Message from our Principal D ear Bryanstonians As another year draws to an end, I would like to take a minute to reflect on what 2017 brought to Bryanston High. We have enjoyed many highlights this year, and although I may leave out one or two, the most outstanding events of the year were our spectacular musical production which set new standards; our rugby boys winning the Clover Series and our Cheerleaders coming 1st and 3rd nationally. Our True Blue Day saw many new traditions created and new activities which means 2018 True Blue Day will be even more enjoyable. Academically it was good to see that there were fewer failures than ever before at the end of the year. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those who achieved outstanding results in their final exams. Please may I ask parents check the report carefully because it contains vital information on the 2018 school year. Some of the things to look forward to next year is our 50th year celebration where we will also host the Gauteng/Kwza-Zulu Natal festival. We have also included Netball in this event so it will be a very special weekend. There are also lots of other events planned for the weekend, such as the Alumni Assembly, a picnic for all Bryanstonians and there will be a special ball for all the old boys and girls. There will also be a commemorative 50th tie available that every old Bryanstonian and every learner can wear during the winter season. Admissions this year was quite a challenge and we have the largest intake to Grade 8 that we have had for years. Unfortunately as some of you might be aware, MEC Lesufi intends to cut teaching posts to the high schools and we could possibly lose 4 posts which will put a heavy strain on our finances. This time of the year it is sad to say goodbye to Mrs Barbara Fourie who is becoming a Home Executive and to Ms van Rooyen who is moving to Ireland. I would like to personally thank them for their dedication and hard work over their years at Bryanston High School. We look forward to our Matric results which will be available on 5th January and we hope that all the hard work of our Matrics will be reflected in our results. May I wish every Bryanstonian a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope you enjoy the holidays and return safely to Bryanston High in the New Year. J SKELTON Principal Share your news with us.
