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
Congratulations to the following EHS learners:
Erin Cullingworth – 2nd place in Grade 9
Davin Laurings – 1st place in Grade 10

Fantastic! Awesome! Spectacular!
I do not think there are enough superlatives to describe the Little Shop of Horrors production.
The seed was planted four years ago and many said it was not possible – how wrong they were! We watched as the idea grew and finally took root in 2011/2012.
66 cast, 8 staff, three nights, four shows, three sold out and floods of emails tells the story of success. We have certainly lived our motto: “to have life more abundantly”! (Just don’t feed the plants!)
Congratulations to all.
Another huge success for the Performing Arts Department – Hello Dolly
Once again our Performing Arts Department stunned their audiences at the Baxter with a superbly polished performance of Grease, our 2017 Musical Production.
The Performing Arts department has recently announced that the 2019 production will be Peter Pan.
