Grade 8s warmly welcomed

A heart-warming Basher Ceremony with their skivvy mistresses launched the Grade 8s into their high-school career. In the homily, Reverend Trewern spoke encouraging words of wisdom to the Grade 8s. He believed that they were ready for high school despite it being said to be difficult and that they had done well so far. He shared the phrase ‘Deus lux mea est’, which means ‘God is my light’ with them.

Beauty, brains and an athlete too.

Ms Rumarie van der Walt recently joined St Michael’s as the new Mathematics teacher, replacing Mrs Elizabeth Venter. Before becoming a Maths teacher, she studied Human Movement Science, obtained an Honours degree in Sports Science and completed a post-graduate diploma in education (PGCE). She discovered that she enjoyed Mathematics when she taught Master Maths at Grey. She was appointed at Sand du Plessis High School prior to St Michael’s.
