Month: November 2019
THE SOUTH AFRICA AGENCY FOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY ADVANCEMENT (SAASTA), in collaboration with the Harmony Mine Group, honoured top science learners from across the country during the September holidays. The SAASTA debaters, along with Astroquiz and Olympiad achievers in Life Science, Physical Science and Natural Science from all over South Africa, attended the event that took place at the CSIR’s International Convention Centre in Pretoria.
Speech Night, Valedictory, Songs of Celebration and Carol Service. These are only a few of the events that happened during the fourth term. Although the fourth term is usually seen as the most important term of the year, with final exams and all, St Michael’s fourth term is also by far the busiest one.
The Matrics of 2019 arrived at the venue @ Tonic in classical style. The venue, dressed in gold and red, was adorned with glittering lights complemented by towering white centre pieces.
THE NEW GRADE 6 monitors were announced in chapel. Monitoring duties alternated during the first two terms of 2019 and now it was time for the final group of monitors to be announced.
St Michael’s mourn the loss of little Lesedi Mokone (Grade R) who died in a tragic car accident in Parys early in October. The school extends sincere condolences to her loved ones.
THE ANTICIPATION was palpable again weeks before Sale of Work this year. Teachers and learners were organising, cutting, pasting, folding, stringing and even sewing.
