RGJS Celebrates 130 with Junior School Learners

On Friday 2nd February, Rustenburg Girls’ Junior School celebrated its 130th Birthday with Junior school learners. The day started with an assembly where Mrs. Petersen launched and explained the theme – The History of the 130 years and showed the Rusty bugs some uniform items, magazines and photos from the past. Mrs. Lexi Slabbert, a past teacher, was the fabulous guest speaker who shared some insight into the teaching days in the 1970s – no WiFi, Internet, cellphones and no stiletto heels in the hall!

Catherine Pike (former Rustybug who is now also a teacher at RGJS) taught the learners, staff and special guests the 130 Theme Song which is a collaboration of the Junior Schools’ theme songs from the past few years and which celebrates everything special about being a Rustybug.

The learners enjoyed a Bug Buddy Teddy Bears’ Picnic and afterwards, they created some beautiful wind chimes out of recycled materials. They ended the day dancing away to their favourite songs.
