In our Grade 6 Integrated Learning lessons our pupils have been learning about masks worn throughout history, from Egyptian and African to Italian - whether decorative, sporting, protective or religious. Their theme, 'The Masks We Wear'.

At the end of their learning experience, pupils were tasked with creating a mask that best depicted themselves, but with a twist. Not only did we ask to see the aspects of their identity that they would present to others (on the outside), but also the aspects that they might choose to keep to themselves (on the inside).

This was a wonderfully creative way in which each child had the opportunity to learn a little bit more about themselves.

Non-Newtonian Fluids are always fun. Our Grade 4s are enjoying making ooblek in their ILT lessons, discovering how viscosity can change when under force to either more liquid or more solid.

Superb learning and such fun combined. What a winner๐Ÿ‘Œ

Made this granny's mind boggle yesterday. Was such fun.

Looks so much fun

It was such a fun lesson!!!!

Art is naturally linked to creativity, an attribute that is increasingly being touted as one of the most important factors for the success of individuals, organisations, and cultures.

The truth is that art is vital, if somewhat intangible, and that if children engage in hands-on art activities, they learn much better in all disciplines.

Our Senior Primary pupils enjoy their weekly lessons with Mrs Purdon who exposes them to line, light & value, colour, texture, shape & volume, time & motion, compositional balance, rhythm, proportion and scale, linear, 2 and 3 dimensional perspective as well as the inclusion of all 5 senses.

Itโ€™s not what you look at that matters, itโ€™s what you see.

A number of Grade 10 learners at schools around the country had the option of choosing Marine Sciences as a school subject this year.

The curriculum covers the following four strands, Oceanography, Marine Biology, Ecology and Human impacts on the ocean.
Dr Gary Robson is the Marine Sciences node coordinator for Grade 10 pupils from several DBE and IEB schools within KZN.

The uShaka Sea World Education Centre is now offering a bespoke course to Grade 10 pupils who are taking Marine Sciences this year.

If you have or know of a learner taking Marine Sciences and would like them to join one of these courses, please contact Dr Robson for more information. You are welcome to contact Dr Robson on his email : grobson@thomasmore.co.za or landline : 031 764 8640.

We hope to continue this partnership and provide further practical courses for Grade 11 and 12 over the next two years.

Some of our best childhood memories feature bikes as perfect companions for all of our adventures.

Along with a healthy diet, cycling helps to strengthen children's bodies by reinforcing their muscles and bone structure. On a motor-skill level, it improves coordination, balance and concentration. As children learn to ride and handle the bike, accomplishing more and more small goals, their self-esteem and confidence grows.

We have thoroughly enjoyed watching the Grade 00 and 0 children pedal profusely across Pickering field this week doing their Tour de More. Some have mastered the art in a matter of minutes, while others have needed a little extra assistance from our Track and Trail helpers and our Pre-Primary Teachers. With a few pushes and gentle steers, our children quickly grow in confidence right in front of our eyes. We even had Mrs Breedt join our Grade 0s for a cycle which drew great excitement today.

Over riding with them many years ago. Still a memory I treasure

Ah… Tour de More… such a fun TMC tradition.

They’re having a blast!

Our Grade 1s are learning about long 'a' sounds and how to use the magic 'e'. In small groups the children each decorated their cupcakes with a letter then joined their cakes together to spell words. Who doesn't love a little bit of cupcake scrabble. ... See MoreSee Less

I experienced an overwhelming surge of excitement when greeting our children on campus this past Monday morning. I knew I was excited to return to campus, but I have never experienced the level of intense excitement and joy as I did this past Monday whilst greeting our children. I was actually quite taken aback by this emotional experience, and have spent the week trying to understand it.
I will not share the range of thought processes I undertook in my attempt to understand my emotional surge; however, I did come to understand its source:
I belong.
Our staff and our pupils are my people beyond the safety and sanctity of my family. This is a thriving and dynamic and diverse community in which I belong. The comfort, security and motivation imbued within me is boundless in this sense of belonging. Despite the deluge of challenges coming our way, there is strength to persevere and to โ€œGo Forwardโ€, as Mr Drew constantly reminds us, when we do so together.
And so, as we engage deeply with this second semester, may we do so knowing that we do so together, believing in our collective capacity to uphold one another and to bring strength and hope to those who need it most.

I love this.๐Ÿ’œ

58 Grade 11โ€™s headed off to the Karkloof at the end of the 2nd Term to participate in the annual "Quest". Hiking, exploring Zulu culture, spending a day in solitude, working as a labourer and camping were some of the activities this lucky group got to experience. The weather was chilly at night with many fires being made and the days adventures being regaled. The vistas from the top of mount Gilboa and the views of the sun setting and rising in one of the most beautiful spots in the province made for some unforgettable moments. The camaraderie new friendships and bonding amongst the pupils as always was the highlight. Learning to lead and trusting your group proved demanding but in the process each person learnt more about themselves. If you know yourself well you can lead others and this certainly became true for all the pupils on this amazing Camp. The mantra so often shouted by the camp medic will live with us foreverโ€ฆ..โ€ARE YOU ALIVE, AWAKE, ALERT AND ENTHUSIASTIC?โ€ After Quest 2021 we all wereโ€ฆ. ... See MoreSee Less

Introducing the Ntuli brothers, Sihle and Nqobile.

We are exceptionally proud of this dynamic duo who are on their Olympics Journey with the SA Mens Hockey Team. Both Bili and Sihle attended TMC. Sihle Matriculated from TMC in 2007, while Bili attended TMC in his Primary School years where his love for hockey developed. Bili then joined the Kearsney fold where he matriculated in 2014.

Both boys have gone from strength to strength in the Hockey arena. Bili with 60 caps under his belt for South Africa and Sihle currently the Head Coach at Tuks and the SA U21 Men's Head Coach and the Assistant Coach for the Men's Hockey team at the Olympics.

Our SA Men's Team have thus far played 2 games at the Olympics, their first against Great Britain, sadly losing 3 -1 and 2nd against the Netherlands, the top team in the world - SA lost 5 - 3, although a cracker of a game where SA were leading 3 - 0 in the early stages.

Their mum, Carol Mbili (our very own Zulu teacher and current longest serving member of staff) cannot be prouder of her phenomenal boys, and so are we!

We wish our boys the best of luck as they face Belgium today (now ranked 1st in the world by the FIH).

Congratulations to Luke Rall (Grade 10) who competed in the KZN Golf Championships at San Lameer on 3 July.  Not only is this an outstanding achievement on its own, but Luke decided to add just a little bit extra by scoring a Hole-in-One on the 16th hole while he was at it!  Well done Luke, you can be very proud of yourself, as we are!
