Eleanor house day

BY Mrs L. Stroebel

Eleanor girls and staff decided that for their annual house day, they wanted to raise funds for Dano Swart, a fellow Grade 12 learner from Brandwag, who was badly injured during a rugby match. Our guest speaker, Ms Nerine Loock, is well-known to all at Riebeek, as our school psychologist. She is also involved with Dano, as she is his rugby team’s physiotherapist. Ms. Loock gave an uplifting talk about living in the moment and not taking anything for granted. Eleanor house captain, Maceyla van Huyssteen, proudly handed over a cheque of R3 326 to Dano’s rugby coach, who joined our assembly on behalf of Dano and his family. The Eleanor matrics and staff worked tirelessly to raise as much as we possibly could in the two weeks we had before our house assembly. Our emoji favours were a huge success, and Maceyla van Huyssteen won the prize for buying the most, a whopping 150! Megan MacGorman and Gabriella Hardman won prizes for accumulating the second most favours. We also had a “guess the number of jellybeans in the jar” competition, and this was won by Liyabona Mgushelo, who was spot on with her guess of 789! Mrs Stroebel is extremely proud of all the hard work put in by all the Eleanor girls, and very thankful that everyone supported our house so generously.
