CBHS Newsletter 10 - July '13

Dear Parents,

Tomorrow a group of nine enthusiastic Drama students under the leadership of Ms Kawalsky leave for Edinburgh. They will be attending the world famous Edinburgh Festival. We believe that up to 2 500 shows are staged every day at this festival. I am sure they will learn a lot through this experience.

Grade Eleven Science Projects

Last week we were treated to a display of all the Grade Eleven Science Projects. A high standard of work was seen across all the presentations. I was pleased to see that many of the projects focussed on environmental issues, which is my personal area of interest. The Science teachers have chosen the best projects to be entered in the Science Expo to be held at the Good Hope Centre. More information on this forthcoming event will be provided closer to the time.

The Shakespeare Schools’ Festival:

This event has been running in South Africa since 2011 and each year encourages schools to perform abridged “thirty minute” versions of Shakespearean plays in their local theatres throughout the country. This year, Camps Bay High School will be participating in this successful event, allowing our cast the opportunity to perform on the Artscape Theatre stage in conjunction with three other schools.

The Festival is a non-competitive, supportive and celebratory opportunity for young people to showcase their acting talents and allows teachers to develop drama skills and explore new ways of teaching through acting.

Camps Bay High School will be showcasing a 1950’s version of Much Ado About Nothing. Tickets are available for R50-00 from Computicket, as well as at the door on the night of the performance. The show starts at 7 p.m. on 1 August 2013. Please come and support this wonderful event.

Pub and Quiz Evening:

The INTERACT CLUB is having a fun-filled Pub Quiz evening on Friday, 2 August 2013 in Seminar Room A. The cost of the ticket is R50-00 which will go towards a fund for a baby with a cleft palate. The evening will start at 6.30 p.m. and you are welcome to bring your own wine. Snacks will be provided. Please buy tickets from the office or at the door.

Camps Bay Primary School Art Auction

This event takes place on Wednesday, 7 August 2013 from 6 p.m. in the CBPS Hall. The Camps Bay Primary children have been hard at work producing ART for the evening – come view and purchase what they have done!
We have also gathered lots of items for auction – from small to big; from paintings to vouchers and in between anything from getaways and sports memorabilia, to wine. There is something for everyone – and everyone is invited. Entrance is free! Refreshments will be on offer too, so come and enjoy a social evening!
