Congratulations to our Grade 12 students! We are very proud of you. We wish you all the best for your future.
Today was not the first day back at school for Konnie, but he certainly celebrated his arrival at school this morning as if it had been his first. He welcomed staff and students and took his time before entering the building and going to his office.
In his book “Man Meets Dog” Nobel Prize winning ethnologist Konrad Lorenz, claims that dogs can smile and even laugh. I am pretty sure that I saw a huge smile on Konnie’s face today! A big thank you to Kate for looking after Konnie so well, he looks very healthy and happy!
Student: “I think we need to think about calling him Konrad from now on – he has grown so much!”

It so good to hear your voices in the school building! Grade 10 students returned to school after the temporary closure and seemed very glad to be back. The class was divided into two groups, with each group occupying a room. Like Grade 5 last week, the Grade 10 students had an open air PE lesson on the roof top terrace.
Grade 1 students returned back to school this week, too – check the blog for some photos of the class tomorrow!
If you can recall, Grade 11 was meant to have an Easter Egg Hunt as a Habitat for Humanity fundraiser on the 2nd of April. Sadly, it had to be canceled due to the corona virus and the temporary school closure.
Grade 11 has decided to use it to make small gift bags for any students that have returned back to school or any that will be returning soon.
Hopefully these gifts will inspire you to donate for our cause. Even though our trip to Romania was canceled, we have made the decision to continue to fundraise for a project called “save the saviors”.
Habitat for Humanity Romania, in partnership with the Moinesti Ambulance Center will build an Emergency Center, which will serve over 65.000 people from 11 communities in NE part of Romania. All the money that we raise will go towards making a new and better center for our saviors. You would be #savingthesavior. To make any donations, you can do it via this website link, which leads to the fundraising page of the H.I.S. Grade 11 students:

They found it easy to think of games to play that would help them keep the required distance from each other. Thank you for being so mindful and caring – it’s lovely to have you back at school!
Too all those of you waiting patiently at home: We are thinking of you and we hope to welcome you back soon, too.
Konnie found a massive stick on our walk the other day. He insisted on carrying it the whole way home!
Here he is listening to birds on this morning’s walk.
Only Konnie could find a football by the river. He had great fun playing in the water and chasing the ball. He had a well-earned rest afterwards.
Luckily I did not come across any sleeping lions but a beautiful jungle full of wildlife and flowers. Take a peek:
…and find out what’s growing on the playground.
I’m sure you spotted where on the playground the photos were taken, right?!
As beautiful as the flowers are to look at – I cannot wait to hear the sound of you playing, meeting, chatting, climbing on the playground again!
