News & Events

Raising the pace of basketball


Grace College is delighted to receive a new basketball scoreboard and two shot clocks. Valued contributions from ‘Ubuntu Family Funeral Group’, ‘Farm to You’ a subsidiary of Khulisani Farming and the Augustus family made the purchase of these items possible. Keeping track of the team’s progress in a basketball game is vital for our fans to enjoy the thrill of competition, and the digital score board will assist with this. In basketball, the shot clock is a timer designed to increase the game's pace. The shot clock ups the ante on our scoring, keeping the game more exciting for the fans, teams and coaches.
 
We look forward to raising our game during the upcoming season, with the arrival of this new equipment.

Farewell Tea for matric mums leaving Grace College


On Saturday, 20 October 2018, matric mums who have reached the end of their journey as Grace College parents, attended an afternoon tea at school. This provided the opportunity to; hear encouraging stories from others who have walked this path before them, say goodbye by ringing the bell and fellowship together. The Head Girl of 2014, Brennah Coslett, spoke to the moms about what to expect from their children when their school careers end. Brennah was in matric when this group of matrics joined in Grade 8. This farewell tea was initiated by Mrs Dewing and will continue to be an annual event on the Grace College calendar.

Personal safety presentation by Debbie Preston


Debbie Preston, a teacher and co-owner of Knight Security Solutions, delivered a personal safety presentation at Grace College recently. The aim of her talk was to alert pupils and staff to be aware of the responsibility they personally have to protect themselves from danger. The talk was loosely based on the colour code system of mental awareness, developed by the late Jeff Cooper (May 10, 1920 – September 25, 2006) who was a US Marine.

The “Color Code” has been taught by police instructors for many years. Cooper broke down situational awareness into four levels of escalating degrees of preparation for police use of deadly force. This system is a mental process, not a physical one, and should be utilized whether or not you are armed. Being alert may help you to avoid a deadly threat in the first place, which is always the preferred outcome.

This was a valuable reminder of what we can all do to improve our level of personal safety on a daily basis just by changing how we think.
