The ladies of the PGHS matric class of 1981 are celebrating 40 years since they completed their schooling. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the members of this group who now live in other countries, are currently not able to travel to South Africa to attend their Reunion as they had planned.
While trying to organise their Reunion, they became aware that several of their classmates had sadly passed on. In memory of their departed classmates, they wanted to set up a fund to assist one deserving learner at our school.
Money has been donated by many of the classmates, and they approached the school to identify a learner with outstanding qualities who we felt would benefit from this initiative. The learner chosen is Lee-Thabo Msibi, one of our current Deputy Head Girls. Lee-Thabo is a hard-working young lady, who performs well academically as a result of diligence and determination, and has strong leadership qualities. Despite her success and position, Lee-Thabo is always polite, respectful and considerate to everyone with whom she comes into contact.
On Thursday 1 April 2021, Miss Jenny Ketley attended a short ceremony during which Lee-Thabo was presented with a letter written to her by the Class of 1981. Miss Ketley is a former pupil, teacher, Head of Department and Deputy Principal of this school, and is the administrator of the fund set up by the Class of 1981.
We wish to congratulate Lee-Thabo on being selected to receive this generous sponsorship. We would also like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the ladies of the Class of ’81 for their kindness and their continued interest in and support of their school, even after all these years.
