SENIOR SCHOOL SPEECH NIGHT 2018
One of the highlights of the St Andrew’s calendar is the annual senior school speech night most recently held in October last year.
Chairman of the school board, Dave Morris, opened the event with a talk centred on the strategy sessions and envisioning workshop St Andrew’s staged in preparation for an action document which highlights the key topics to be addressed going forward.
Executive Head Ivanka Acquisto stressed the benefits of an all-girl educational framework and took some time to reflect on the many outstanding alumni who have graduated from St Andrew’s. She also made the telling point that it is teachers who create opportunities for other professions to grow.
Senior School Head Gill Jeffrey described the importance of having the ability to adapt in the modern and sometimes unpredictable working environment and the essential attributes of having empathy and good communication skills.
Our girls’ achievements for 2018 were officially recognised at the awards ceremony, which included a contribution from Head Girl Ncumisa Madolo and her Deputy Head Girls Luandri van Vuuren and Jiaming Li. They reflected on the experiences of the past year based upon its theme, ‘The Future is Ours’.
