Welcome back to another exhilarating school year filled with promise, potential, and palpable enthusiasm! As the sun rises on the academic landscape, our hallways echo with the vibrant hum of excitement. The corridors, silent in December, have now come alive with the footsteps of eager learners, rekindling the heartwarming energy that marks the beginning of a new chapter.
In these initial weeks, our students have embarked on a journey of discovery, meeting new teachers, and forming bonds that will undoubtedly shape their academic adventure. Friendships are being forged, connections are strengthening, and the atmosphere is charged with the promise of collaboration and growth.
For our newest additions, the Ruthies entering Grade 8, this marks not just the start of another school year, but a profound leap into the next stage of their lives. The air is filled with the electric buzz of anticipation as they navigate through the corridors, absorbing the wealth of knowledge that awaits them. This is not merely the commencement of a school year; it's the initiation into the start of the rest of their lives. Allow me to introduce you to our Ruth First class of 2024:
Anopa Sibanda joins us from Galway Primary School and in her first few weeks at Jeppe she has enjoyed having a new sense of responsibility and independence as a High School learner. Oratile Bilson (Laerskool Witfield) says that she has loved the chance to challenge herself and Khanya Mtyali (Dinwiddie Primary) can't believe how many extramural activities are available.
Keren Djoko (Sir Edmund Hillary Primary) is looking forward to fulfilling her potential academically and representing the school in sport and Tshiamo Lukele (Norwood Primary School) is enjoying the diversity in the school. Makaziwe Mbambo (Freeway Park Primary), Basetsana Moagi (Parkhurst Primary) and Tshiamo Monkoe (Sir Edmund Hillary) have found that while adjusting to a new environment has been challenging, they have really enjoyed making new friends. Hope Luzolo (Sir Edmund Hillary) loves the beauty of the old school buildings surrounded by the towering trees!
Buhle Msimango (Galway Primary) has already started playing volleyball and is looking forward to the joining the Debating team. Claire Zengenene (Kensington Ridge Primary) cannot wait for the Interhouse Gala and the Flower Show - both are historic events in the school calendar.
Esmari Alberts (Arbor Primary) already feels like she belongs to the broader Jeppe community and Nontobeko Ndlovu (H.A. Jack Primary) is enjoying learning to play tennis. Ephratah Mekonnen (Sir Edmund Hillary) wishes that there was more than 24 hours in the day so that she could do every extramural activity available! While Tamlyn Williams loves that there are rabbits and other animals, in the Life Sciences department, that they can pet and feed. Jessica Ramagampane (Observatory Girls Primary) is excited that all of her teachers are so engaging and that every lesson is fun.
Lethubuhle Ncube (Leicester Road Primary) and Berrsheba Legesse (Houghton Primary) have jumped straight into the school's sports calendar and are already representing Jeppe at volleyball and cricket respectively. Berrsheba wants to be another one of the famous Jeppe Girls who have gone on to represent Gauteng and the Proteas ladies teams.
