2016 Prize Giving – Grades 8-11

On Tuesday, 17 January 2017, Wynberg hosted its annual prize giving. The hall was filled with excited Wynberg Girls and even more excited Wynberg parents who were in attendance as their daughters took home certificates and trophies. So many girls received certificates for their final Term 4 exams of 2016 and many received special awards. We congratulate those girls who excelled in their academic, culture, service or sport and consequently received their well-deserved awards!

As the prize giving is a night of achievement, our guest speaker for the night was Adv. Pranisha Maharaj Pillay – a past Wynberg girl who has achieved great things in her field of study. Mrs Maharaj Pillay spoke of her journey as an Indian woman studying and working in law. Her speech was powerful and honest. She cited some of her favourite moments and quotes from her days at Wynberg and encouraged all in attendance to reach for their dreams and goals no matter how impossible they seem. It was truly an honour to have Mrs Maharaj Pillay as our guest speaker and we thanked her for her attendance.

As the night closed, all the girls left with their awards and kept in mind the words of our guest speaker. After a very successful prize giving, it is certain that 2017 will be a great year for Wynberg.
