D Virtue. Fidelity. Justice. ear Bryanstonians Twenty so as to enable them to go on a future tour. A big ‘thank you’ to Mrs Fulcher and Miss Barkay who were the tour leaders. On the sporting front, our Netball girls took part in the St Stithian’s “Fast Five Netball Tournament” for the first time and we want to congratulate them on their performances. Our First Cricket team had a successful season which culminated in a great triumph in their final game when they beat Helpmekaar by eighteen runs. This is a fantastic achievement. Our AGM was held on 14th October and letters were sent out outlining the fee structure for next year. Once again, I would like to thank those parents who took the time to attend our AGM. Bryanston High School is very involved in charity work and, especially at this time of the year, we would like to appeal to our parent community to support us in assisting our various charities. A reminder to our new Grade 8 parents of the information evening on 10th November at 18h00 in the hall. Sadly, we learnt about one of our ex-pupils who was seriously injured in a motor bike accident. Miguel da Silva Ferreira, is still in ICU and the whole Bryanston High family is praying for his recovery. Our thoughts are with his family at this time! Rosina, who helped Sue in the tuckshop sadly passed away after a long illness and our condolences go to her family! Our Matrics started their exams last week and the rest of the school will begin their exams this coming Monday. We appeal to all parents to ensure that supervised studying takes place and to encourage your children to put in the necessary hours to achieve maximum marks. A reminder to parents that we would like all learners off the property after the exams so that they can go home and prepare for the next day’s exams. We do not want learners sitting idly outside the school. A letter detailing the instructions for the exams and the end of the year arrangements has been emailed to parents. Please make sure that your child is aware of this letter and follows the instructions accordingly. We would also like to remind parents that lateness will not be tolerated and in cases of your child coming late, this will be declared an irregularity. We had a successful valedictory service where Nikki Bush, Head Girl of Bryanston High in 1984, gave a motivational speech to our Matrics on why tertiary education is of utmost the importance. The event was also attended by governing body members and other invited guests. We want to thank all the Matrics who, at the end of the valedictory service, donated their school shoes to less privileged children. A big welcome back to our Academic Achievers who returned from their tour to the USA. The learners reported that they learnt a lot and some have created their own opportunities for future prospects. This Academic Achievers’ tour has certainly impacted on the school and on many of our learners who are now aiming to make the Top Mr J Skelton Principal
