Eric Louw’s Orators To The Fore!

3 Eric Louw High School students were selected for the Limpopo debating team. This competition will take place from 3-10 October on Robbin Island in the Cape. A team consists of just four team members and Louwtjies placed a record number of three learners in the team. This is a huge competition, if we keep in mind that teams across Africa have entered. The theme is “20 Years after democracy, what it means to you and what you can recommend, on how the mistakes the government is still making, can be made right.”

The school is immensely proud of Dinéy Fielding, Jannemari Fourie and Daniel Nthambeleni.

Other bowlers who shone were; Kuru Vansia; 1 wicket, Jan-Karl Limbach 2 wickets for five runs and Ravi Vansia 2 wickets for 8 runs, performing not only as top batsman, but also as strike bowler.

Ice Bucket Challenge In Aid of J9 / ALS (Motor Neuron Disease)

Just after the tree-planting, the assembled school got together at the swimming pool to witness the dousing of 9 brave souls, who had volunteered to participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge. This was done in aid of the J9 Foundation, named in honour or Joost van der Westhuizen and his position as a ‘Bok, – scrum half. In addition to two pupils from each grade, Mesdames van Staden and Coetzee had put their hands up in support of this extremely worthy cause. Inevitably, the event ended up with various willing and unwilling participants having a dunking in the pool. The event ended of with a spirited rendition of the School Anthem.

Here’s the gallery;

J9 Foundation’s Goals

  • To educate the public about Motor Neuron Disease and its effects on both the sufferer and their family.
  • To educate and raise awareness among medical practitioners and nursing staff, to enable them to make earlier and correct diagnoses, leading to better emotional and physical care of a patient.
  • To host unique interesting fund-raising events with the intention, fistly of raising funds and secondly to be of such a newsworthy nature that media attention is triggered anhd which will contribute to raising awareness of this dreadful, debilitating disease.

Eric Louw’s event certainly did this! Congratulations to all of the participants. You’re stars!

Arbor Day at Eric Louw

The entire school assembled on the terrace above the tuck shop on the 3rd September, for the symbolic planting of a tree to celebrate South Africa’s National Arbor Day. Mudzunga Nesindande and Matthew Ngwenya spoke earnestly of the importance of trees for our well being and the need to conserve and extend our nation’s forests. Walter Nesindande was in charge of the ceremony and also gave a short speech on why we celebrate Arbor Day.

Mudzunga and Walter did the actual planting of the tree chosen, a rooi essenhout, which, though not the National Tree of the Year (the Lavender Tree), was chosen and donated by Mr. Fick, to replace the tree which had previously been planted at the spot, as it is much faster growing and in just a few years time will be affording shade for the pupils of Eric Louw as they enjoy their tuck.

Investiture of Prefects for 2014/ 2015

On 29th July, the new prefects making up the Student Leaders Representative Council for 2014/ 2015 were named and awarded their blazers and badges at a ceremony in the school hall, attended by their parents, the students of the school, and the staff.

Click on the images twice to enlarge them. At the end of this post is a link to a full gallery of all of the photos I took. I hope I didn’t miss anyone!

As per the programme above, proceedings started with the inauguration of the Hostel Prefects, followed by the current deputy head girl, (Edith Makhado and deputy head boy (Joe Mathe) reading the SLRC Code of Honour and Code of Conduct respectively, for the incoming school prefects.

The boys, on having their name called, took to the stage first with their parents or sponsors and received their blazers and signed the 40-year-old Prefects Register.

Next was the turn of the girls, who performed a similar ceremony. The Principal, Mrs. Coetzee, congratulated each pupil. All of the new prefects are named above.

Finally, two boys and two girls were called back to the stage and Mrs. Coetzee named the Deputy Head Boy and the Deputy Head Girl. Which revealed who would be the Head Boy and Head Girl for 2014/ 2015.

To close the proceedings, the erstwhile prefects handed over the symbolic flames and banner to the incumbents, followed by Madelé Thiart and Kuldeep Jadeja giving their valedictory speeches, to close off their terms as Head Girl and Head Boy. The assembly then rose for the singing of the School Anthem. Wild congratulations then ensued.

Sincere congratulations from Dumelang! Musina to all of the new members of the SLRC and best wishes for the year ahead.
