The Library's service is slowing down as the girls are getting ready for final exams and the books are being returned to be on the shelves for the annual stocktaking. The results of the Top Readers for 2019 were announced on 14 October, and we congratulate these girls for making such good use of our collection and enjoying the privilege of reading so much: Jesse Mutombo in Grade 8 read 51 books, Kego Kau in Grade 9 read 73 books, Carol Shoniwa in Grade 10 read 57 books, and Shekinah Kaninda in Grade 11 read 11 books.
We issued over 2300 books this year, and the service runs smoothly thanks to our friendly and reliable Library monitors. On the team for 2019 were Chevandré Potts, Megan Dinwoodie, Oluchi Benjamin, Shekinah Kaninda, Carol Shoniwa, Amina Dossa, Reneilwe Mathabathe and Neo Molekwa. The Matrics were Buhle Mgwena, Deveney van Rooi, Prudence Mbokota, Amber Beeforth, Mathilda Thokoane, Vauna Naidoo and Tumi Malefo. As we said goodbye to them, wishing them well for the future, Gao Mahlakoana, Suzie Holliday, Kego Kau, Ruva Chinamora, Nkateko Mkhonto, Nime Soga and Malaika Kamangu joined us for 2020.
