Movie & Cultural Immersion

Hello Students and Parents,

Our next get together is sure to be a great night – the Invictus and cultural immersion night! This will be held on Monday the 25th of November at the Carramar campus running from 4pm – 8pm. We will hopefully return to the Duncraig campus at approximately 8.30pm, however, students can text you when we’re on our way. We will be taking the Duncraig students by mini-bus to Carramar and will return to the Duncraig campus at approximately 8.30pm where parents can pick their children up. If you would rather pick them up from Carramar then please let us know in advance for transport booking purposes. Students can wear the sports uniform on this day.

The evening will begin with a look at the different languages of South Africa and in particular Afrikaans and Xhosa where we will learn a few common phrases to help us when we are there.
This will be followed by some pizza (so please bring $5 and any snacks) before we settle in to watch the movie Invictus which is set during the time that apartheid was being dismantled. The fabulous Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon play the roles of Nelson Mandela and Francois Pienaar focusing on their critical interaction in the healing process of the South African nation.

Keep going with your fundraising activities. We are hearing some great stories and can’t wait to hear you share your experiences on this night.

If there are any questions then please do not hesitate to contact one of us.

Kind regards,

Mr Merrifield
