On Thursday, 14 May 2015 Carter High’s basketball team were privileged to have been coached by Mr Darius Dimavicius a renowned basketball coach from Zalgiris Kaunas Club in Lithuania.

Ex-Carterian circumnavigates the world
Ex-Carterian, Angelo Wilkie-Page, presented the Grade 12 learners with a heart-warming and inspirational talk on Tuesday, 5 May, about his incredible expedition where he is using human power to circumnavigate the world from East to West and Pole to Pole.
Mr Wilkie-Page presented the learners with a powerful PowerPoint presentation to illustrate his amazing and challenging journey thus far. He went on to say that nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it and believe in yourself. He will take eight years to complete this project and would have raised over one million dollars for the HEIFER International Organisation which brings hope and quality of life to many poverty stricken people living in South Africa. This organisation empowers families to develope their communities by providing live stock, seeds, skills development and equipment to sustain an agricultural livelihood thus improving their way of life.
To follow Mr Wilkie-Page’s journey, log into: www.expedition720degrees.com and show your support.
On behalf of Carter High School’s Principal, staff and learners we wish Mr Wilkie-Page great success, courage and enthusiasm as he embarks on the next leg of his project.
Music to our ears
Carter’s songbirds Sinethemba Mkhize, Lunga Rubuluza, Asanda Mthethwa and Cecilia W’emedi are members of the KZN Midlands Youth Choir who took part at the Michaelhouse Music Festival on Saturday, 25 April 2015.
The occasion was an exciting one for all the learners as they had the privilege of sharing the stage with the internationally recognised Kearnsney College Choir and Clifton Prep Elementary choir in a mass performance.
The Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands Youth Choir, the Chanticleer singers and a full Orchestra, conducted by Mr Richard Cock, performed the Mass in G-Major by Schubert. Asanda Mthethwa had the privilege of singing the Tenor solo for the Benedictus, one of the movements in the mass.
The KZN Midlands Youth Choir ended off the evening with an African vibe. This included IsiZulu and gumboot dancing. Cecilia W’emedi, Carter’s Head Girl, sang the solo for one of the songs performed in this medley.
It was encouraging for these learners to have their choir mistress, Mrs Jenny Kirn, in the audience supporting them. Their next performance will take place on the 8th of May, 2015 in the South African Competition which will be held in Pretoria. We wish our learners safe travels and all the best for their performances.
