Fond Farewell to our Exchange Student from Germany
On Friday, our Grade 9s said farewell to Julius Hanke, one of our AFS exchange students. Julius lives in Bad Iburg in Germany and joined us for 8 weeks. His time with us was short but he became part of our school family and found a way to our hearts.
During the assembly on Friday, Julius had the opportunity to share some of his experiences in South Africa with the grade and thanked his host family, the Ameerodiens, and Pinelands High School.
Our Grade 9 band bid him a fond farewell by performing ‘Maria, Maria’ by Carlos Santan and Leela Moodley performed an electric guitar solo to ‘Cruel Summer’.
We wish Julius well and hope that he comes back to visit us again soon.
