The Senior Marimba Band and the Poetry Society performed at the Life Orientation Youth Celebration at Groote Schuur High School this weekend. 

The Youth Celebration was addressed by the Minister of Education for the Western Cape, Mrs Debbie Schafer and the Deputy Director-General, Mr Brian Schreuder.

The Senior Marimba Band gave a mesmerising performance throughout the morning with their highly spirited and rhythmical pieces. Mpho Ngexe captivated the audience with the poem he wrote and recited.  He received a standing ovation.

Debating Duo Dominates

Posted by on in News

 

Keren Parker (Grade 10) and Kelsey Everts (Grade 12) entered the British Parliamentary Debating League run by the Cape Town Speaking Academy earlier this year. The tournament ran at UCT over four weekends in April and May.

At the league debates, Kelsey and Keren spoke in a different format to the one we normally use for interschool competitions. In the British Parliamentary format, there are only two people on a team, and a much shorter preparation time - only 20 minutes from receiving the topic to starting the debate. The girls participated in 7 preliminary rounds, and just squeaked through to the semi-finals. Despite being the underdogs coming into the semi-finals, they knocked out one of the top ranked teams in their semi, and progressed to the finals.

They did not win the finals, but they still did tremendously well and we are very proud of them.
