Tribute paid to top performers
26 November 2018 | Education
The Westside High School, Junior and Senior primary sections awarded the top performers in these respective phases during two very glitzy events.
The first took place on Tuesday 6 November in the Westside High School Hall.
The learners being the guests of honour were not only the ones being awarded for their academic progress but also provided the entertainment for the evening. Comical performances showcased their potential.
The top performing students were awarded for obtaining 80% or more in their respective subjects. The commitment and dedication of those who performed the best in their respective class groups or in the respective grades were also acknowledged.
The Senior Primary prize-giving took place on Thursday 8 November and once again proved to be one of the highlights on the school’s third term calendar.
The parental support was overwhelming and many a proud moments were captured as academic, sport and appreciation awards were presented to the learners.
Franklin Coetzee, Mertelito Oswald and Albertos Haraseb showcased an entertaining karate exhibition, while Angelina Namises provided a beautiful rhythmic gymnastics routine.
In grade 4 Elnic Coetzee was awarded for being the best in her grade. While Shaun !Gaoseb was the top performer in grade 5. Zene Diergaardt received the best in grade 6 award and the dux learner award went to Uaai Uvanga in Grade 7. The Senior Primary prefects were also announced during the event. We wish them a productive and successful 2019.
Epson Kauhe and Ciara Numbala received the Victor and Victrix Ludorm awards for athletics. Angelina Namises, awarded for her rhythmic gymnastics, also received full sports colours for representing the country at the zone six rhythmic gymnastics tournament.
One of the fundamental duties of the school is to create the type of environment that allows each child to reach his full potential. It is always very gratifying to see the learners excelling in sport or academically.
