Matric Farewell

Boitumelo Mataboge was partnered by Charmaine Rachele – Matric 2018. Roman Manoa is also in the frame
Nicolas Pieterse and his partner, Daniella,toast the end of 13 years of school.
This beautiful photograph was taken by Gustav Collins of The Adshop. He was our official photographer (unpaid nogal!) and we look forward to a selection of similar beautifully composed pictures when the processing is over. L to R: Shannon and Simoné, Michael and Jade, Hansie and Megan, Jordan and Dylan, Rebecca and Marco, Roman, Daniella and Nicolas.

Head Girl, San-Marie Stegmann, looking lovely in maroon, which seemed to be the most popular colour among the girls.

They say that a Matric Farewell is all about the dress, and I believe our evening was no different from any others. The girls looked magnificent and the boys were dashing.

This delightful group of young people shows how it feels to get to the end of the 13 year long haul. They have been a very cohesive group and most agree, a pleasure to teach. We will miss you, Guys.

Congratulations, Mrs McBride, on putting together such a lovely evening. Thank you, Mrs Raubenheimer for all your help. Leeuwenhof was an inspired choice for a venue. It is absolutely beautiful, and I believe the staff could not do enough to help with the preparations on the day.

Their last day at school saw little work being done and a trip down memory lane. Mrs McBride got them to the same spot where group photos had been taken since Grade 4, and even got them to sit in the same positions. Michael’s bunny ears had also become compulsory after so many years, he is not resisting the onset of early adulthood!

In these first picture we see four who made it all the way through sitting with Miss Lavery. In the Grade 7 picture they are joined by Jordan Hansen and Nicolas Pieterse and their teacher is Mrs Steyn. In the picture below, the final group sits with Form Teacher, Mrs McBride.
