Investiture Of 2019/2020 Prefects
A ceremony on the morning of 8th October saw the investiture of the school’s new corps of prefects, in the school hall.
In a new twist, a ceremony took place in the quad, with torches, symbolic of the school motto, being lit from a common flame and placed into holders lining the walk-ways.
Then it was back to the hall, where Mrs. Davies started proceedings, by inviting Pastor Jimmy Venter to address the assemblage and give a benediction on the incoming members of the SLRC.
Mrs. Davies proceeded to invite the Principal, Mr. Minnie, to address the school, which he did and asked the outgoing Deputy Head Girl, Thea Smuts and Deputy Head Boy Kyle Siebert to read out the Prefect’s Codes Of Honour and of Conduct, for the new team.
Following this, the new prefects, with their parent/ guardians came onto the stage, where they were individually congratulated by Mr. Minnie.
Just a few of the photos from this part of the ceremony are posted here, due to space constraints, but all of the images, and all of the images of the torch-lighting ceremony are available online, here; http://www.365.acdsee.com/folders_public.php?profileid=1612960&folderid=2153494 A word of warning, though, the album will only be open for a while, so view them and, if you would like a copy of the image or images, leave a comment in the link below.
Mrs. Davies proceeded to announce the Deputy Head girl- and boy and then, the Head Boy and Girl, who were invested by Mr. Minnie.
These were; L – R, Alida van Rensburg, Head Girl Lethabo Moloto, Head Boy Tinashe Manyonga and Hansie Swanepoel,
The symbolic handing over of the torches and the school banner to the incumbents was then performed, followed by valedictory speeches by the outgoing Head Girl, Munadia Islam and Head Boy Erik Limbach
The event was closed with the singing of the school anthem
