Camps Bay Primary School recently hosted their Annual Finale Awards Ceremony, held at the school.
Finale is an opportunity to reflect on the year that was and honour students who have excelled in academic, sports or cultural activities. Acting Principal, Mrs Liesel Visagie, officiated the ceremony.
Said Visagie, “I can’t believe that we are heading towards the end of 2019. I also can’t believe that I have been part of this community for 20 years. I still remember my first Finale under the leadership of Mr Seagall, and all I thought was… wow, what a privilege to teach at a school such as this – so different from my own schooling experience.”
“The children of Camps Bay Primary continue to excel in all spheres of school life: in the classroom, in the cultural sphere and on the sports field. This is what makes our school so special.”
Some of the special awards handed out at the function were:
- Principal’s Award – Lihle Damoyi and Alex Smith
- Watson Honour Trophy – James Heather-Clarke and Jessica Visagie
- Dedication Trophy – Asia Yarlett and Fergus Tayler
- Service Trophy – Lelia Starkey and Juliette de Villiers
Mrs Visagie congratulated the Top 10 Academic Achievers in Grade 7 who were:
1st – James Heather-Clarke
2nd – Benn McWilliam
3rd – Nathan Segall
4th – Angelina Lampropoulou
5th – Lelia Starkey
6th – Asia Yarlett
7th – Noah Michael
8th – Aiden Weiner
9th – Jessica Visagie
10th – George Lampropoulos
Mrs Visagie thanked members of the Camps Bay Primary School SGB for their service.
Said Visagie, “The SGB has been very busy this year, interviews, expansion projects, policies etc. Their input has been significant and I would like to acknowledge the tremendous work they have done.”
In closing, Mrs Visage wished the Grade 7s well as they continue their school journey at high school, the majority who continue their schooling at Camps Bay High School.
Concluded Visagie, “Your journey to high school should be an exciting one, although it might seem overwhelming, we know that each one of you has the potential to become your own person and achieve greatness. Remember us when you become famous”.
