All good things must come to an end
How was 2019 to you as a learner and how did 2019 shape you as an individual?

The most interesting thing was being on the top ten list in my class. Athletics this year was fun because I initially participated instead of watching from the pavilion. 2019 has helped me understand how high school operates.
Georgina Namises- Grade 7A
2019 has been good to me but some people have made it difficult. Since the year is ending people are more enthusiastic for 2020. 2019 taught me that things don’t last forever. It was good and rough at the same time.
Chrizedine Katjito-Grade 8B
It was very hard, with lots of challenges. I went through depression and anxiety. School is tough so I hustle my way through to the top. 2019 has taught me that good things are hard to lose. I enjoyed athletics and am looking forward to 2020.
Linda Iita-Grade 8A
2019 was rough, all activities were tough and work was something else. Everyone was kind of busy. 2018 was smoother this year. I learnt that time is not on our side and every choice made comes with consequences or rewards. Presumably 2020 will be better because I will be stronger and more serious with school.
Ndatunguembo Dumeni-Grade 9A
2019 has been a very sad year. I lost three loved ones in a space of six months. I still made it through with friends like Jolene who stood by me through tough times. 2019 taught me to make memories and enjoy life. Academics improved but I believe I can do better as an individual.
Lakeisha Greeve-Grade 9B
2019 has been rough. Hills and mountains were moved and rivers were crossed. This year played more netball, I also worked beyond my school and have acquired partnerships overseas. 2019 has been a learning curve with no regrets. I learned to love myself more, I also matured more. 2019 taught me to focus on the present not the past.
Chade Uahindua-Grade 10A
2019 started rough but is going well.it has been a tough year in terms of the crime rate and death tolls. 2020 will be better as each day is a new day and presents new opportunities. 2019 taught me that whatever happens in life that makes you fall should not keep you from rising again even if it’s a thousand times.
Jakiro Maseke-Grade 10B
2019 was another filler year. School advanced amazingly. Social benefits have been awesome; the NAMA’s were good and of world class standard. 2019 has taught me that you can’t call everyone a friend. I enjoyed Avengers Endgame and I appreciate all the advancements in the film industry.
Manisha Madzore –Grade 11A
2019 most memorable yet difficult lessons but given space to enjoy livelihood. Above all given me time to focus on what is really important. Even, though it is not over yet, I can still say it is one for the books. I believe each person should learn from the past to improve the future.
Curtis Feris-Grade 11B
At first it was rough getting used to the H.L syllabus. Been passing tests and exams in second trimester in school, I achieved a higher average and proven more focused. Upon finishing my high school I will write online and enhance my writing skills. 2019 has taught me to be independent and should not take anything for granted. I believe that I can achieve more with effort and focus.
