St Michael’s sisters enjoy a fun-filled evening


What has happened to the Sisters of St Michael’s? Has the school not been founded and run by a Sisterhood since 1874? 

For a while now, the Intermediate Phase has felt left out from the rest of the school; are they still part of the ‘babies’ in Foundation Phase, or are they part of the ‘older girls’?

Mrs Eileen Ndwere and her Marketing Team have decided to change this and to host an event that would bring the St Michael’s sisters together again: The Sistahood!

The guests were lucky to have an old girl, Thegofatso Malatji, as the guest speaker, as well as Christian Rapper, Chichi from Eunice, Grade 11 singers, Grade 10 dancers, and Mrs Noeline Stumpfe. 

Ms Malatji spoke about Jonah, messages from God and the types of people represented by the St Michael’s girls.

Girls from different grades roasted sausages and marshmallows around a cheerful bonfire providing a warm, comfortable togetherness while listening to Amapiano music, to which ‘Ama 2000s’ listen these days.

Bokang and Bonolo Manama enjoyed the guest speaker and they loved Chichi: ‘We cried; it was so beautiful.’

Kutloano Kapeng and Rethabile Mothobi enjoyed the evening but felt that there was too much talking and not enough fun and games. Many Grade 6 girls agree that more games would have given them the opportunity to get to know the older girls better.

Everyone agrees however that more evenings like this would be lovely.
