After serving on the school's board for 12 years, the last 3 of them as Chairperson, Ms Gugu Khumalo has handed over this important role to Ms Zama Mkosi. This is Ms Khumalo's farewell as chair, and her welcome to the new chair.
The 2022 At Home was a celebration of our current matrics who, despite the many challenges of the past few years, have done us proud academically and in many other ways. It was also an opportunity to reflect on an important aspect of Inanda history, the role of the Power of 10.
Tragically our chapel and chapel hall were gutted by a fire. No children or staff were injured. The fire, which broke out at 07:17 on 27 May 2021, was contained, only affecting the seminary’s chapel and chapel hall which are on the periphery of the school’s property. The bricks and structure of these buildings remain completely intact, but the wooden rafters, beams, roof and furniture were entirely destroyed.
The final term of the year is always busy, with the main event being the annual At Home celebration. Thereafter, it is time to start letting go of the matrics as they start writing their last ever school exams. But there's always time to fit in a few other events and celebrations before the year draws to a close.
Term 3 has been packed with many challenging and exciting events. Our students have celebrated, developed and excelled in many areas. Our staff have worked hard to keep making Inanda the special place it is. Many visitors have come and experienced our campus and the exceptional people who live and work here. And we have a new principal.
Term 2 is always a busy term at Inanda. In the first half of the term, the houses battle it out for the ultimate Inter-house title in various events, and then there are the exams at the end of the term. Some highlights are as follows...
The key event in Term 1 was undoubtedly the 150th Birthday. However, there were many other exciting events which took place. The year started off with the annual Summit for the staff. Notably, there were also the Matric Dance and the Swimming Gala.
