The All Africa Student Convention (AASC) is an annual event that is held over a period of one week. High school learners from across Africa (and even Scandinavia) come together to compete in events in a variety of platforms : Academic, art, sport, music, speech & drama and dance.
AASC can best be described as a mini Olympics for learners in schools using the ACE system as well as other Christian schools. Plus minus 2000 students attend-ed the AASC.
Learners who excel in their events are no-minated to attend the International Student Convention, which is held in the USA once a year. The ISC tour is a life-changing ex-perience and an awesome opportunity for learners.

As schools opened on January 17, 2018 in the Northern Cape, authori-ties including the MEC of Education Pauline Williams accompanied by her head of department Tshepo Pharasi, said that educators and learners should not waste time.
This statement comes in the wake of an upward trend of matric results obtained in the district.
In her candid address to the community, Ms Williams said that the department is mo-nitoring the state of schools in the region, as well as acclimatising with the community. “We are indeed pleased by the upward ma-tric results trend in the John Taolo Gaetse-we region. It goes without saying that the district director and his team are doing a sterling job to ensure that there is some rising consistency in the pass rate.
“We applaud the multifaceted approach by different stakeholders to ensure that our score sheet in terms of results in the district
remains improving,” she said.
Not only did the delegation look at the ac-ademic results, but they were also con-cerned about the state of some schools where the infrastructure looked very old and seemed forgotten by the relevant au-thorities.
Responding to the media over some schools which were seemingly a threat in terms of their state of disrepair, Ms Williams was bold enough to state that the monitor-ing and evaluation being undertaken were precisely targeting such schools in the re-gion and the province at large.
She said that Bosele Middle School is one such good example that had been prioriti-sed because of its bad state. The paint of the school is peeling off and the building itself is telling another story with the rotten roofing asking whether or not the depart-ment is seeing its advanced age. The resi-dent chief also raised the befitting concern about the school.

Die skool en veral die spelers wil graag baie dankie sê aan Cecile Murray en Mortan Coetzee wat hulle afgerig het. Laerskool Kathu se Turke rugbyspan het vir die afrigters toernooihemde geborg. Dit was 'n lekker verrassing.
