And so begins the winding down of our dear high school

This final term of the year – ever – started with an assembly of our sadly depleted school. We talked about the exciting things the students will be doing this term – including camps for each grade – always a highlight of the school year – and sports day which is coming up soon.
We also bade farewell to our dear class 11s. Teachers reflected fondly – and often with great hilarity – on the class; Ulric sang about his son and the S-I-M-P-L-E life; Irene read from that great philosopher and poet, Dr Suess. Then Ulric and Irene took the class 11s (including Aviwe, who is still with us – yay!) over the mountain to Constantia Waldorf where they were greeted with hugs and handshakes and disappeared into the welcoming class there.
The Constantia teachers have made several comments about our class 12s who started there last term – all of them flattering. They have mentioned especially their warmth and maturity and their HEART, which what Imhoff does best!
They are all happy there, but miss Imhoff terribly.

The remainder of the high school; our class 10s, 9s and 8s, look forward to their class camps: the class 10s join Stellenbosch Waldorf School on their Coming of Age Camp in October and the class 9s and 8s will each have their last Imhoff school camp in the week of the 6 – 10 November at Petervale and the Breede River respectively. Lessons continue as usual until the end of the year.
We will see the class 11s again on the evening of Wednesday 25 October when they will join with the class 10s to do presentations: the class 11s, of their social responsibility practical; and the class 10s, of their job shadow – both of which took place in the last two weeks of last term. Thokozani, who was unable to do his class 12 presentation with the others due to illness, will also be doing his class 12 presentation that evening. We look forward to seeing you there!
