Ontheffing 2017

Nog ‘n mylpaal in die geskiedenis van Hoërskool Olifantshoek Akademie vir CVO – Slegs EEN Groentjie (Graad 8): Rencea Spengler.

Maar sy was ‘n sterk baba en kon die “punch” vat vir 2 weke. Deur die molasse, chillisous, dikmelk, rou eiers en noem dit op, het sy anderkant uitgestap met die aangrypendste monoloog op die verhoog. Hier en daar is daar glad ‘n traan gepik. (Dit kan gedoen word).

 

Vrugtefees

Hoërskool Olifantshoek Akademie vir CVO het ook Vrugtefees gehou. Die groen- en geelspanne het gewedywer met stroopappels, druiwekorrels wat met die neus gerol is, appels wat van nek tot nek aangegee is en rug teen rug moes twee mekaar voer met piesangs en waatlemoen. Laasgenoemde vrugte het orals beland, behalwe in die mond. Dit was groot sports!

Nog ‘n jaar – nog ‘n mylpaal. Hoërskool Olifantshoek, Akademie vir CVO is baie trots op ons Gr 12’s van 2016.

Hierdie kandidate het ongelooflik presteer. In vyf van hulle vakke het hulle die nasionale gemiddeld van die IEB oortref.

Baie baie geluk. Julle maak ons trots!

Hierdie  grondslagfase onderwysers het op Woensdag 11 Januarie 2017 by Laerskool Kathu ingeklok, volgens die tradisie: Jacky van der Merwe, Elouise Badenhorst, Elke Strauss en Helousie Gericke (wat boonop verjaar het ook).

Well done Kuruman Christian Academy, once again we have risen to the challenge and for the second year in a row the school was invited to the prestigious annual Matric Awards, which was held in Kimberley, on the 5th of January 2017, where we received the award for the Second Best Academic School in the John Taolo Gaetsewe District. Deirdre Nieuwoudt (Executive Principal), stated, that she is very proud to be a part of such a dynamic learning environment, and would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mrs Marina Landman and her exceptional team of FET teachers as well as the grade 12 learners for their hard work, dedication and long hours, without them this would not have been possible.

It is with great gratitude that we thank God for the opportunity to be able to work with learners from many diverse cultures, may He bless and guide us as we go fro strength to strength.

Thusego is one of the middle schools found in the deep rural areas of Tsineng village but its image leaves a lot to be desired.

The Northern Cape NGO coalition in Kuruman had its field worker Mr Tebogo Moitsi who also works for Actionaid in that area, astounded. “We are working with schools around the district of John Taolo Gaetsewe, and Thusego Middle School is one of the schools that is in our programme.

The school has been running for a year now without water, toilets and furniture. The learners have been attending lessons sitting on the floor for the whole year expecting that the situation will change very soon. But to this date nothing has changed and the situation shows there is no possible hope in sight”.

Mr Moitsi said that examination papers lie idle on the floor in boxes. Classrooms do not have doors and some of the windows are broken. The electric wires are precariously exposed to learners and at any given time electrocution can be reported at the school. As examinations are underway learners have to find their comfortable sitting positions to write because furniture is nonexistent. Educators too have their own complications that include among others the unavailability of a decent staff room and toilets. He said that the department of education ought to prioritise its budgetary expenditure towards such situations to ensure that innocent children are safe and in a conducive learning environment.
