Yesterday, the ZWHS June examination officially commenced. We wish our learners all the best with their exams. Here are some pictures of our learners in their exam venues.

Last week Wednesday, we had the privilege of having the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra at our school as part of their school concert performance. We would like to thank the CPO for exposing our learners to orchestral music our learners thoroughly enjoyed the concert. Also, a special shout out to Mr Nyishimani for organising the event at our school.

Last week at ZWHS we shared our hearts by donating blood. We thank all the participants for being selfless and helping to save lives. Also, a special shout out to Ms Temba and her team for organising and facilitating the whole event.

ALERT: BLOOD DONATION.

Please come and donate blood tomorrow at our school.

In our Principal’s birthday week, we keep winning. Our U/19 soccer boys won BOTH of their games at today’s soccer tournament at Wynberg Boys High School. Against Reddam House they won 1-0, and against Westerford they won 6-0. Congratulations Coach Joshua and Coach Jelemsi!
We wish our esteemed leader Ms. Otto a fabulous birthday. May this year be prosperous.

Today we acknowledged and celebrated all our grade 10 to 12 learners who achieved excellent marks in term 1 at our Awards Ceremony. We want to congratulate every learner who received recognition for their excellent performance and encourage those who did not receive an award today to work extra harder in term 2.

ROCKING THE FUTURE

During the course of this week our matric learners were given a fantastic opportunity to ask questions from the visiting college and university representatives. They received tips on application procedures, bursaries, future studies and careers. Thank you to the Rocking the Future team for helping our learners navigate through their career choices.

Our top grade 9 to 12 English learners participated in the English Olympiad. A language and literature competition, that draws over 8000 entries annually across South Africa. A special shout out to all the learners who participated in the competition. Also, a big thank you to Ms Walker (head of the English department) and her team for exposing our learners to this.

Thank you to all the parents who donated stationary towards our service pillar stationary drive. The stationary was handed over to Resorting Hope by our head of service Priyanka Naidoo and her team, and Ms Manyadu the teacher in charge of the Service Pillar at our school.

These are the memories we never want to forget. Last week our matrics had their "anything but a bag day" and they really got creative and surprised us all with their innovative thinking. We also enjoyed our fun-filled inter-house athletics which brought about the most shocking results! Well done to all our athletes who participated last week and those who will be representing the school at interschool athletics next week. A massive congratulations to Morgen House, our under dogs turned top dogs.

Apart from welcoming back our staff on the 17th of January 2022, we also spent the last two days orientating our new Grade 8 learners as to who we are as an institution, what we stand for and how we do business.

Why choose a high school in pursuit of excellence?

High school is a time for teenagers to learn valuable skills for life from professionals (their teachers) and from their peers. Valuable high school days prepare our children for tertiary education and for the world of work. The days at high school are filled with informational activities, engagement with content, assessments that challenge learners, sport and cultural activities that develop the various aspects of an individual and the opportunity to build positive relationships. There are many reasons a high school education is important, but most of all it is a means to achieve long-term goals and nurture a good work ethic, a sense of accomplishment and an opportunity to experience good ol’ hard work.

According to Matthew Lynch, an American Education Theorist, the five attributes of a successful school are:

1. Leadership: Learners perform better when the Principal, the Senior Management Team and the School Governing Body provide strong leadership.

2. High Expectations: The second element is having high expectations of learners as well as teachers. High expectations of learners have repeatedly been shown to have a positive impact on performance. Teachers who are expected to teach at high levels of effectiveness can reach the level of expectations.
