A warm welcome to all staff, girls and community members after a well-deserved half-term break. This break gave me the opportunity to reflect on the importance of embracing traditions and their significance for both the present and the future. One such tradition that holds a special place in our school's heritage was my installation. The feedback from girls, staff and parents on the importance and impact of traditions in our school has been truly enlightening. Being part of the history of the school means embracing the values, customs and ethos that have shaped our community over the years.

The second half of our Easter term began with a time-honoured tradition that dates back to the 1930s when the house system was introduced - house days. On Leap Year Day, we celebrated our first house day dedicated to Karney House. The girls organised a successful cake sale, with proceeds benefiting charity while enjoying music and cupcakes during the second break. It was refreshing to see a flurry of green T-shirts and frog paraphernalia throughout the day. Reviving traditions like these is meaningful as they help us cultivate a stronger sense of identity, camaraderie and belonging.

I am delighted to report that the construction of the new building, Khanyisa, is progressing well and we are on track to move in at the start of Term II. This beautiful space will feature four quads, two of which will house a self-eSTEAM hall, an examination hall for matric prelims and finals and Maths classrooms. Khanyisa will certainly provide the Senior School with a state-of-the-art facility for learning and growth.

As we continue to uphold our traditions and embrace new beginnings, I am confident that we will build a stronger, more connected community.
