Celebrated local Chef visits Howick High
Howick High School’s Grade 11 Consumer Studies pupils were privileged to have Chef Jackie Cameron from the Jackie Cameron School of Food and Wine visit their class and give them constructive feedback on their novelty iced cakes. It was decided that a cake made by two learners, Hannah Caldecot and Savanna Price, was the overall winner as they made the best use of icing techniques and they were given a signed copy of Jackie’s latest recipe book
Howick High School – dramatic performance at FUNK
Entitled ‘Greek Mythology in Motion’, Howick High School’s performance at the 2016 ‘Funk!’ production was dramatic and educational. The dance told the story of Hades, God of the Underworld, who kidnaps Persephone, daughter of Demeter, to be his Queen. Demeter, distraught over the loss of her daughter, neglects her task as God of the Harvest, in order to search for Persephone and bring her home. This year the show was staged at the Hexagon Theatre in Pietermaritzburg and our Dance Company can be congratulated on their refreshingly enjoyable performance.

Howick High School was approached by Moira Potter of ‘Wildlands’ to contribute towards a ‘Clothes for Life’ project; in conjunction with Nedbank. Howick High has been actively involved in recycling for the last 8 years. Senior pupils are appointed as Recycling Managers and they collect and sort paper recycling on a weekly basis. An appeal was made to the school via the teacher-leaders: Ms Hyslop, Mrs Smith and Mrs Keough, in conjunction with these recycling managers, to donate second-hand clothing. On the day of the collection a steady stream of green bags were brought to the school hall which served as a temporary depot. The clothing was collected by an astonished team of Wildlands staff; a whopping 198,80 kg of clothing was donated towards this very worthwhile project. We are so proud of our school pupils, staff and parents; and thank all those who opened their cupboards and their hearts, to those whose need is greater than ours.
