CBHS Newsletter 10 - Dec '12

7th December 2012

Dear Parents

This is the eighth and final Camps Bay High School's Newsletter for 2012. We were very happy with the pupils overall performance in these final exams. There were very few who will have to repeat their grades. On the other hand, many pupils ended the year with outstanding results.

We have just heard that Danielle Jacobson (Grade 11) has been announced as one of the Nationals winners of the Science Expo. She will now travel overseas next year to compete internationally. Congratulations to her!

Staff News:

At the end of the year it is always sad to say farewell to some teachers:

Ms Marlene Waltke, a student teacher from Germany has taught here for six months as part of the practical teaching component of her degree. She has taught Physical Education and Sport and has been a wonderful addition to the staff.

Mr Thomas Reisenberger returned in the Fourth Term after his round-the-world trip. He has filled in as a Maths teacher and also ran the ‘What’s The Big Idea’ project. As before, Mr Reisenberger, brought a lot of energy and interest into the classes he taught. Next year he begins his work as a lawyer.

Mr Bryn O’Reilly has been the counselor at Camps Bay High School for the last three years. In this position he has helped many pupils through counseling. He will be returning to University to continue with his studies towards qualifying as a psychologist. He has made an extremely valuable contribution to the school and will be sorely missed. We wish him all the best for 2013.

School Fees for 2013:

Please note that the school fees have been revised for next year. To see the new schedule of school fees for 2013, please click here:
