Carter Celebrates Cultural Day
The energy in the air was electrifying as preparations were underway at Carter’s Cultural Day which took place on Friday, 26 September 2014. Teachers together with their learners, set up stalls from fourteen different countries and cultures. This included dressing the part as well as supplying various foods from that particular country.
While the learners had an opportunity to taste test the various foods on offer, the school was entertained by various forms of Zulu Dancing, Hip-Hop, traditional Indian Dancers, Afrikaans choir and poets.
Our judges, Gordon Mc Ramsey, Nigella Mc Lawson Nel and Pete Mac Goffe De Goede had the difficult task of identifying three stalls that stood out from the rest. In the end it was Morocco who won, with Middle East in second and IsiZulu third.
The event was a resounding success and would not have been made possible without the commitment and dedication of our wonderful staff and learners at Carter High School. I am looking forward to a bigger and better Cultural Day next year.
In celebration of Halloween, Carter High held a Halloween Social on Friday, 26 September 2014 in the Hall. The Grade 11 Committee under the guidance of Mrs Lauren Pieters and Ms Melanie Hethor, created a spooky themed entrance for guests to make their way through to the Hall. The thunder and lightning added the ambiance for a fun-filled scary evening.
We would like to congratulate and thank Mrs Pieters, Ms Hethor and the Grade 11 Committee for a very successful social.
