IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Vega School Motivates QGHS Visual Arts Learners’ Creativity
The Grade 11 and 12 Visual Arts learners of QGHS enjoyed an educational excursion at the end of Term 2 hosted by Vega School. Learners were given the task of working on a brand solution for QGHS. The learners were introduced to the career opportunities that were available to enhance their creativity through courses offered by Vega School.
From corporate creativity learners were introduced to the world of professional art at the Etchings Gallery, which is home to a range of locally and internationally celebrated professional artists. Here they had the unique opportunity to hear from one of South Africa’s greatest painters, John Smith, about his journey through the world of art and how it led to his success.
This was a truly enlightening art experience.
QGHS Shines Again with the Jes Foord Foundation Initiative
At Queensburgh Girls’ High School our aim is to produce not only well-educated young ladies but compassionate, caring global citizens. To this purpose our Representative Council of Learners chose a worthy cause to support each year. This year we decided to support the Handbag project which is an initiative of the Jes Foord Foundation. This project aims to provide handbags for adults and backpacks for children, filled with items to provide comfort to rape survivors in the first few hours after their ordeal. As the alarming statistics in our country show that 1 in 5 women are raped, we felt this would be a worthy and relevant initiative for an all-girls schools to undertake.
As our school turns 50 this year, we set a goal of 50 bags to be collected and filled with items such as soap, facecloths, read more.
