Herschel girls give back

In their technology class this year, our girls have been busy making clothing and toys for babies which get donated to The Zoe Project. In collaboration with this, the Grade 9E class decided to run a collection where they collected toiletries for mom and baby, nappies, sanitary pads, etc. Nina Lewis, using her own initiative, also produced three large shopping bags of sewn goods to give to the Zoe Project.

Nina Lewis and Emma Theron accompanied Technology teacher Mrs Margot Roebert yesterday for the handover. This was held in conjunction with other organisations such as Rotary Rondebosch and Breadline Africa, who donated and converted three containers for The Zoe Project to further their work of counselling and support; they plan to run antenatal classes, offer drug support, support for new moms, and so much more in these three beautifully refurbished containers.

What a great initiative…well done girls!

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.
