The Edgemead matric visual art class of 2019 displayed their final year exhibition on Wednesday 16 October.
Their work was of a high quality and showcased a wide range of styles, techniques and interests. The diverse styles of this year group and their hard working attitude made the exhibition a huge success.
Parents and friends had an opportunity to view the art on display during the evening. It was a wondeful evening in which the artists of Edgemead High School were properly celebrated.
Snapplify raises $2 million to increase access to digital education
We’re pleased and proud to announce that Snapplify has raised $2 million in expansion capital from venture capital firm Knife Capital, and empowered African investment manager Hlayisani Capital’s Hlayisani Growth Fund.
This new partnership compounds several achievements for which we are very proud this year, including recognition from the London Stock Exchange as one of their Companies to Inspire Africa, an invitation to speak with United Nation’s policy makers about digital education in Africa, and prestigious global awards for our innovative solutions for schools, colleges, and universities.
The funds will be used to continue to build excellent educational products for our new and existing clients, and to increase access to Snapplify’s digital education tools across Africa.
EHS netball girls attended the South African Schools Netball – SASN game vs Uganda at the Bellville Velodrome.
Our 11th Annual Guitar Competition took place on Saturday 19 October. Young guitarists from all over the Cape Peninsula came together to showcase their abilities. Despite the competitive aspect of the event, the learners are also afforded the opportunity to grow as performers and to be exposed to the greater classical guitar community. The competition was a great success and it was especially rewarding for parents and teachers to see the level of confidence and professionalism that was displayed by the performers on the day. Edgemead High School is especially grateful to Paul Bothners who once again sponsored prizes for the category winners and Best Overall Performance trophy winner.
Trophy winners are as follows:
Best Primary School Guitarist – Ruben van Zyl
Best High School Guitarist – Yaaseen Cassiem
Best Beginner Guitarist – Jude Cader
Most Promising Guitarist – Liam Stoffberg
Best Overall Performance – Anekin Pockpass
