Term 2 2016
Tuesday, 3 May, 2016
After a wonderful holiday, I hope everyone has come back to school refreshed and focused on the busy term ahead.
During the holidays I was able to watch our 1st Team Rugby play in the Krugersdorp Rugby Festival and both the Boy’s and Girl’s 1st Team Hockey play in the St Dunstan’s Hockey Festival. Both festivals were in Johannesburg. I was very pleased with the results and both the staff and pupils were great ambassadors for our school. The results have been posted on the website and our Facebook page.
The Staff attended a two day seminar during the holidays at school. Guest speakers were invited to discuss with us Motivation Skills, Teaching Methods, Tutoring Techniques, Study Skills and different methods of IT used in the classroom. It was very informative and well received by the staff
I would also like to welcome Mr. Tapererwa, our new Art teacher to Hillcrest. He comes with much experience and exposure of teaching skills from outside our borders. I know everyone will join me in wishing him all the very best in his new post.
Ahead of us lies another exciting and action-packed Winter Term, with a huge range of events and activities to look forward to. Please check our School Calendar for the forth coming events and I hope the Parents and friends of Hillcrest College will come and support us.
I wish all Staff, Pupils and Parents all the best for the term ahead and I look forward to sharing the many events and challenges that lie ahead of us.
