Top Readers Awarded at CHS
Reading is one of the vital fundamental skills a child needs in order to learn and progress in life. While embracing the latest technology at Carter High, we encourage our learners to frequent the library not only for research but to broaden their horizons. Our very dynamic librarian, Mrs Sandy Bingel, and her team have encouraged our learners to experience life through books and discover the adventures they hold.
An Achievers Assembly was held on Monday, 18 August 2014 to congratulate the top three learners in each grade for the number of books that they have read to date. Congratulations to the following learners:
Top three Grade 8‘s: Daniel Kilyobo read 140 books, Zama Madziba read 47 books and Sibusisiwe Zondi read 39 books.

Another Carter learner
off to USA
Calyn Reddy, a grade 11 learner from Carter High School, left for America on Friday, 8 August 2014, for ten months. Calyn is one of the thirty learners who are taking part in the AFS Exchange Student Programme.
She will be living in Iowa with another AFS student from the Ukraine. When we asked Calyn why she wanted to be part of this dynamic programme she said that other learners from Carter had inspired her to do so. Shaun Gouws has recently come back from Kansas, describing it as a once in a lifetime opportunity.
We wish Calyn safe travels and all the best on her new adventure!
Carter’s Choirs ranked amongst the top schools in PMB
Carter High School’s Choir and Chamber Choir took part in the eisteddfod on Wednesday, 6 August 2014 which was hosted at Northern Park Primary School. Carter’s Choirs performed against some of the top private schools in PMB and are proud to announce that both choirs were awarded an A+ for their exceptional performances.
The judges commended Carter High on their excellent performances and have extended an invitation for them to perform in Howick in the up and coming weeks.
On behalf of the school we would like to thank Sihle Gule, the choir conductor and Mrs Jenny Kirn, choir mistress on their hard work and dedication. Your devotion shines through the choirs achievements.
