Ms. Marais hosted an assembly directed at the Grade 9's self-image. The learners were presented with surprising statistics about students' self-worth, for example that 4 out of 5 teenage girls struggle with low self-esteem.
The pupils had been asked to bring their cellphones to assembly, which had confused them greatly and had left them anxiously awaiting the outcome. When they were asked to take-out their phones, open their Selfie cameras and then have to say, “Good Morning, Gorgeous! How did you sleep?” they were apprehensive but ended up enjoying it.
The assembly was concluded with a sing-along to This Is Me from the hit movie The Greatest Showman.
