This afternoon members of the uniform bodies turned in full force to have fun under the hot sun. Some were seen marching while others were learning how to hoist the flag. It was a nice afternoon to do fun things under the hot sun and the students were literally oblivious to the scorching sun.

All in all it was the spirit of the uniform bodies that prevail. Aye, aye, have fun before you say bye bye.

During the recent school holidays some dedicated members of the Music Club congregated in a music studio at Piano World Music Centre to practise their pieces. Among them were some visually challenged students of the school.

"The great piano virtuoso Paderewski was once playing before an audience of the rich and the royal. After a brilliant performance, an elegant lady waxed ecstatic over the great artist. She said, “Ah Maestro, you are a genius!” Paderewski tartly replied, “Ah yes, madam, but before I was a genius I was a clod!” What he was saying was that his present acclaim was not handed to him on a silver platter. He, too, was once a little boy laboriously practicing his scales. And even at his peak, behind every brilliant performance there were countless hours of practice and preparation."- Eric Butterworth
