“In Pursuit of Truth”
A Message from our Principal
Our annual Speech Night and prize giving is the culmination of our Matric
Academic Calendar. We were inspired by our guest speaker, Dr Amon
Kasambala, to surround ourselves with people who will challenge us and not
just those who make us feel safe. He pointed out that making mistakes and
being wrong is not final, nor fatal, using Einstein as an example.
I was reminded of the following quote:
“Kids will take a chance on being wrong. We don’t. We run our businesses
this way too – I believe the stigma attached to being wrong is one of the
worst conditions to hit the business world. It’s created a body-swerving blame
culture. A culture that stays within a comfort zone because outside of that is
risky and precarious. Where heads are on the line. A place where internal
politics and saving face is more important than actually getting along and
doing a job well.” Ken Robinson on Ted Talks
We congratulate all our prize winners (see page 2 – 9) and wish our Matrics
well.
This year, three of our girls have been awarded training contracts with Accountancy firms. Kylie
Tregoning, in Grade 12 and Saskia Eggers in Grade 11 with Deloitte and Carey Glover, in Grade
12, a bursary and contract with BDO South Africa. We congratulate these girls!
We have had a successful hand over of leadership to our new prefect and mentor bodies and
look forward to another year of leadership development and opportunity for our Grade 12 girls.
Our Jubilee festivities are done. Sadly! The ball last Friday was magnificent (see page 17)!
We appreciate all our parents and teachers who added spice to the year. I particularly thank
our PTA and Mothers’ Committee who work really hard at our special functions!

degree in Human Movement Science and is currently
doing her honours in Corporate Wellness and intends

children next year. She served on her residence committee as Head of Community

SPORT – HIGH SCHOOL
Golf
Our Fatima team comprising of Courtney Sykes and Brittney-Fay Berger had a fantastic day
yesterday at Kloof Country Club where they played St Mary’s Kloof. They played in light
rain and made a great pairing (both girls playing below their handicaps) beating St Mary’s
very convincingly. They had a lot of fun and the final score was 23 to Fatima, 18 to St
Mary’s. Well done, girls! Great to see our young golfers out there!
SPORT – JUNIOR SCHOOL
Senior Primary Team Tennis
Hannah Bowes, Emma Stobart, Gabriella Koenig and Nicky Lombard represented Fatima in
a tennis match against DGC. The girls played well and the final result was a draw, as both
schools had won the same number of games. This is a good start Fatima Tennis players!
Keep it up!

Grade 6 & 7 Ladder League Tennis
The following girls have entered the Ladder League this term:
Robynne Bloch
Hannah Bowes
Jayde Emanuel
Lexa Gorlei
Gabrielle Koenig
Courtney Hill
Hannah Hirst
Lauren Hohls
Ashleigh Hold
Nicky Lombard
Cailin Prinsloo
Tannah Swart
Emma Stobart
Jenna Surmon
Rachel Wilkinson
The aim of this Ladder League is two-fold. While we want to provide a competitive opportunity for
our budding tennis players, we want to also provide a platform where those who have displayed
good potential for the game, can learn the “nitty-gritties” of tennis etiquette, rules and scoring. The
girls will play three singles matches against each other each week.
On Saturday, the 18th October the first round of the Ladder League was played. However it was
called off after the first few matches due to rain. The girls are in the process of catching up these
matches at break times. It was such a pity because each player brought a good vibe to the courts,
despite the weather, and all were looking forward to lovely morning of tennis.
The results of the first few games were as follows:
Gabrielle Koenig
Lauren Hohls
Hannah Hirst
won 6 – 5 (a very close match!)
won 6 – 0
won 6 – 3
The girls aim to accumulate as many points as they can along the way, resulting in a champion
and runner-up by the end of November. The real champions at the end of this League will be the
girls who have progressed and learnt new aspects of the game. Good luck to all the girls as you get
through this tennis.
The next round of matches will be played this Saturday, starting at 9:00am.
Senior Primary Swimming
On Tuesday, 21 October, the �A’ Swimming team competed in a gala at Atholton Primary,
against the North Durban schools. Our Fatima swimmers were outstanding! In my short time
at this school, I have never felt a team pull together and egg each other on so positively,
and have so much FUN! I have never witnessed a team beating everyone else by half a
length and sometimes more, in so many events!
It is extremely evident that the efforts the girls have put into their off season training had
already started paying off! Well done to you all! The challenge now, is to continue building
on this solid platform, in preparation for the galas ahead. Each gala that we enter will be
more demanding and I have faith in our swimmers and their ability to rise and be noticed in
this tough arena.
Our swimmers were placed 1st in the following events:
U10 – U12:
4x25m Butterfly
U10 & U12:
4x25m Breaststroke
& the 4x25m Ladder Relay
Page 15
U11 & U12: 4x25m Backstroke

“On behalf of the guests at our table, I
would like to thank the committee for
the absolutely wonderful evening on
Friday. The Ball was so very well
organised and we enjoyed every aspect
of it ~ the beautiful tables, the groovy
music, the delicious food ... It was
faultless and it was such a credit to our
beautiful school. Let’s not wait another
60 years before you host another
spectacular evening.“ ~ Chinelle Gaspar
“We danced the night
away like overgrown
teenagers and we all
relished partying with
so many fellow guests
that we knew. Well done
and congratulations again
to you and your
fabulous team”
~ Abby Waller
“Thank you for an amazing,
well organised evening.
What a special treat for us all.”
~ Marilyn Whiteford
“It was an absolutely fantastic
evening. I think an Annual (or at least
every second year) Parents Ball
would be well received.”
~ Candice Gerritsen
“Absolutely fantastic! Well done to all!
~ Anonymous
It felt like we were all teenagers again,
