Camps Bay High School

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

first day of the 2010 school year.

When the bell rang at 8am pupils went into as­sem­bly, af­ter which they at­tended meet­ings for each of their grades. With the ad­min and break out of the way, it was down to the busi­ness of learn­ing.

Dis­ci­pline started early, with the school’s dis­ci­pline heads lay­ing down the law.

At the first as­sem­bly, prin­ci­pal David de Korte said the school had achieved a 100 per­cent pass rate for the first time in a num­ber of years with four pupils who had failed the term in both June and Septem­ber also get­ting through the fi­nals.

De Korte said the school had set it­self three goals for the year – grow­ing the con­cept of be­ing “proudly Camps Bay”, go­ing green and in­creas­ing its fo­cus on reg­u­lar and rig­or­ous work.

Chal­lenges for the school would be the World Cup five-week hol­i­day in June, af­ter which teach­ers might find it dif­fi­cult to get pupils back into the swing of things, and the ef­fects that the re­ces­sion had on par­ents’ abil­ity to pay school fees.
