Out of the Hat… – News from the Lady Principal


Welcome to Term 2.  I hope you all had a relaxing holiday and are ready for another busy term.

NEW SEATING AREA
The new seating area for the girls has been completed and work on widening the driveway and entrance has begun.

We officially welcome Humayrah Ally as an Accounting, Mathematical Literacy and CAT teacher in the Senior School, and Gina Lauterbach as the Grade 2 locum teacher. We also welcome Kurt Thomas and Wilson Sokhela to the Estates Department and Luyolo Mabena as a trainee driver.

Catherine Lewis has taken over as the Grade 9 Coordinator; Humayrah Ally is a Grade 9 class teacher (9H) and Jane Howes has taken over from Catherine Lewis as a Grade 12 class teacher (12L).

We also extend our congratulations to Jerry Padayachee on the birth of his son, Amelio and Jenny du Plessis on the birth of her daughter, Penelope.

HOLIDAY SPORTS
Many girls and staff had a busy sporting holiday, starting with the U13 Netball and Hockey Festival held at TWC. The 1st hockey and netball squads travelled up to Johannesburg to participate in festivals and this was a great way for them to start their seasons. The netball team played particularly well coming 4th out of 32 teams. The u15 netball team won their tournament at Camp Discovery. Girls were also involved in athletics, swimming, equestrian, table tennis and canoeing during the holiday. Thank you to all parents who supported the girls.

RUSSIA TOUR
During the holiday 38 girls, accompanied by 3 staff members, went on tour to Russia and from all accounts had a cold, but wonderful time.

MARKET DAY – TUESDAY 1 MAY – SEE YOU THERE
Our annual Market Day takes place on Tuesday 1 May and we are looking forward to seeing you there.

Have a great term.
Sue Tasker
Lady Principal
