Celebrating the end of the year is always a treat at Windsor. The Grade Two classes headed off to Windsor as early as we could this morning to maximize our short school day with the opportunity to play, play, PLAY!
Being let loose to enjoy all the equipment is the ultimate FUN when you are in Grade 2. Driving around the race tracks and refueling our bikes and ensuring the tyres are pumped up and ready to race is VERY important. AND did the boys and girls whizz around the track? OF COURSE!!
Chill time with our besties before we head off to the next Grade.
It really was simply fun, fun, FUN! Slides, swings, bike races, picnics and the feeling that we weren’t locked up for the day… unless we chose to be in the imaginary jail!
No need to phone home because the Grade 2 teachers were on patrol. Not that we were needed because everyone found a corner to have the most amazing uninterrupted FUN! Windsor we are so glad you could host us today!
We are very pleased to announce that Herbert Hurd was awarded third place in the iSchool Press Team competition at the Think Ahead Excellence in Education Awards in Johannesburg. The video that won the award was created by Dr Brand as part of our anti-bullying initiative. Many of our pupils feature in the video that focuses on our key concepts of 'I am Beautiful, I am Worthy, I am Smart, I am Priceless'. Please have a look at our video by following the link below. An anti-bullying video, featuring our staff, was also made for the pupils and this too can be viewed below.
One knows when an evening is a success when countless parents say afterwards, “Time just flew!” And the reason time went by so quickly is that we were entertained at intervals by our talented pupils who have worked hard to produce music of a high standard, and were thus rewarded with the honour of playing for the audience at our prestigious concert.
Without any introduction, the Senior Choir appeared up front in small groups, each adding to the volume of beautiful sound as they propounded in song the ways in which we can have “A Better World”. The stunning “Panis Angelicus” followed, with the entire choir joining Caitlyn Blouw and Jordan le Roux who sang the first verse on their own. The lively performance of The Kaapse Klopse Keurspel, which, incidentally, will also be sung at the “Sing in Harmonie” Kyknet competition, was much enjoyed by all, as evidenced by the smiling faces of participants and audience alike.
The presentation of awards was lavishly interspersed with entertain...
Herbert Hurd held its annual Sports Awards ceremony on Tuesday, 08 November at the Martin Emmerick hall. The guest of honour was Ignatius Malgraff, the phenomenal and current striker in the Mens' Springbok hockey team.
A record number of 36 pupils received provincial recognition this year.
The Grade 6's spent 2 interesting days completing a scavenger hunt & exploring the reptile area & aquarium at Bayworld. Room 14 & 17 went on Tuesday, 1 November & Room 15 & 16 went on Wednesday, 2 November. The scavenger hunt required groups to really think about the clues they were reading to find their answers around the museum. This gave groups the opportunity to look at different areas in the museum & learn about interesting facts. The exploration of the reptile area & aquarium was very exciting as some pupils got kisses from the seals during the seal show & those brave enough got to touch & hold a snake!! Snapping crocodiles & slow-moving tortoise's made for some more great entertainment. A wonderful day was had by all!
