FROM THE DESK OF THE DEPUTY HEAD ACADEMICS -
MR RUIZ-MESA

I don’t know if it is fate or a blessing in disguise but my blog seems to always be “strategically” placed just before the final exams. It is difficult to write to this audience at such a crucial time
and not fall into the arms of repetition, but the timing calls for it so here goes.

It’s final exam time! This phrase can strike fear in the heart of even the most confident student. Exams can be a source of panic and anxiety regardless of knowledge and preparation. There are
extensive studies and research into this topic and plenty of experts who claim they have a “secret recipe” to ace your exams.

Valediction Address

I am glad to have the opportunity to speak to you this evening as we honor your efforts of the last 5 years. Our slogan for the year was Woke, We only know excellence!

It reminds me of a movie called Groundhog Day. This movie did release in 1993 so some of you may have not seen it yet. Phil Connors is an arrogant, egotistical Pittsburgh weatherman
sent to Punxsutawney, Pa., to cover the town's annual rodent-based celebration of springtime prognostication.

Beaulieu College Newsletter - 4 October 2019

From the desk of Mrs Prinsloo - Head of Admin & Planning

We have started the third and final school term of 2019 with a “spring” in our step. With a lot of checklists and syllabus topics to complete before the November examinations start, we have all hit the ground running. With many events happening this term, from Heritage day to the upcoming Matric Valediction, life seems to be rushing past us and so I have used the saying “Life is a journey enjoy the ride” many times in my classroom over the past two weeks. Which led me to search for some articles with a similar heading. I stumbled across a podcast written by Karen Noé who is a renowned spiritual counsellor, and healer with a two-year waiting list.

From the Senior Deputy Head's Desk - Mr Gary Kenyon

We are 10 days into the last third of our academic year, with the final term, the most important one for our matrics, ahead of us.

I had the pleasure of attending the Deputies Head Conference at Waterkloof House Preparatory School along with Mr Ruiz-Mesa. The theme of the conference was "Peace by Piece". We were challenged and inspired by a host of guest speakers and workshops offering sage advice on providing strong, ethical leadership in these challenging times. It is exciting to return to our individual schools and share our revised way of thinking with our executive teams.

Beaulieu College Newsletter - 28 June 2019

From the desk of Mr Ruiz-Mesa, Deputy Head: Academics

There are so many things that I admire about our teachers. They are on the “front line” every day with their students, working patiently and tirelessly to do what is best for their pupils. I have no idea what I would do without these inspiring, caring individuals! They are the reason I have dedicated my blog to the exceptional group of teachers we have at Beaulieu College. Thank you so much for everything you do, and for everything you bring to the school. I am really lucky to be working with all of you!

Being a teacher is something for which you must have a passion. It is more than just a job; rather, it is who you are. It can be both rewarding and frustrating. There will be times when you will wonder why on earth you chose this profession, and there will be many more times you realise there is nothing else in the world you would rather do. It is a wondrous feeling to know you have the capacity to influence so many young people who are our future.
