A blast from the past

As a traditional welcoming to the new grade eights of the school and the LRC’s of 2020 hosted the grade 8 concert. This is done to welcome the new learners and give them a platform to show case their talent.

The concert took place on 21 February, themed “Back in time” bringing the afros and old classic jazz back from the closets.

The night brought back memories parents thought they had forgotten about. People dressed up as 'back in the day'. The time, energy and effort that went into the entire night was noticeable. Abigail Van Wyk, a grade eight learner, said that they stayed after school almost every day, she is also glad for all they went through because it taught them what it really means to work as a team and she was proud of her fellow class mates.

Hosting such an event, especially one that was open to the public can be very stressful, but all turned out well. The school looked like it time travelled back to the 80's. Parents sang along to songs that took them back to when they were newcomers like their kids that night. During the evening games and quizzes were played by the mc, who really knew how to jazz things up a bit.

After an interview was done with the chairperson James-Dean Goagoseb, he said that the concert wasn't his work but the work of the LRC's, Ms Beukes and Ms January who helped make the concert a success. James said that watching the show come to life gave him relief as he expected the worst, but the grade eights gave their best. All in all he said it was a very stressful period especially during the final production week. Even though looking back he sees all the stress was not worthwhile, it all paid off at the end of the day.

Mr William Innes, the guardian of the LRC's said: "It was fantastic to see how it all came together and what a victory of a night it was at the end of the day".

The grade eights were officially welcomed and given the privilege to wear their Westside High red and blue striped ties. The grade 8’s are hereby welcomed into the Westside High family.
