Matric Learner and Head of Peer Guides
"Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to accomplish something BIG that we fail to notice the little things that gives life its magic."
For the seniors, the start of the third term always brings an atmosphere of stress. The matrics are getting ready for their prelim and final exams, the Grade 11s are involved in leadership interviews and speeches and the other grades are watching with anticipation, waiting for their turn. In the midst of these stressors are exciting things like the upcoming house singing competition and the matric 40 days countdown. Being in matric this year has really changed my perspective on things as I start to get weirdly nostalgic every time I do something at Wynberg for the last time, even the small things, like filling in my timetable on my term planner. This is why I want to encourage you to take the time to enjoy these things and live in the moment to make every day at high school special!
So whether you are in Grade 8 and your high school career is only just beginning, or you are in matric and you are excited for the next chapter in your life, take time to appreciate the things you enjoy about Wynberg and make the most of the time you have left.
