IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Outgoing class of 2019 has made QGHS proud
The matriculants of QGHS have indeed brought great honour to their parents, the Principal, staff and fellow learners by producing a 100% pass rate.
12 years of hard work, with great effort and determination saw the 2019 matriculants at QGHS reap the rewards that bore the fruits of their excellent results.
An outstanding learner Amrisha Baboolall achieved 8 distinctions and was placed 7th in the Umlazi district. Holisha Chetty also achieved 8 distinctions. Danielle Raquel Govender, Shivanika Pillay, Simran Mrishana Premchund, Bronwyn Leigh Ramsamy, Saiyuri Thashmil Reddy all had 7 distinctions. Those that achieved 6 distinctions were Niressa Kayleigh Durai, Courtney-Lee Padaychee and Jadene Tarryn Pillay while Michaela Chetty achieved 5 distinctions.
Learners were filled with excitement but also apprehensive regarding their chosen field of studies. They expressed gratitude and gave thanks to their educators who played a crucial role in moulding them to be successful.
The principal and educators honoured the accolades of the top achievers at a special assembly and thereafter invited them to tea to wish them well on their new chapter at studying at various tertiary institutions.
50th Anniversary Picnic
The QGHS SGB, Principal and staff decided to embark on a picnic day to honour learners at QGHS for their hard work and contribution towards the 50th Anniversary celebration. An Infectious spirit of joy and happiness permeated our grounds as each class was provided with treats and refreshments. Learners opened their baskets and spread their blankets and enjoyed an afternoon of playing games, dancing and eating. Some classes brought cooked meals, other classes opted to braai. A spirit of camaraderie and celebration made this a special event that will be remembered for years to come.
QGHS Has Got Talent
On Monday 9 September at QGHS we hosted our annual talent show. The participants had spent many hours preparing for this event. Participants and learners were very welcoming of this event and more than the fun that was had, the relationships that were forged between the contestants and the rest of the school, was indeed a unifying experience.
QGHS really shone with talent as learners show cased their skills in the different categories skills. In the dance and poetry/ movement Mbalentle Mbuyeleni and Owethu Khanyi and in the singing category Sisanda Chonco won.
A hearty congratulations to all participants. We at QGHS are proud of you. You can see more pictures of the participants here.
Fun Run and Market Day
Our Fun Run was held on Wednesday, 07 August 2019. As a part of our fund-raising initiative, the Grade 9s held a very successful Market Day.
Stalls sold everything from juicy boerewors rolls and tasty mutton burgers from our braai section to tasty biryanis, cakes, sweets and savouries at our other stalls. Hot chips, the chocolate fountain and candy floss were also fast sellers.
Our sincere thanks to our Grade 9s and their parents for their contribution in cash or kind.
QGHS Honours their old girls
On Saturday the 29th of July Queensburgh Girls’ High School celebrated 50 years as an all girls’ school by hosting an old girls and teachers reunion. The school hall was alive with squeals of delight as teachers and pupils reunited. The team responsible for hosting the programme of the day did an excellent job in ensuring the function was a success. The old Girls were taken on a tour around the QGHS school campus where they were amazed by the amazing changes that the school had undergone while still maintaining the original ethos of the school. Ms Carrick an educator currently at QGHS, provided a wealth of information after her extensive research into the historical archives, which enabled the “Old Girls” to literally feel and relive their fond memories of their old school.
Retired Principal of QGHS, Mrs Gerber, who addressed the guests spoke humbly and with passion when she took a walk down memory lane and recalled momentous occasions first as a scholar and then as a principal at QGHS.
The ‘Old Girls’ Tea’ was a definite success and culminated in the ladies feeling a sense of nostalgia and gratitude for meeting with the old and reconnecting with the new.
