With the end of the school year comes our annual LIV School Prize-giving. This event took place on the 6th of December 2017. The heart of our teaching staff is to recognise not just academic achievement of our students but also the progress that many have made over the year. In our junior classes we also celebrate improvement in focus and behaviour in the classroom. We were delighted with how enthusiastically our students cheered with each of the certificates handed out – particularly for those students achieving top in their class. Their fellow students often know what extra work outside the classroom has been done to gain good grades and what personal difficulties and challenges have been overcome. Our most prized award this year was our Grade 11 Dux. We are so excited as a Village that in 2018 we will have a Grade 12 class sitting their Matrix and preparing for pursuing God’s plans for them once they have graduated from school.
Our guest speaker this year was Richard Lennox from Haven Academy . He gave a motivational speech about understanding the greater purpose of education and the skills that are developed in school. Our Principal, Jonathan Tanyanyiwa, expressed gratitude for our teaching staff – most who make significant sacrifices to be part of our school, the mothers supporting our children, the staff on the Village that contribute to the school and the leadership of LIV Village for their mentorship. We also said goodbye to three teachers who will be greatly missed! Mrs Kate Hunt, Ms Carrie-Ann Bennett and Ms Amber Stockdale will leave a big gap in the hearts of the LIV-children but we wish them all the best for their future endeavours and pray God’s favour over them.
Our LIV2Educate programme is focused on supporting the ongoing education of our children. Thank you to those that are already part of this, we would love to hear from any individuals or organisations that want to support our children’s education.
