Mandela Day

The Junior Primary invited all the support staff to a tea on Mandela Day. It was a wonderful opportunity for the girls to honour and show appreciation for those who do so much for them. We all enjoyed the singing and musical presentations.

Senior Primary girls and teachers unite to provide meals of hope

In a heartwarming display of compassion and unity, the Senior Primary girls and their teachers came together on Mandela Day to make a difference in the lives of less fortunate patients across Johannesburg who receive support from the Baragwanath Hospital Care Comforts Committee (BHCC). BHCC is a remarkable organisation that reaches out to disadvantaged individuals in state hospitals and clinics, ensuring they receive essential support and meals to aid their recovery. Led by the inspiring duo of Robyn Richmond and Koo Montgomery, this act of service truly exemplified the spirit of Madiba, with every girl contributing her time and effort to make her 67 minutes count.

The significance of the number 67 stems from Nelson Mandela’s 67 years of dedicated service to humanity. In honour of his legacy, Mandela Day encourages individuals to spend 67 minutes of their time engaging in acts of kindness and service. The Senior Primary girls embraced this call, understanding that their contributions, no matter how small, could make a tangible difference.

Nelson Mandela believed in the power of education and service to transform lives and build a better society. The initiative taken by the Senior Primary girls and their teachers not only supported the patients at BHCC it also demonstrated the values that Mandela championed throughout his life.

The music picnic outside The Edge was a perfect end to Mandela Day. The Senior Primary choir, marimba bands, chamber choir and orchestra performed for the Senior School and Senior Primary, a lovely celebration for our broader community!
