A Few of our Traditions
As a new Gr. 8 student, your new high school life begins with a few events. Apart from orientation and the “groentjiekonsert” there is the let go of your “I can’t” Balloon seremony, where you walk away as a Moorie Winner. The next event is the very special Bell ringing seremony symbolising your new start as a high school student.
In matric you will get another chance to ring the bell, as symbol of the end of your high school career and start of a bright future.
In 1978 Mr. Herman Bester started the tradition of hosting a Bicycle Tour.
In 2008 the 30th successful bicycle tour were held. Due to circumstances, this tradition has been aborted, but will always remain part of many Moorie memories.
Christmas Carols & Tree of Rememberance
In 1993 one of our students, Pieter du Toit, died during a bicycle tour and so the Christmas Carols originated. Together with this tradition, Mrs. Bets Coetzee who also lost her daughter, Lara, in 1990, the Tree of Rememberance became a very special event where every Moorie student and staff member could take the time and remember their loved ones who is now in heaven.
