Music has the power to lift our spirits and gives us the courage to face the obstacles in our way. Enjoy the beautiful video our Glee group put together, making music together even while apart. We will continue to make music wherever we are!

One of our Grade 7 students, Mahdiyyah Wadee, has continued to feed her passion for birding, even during lockdown. She has paid careful attention to ‘feathered friends’ visiting her garden and flying overhead and recently captured these magnificent photographs! Mahdiyyah is excited to share that the Crested Barbets have flown back to Houghton Gardens this week. She also spotted the likes of the Red Ringed Parakeets, Grey Louries and Grey Herons.
