The 2019 school year started, as usual, with much excitement for the Grade 7 learners, who were eager to finally be the “seniors” of the school. Every year, the Grade 7 teachers introduce a unique theme for that particular year’s class, in order to make their final year as Kenridge learners as special as possible. To inspire the learners to make the most of what 2019 has to offer, the theme is “This is ME!” , based on the song from The Greatest Showman, and here are some of the words:
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me!
Throughout their school careers, but especially in 2019, all teachers will continue to encourage the learners to be themselves in everything they do, and whilst it may not mean that they will always succeed, we hope that by the end of the year, they will be able to say that they never allowed an opportunity to pass them by.

As Grade 7 educators, our aim is to ensure that your child grows both academically and socially. We take pride in the fact that we have a firm yet open approach with our learners. Ons wil graag gebalanseerde jong mense ontwikkel, wat hard werk, hard lag en die lewe ook voluit geniet.
With so much to look forward to in Grade 7, such as the camp, disco, theme day, Grade 7 concert, Entrepreneurs’ Day, sports tours (and let’s not forget…EXAMS), we trust that the learners will “make no apologies”, say “This is ME!” and make memories that will last a life time.
