PRINCIPAL’S NOTE

 

Greetings to all,

Phew, what a term we had! Finally, we can breathe a sigh of relief as we going to a short yet much-needed recess. For the school, this affords a chance to reflect on a busy term we had. In case you missed it, our school started year on a positive note with 76,9 ,pass rate of Class 2018 still within the set target by the district. The school was awarded a Bronze certificate for the effort. With a school replete with opportunities it’s only discernible that we shall aim too much better performance for the Class 0f 2019 and go for the GOLD. Here are the snippets for HKCS 2018 academic year.

Academic and Co curricula Programme:

 

This term has seen a remarkable improvement in learner attainment levels albeit only term test and CASS marks are used for promotion. We have to acknowledge the efforts of our dedicated educators and the overwhelming support from our partners.

 

 Reading Clubs started in earnest in Term 1, thanks to the enthusiastic Jolande Swartz the SK [Sifunda Kunye- Manager] for championing the cause. These sessions play an important role in uplifting the community as they are un-discriminatory for attendance.

The sporting festival organized by SK, which was held in Zwelitsha offered an opportunity for our learners to pit their talents against sister schools. A cherry on top, our school was crowned 2019 soccer champions for the first time asking.

The TPA (The President Awards) program is in full swing, our learners attended a two -day workshop which involves learners in senior classes. This year, the group is going for a silver medal.

 

Keeping in touch with environment, our learners were taken through a painful journey of Rhino poaching through a documentary [STROOP] produced by Susan Scott and Bonne De Bod. A real eye-opener.

 

To curb the scourge of drugs and substance abuse bedeviling our communities, together with the local policing we had a successful campaign.

 

Last but not least, the school hosted 14 learners and 2 teachers from Finland as part of our ongoing partnership in exchange       of cultural and educational expertise.

 

Conclusion:

 

Allow me then to thank you in assisting us to shape the future of the young minds and wishing you a peaceful holiday with family.

 

All the best and enjoy this edition.
