JOURNEY OF WOMEN’S LIBERATION

Our Gr 9 elective group, “Girl power – where is the glass ceiling?” presented some innovative presentations with live interactive role play on the 1920s . Working together with the History Department, the group is currently investigating the journey of women’s liberation in the twentieth century through to current issues. Issues they have investigated include “Economic changes for women in the work place and society”, “Fashion: Clothing as a political and social statement” and “Social Changes: behaviour, values, activities, dance styles, music.”

The presentations were very creative and informative, and helped students visualise life in the 1920s!

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
