IN THE SPOTLIGHT
A budding author – The rise of a star
Queensburgh Girls’ High is honoured to announce the rise of one of their own writers, Grade 12 learner, Asande Dube. Asande, born and raised in Umlazi, started writing poems at the age of eleven and songs at the age of twelve.
She was inspired to write stories by her mother who was instrumental in getting her first story published. Asande was recently inspired by her English teacher, Mrs S. Sewnarain in completing her creative writing piece for a school based Assessment task in Grade 12 by using elements of vivid image and expression which she then applied to a short story she entered in a competition.
The story that is now being published, ‘Dreaming in a Blue Neighbourhood’, is a fantasy story about a group of teenagers taking a trip to a deserted place without their parents’ knowledge. It is a moving, compassionate and beautifully written short story which is a powerful testament of the triumph of the human spirit.
To get this story published, Asande entered the “Teen Short stories writing program” run by the “African Teen Authors Book Initiative (ATABI)”. The initiative was looking for 25 outstanding stories written by African Teens in each African country. The chosen stories would form part of the Anthology of 25 stories of that country. The aim was to promote writing and reading of African stories. Asande Dube was one of the lucky writers whose beautiful story has been chosen to feature in the Anthology.
The principal and staff at QGHS extend their heartfelt congratulations to Asande. We are extremely proud of her.

Grade 12 Visual Arts Retrospective Exhibition
We are very proud of our grade 12 Visual Arts learners who recently had their Retrospective Exhibition. This year, due to COVID-19, we were unable to do an exhibition for our QGHS family. We however, took a few pictures and made a video compilation to share with the rest of the QGHS family. I am sure you will agree we have talented girls.
