SACEE PRETORIA BRANCH- 2018

CREATIVE WRITING COMPETITIONS

The Committee of the Pretoria Branch of SACEE would like to thank all schools and learners who took part in the 2018 Creative Writing Competition. Without your support and interest it would not possible to hold such an exciting event.

A special word of thanks to Mrs Harris (Principal) and the staff of Lynnwood Ridge Primary School, for hosting the wonderful prize-giving function held on the 21st September 2018.

THANK YOU.

We look forward to next year’s competition and more wonderful entries.


Chairperson’s Report 2018

“Education begins the moment we see children as innately wise and capable beings. Only then can we play along in their world.”

As newly appointed Chairperson, I can only say that it has been an honour and a privilege to be nominated into this position. I have been able to learn so much from Sheila Naidoo, our outgoing Chairperson and that has inspired me to keep the SACEE flame burning strong.

The willingness of our committee to volunteer their time and expertise to this worthy project expresses how deep our love for the English language extends. As always, it was an absolute treat to read the various poems and prose written by the children.

I would like to sincerely thank Sheila Naidoo and Lindsey Godfrey for their invaluable contribution to this council. These ladies have offered more than 10 years’ experience to SACEE and they have helped the Pretoria branch to grow to what it is now, ladies we salute you.

I would then also like to welcome two new members to our SACEE family, Glenda Stanford, the co-ordinator for the high schools and Monique Enslin, the co-ordinator for the primary schools. We are delighted to have you ladies as part of our team.

Thus, I conclude with a sincere thanks to all involved in another fantastic year and publication. A special word of thanks must be given to our learners, their teachers and parents who so eagerly support our endeavours to bring out the best in our children.
