YEAR 2014 HIGHLIGHTS


  FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL

2014 is going to be a year full of milestones for St. Monica’s Diocesan School. Our first group ofgrade1 2014 Grade 12 learners will be sitting for matric examinations, as well as it being the year that the school celebrates its 20th anniversary.

This year, we once again, welcomed a number of new faces in the pre-school. The newcomers settled in very quickly with only a couple of tears shed. These dried up very quickly when the staff busied the pre-schoolers with fun activities.

A special welcome is extended to all the Grade 1 learners, who arrived at ‘big’ school in their crisp, new uniforms and were welcomed into colourful classrooms with plenty of activities planned for the day.

A warm St. Monica’s welcome is extended to all our new learners in the other grades as well as a number of new staff.

SPECIAL Occasions

Prayer Day

 

Father Francis, the Chaplain of St. Monica’s suggested that the school have an Annual Prayer Day100 6380A where learners, staff and parents are invited to join together in prayer.

Our first Prayer Day was held on Friday, 7th February 2014. All learners from Grade 4 to 12 congregated at the Intermediate Phase and were joined by parents, staff and learners from Khanya and Magadla. It was a moving ceremony with Father Francis opening proceedings with a powerful message and prayer. The SCA groups from St. Monica’s, Khanya and Magadla performed some gospel songs during the course of the ceremony. Prayers for Administration, teachers and parents were performed by Rev. Mohale, Rev. Zoleka and Father Francis. The proceedings were closed when the learners all prayed together,

We the learners of St. Monica’s bow before you O God in reverence of what you have been to us.

We praise you for the wonderful work you did in the creation of the world. We awe the existence of the heavens, the earth and all that is within it.

Merciful and good Father we lay our lives into your hands. We plead that you may prepare us to be moulded by the teachings of this school. Change us Father so that your name may be glorified.

Bless our school Lord and our principal. Defend and protect our teachers from the snares of the evil one. Form and strengthen a love bond between us and our teachers. Help us to view them as our parents.

As for us learners, give us new eyes to regard one another as brother and sister.

Never allow us to be separated from you, the Almighty God.

Do all this through the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN

St. Monicas' 20th birthday celebrations

20th Birthday Celebrations:

On Saturday, 12 April, St. Monica’s held its 20th birthday celebrations. The day was an official school day for all learners and parents, grandparents, siblings, past members of staff and board members were also invited. Never in the history of the school, were so many people gathered under one roof, well, a marquee to celebrate a school event. We had prepared seating for 1200 people and by the time the ceremony started, all of the seats were taken and people were standing.

The guests started arriving from 07h30, to the tantalising aroma of bacon frying as the pre-school staff made bacon and egg rolls. The ceremony began at 08h45 with a welcome by the master of ceremonies, Mrs van der Watt and an opening prayer by Mrs Annie Steenkamp. Thereafter, long-service awards were handed over to three members of staff; Princess Magadla for 20 years of service to the school, MaRichard Seshea for 20 years of service to the school and Joyce Mothlaudi for 22 years of service to the school (she had served for 2 years at the St. Stephens pre-school out of which St. Monica’s grew, prior to St. Monica’s opening it’s doors. During the rest of the programme, guests were entertained by our junior and senior choirs and drama items by the senior drama group. During Mr Pretorius’ message he referred to St. Monica, after whom the school was named. The story goes that St. Monica was a mother of 3 children, born in 331AD. She was honoured by the Roman Catholic Church for her outstanding Christian values, but more importantly than that, she dedicated her life praying for her eldest son, Augustine, to reform. He was wayward and lazy, resisting Christianity. It is said that apart from praying for him everyday, she wept for him every night. The lesson we learn from her is persistence in the faith that God will work through you if you do not give up. She did not give up on her son, but, and this is important, she refused to accept his resistance to living a Christian life. There’s a story that she chased Augustine away from her dinner table one night because she was so angry with him. Despite his continued resistance, she persisted and it took 17 years of prayer, before Augustine turned from his evil ways and converted to Christianity. He later became St. Augustine. It is indeed fitting for a school to be named after such a dedicated mother. A special birthday wish from Trevor and Samia Hubble, the founders of the school, who now reside in the UK, was read out. At the end of the ceremony, a cake with 20 candles was brought onto the stage and the whole congregation sang happy birthday. Lebeoana Diaho in grade 1, then blew out the candles and cut the cake.

Thereafter, parents, staff, learners and guests left the marquee to participate in the activities planned for the day, which included; face-painting, laduma, pool-noodle fighting, goal-throwing, sack-race, hoola-hoop, egg-race, shoe-game and marimba’s workshop. Many of the staff were also very busy selling food at the various refreshment stalls.

