GOODBYE TO MRS ROSSEAU
A FOND FAREWELL!
On Friday the 21st of May we said farewell to our Marketing Manager Mr. Ronald Olckers. As Head of Marketing he was instrumental in the branding of the school campus and advertising the school in various publications. He also organised the Open Days and the visits to our feeder schools. He was very involved in sponsorships and secured the Canterbury Clothing sponsorship recently for the school. Mr. Olckers really embodied the values of the school and lived them out to the full everyday. He would always welcome visitors to the school with enthusiasm and a positive energy. He was a great listener and often provided important support to the staff at Fairmont. His contribution was never limited to his title and portfolio. Mr. Olckers has dedicated a lot of his time to Fairmont Cricket and Fairmont Rugby as well. He was passionate about forging life-long memories and bonds with the learners from Fairmont. He believed in the holistic development of the learners and used his coaching platform to share his valuable insight, energy and experience. As we say farewell to Mr. Olckers we are extremely grateful to have had him as part of the staff complement at Fairmont High School. We would like to wish him and his family all the best for his new endeavours.
GREEN IS FOR CEREBRAL PALSY DAY
Last week Wednesday the 25th of March, a call went out amongst staff to wear green in support of Cerebral Palsy awareness and in support of one our teachers and moms whose little boy, Markus, has cerebral palsy. This is the email Mrs Du Plessis sent staff in thanks for their support. We hope that in posting this we are helping to spread the word about support for children with Cerebral Palsy.

We bid a very fond farewell to Mrs Alta Behrendt who taught at FHS for 18 years! Mrs Sarisha Du Plessis wrote the following poem in honour of Mr Behrendt:
Uiteindelik breek jou rustyd aan
Die einde van 'n onvergeetlike loopbaan
Deur die jare het iy gebak en brou,
Vriendskappe gebou wat vir ewig sal hou
Nou is dit tyd vir 'n nuwe hoofstuk
Waar jy in die swembad kan lê en uit mooi glase sluk
Ons gaan jou grappies en marmite scones só baie mis
Maar weet jou huis se deur staan altyd oop, dis gewis.
