the world. One day, you're 17 and you're planning for someday. And then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life."
