D Our Teachers affect eternity. ear Bryanstonians Congratulations to our grade 8s who went on a successful grade 8 camp this weekend. We hope that the lessons learnt will be useful to them in coping with their high school years. Thank you Mr Vorster, Mrs Lobban and Mr Govender for organising this camp. Thank you to the register teachers who also attended this camp. We would like to wish our boys and girls hockey teams well as they travel down to Natal to attend the prestigious Kearsney Hockey Festival. Thanks to the teachers who are giving up their holiday time to accompany these tours. We are looking forward to our musical, ‘Disco Inferno’ which will take place next term. The staff and cast have worked hard to ensure this will be an enjoyable experience for all. On Friday, reports will be handed to learners. Please make sure that you receive these reports from your child. Academic Council will take place early next term and it is of vital importance that you go through your child’s report. You may be called to attend the Academic Council sessions with your son or daughter. These sessions are very important and cannot be missed. Also, please note that school will close at 10h45 am on Friday. Our summer sports season has now come to an end and we have certainly had some mixed results. Our boys and girls tennis did really well and tennis is a growing sport at Bryanston High School. Our cricketers had a superb season and our First XI Team boast a winning ratio of 75%. The under 14 A cricket team showed a lot of talent, sadly some of their matches were rained out. Unfortunately our swimming season was not that successful but we are putting a process in place to see how we can improve our swimming performances. Our winter season sports programme began on Saturday with a Derby Day against Potchefstroom Boys High. Again, we urge parents to come to matches, support your child and join our supporters club. As mentioned before, we offer a variety of winter sports programmes. We would like every child to participate in one of these activities each term. We are also hosting quite a few Derby Days next term and we hope to see our Supporters Club at all of these events. If you are going on holiday travel safely! School re-opens on 5th April 2016. J SKELTON Principal

True Blue Community Bryanston High School is a family. It is this spirit that makes the school so special. Part of being a family is caring for others. Caring is one of the things that Bryanstonians do best. Learners, parents and staff are always getting involved in some community service activities. Term 1 of 2016 has been marked with various fund-raising and social responsibility events, these are just a few pictures from some of these events. The school celebrated Leap Year 2016 with a ‘Jeans for Genes’ civvies day fund-raiser in aid of Rare Diseases South Africa. Thank you to all of our learners who participated, you helped us to donate over R9 000.00 for this amazing cause. You showed us once again that the Blue Flame really burns brightly in each of your hearts. On Saturday the 12th of March the members of the Bryanston High School Interact Committee participated in a ‘River Rehab’ (a river clean up). These learners gave up time on their weekend to go out and clean up their community instead of staying at home and watching TV or relaxing on the couch for the day. What awesome ‘True Blue’ spirit!

A special congratulations to Thobani Madlala for making it to the Gauteng Finals and placing 5th in his 100m race. O rienteering Bryanston High School joined the orienteering schools league for the first time in 2014. Since then the sport has grown, not only in the number of our learners who participate each year but also in strength as Team Bryanston continues to achieve better results and becomes more and more competitive. Most learners who start at Bryanston High School have never had any experience with orienteering as an extra mural, never mind had to compete against other schools. Orienteering challenges learners to combine thinking skills and athletic ability. Congrats to our orienteers on a strong finish on a challenging course in the League Finals held on Monday the 7th of March at Golden Harvest. Arminita -Lee Swann finished 2nd in the Junior Girls, Ian Edwards 5th and Gareth Edwards 12th in the Senior Boys League. The results of each race are added up throughout the season. The final overall results for the Orienteering Schools League season are: Ian Edwards 5th in the Senior Boys League, Gareth Edwards 7th in the Senior Boys League and Arminita-Lee Swann 8th in the Junior Girls League. Well done! J udo Congratulations Koketso Ramatla for receiving National Colours for Judo .

B ryanston Buzz The first of our Bryanston Buzz nights was held on February 25th in the school hall for our Grade 8 parents. Bryanston Buzz nights are new to the Bryanston High School calendar. They have been added by the new Grade 8 Controllers and are aimed at including our (first time) high school parents into the school, beyond the classroom and sports field. Each event has been specifically designed to involve you, as parents, more in the lives of your child at high school in a fun or effective way. The first event kicked off with a presentation on discipline with Educational Psychologist, Mr Ripley-Evans. Much discussion was had after the presentation as many of our parents had questions and thoughts they needed answering or wanted to share with their fellow grade 8 parents and Mr Ripley-Evans. We encourage our grade 8 parents to attend the Bryanston Buzz events throughout the year to benefit from the activities and guest speakers we have organised and not miss out on valuable opportunities to connect with the other parents who will be on this journey with you for the next 5 years.
