Just before half-term, Michaelhouse hosted the “Strong Mothers, Strong Sons” course run by Megan de Beyer. This is the 16th time Michaelhouse has held the course and, once again, it was fully booked.
The programme deepens a mother’s understanding of herself and offers advice on conscious and intentional parenting, as well as tools that allow boys to become strong and caring men. Topics covered included masculinity, gender differences, social lives of boys and substance abuse, as well as how to tackle emotions.
The course also facilitated self-reflection on parenting styles and why we parent the way we do.
The school counsellor, Tim Jarvis, spoke on “Testosterone Needing Tuition” which looked at masculinity at Michaelhouse, as part of the programme.
Wartburg Kirchdorf School hosted the 16th Illovo Wartburg Classic, a ROAG Series Challenge, on February 15.
The school thanked sponsors, Illovo Sugar, and the Wartburg community as a whole. “We owe much to our loyal farmers of the area, as well at SAPPI, who open their land to us. They cleared, cut and marked the routes for the many athletes participating.”
The weather was a challenging factor during the event, with temperatures rising above 35C. A comment from Tyronne White, who was competing in the 65km for the sixth time: “Wartburg is a deceptively tough course and one where having strong legs and a good day will definitely lead to a good result.”
The school thanked everyone who participated and took time out for an enjoyable family day in the KZN Midlands.
