The grade 11 Geography class went on their outing to the top of the Magaliesberg on Thursday 14th June. The weather really helped to make this an in-depth Geography experience, as the girls also experienced cold front weather. Nonetheless, they went ahead and investigated the ridge, the poort where the dam wall was built and the impact of the ridge and the dam on settlement patterns and lines of communication. They ended off the day with lunch at Chameleon Village, as it was more sheltered from the elements, and got to speak to the craft market traders about the pros and cons of having a stall in this area.

With netball season already finished it is time to celebrate two admirable achievements.

The grade 6 B team enjoyed a wonderful season by only losing 1 match. The A team went one better and went through the season unbeaten - winning all their matches!

Some great teamwork and a high level of skills was shown by all the girls. In addition to their achievement, the team spirit shown by the girls was exemplary and a positive example to many other sports teams.

Towards the end of the first term 7 High School pupils submitted work for the National Eisteddfod Academy Youth artist award 2018 competition.

The organisers of the festival stipulated that only work of a very high standard should be entered. The criteria for works that are submitted is that the work / the pupil doing the work should have already been recognised in other festivals for the level of their skill, or that they have been selected for internal exhibitions, based on the level of skill shown in the work.

Alexandra Tserkezis, Stephanie Merchak, Hannah Silcock, Taeya Dukes, Jessica Frohlich and Alexandra Amsinck all received certificates for having work selected to be exhibited at the final exhibition – which was displayed at the final prize giving evening.

Hannah Silcock received the award for the best work in the grade 9 category and Alexandra Amsinck received the award for the best work in the grade 11 category. Well done girls.

The Curiosity Initiative started in November 2015, when four Grade 10 Brescia House School girls were challenged, as part of the worldwide Microsoft Student Ambassadors program, to run a project that will make a difference in the community.The girls identified that traditionally girls do not choose IT as a career path, nor do many girls select IT as a matriculation subject at school. The girls came up with an idea to host a special elegant dinner for girls, like themselves, who were interested in a career in IT.

The first Curiosity Dinner was held in May 2016 when one hundred and thirty Grade 11 girls representing thirty-six schools from all over Gauteng, enjoyed a special sponsored dinner, along with one hundred IT or CAT teachers and various professionals from the IT industry. In 2017 Brescia House School hosted 200 girls representing forty-four Schools across Gauteng and Mpumalanga.

This year Brescia House School expanded the Curiosity Initiative to include an afternoon of workshops, covering various topics and followed by a special dinner. The workshops focused on latest technologies and devices; including Micro-bits, Robotics, Coding, Green Screen Movie Making and more. During the dinner, the girls sat with a range of IT professionals, giving them the opportunity to share ideas about women in the technology industry.

One hundred and fifty-seven girls registered to attend the workshops in the afternoon, and two hundred and ten girls registered to attend the dinner in the evening.The girls represented forty-three schools from across Gauteng and one School from Kuruman, Northern Cape.

The initiative relies on the generous sponsorship of companies such as FNB, Microsoft, IT related Companies and various IT professionals to allow the girls and their teachers to attend the workshops and special dinner for free.
