operation love - mrs woods' special day

BY Administrator

After an exquisite border banquet in Mrs Woods' honour last night, Mrs Woods was the centre of attention at school today when the end of term assembly became a surprise assembly. Past headgirls and Zoleka Mtila (Class of 2010, The VoiceSA contestant) serenaded Mrs Woods as did Lemley and our ground staff, learners, Mrs Elie with musical accompaniament by Miss Mintoor, groups of girls in the hall with staff members dressed in school uniform who had learned to play musical instruments for the event. Mrs Stevens and a group of Grade 10s had shakers. Mr Calitz and a group performed on electric guitars. Mrs Hickson and some Grade 9s were on drums. Mrs Skeates and group of Grade 4s were on triangles (with some extra pots and spoons to increase the sound). Mrs Myburg did a musical bridge with two girl drummers on stage. Trumpets and trombones were Robyn Cloete, Mrs Stear and a group. Recorders were Grade 5s. Tamborines were Miss Potgieter and her hockey girls. Bells were Mrs Kruger and a group of Grade 8s. Violins were Mrs Stark, Carleen Braun and friends. Grade 10 choir did a beat box verse and Grade 11 and 12 choir started off the song from the gallery.The song "All you need is love" filled the hall. Mrs Woods was then escorted by her bodyguards (Mr Reynolds, Mr Weidemann and Mr Jonas) to her couch in the hall where Mr Calitz serenaded her with her favourite songs and he received a standing ovation from Mrs Woods, Yolanda Mni (Class of 2015) delivered a brilliant speech on Mrs Woods' contributions to Riebeek, the staff and the girs; and Siviwe Tole (Class of 2016) gave an awesome talk on the fruit of the spirit, a tribute video was played with photographs and clips of the girls commenting on Mrs Woods. Mrs Woods was escorted out of the hall by her bodyguards to Mango Groove's Nice to See You and a guard of honour was formed to the student centre with bunting featuring flags printed with photographs of Mrs Woods. She was given gifts along the way to make up a mosaic set for her retirement hobby and a puzzle compromising hundreds of photographs of her. Mrs Viljoen and her team outdid themselves with the guard of honour arrangements and gifts. She then enjoyed tea with the old and new senior prefects and the junior prefects. Thank you to the prefects' parents for their contributions to the tea - you all outdid yourselves with a delicious spread. Code Name: Operation Love - Over and Out - the eagle has landed - Mission Accomplished - a feel good day! Well done, girls and staff and Old Girls!
