Since our previous newsletter, we were excited to learn of the achievements of some of our pupils. Well done to the following achievers:

Synchronised Figure Ice Skating:

Well done to Michaela Atherton and Jamaica-Rose Brunda of Grade Ten, both of whom are competing in the finals of the Provincial Figure Skating competition. While together they are doing really well in the Synchro competitions, both have also excelled as individuals, with Michaela achieving First Place in her grade, and Jamaica-Rose scoring a Second- and Third Place.

Mathhew Samuels won the Cape Inter-Provincial Championship. He improved his sessions best and won by a 10-mark difference. Matthew was also nominated for a special award, for the Most Artistic Skaer of 2012.


We were very pleased to learn that Oscar Armstrong of Grade Nine has been ranked Eighth in the work in the Under-18 Kiteboard Course Racing. Well done to him.

Santa's Shoebox Project:

Camps Bay Schools' pupils supported this initiative (see and put together no less than 149 "Santa Shoeboxes". Thanks to the drive and initiative of Maxine Beimel and her Interact committee. We hav been able to brighten the lives of 149 desperately poor people who will be the recipients of these generous gifts.

On Thursday, Maxine hands in the boxes at the NG Kerk in Kloof Street and then  will be working there for about five days to assist with the co-ordination of this initiative.

Yours sincerely
