In 6 years the Grade 6s will be there, in 7 years the Grade 5s and in 11 years the Grade 1s: 40 Days. The final 40 days before the Grade 12s start writing their final exams.
The Junior School shared in the excitement by joining the line of honour through which the Grade 12s walked to the hockey fields.
Girls were appropriately dressed as superheroes, saying goodbye to their superheroes and foreshadowing the superheroes they will become one day. There were Hulks, Super Girls, soldiers, doctors, nurses, and many more.
‘I am Super Girl because she can fly and is so strong!’ said the super enthusiastic masked hero, who just so happened to be a Grade 2 learner.
Another Grade 2 learner dressed up as Ladybug, whom she says is her favourite superhero because she is awesome!
Many girls dressed up as their parents, who are nurses, doctors and policemen and women. They describe their parents as hard-working and brave: their superheroes!
The Carer’s Club sold delicious cupcakes, which was a big hit. Father Grant was running up and down to provide more and more cupcakes! Half of the money raised went to Kids with Cancer and the other half to the Carer’s Club.
Unfortunately, the day ended on a rather sour note as high school girls romped and raved around while Junior School girls had to go back to their lessons.
