IN THE SPOTLIGHT
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.
A circle of warmth on Mandela Day
Staff and pupils of QGHS embarked on a project to knit/crochet scarves in honour of Nelson Mandela Day. A total of 77 scarves were made and handed over to the residents of Restdale Nursing Home. Residents of the home greatly appreciated this kind gesture and wrapped themselves in the warm love, which the scarves symbolised, from the team at QGHS.
Congratulations to our spelling bee team. They came third in the spelling bees competition. Well done girls!!!
