Yesterday's High School Final Assembly ended on high when an honours blazer was awarded to Mokgethi Mkalipe. Mokgethi already received her white blazer earlier this term, when it was announced that she has been elected head girl of Brescia House School for 2018. Yesterday, she was awarded full honours having achieved full colours in four disciplines, namely Academic, Public Speaking, Drama and Leadership. Her excellent academic record spans her entire school career, and she was awarded full colours for academics at our recent prize-giving ceremony. She is a talented actress; she has completed her grade 7 examination in Speech and Drama with Trinity College of London with distinction, and has played significant roles in a number of productions. Eloquent and well-spoken, she has demonstrated her public-speaking skills at countless events and competitions and in November, she was recognised by her peers and teachers for her inspiring leadership qualities when she was elected as head girl for 2018. Mokgethi is a most worthy recipient of this award and we extend our warmest congratulations to her.

The Inter-House Music was a most spirited way to end off the year. The girls showcased their many talents from singing, to dancing, acting and playing a variety of musical instruments. Their talents were met with great applause, sheering and the customary sing-a-long. Well done to winners Brescia, with Laurus and Merici tied for second place.

On Monday 4th December, the high school girls participated in the annual inter-house quiz. With spirits high, they began the quiz with a spelling bee and ended off with the category of entertainment - everyone's favourite. Many laughs were shared while the girls put their minds together in the hopes of winning points for their houses. The quiz tested general knowledge, current affairs as well as schoolwork done in class. It is definite that the girls learnt some bizarre and interesting facts that they will hopefully remember for next time! It was a fun and interactive morning involving lots of teamwork and brainpower.

Final results: Merici 3rd with 6 points; Brescia and Laurus tie 1st with 9 points each

Sarah Buchanan, Laura da Silva and Zoë Kohler participated in the Gordon Institute of Business Science Spirit of Youth Programme. The course, which ran from February to October, included 150 grade 11 learners from around Gauteng. We thoroughly enjoyed this leadership programme, which helped us see the South Africa, Africa and the world from a different perspective and gave us the opportunity to work with other learners, which are essentially the future leaders. The course helped us grow as leaders and we are very grateful to Brescia House School, for giving us this incredible opportunity.
