In a continuing drive to excellence, our school organised a classroom competition. A team of judges from non-teaching staff assessed each classroom in aspects such as: creativity of displays, how God is revealed through the subject, the displaying of students’ work and neatness of room amongst others.
There was a flurry of activity as the competition date drew near. The team of judges were in for a delightful surprise as they witnessed the wonderful use of colour, visual stimulation, creative and artistic flair along with each staff member’s passion for their subject. There were several classrooms which deserved to win. This made the judges’ decision quite difficult! Congratulations to Mrs Venter whose Maths classroom won 1st place. Joint 2nd place was awarded to Mrs Poddar (Business and Communications Systems classroom) and to Mrs Milis-Hopa (Library). The 3rd place was won by the Physical Education room re-arranged and re-organised by Mr Jason Poddar. The judges awarded a 4th prize to Mrs Mabhena for the Spanish classroom which was bright, colourful, welcoming and truly reflective of Spanish culture and language
The competition achieved its desired goal – to drive up standards. As you walk into each classroom, there is an air of accomplishment and pride. God is glorified through the beauty of the displays and the inspiring presentation of students’ work and achievement. Well done one and all!
Already, we can’t wait for classroom competition 2014!!!
