SP Non-Academic Day, also known as NAD Day was a great success this term. The children had a day filled with great activities all over the campus - energy levels exploded in the iKhwezi Sports Centre as pupils all had the opportunity to play indoor soccer with a twist with Mr Meikle. Hip Hop lessons with Miss Wiggett, Bowls on the Astro, Swimming, Frizzbee Golf and Fitness tests were all thoroughly enjoyed. Special thanks to Mrs Purdon and the staff for co-ordinating the fun events. ... See MoreSee Less

Marine Sciences making waves at Thomas More College.
Fifteen Grade 10 pupils from both DBE and IEB schools in the local area, are studying Marine Sciences at the Thomas More College node. Marine Sciences, the first new subject to be added to the curriculum since 2007, is being studied by over 200 Grade 10 pupils across South Africa this year.
Marine Sciences has been developed by the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town and was approved by the Department of Education in 2019 and recognised as an official subject by the IEB in 2021. 
This subject was offered to Grade 10 at pilot schools in the Western Cape last year. The subject offered as an additional eighth subject and lessons are presented twice a week for two hours (5-7 pm), throughout the school year. There will be practical sessions that will be arranged for three or four days, for example during two school holidays of each year. 
Marine Sciences pupils are also participating in TMC’s Eco-Schools LIMPET project (Long-term Intertidal Monitoring through Participation, Evaluation & Training). LIMPET is a coastal monitoring project which involves the monthly monitoring of various marine rocky shore organisms to detect any changes that may be caused by environmental issues. Beach litter (the dirty dozen) is also monitored. In the Cape, this project is run by educators from the Centre for Conservation Education.  We are the only school in South Africa to conduct this project autonomously. Interested pupils are invited to attend the next LIMPET trip to Isipingo beach, which will take place on Saturday 27 March. 
Although Marine Sciences lessons started at the beginning of February, suitable Life Sciences candidates will still be accepted until the end of Term 1 as the syllabi thus far have consisted of similar content.
For enquiries regarding Marine Sciences or the LIMPET project, you are welcome to email Dr Gary Robson grobson@thomasmore.co.zaImage attachmentImage attachment

Grade 1 Career Day brings great excitement to the campus as our little ones think about what they want to be/do when they are older. The landscape has changed so much since Mom and Dad considered their careers.

If we think back to when we were 7 years old, many of us would have wanted to be teachers, lawyers, policemen, firemen, doctors or nurses, yet today the world is filled with opportunities we never knew existed.

Astrophysicists, YouTubers, Influencers, Data Scientists, App Developers, Wind Turbine Technicians, Digital Marketers, Environmental Technologists and Environmental Engineers to name a few - oh the vast opportunities they have to look forward to.

Oh how we all long to do the Long Walk again. A tradition rocked by Covid-19, we will relive these moments in time to come.

The Long Walk is so much more than the distance we walk. The Long Walk is about grit and determination, strength of character, facing challenges and over-coming these, building friendships, comaraderie, esprit de corps, helping others and cheering others on, celebrating victories together, supporting others through disappointment and developing servant leaders. The Long Walk symbolises everything Thomas More College stands for.

Take a moment to reminisce over the happy Long Walk memories of 2019.

Our country has suffered the loss of King of the Zulu’s, iNkosi Zwelithini Zulu from kwaNongoma;who became king after the death of his father King Cyprian Bhekizulu in 1968.  When a Zulu King “bows” the Zulu nation mourns his death either by suspending certain traditional activities or wearing a traditional item that symbolizes or shows respect to the late King and royal family.
As a school that believes in cultural diversity, we honoured the king, by celebrating differences, creating a culture of inclusion and acceptance among students and our greater school community.
With the late King “planted” at midnight last night, we extended a voluntary invitation 
to the students and staff to join us in mourning, respecting and remembering the 
King.
Our Zulu family members were able to come to school in their isiZulu traditional clothing or wearing a traditional head band. Our non-Zulu children and staff also honoured the King by wearing a black or white ribbon, as a sign of mourning and respect.Image attachment

Not an uncommon sight in Durban and surrounds. Wishing you all the best swimming season.

What a good choice. They obviously were inspired by what we have on offer and know we respect all no matter how different 👏

Wait till Cafe de More opens again... then they will be even happier with their choice 😉

And the Woolly-necked Stork family have also decided they like TMC 😍

We have seen them bringing traffic to a stop - too cute 😍

They even took part in the gala...too cute!

Our swimming buddies 🦆🦆

Love Egyptian geese ❤️

Soooooo special x

Love it!!!