All-in-all, a good time was had by all and, we at St. Monica’s, thank everyone who shared this special occasion with us, the staff for all of their planning, all of the people who have played a role over the last twenty years, in getting us to where we are today and our Heavenly Father,

Mr D Pretorius - Principal 

 

Matric Farewell 2014

St. Monica’s finally had the opportunity to host our very own Matric Farewell for the first time. The Matric 1theme chosen was “Masquerade Ball”. As the matriculants started arriving, amidst crowds of spectators, they were ushered into the lecture room where they were each given a mask of their choice.

Shortly afterwards, they graced the rest of the guests which included their parents, the staff and board members, with their presence in their beautiful outfits. Each and every young gentleman and lady from the 2014 Matric class looked absolutely stunning.

After a few short speeches from the headmaster and head prefects, dinner was served which was followed by photographs and dancing.

The following people are thanked for their time, effort and contributions made toward the success of the function:

* Theme, Décor & Menu’s – Ms S Joubert, Ms N Niehaus, Ms C Boltman, Ms C van ZylMatric 2

* Invitations – Ms S Bloem

Induction Service for school Chaplain

 

Father Francis Mafunda was officially inducted as the School Chaplain by the Vicar General of InductionUmzimvubu Anglican Diocese, the Right Reverend Sitembele Mzamane, on Tuesday 06 September 2014. As the School Chaplain he will provide spiritual and emotional support to learners, staff and parents in the school community. Spirituality is at the heart of every subject we teach.

 

The ceremony was attended by more than 150 people including Grade 10 and 11 learners, the Anglican church choir and other priests from Anglican churches namely Father Lloyd-Jones who is the chairperson of the school, Father Mlandu of St. Michael’s, Father Xhosana of Chibini Mission, Rev. Bitshana of St. Augustine, Rev. Mohali, Rev Qobo of Zionist Church and Father Cetshwayo of St. Stephens.

 

Mr Pretorius, our school principal began the ceremony by introducing all the dignitaries present. He described the beautiful work that Father Francis has done thus far at our school. Bishop Mzamane also had a powerful message for the learners. He reminded them to always have God in their lives and that with Him all things are possible. He then laid his hands on Father Francis in solemn reverence and prayer and proceeded to induct him.

 

An offertory procession of bread and wine was held and Father Francis gave communion. The choir sang wonderful church hymns in Xhosa, Sotho and in English. Learners sang along in the most angelic voices. We are truly blessed to have had the opportunity to be part of such a significant ceremony.

 EDUCATIONAL TOURS

 FET Geography Tour

It was suggested by the FET HOD and Geography teacher, Mrs S Letuka, that it would be a worthwhilegeo tour and educational experience to have a Geography tour every 3 years for the Grade 10 – 12 Geography learners.

Mpumalanga was eventually the chosen destination for the 2014 Geography Tour. Staff and learners arrived promptly at 04h00 on 27 April to start the long journey. Our first stop was the ‘Howick Falls’ at 08:00 where we were greeted with this beautiful sight on a crisp morning in the Midlands. Shortly thereafter, we headed toward the Nelson Mandela Capture Site just outside of Howick. Quite a poignant moment as it was exactly 20 years ago that the first democratic elections were held. After viewing the cleverly crafted steel columns and browsing through the museum, we continued our journey. After a few hours of travelling – staff were starting to hear, “Are we nearly there yet?” The response, “No, and don’t ask that again for another 6 hours!” did serve to silence a few.

We eventually arrived in the picturesque town of Barberton at 18h30 that evening. After unpacking, we were treated to a hearty supper from our friendly hosts at Barberton Hotelskool.

The following morning we headed off to the Barberton Museum where the learners were told aboutgeo tour 1 the geological history of the area and were each given a ‘greenstone’. We then did the Heritage Walk, which included the Victorian Museum Houses, the blockhouse and the façade of the first Stock Exchange in the Transvaal.

Our visit to Sudwala Caves and Dinosaur Park that afternoon sadly, had to be postponed, due to transport problems. This, however, did not dampen the learner’s spirits. The next morning required an early start as we headed off to Malelane Gate for a morning in the Kruger National Park. Plenty of impala and kudu were spotted amongst other antelope such as eland, duiker and waterbuck. Guinea-fowl, a number of bird species, warthog, giraffe and buffalo were also spotted. At one stage, an elephant cow was seen next to the road and as the first bus moved on and rounded the corner, it unfortunately upset the elephant bull that was crossing the road. He turned and made a mock charge toward the bus and then decided to get slightly angrier – after some very tense minutes (that felt like an eternity), the bus driver saw an opportunity to get past him. Needless to say, this was certainly the story of the day as the terrifying moments were recounted over and over again. Later in the morning, we heard that there was a pride of lion on the Renosterkop road. We headed off onto the gravel road, but due to the high rainfall in the area, there was quite a deep drift that was only accessible by 4x4 vehicles and our buses had to turn around thus missing this exciting sighting.

