DIALOGUE DAY

Last week our Senior school community engaged in our first ever Dialogue Day.

Dialogue Day provided a crucial, safe and empowering opportunity for all students to explore issues of identity, belonging and bias, to hear each other’s experiences, and to explore ways of creating a greater sense of belonging for all at the school.

Twenty-five of our staff were trained and acted as facilitators, with the overall day being facilitated by Dylan Wray and Roy Hellenberg of Shikaya and Futureproof Schools and authors of ‘A School Where I Belong’.

We are incredibly proud of our students for the way in which they wholeheartedly embraced this day, and for bravely and actively participating in this important dialogue.

We look forward to continuing this dialogue, and many of the like, in the everyday life of Herschel.

School Song

We are assembled here in love,
We are united, we care for one another.
The greatest lesson of all is the one
That teaches us to live together, together.

Refrain:
Everyone’s a spark and in the night
Together we make a light, a fire burning bright
Ad Dei Gloriam; Inkosi mayibongwe:
To the glory of our God: this is what we believe.

In times of trouble we support
Our fellows; we are taught to be there for our friends.
And all around us, there will be
That special unity, that binds us all together.

If we come back after many years,
We will think fondly of the things that we remember,
And the friends that we made then,
These will be friends forever, forever.

By Thandi Siebert, Head Girl 1993
