The Grade 1 girls started off the morning at our beautiful Chapel. The girls learnt about St Ursula, said a prayer and prayed for our families and friends.

They then finished off the morning with an exciting Inter house athletics programme with the Grade Rs.

We wish all our girls and families a wonderful restful half term. Travel safely and see you on Tuesday.

On Thursday, 11th of October the Chiropractic Association of South Africa (CASA) and the University of Johannesburg did free spinal screenings in honour of World Spine Day. This opportunity allowed our grade 1-3 girls to have their backs checked specifically to detect any spinal abnormalities such as Scoliosis (side to side curves of the spine) and Kyphosis (abnormal backward curve of the spine). The screening involved a few simple exercise movements and a spine assessment. The students complimented us on the manners and behaviour of our girls-well done!
