Mafaesa Rocks! It’s a fact. Our school is a source of wisdom and inspiration. Both our educators and learners are talented and skilled in many areas especially in performing arts, that is why we say, Mafaesa has got Talent. We spice Arts and Culture and Dramatic Arts learning areas in a more practical and inspiring way. ‘Mafaesa Has Got Talent’ is a show where learners

show their talent in performing arts. The audience will be treated with solo artists and groups will clash on stage with poetry , dance, singing, instrumentals and comedy from Round One winners..

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK: THE WILL TO EXCEL Our attitude will determine the extent to which we shall achieve excellence. Those who persistently forge ahead in the interest of doing better refuse, against all odds, to allow anything to overshadow progress being made. They continuously maintain the momentum and will not let any developments (positive or negative) derail them from the cause of eminently good quality. Although conditions may not always be favourable (personally and/ or situationally), they are inclined to maintain a course of being efficacious, Jutting with confidence on a path to shape their future and that of the institution. The major thrust to the realisation of potential for greatness is to put an agreeable measure of success at the center of attaining excellence. At the core of our pursuit is the realisation that our values are a grand launch pad towards success. According to our international icon, Nelson Mandela "values commit us to a continued walk". Keep on keeping on. I. Setlhodi—Mohapi

Our educators sacrifice their extra time and give us extra morning, afternoon and weekend lessons so that we have a bright future. ‘Obstacles and problems we meet have a solution’ by Maine Puseletso & Farasane Euginia


Institutions that thrive seek a balanced approach to achieving excellence. They are aware of the intricate aspects (regardless of how miniscule they may be) that form a critical component for achieving excellence. To that end, they brand themselves accordingly. The SGB is proud to announce the initiation of project and programmes ambassadors within the school. All SGB and management programmes will have ambassadors who will market these programmes and amass the necessary support. The SGB is pleased pleased to announce the zero tolerance ambassadors who will assist the RCL, teachers and school management with identifying and eliminating untoward conduct (violation of the code of conduct) around the school. These ambassadors will be our discipline brand. We further announce the intent to launch branding material that will enable us to achieve 'nil nici optimum' (nothing but the best). Once we have the buy in from all stakeholders, the criteria for project/ programme ambassadors will be unvailed. We look forward to a grand S.G. Mafaesa face lift. Join us in branding our school by being the brand within. From The SGB’s Desk

What I like about our drama club is that there is no grade 8, 9 or 10. We are all equal artists on stage and we work as a family.

POETRY Troubles by Nleluheni Livhali 9D


We have entered a night

Friends become enemies.

What is love?

To tell our tale.

Men become women

Its unknown

We listen to words wisdom.

Pain stings like death

Yet we cant forget it.

Children scream and shout

It tears happiness apart

Its greater than all

For equality in education

Troubles never end.

And too small for them all.

Blood flows in the streets of Soweto

The sorrow

It flows beautifully like a river

The wounds are open

The Sadness

And brings a smile to the sad world

Tears flow

The disgrace

Love heals broken hearts.

The inner silence speaks

The disagreements

Love has no room

The truth must be spoken

The double pain

for breaking promises.

Secrets must be revealed.

Trees fall for no reason

Love forgives and forgets.

Amandla, is the slogan.

Dogs keep on barking.

Love is blind but sees the heart.
