Our annual Cultural Day took place today. The morning kicked-off with House plays (with Laurus being awarded winning House), followed by marimbas, open mic and a performance by the St John's Jazz band. The show-stopper had to be the staff item, followed by an impromptu concert. School of cool!

The annual Alumnae vs Matric sports day took place yesterday afternoon. The Alumnae won the netball match against the matrics, while the hockey game saw the matrics victorious over the Alumnae. There was also a netball match that pitted the matric netball girls against the hockey coaches. Needless to say the result of this match remains hotly contested, but it is agreed that a great time was had by all.

Nompumelelo Tshabala in Grade 11 auditioned with the American Academy of Ballet, based in NYC in November 2016 and was offered a scholarship for an intensive 6-week programme incorporating all dance styles. The AAB Summer Programme recruits young dancers from all over the world who show promise, particularly in classical ballet.

However, due to Grade 11 commitments, Mpumi could not take part in the full 6 week programme. She instead opted to do the 2 week programme. The dancers take part in performance/ballet productions at the end of each week of training. Congratulations to Mpumi for this wonderful achievement.
