Dear Parents, Pupils, Alumnae and Staff

Our annual knitted teddy campaign is well under way – thank you to everyone who has already delivered items to the school. The closing date for handing in teddies is 3 July (see attachment for details and patterns). Please also support our school's knitted/crocheted squares, beanies, scarves or blanket campaign collection drive. We hope to be able to donate lots of warm items to various needy folk around our city for Mandela day– the aged, the young, the abandoned and ill. One item from you can change the life of someone else for ever – they KNOW that a stranger "out there" cared enough to make something just for them. Please follow our school Blog or Facebook page to see letters of acknowledgement from the NPO's who receive these products.

Kind regards

Liz

On Friday 19 May 2017, the grade 10s were fortunate to attend a lecture and workshop by Mr Gareth Dry, in which Mr Dry discussed the life and times of William Shakespeare and involved the girls in an interactive workshop focused on the Shakespearean play, Romeo and Juliet.

In his lecture, Mr Dry elaborated on Shakespeare's life and addressed many of the myths regarding Shakespeare's younger years, his marriage and his lifestyle. Mr Dry also discussed the extent to which the English language has been influenced by words and phrases originally coined by Shakespeare.

After Mr Dry's lecture, the grade 10s participated in an interactive workshop, which they seem to have enjoyed thoroughly. According to the grade 10s and their English teachers, the following were some of the highlights of the workshop:

  • the girls appreciated the different perspectives, mindsets and techniques that were provided to assist them to read and understand Shakespeare's works
  • they also found the concept of workshopping the play quite novel and exciting
  • they particularly enjoyed the interactive sections where they got to act out the plot synopsis
  • they liked that they were given tools to identify metre and rhyme, and through an analysis of dialogue, were shown how these devices help to convey meaning

The grade 10 girls and their English teachers alike found this experience interesting and very beneficial. We are grateful to Mr Gareth Dry for giving up his time to come and spend the morning with us.

The grade 1s used the iPads and the Tellagami App to share their news with the class. They each had a turn to create an avatar and a background and then record their voices. Afterwards the whole class got to watch the clips.

The theme for Catholic Schools Week is Walking Forward Together. Today the girls had a Prayer Day in the Chapel. They all drew pictures depicting 'walking forward with others' - with our school, with their families, with each other.
