In assembly this week two of our Grade 10 learners had a wonderful message to share: As quoted by Garrit Ievers in assembly this week.

Following on from last week’s message about how to be a great friend, Miss Bloem delighted us with a wonderful story in assembly about how we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.

We might think that this person won’t be a good friend purely by the looks of them, but they could turn out to be the perfect friend to help you out in situations.

Let’s be mindful of our peers’ talents and what they have to offer as a person and not judge them by their appearances. [read more]
