Hi All Rustybugs,
Two Rustybugs, Helen Timoney (Winter) and myself are part of a group which is helping Grade 3 and 4 children at a Homework Club in Delft, Cape Town, concentrating on English literacy. This year we suddenly have 11 Grade 3s and 14 Grade 4s. Is there anyone who has a Monday afternoon available and would like to join us? Send Helen or me a message if you are interested.
My aunt showed me these great old recipe books from Rustenburg. Anyone perhaps have an old copy they no longer want to keep/selling?? Would be nice to have one :)

Celebrating Women's Day

28/07/2021

We extend our condolences to the family of Mr Chris Murison who passed away this past week. Mr Murison taught Mathematics at Rustenburg after his retirement as Headmaster of Rondebosch Boys' High School in 1997.

Mr Murison was asked to help out with teaching Mathematics at the school for six months. He agreed and ended up staying for 15 years. Mr Murison was a teacher at heart who passed on his own love of knowledge and especially of Mathematics to his students.
Ms Bridget Cameron, former Head of Mathematics writes in the 2013 school magazine:

“A favourite portrait of his is of the back of a girl’s head. His teaching ambition was to capture her attention and get her to turn around. He loves problems, crossword puzzles, detective stories and TS Eliot’s poetry. He thrills at seeing a new angle to a piece of Mathematics. Young teachers who visit his classes find his natural approach to the subject somehow opens doors for those he teaches. They have sat mesmerised by his engaging manner. He can always be distracted to discuss Mathematics that is outside the realm of the syllabus, but interesting.”

Mr Murison was also the founder of the 12 Club for Grade 12 girls who took turns to present topics of their own interest to the other members. He also prepared learners who took part in the various Mathematics Olympiads and competitions and was a senior examiner for Matric Mathematics for many years.

For those who knew him at RGHS, Mr Murison will be fondly remembered as the inspiration behind Wednesday staffroom teas, always wearing his Rondebosch Old Boys’ tie with pride on a Friday and his Tweetie or cartoon ties on a Thursday.

Ms Jackie Weston, who has worked at Rustenburg for many years, added the following:

“Chris was a champion when it came to his interest in sport and his remarkable memory for the details of any cricket or rugby game. He was the champion behind the staffroom crosswords – something in which a number of the staff competed. Who could forget his talent for making award-winning fudge. It was legendary and, if you were super lucky then on the occasion of your birthday you might be presented with a jar of it all for yourself.
A wonderful man who was a deep thinker, considerate, compassionate and dependable to the last.”

28/07/2021

Sincerest condolences to the Murison family and friends on the recent passing of Mr Chris Murison. Mr Murison was a well loved and respected maths teacher at RGHS for 15 years after he retired as Headmaster of Rondebosch Boys High School (1986 - 1997)

Where does one begin to describe a legend? Does one start with a Tweety-bird tie or a briefcase adorned with stickers? Does one describe the simple retort of “Be like Nike. Just do it.” When crowds of girls struggled with sums? The reality is that there are no words to sum up a legend; they just are.
When I heard of the passing of Mr Murison, the world stood still for a moment. It seemed impossible. There are no words to describe the hole he leaves in the teaching profession, despite not actively being involved in teaching any longer. Thankfully, his legacy lives on in many teachers that he has inspired, me being one of them. He made teaching look easy and he made learning easier. He was a natural in the classroom and made knowledge seem so simple that everyone wanted to acquire even a slice of it. He dealt with the teenage girl spirit so well, despite years of being around the boys just up the road. It truly seemed like there was nothing he couldn’t do. And the best part? He had not one bit of arrogance around him, despite his genius mind. He was compassionate and simply put, a good human. I know that this spirit will live on and hopefully from it, many more legends will be born.
