Van der Bilt student Ryan Selvaggio was here in May to July 2013. Ryan did a lot of work to establish a house system at the School. The students and staff were consulted and provide input and made choices.
Last week the house colours were officially launched. These are some pictures of the launch.
2014 Bag hand-out:
Each year Biffy tries to hand out bags to say well done to the students who have not dropped out of the system and stayed all the way to Grade 12. The bags are filled with a few goodies (depending what Biffy can get her hands on). This year the students got t-shirts, water bottles, pens, soap and other odds. This was largely due to donations from Virgin Active, Wynberg Rotaractors and other sponsors. Thank you sponsors.
This task is getting harder and harder due to the increased number of Grade 12 students each year. Although the task gets harder, this is good news as more and more students are staying the distance. When this project was started it was a case of looking for 60 or 70 bags. This year it was a case of having to find 126 bags and contents. I believe that next year it will be over 200. This is truly good news to see more and more students not dropping out of the system and making it all the way to Grade 12.
When speaking to the students of Grade 12 they made me a promise to have a 100% pass rate. Good luck Grade 12s. Make us proud and live up to that promise. Put your heads down for the last few months and do your best.
