Subject Fair

BY Jessica Schoeman

The annual Subject Choice Fair was held on 29 September with the Grade 10s presenting speeches and hosting information tables. The teachers were all very impressed with the Grade 10s whose presentations and effort was amazing! The Grade 9s were a well behaved audience and they asked good questions and responded well to the presentations.   During this event, we as grade 10s shared little pearls of wisdom with the Grade 9s as we led them into the typical life of a Grade 10 by sharing our personal experiences with our subject choices.

Through the use of visual aids such as posters and through the enthusiastically delivered speeches, we gave the Grade 9s some insight as to what each subject entails and what their expectations of each subject should be with regards to workload and the benefits of choosing these subjects.

The nostalgic image of how we eagerly ran to the student centre as Grade 9s last year came to mind as we were prepping for this event. Our minds absorbed all the information we received from the current Grade 11s like sponges, and all that information helped us choose our subjects wisely. This nostalgic though filled us with great anticipation and excitement as we had the chance to pass our wisdom and knowledge to this year’s Grade 9 as the Grade 11s had done for us.

Today could be best described in a quote by Walt Disney, “Around here we don’t look backwards for very long… We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things because we’re curious… And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

To the Grade 9s heading down their new subject paths, we hope you have an amazing Grade 10 year, one filled joy and passion in all that you will learn, as learning is a gift that follows its owner for life. A year is a 365 page book, so we hope that you will write the best Grade 10 book ever.

We would like to say thank you to our teachers for their guidance and for motivating us to do our best.
