Welcome Grade Eights of 2020
January 15, 2020
Waves of nerves and excitement radiated off the grade 8’s of Edenglen High, as they said their goodbyes and headed into the hall, where their 5 year journey at Edenglen high school begins
Once seated in the hall, the teachers and leader body were introduced and the placement of pupils into their respected classes.
Each class, escorted by their class leader, were given a tour around the school as well as the do’s and don’ts. The leaders gave the Grade 8’s some advice on how to survive.
During the day, they were issued with their new Edenglen high kit and had the opportunity to interact with both their register teacher and fellow classmates.
After lunch, they were given their first task as a class. Each class had to prepare a skit of 7 minutes long on any topic they chose. After a few debates, topics were chosen and practice began.
Just before the end of the day, the grade 8’s returned to the hall where they would now have to perform the skits that they had prepared earlier on in the day.
As the day came to a close and the grade 8’s felt a bit more comfortable. Nerves seemed to have subsided, but boy, if they only knew what was lying ahead of them.
Best of luck to the class of 2024
