CBHS Newsletter 6 - Jul '12

Dear Parents

The Third Term is the time for pupils to really get serious about their work. Everyone has written an exam and received the results so that plans can be made and adjustments can be based on this.

For the pupils who want to improve their academic performance, the school does offer an array of help. This comes by way of the following:

The subjects listed below offer regular extra lessons after school at no cost to assist pupils who need help. For subjects not listed below, extra lessons will be offered when pupils request them:

A number of tours and camps took place in the holidays and this last weekend. The following reports are included for your interest:

Soccer Tour to Bloemfontein:

Goal Scorers: Leah Cotton, Faakirah Bassidien and Marcelle Esterhuizen

The U/19 Soccer Girls went on tour to Bloemfontein in order to participate in the Brebner High School Girls U/19 Soccer Festival, which took place from 23rd June 2012 until 25th June 2012.

Brebner High School hosted the first annual Girls U/19 Soccer Festival at their school and invited Camps Bay High to participate. This was a great opportunity for our girls to compete against teams from other cities. They hosted this tournament in order to promote girls soccer in South Africa. They accommodated us with open arms at Brebner hostel and the girls learnt quickly to adapt to the ways and means of living in a school residence.

Tour Scores

2-0 Lost (Brebner)
1-0 Won (Sasol) Goalscorer: Leah
1-1 Drew (Benoni) Goalscorer: Faakirah
0-0 Drew
5-3 Lost (Brebner) Goalscorers: Faakirah, Marcelle

Our girls ended up fourth out of six schools and played with so much passion and dedication. We had a great time in Bloemfontein and endured the cold, with all the excitement of the actual matches, fun at the Spur Restaurant, visiting the Waterfront and meeting the Bloemfontein Celtic PSL players.

CBHS First Team Rugby Tour to East London:

The First team rugby boys embarked on their first tour to East London in the June holidays. After flying into the 1970’s styled East London airport the boys settled into their accommodation along the Eastern Beach.

The first match was against the Raptors a composite side made up from three schools in the greater East London region. A tight match was won 10-7 with Storm Fisher being the lone try scorer.

The boys had a lot of down time which was spent doing numerous activities like, touch-rugby on the beach, ten-pin bowling, 4D simulations, malling, playing pool and a lot of Frieslanding (ask any First Team Rugby player, and he’ll explain the term to you…).

The second match was a far better performance and the boys ran out comfortable 17-5 winners against Port Alfred High, with Chad-Lee Cloete and Masibulele Masekwana scoring tries.

Special mention should be made of the Man of the Match for both games:
For the first match, this was Yamkela Mahlangabeza and for the second match, Ntsika Shushu. Both team members played excellent games! Cole Krohn (captain) was named as the Player of the Tournament for his outstanding play and leadership on and off the field.

After four days of fun, rugby and many laughs, it was time to head back to the wet and cold weather of Cape Town. A great time was had by all.

Drama Excursion to Grahamstown:

On the very cold and very dark morning of the 8th of July 2012, the Grade 12 Drama Class embarked on the long journey to the Arts Festival capital of South Africa, Grahamstown. The aim of our trip: a week filled with innovative productions and inspiring workshops.

The annual Grahamstown Arts Festival is a hub of artistic creativity and is world-renowned, brimming with opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals and to view theatre of all genres. It is this environment and these opportunities that most believe feeds and nurtures our souls.

This is exactly what we did for a week. We walked. We laughed. We met and engaged with people from all walks of life. We rid ourselves of our inhibitions and opened our hearts and minds to new learning experiences. We gained new perspectives. We listened to the masters in their fields. We discussed the core of what makes good theatre and how to develop our ideas. We laughed along with the likes of Rob van Vuuren and James Cairns. We listened tentatively to the likes of Tara Knotgutt, Yvette Hardie and Nick Boraine. We marvelled at the visual brilliance of Andrew Buckland and the artistic direction of Rob Murray. We ate. We slept. We cried. We observed. We danced. We lived. And ultimately, we nurtured our souls. The Grahamstown Arts Festival was an opportunity for us to grow as performers, creators, directors, writers and all in all better-rounded people.

Music Camp at Franschhoek:

The music Department had their yearly camp at the Franschhoek Travellers Lodge. It is a time when we celebrate talent and the company of our fellow musicians.

On Friday we rehearsed for four hours and on Saturday for seven hours. Guitar players’ fingers were sore, Wind players were out of breath and piano players’ necks hurt. The students were an absolute joy to have around and I thoroughly enjoyed their spunky personalities. Thank you to Mr Grobler for driving us and Mr Cawood for working out our menu.

There have been some exciting developments:

Water Pipes and the Closed Quad:
As mentioned earlier, we have been granted money from the Department of Education to replace our main underground water pipes. This project will begin later this term. One of the areas that we need to dig up is the closed quad. After this project is complete we will have a new surface in this quadrangle.

New Classrooms:
We also spoke at the parent meeting about long term plans to build two new classrooms and a Cultural Centre for the Drama classes. The School Governors took another step closer to take this project to the next level to get professional plans and costing for this project. Thus far, it appears that we can afford to achieve this with our current financial resources and reserves.


The sport fixtures have been published (online here) as well as the Test and Project Assignment calendar (here). We are all set for the Third Term. I encourage you to take part in the school programme by supporting the cultural and sporting events this term.

Yours sincerely
