 Voluntary Testing and Counselling

Next Wednesday, November 5th, “New Start” will visit WK for Voluntary HIV Testing and counselling which will be available to the whole community. Students under 16 need signed consent from parents and guardians.

Blood Donation

The Swaziland National Blood Transfusion Service will be at school on Friday November 7th from 8:30 to 2:30 doing a blood drive. We would like to help them at this time of the year to boost their bank as often the blood bank runs dry during the festive season. They will be in the Commserve room and all students over the age of 16 are encouraged to donate blood. We welcome any parents who would like to donate as well.

IB Day

The IB1s finished their year-end exams yesterday and today they are having an IB Day, a student driven project to discuss issues pertinent to them. This day is organized by the SRC body and allows them to relax and discuss issues after their exams.

IB Pastoral Day

The IB Pastoral Day is about risky behavior and the challenges faced during adolescence and young adulthood. The students will engage in a series of participatory workshops on Tuesday, November 4th.
