Annual Grade 12 Art Expo
On Friday, 12 September 2014 the Annual Art Exhibition, which was co-ordinated by Ms Susan Gray, the Grade 12 Art Teacher, took place.
The evening was abuzz with ooh’s and aah’s as parents and students got to view the Grade 12’s art work. The adjudicator was extremely impressed with the quality of work our learners had produced and commended Mrs Gray on her teaching and on her students’ achievements.
Congratulations to these learners and we wish them well for the up and coming final examinations.
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.

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!
