Good afternoon Wittebome
We have redrafted our timetable to accommodate each grade twice a week now. Please bear in mind that our matriculants will also be at school, writing their final NSC exams, so this is an extremely tight situation and all our classrooms will be used every day.
It is important that you support us by reinforcing with your children the need for social distancing and regular sanitizing. Please impress upon them the absolute necessity of wearing their masks and adhering to a safe distance at all times.
Thank you once again for your support during these difficult times.
The week will now be structured as follows:

Good evening Wittebome
Today we were saddened to hear of the passing of our former headmaster, JJ Africa, who served as Wittebome principal from June 1970 to March 1980. Mr Africa served the school during turbulent political times. He was our principal on June 16th 1976, which we commemorate with Youth Day celebrations today. Thank you Mr Africa, for your service to our youth. We will remember you fondly.


For the last interview of the show, Qaqamba will be chatting to 14-year-old Lea Lukoji who has been making finger puppets that she shares with other young people to make them happy during the lockdown.

Lea says that as part of her journey of self-empowerment, she decided to help empower other youth.
