Grade 8 orientation 2018

BY Mrs R. Meyers

On Wednesday, 17th January the Grade 8s were officially welcomed into our school with a 2 hour orientation programme presented by  Miss R. Meyers (Grade 8 Grade Head and 8C Register Teacher), Mrs J. Myburg (8G Register Teacher), Mrs H. Ferreira (8R Register Teacher) and Mrs K. Stear (Principal).
The presentation was interactive with the purpose of informing the Grade 8s of the rules and regulations of our school, the Riebeek way of life and to prepare them on a practical basis for the transition from junior to senior school.
Amongst the topics discussed were: “How to achieve academic success”; “Conflict resolution in the classroom”; “The power of peer pressure”; and “The importance of extra-curricular activities”.
Mrs Stear also spoke to the girls about our new initiative called “Spirit of the College”, this initiative encourages learners to participate in school activities and to be part of  Riebeek life. The school’s vision for 2018 was also shared: “Ubuntu”. We explained to the girls that we would like our school to be a place where our interactions are based on our inter-connectivity, where the Riebeek Tribe practice compassion, kindness, generosity, respect, honesty and conscious awareness and asked them assist in achieving and sustaining our goals because Riebeek is a special place with a great spirit.
We would like to thank Mrs K. Stear, Mrs S. Gerber, Miss R. Meyers, Mrs J. Myburg and Mrs H. Ferreira for their immaculate input in ensuring that the Grade 8 orientation programme would be a huge success, and it was. Lastly, WE would like to thank the Grade 8s of 2018 for their amazing school spirit, being hopeful and excited to start their high school careers. May your new journey at Riebeek College be far and beyond what you imagined.

peter Pan team building

BY Drew MInter

The club committees got together on Friday 19 January and took a trip around Riebeek’s very own Neverland as the annual team building afternoon’s theme was Peter Pan.  The event was filled with spirited Peter Pans and Captain Hooks  enthusiastically searching for Grade 9s dressed up as characters. Cultural Board  was placed in first place, Interact in second place and Computer Club was placed third. Because of the humidity, the teams then moved to the hall to test out their beautiful karaoke voices. Drama took everything to the next level and won the Best Spirit Award while Phly Thread won best dressed as crocodiles. The atmosphere was filled with laughs and team banter followed by spectacular team work uniting all committees. Thank you to Mateenah Langford and the Cultural Board, with the help of Mrs Gerber, for the well organized event. The  Technical Crew are thanked for stepping in when the heat became too much and turned this year’s Team Building into an afternoon of absolute fun for us all to enjoy. Well done to the Grade 8s who joined teams to fill gaps and earned the first Spirit of the College signatures to contribute towards their awards.  Well done to the Grade 9s who were our hidden characters and dressed up so well.

Sport and Society - an introduction

BY By Sinovuyo Madlavu

The annual Sports and Societies’ Fair was a wonderful way to start off the Riebeek cultural calendar. It is always amazing to see the excitement throughout the high school during this event. Sports and Societies’ fair is used as a platform to promote all the different clubs and sports in the school and to encourage learners to become more involved. This year, we are excited to announce the introduction of 2 new sports – volleyball and netball, as well as 2 new clubs – Band and Chess. We are also starting a grade 8 initiative called, the “Spirit of the College”. This was brought in to involve the younger grades more in extra mural school life, as most club committees can only be joined from Grade 10. Spirit of the College is a way for the Grade 8s to get recognition for their contribution and participation in societies and school life. There are several rewards for this participation; the highest of these being awarded a “Spirit of the College” badge that learners may keep until matric. There are truly no downsides to being involved at Riebeek!  This will help girls when they apply for committees to prove that they have shown an interest and deserve to be considered for committees and for awards. The heads of societies are congratulated on the decor of their tables and their ability to answer hundreds of questions in a short time. With 18 societies and 6 sports (including Chess), there is something for everyone!