After exiting at Numbi Gate, we made our way to Graskop. The days that followed included tours of the Panoramic Route, which included God’s Window, Blyde River Canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and Mac Mac Falls and Pools.

Blyde River Canyon and Bourke’s Luck Potholes took our breath away – the beauty and magnificence of this area is indescribable. Some learner’s conquered their fear of heights temporarily to see the beauty of this area for themselves.

The last day was scheduled for the visit to Sudwala Caves. The learners were taken on a fascinating tour delivered by a most charismatic tour guide. In the amphitheatre (where Miriam Makeba and the Drakensberg Boys Choir have previously performed), our tour guide asked the learners to perform a musical item so as to display the acoustics in the caves. They all stepped onto the stage and performed a beautiful rendition of a gospel song, which delivered an applause from a number of other tour groups in the caves.

It was then time to head home – leaving the majestic Mpumalanga Mountains and scenery, to head for the hills and mountains of KZN and finally, our own beautiful province.

Thanks are extended to our staff that accompanied us, Mrs S. Letuka, Mr W. Muravu and Mr N. Ndebele as well as our drivers for their patience and good grace throughout the tour. Lastly, a special thank you is extended to the FET Geography learners for their exemplary behaviour and good spirit throughout as well as the parents and guardians who made this tour possible for their children.

We look forward to the 2017 Geography Tour!

 Grade 5 Tour to Durban

On Monday, 7 April 2014, at the crack of dawn – the Grade 5’s gathered at the school with much grade5Tour14excitement and anticipation as they were about to depart on their annual tour to Durban.

The first port of call was ‘The Space Centre’ in Port Edward where much was learned about the stars, constellations and planets. Shortly thereafter, we headed off to the local coffee plantations. We were guided through the processes involved in producing coffee and also got the opportunity to enjoy a cup of locally brewed coffee.

That afternoon we departed for the harbour to experience a boat cruise through the harbour. After a long day, everyone settled in at our accommodation venue, the Fig Tree, to enjoy a hearty supper and an evening swim.

The following day, 8 April 2014, a visit to the Natural History Museum was on the cards which was most informative and interesting. The next stop was the Sugar Terminal – we were taken through the procedures and techniques used to produce sugar and also got the opportunity to step inside one of the silos.

We then stopped for lunch at the Umgeni Bird Park. After lunch, we were treated to a bird show. Kemiso was one of the learners chosen to feed a little bird from the guide’s hand. A walk through the park was fascinating as the learners got see a wide and colourful variety of birds.

On 9 April 2014, we were scheduled to spend the day at Ushaka Marine World. An interesting tour was given with insight into the marine world and concluded with a very entertaining dolphin show. After a Wimpy lunch, learners and teachers headed off to ‘Wet ‘n Wild’ for an afternoon of swimming and an opportunity to show their daring sides by attempting some of the water-slides.

On the final leg of the tour, 10 April 2014, the penultimate stop was the Natal Sharks Board. We got to learn some fascinating facts about these magnificent creatures, “The Lungs of the Sea.”, as well as witnessing a shark dissection.

The last stop, before the homeward stretch, was Pure Venom – the Snake and Reptile Park. We were treated to a tour showing a wide variety of snakes and reptiles, as well as being given the opportunity to hold a snake, dispelling some preconceived ideas that snakes are ‘slimy’ creatures.

Our learners are commended on their excellent behaviour. Special thanks go to Ms Cilliers for the planning of the tour, Mr Conradie, Mr Suddes, Ms Cilliers and Ms la Marque for accompanying the Grade 5’s and King’s Transport for the safe journey to and from Durban.

Grade 7 Tour

The St Monica's Diocesan School Grade 7 Learners went on tour to T.O. Strand in Port Edward from the 17th to 19th grade 7 tourOctober.

When we arrived at T.O. Strand it was raining heavily, but being an hour early we went for a walk along the beach where the learners took the opportunity to become soaking wet.

The learners were taught three rules before the programme commenced. They were: respect, responsibility and consideration. Once we were settled in we started the activities. Although the rain interfered with the programme on the first day, it cleared up by the end of the weekend and we managed to get everything done on time. The activities included team building activities, zip-lining, archery, swimming, kayaking and raft building.

All the learners behaved impeccably, participating in all the activities and cooperating with their groups. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We were sad to leave and would have liked to have stayed a little longer.

Over all it was a very successful trip with few incidents which was enjoyed by all.
