Die verwagte geesweek het ook begin. Met die twee vakansiedae wat volg, het ons besluit om die gees al vroeg in die week op te wek. Ons het Donderdag afgeskop met graad 12’s wat soos onderwysers moes aantrek, terwyl die onderwysers weer hulle skooljare herleef het deur die dag in skooluniforme te dra.
The annual Sports Dance took place on Thursday night. This is a prestigious dance where the school’s winter sports teams are introduced in a formal manner. The teams wear formal black dresses and suits and perform a dance for the school. It’s a chance for the teams to be celebrated.
Vrydag was enigiets behalwe ‘n gewone skooldag. Die leerders het met die kreatiefste “skoene” skool toe gekom – van rolskaatse en veiligheidsskoene tot 2-liter plastiekbottels as skoene. Almal het deelgeneem aan hierdie aktiwiteit.
Friday was also “Pie-a-teacher” day, where students could pay to pie their favorite teacher. This activity promotes a positive spirit between the students and the teachers.
