Hermanus Gala Memes!

Alhoewel die Hermanus-swemtoer 'n paar weke gelede was (3 Februarie 2017), is daar steeds heelwat noemenswaardige foto's wat met die skool gedeel moet word. Hier volg die bestes:

Ek het by 'n paar van ons onderwysers wat getroud is om gegaan om 'n bietjie te hoor hoe goed hulle werklik hulle wederhelftes ken…Wel, dit en natuurlik ook sodat ons as leerders hulle n bietjie beter kan leer ken. 

Dit het so gewerk: ek het n lys vrae opgestel om uit te vind wat die juffrouens se gunsteling goed is of haar voorkeure en dan dieselfde vrae vir die menere gevra en dan hulle antwoorde bietjie vergelyk.

Sometimes your day just turns on its head

We all have that one day when everything goes left instead of right. Days can turn into nightmares in seconds. So here are a few nightmare scenarios that can hit you. 

  1. When you forget your best friend's balloons at home and it's their birthday.
  2. When you get home from a long day at school and you realise you left some of your books in your locker.
  3. When you lose the key to your locker.
  4. When your blue file isn't signed.
  5. When you spend your entire afternoon doing homework but you forget your books at home.
  6. You speak to Mr. Van Niekerk in Afrikaans during an English period. 
  7. When you forgot about a test.
  8. When you have to chew bubblegum from miss Nel's "potjie."
  9. When they announce that there will be no register but you still have homework due first period. 
  10. When you find out you are doing unprepared oral today.
  11. When you are doing a group project but your friends dropped you.
  12. Mondays

Awareness to the Gents:

By Lona Sukani

Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and care, which you all (hopefully) know. It could be platonic love between friends, family love from child to parent or romantic love between partners. Even if it is a single-day celebration, or in this case an ‘extended week’ celebration, many people pull out all the stops, [such as requesting songs for their ‘sweethearts’ from the Acapella Group, buying roses for their friends or sweethearts etc.], to share this special week in numerous ways. 

Poetry has been exchanged between lovers since the Middle Ages. For centuries, lovers scribbled love notes to one another on the Day of Saint Valentine. In the nineteenth century, with the establishment of a postal service, more and more ‘hearts-and-flowers’ wishes were sent. Even as schoolchildren we send Valentines. Today, with the aid of technology, over a billion cards are sent out on Valentine’s Day  around the world with sweet Valentine’s Day wishes. 


Don't think a change, be the change!

Neolea is the German word for youth. Neolea is a Worcester youth committe consisting of the youth for the youth.  Its main aim is to empower the youth and decrease crime amongst the youth.

Weren't they at the Olympics before?

Worcester Gimnasium het weer groot golwe gemaak op 9 Februarie by Groenpunt met die jaarlikse interskole atletiekbyeenkoms. Hul uitmuntende Gimmiegees en ongelooflike prestasies het (soos gewoonlik) gesorg vir 'n opwindende en witwarm atmosfeer.

It was an eventful day indeed, and though it has passed already, it was not forgotten.
Amber Beukes and Enrique Wilson caught up with some of the top athletes to find out how their day went. Hier volg kort onderhoude met ons top atlete van die dag:

Warning: The content of this post might shock some of the readers, as you need some knowledge of athletics. Reader discretion is advised. 

Foreward: There is also a tear-jerking confession from a proud parent at the end, so get your tissues ready!

Baby Bosvarke's First Month

A month...four and a half weeks, 31 days, 744 hours, 44640 minutes, and 2678400 seconds (sorry Kyle). A month since the nervous yet excited, the bewildered yet enthusiastic, the expectant yet apprehensive grade 8's had entered the Worcester Gymnasium Legacy.

The could-be-holiday open day, and the one-of-a-kind grade 8 camp certainly 'cited the Groentjies up. Were their expectations met? Have they strived to fulfill their baby-Gimmie potential? Did they forget their red bands? Were they crushed by a test on Valentine's day?

What was their experience this first 2678400 seconds of their high-school career?

Atletiek Interskole Memes

Op Donderdag 9 Februarie het Worcester Gimnasium aan die jaarlikse Interskole Atletiek deelgeneem en weggestap met die meeste van die bekers. Tussen die gejuig en gehardloop van die dag, is daar 'n paar interessante foto's van die leerders geneem. Ons kreatiewe span het koppe bymekaar gesit en memes van diƩ foto's gemaak.


'n Draaiende maag, kloppende hart en die gevoel van opgewondenheid gemeng met senuweeagtigheid...

Al hierdie simptome kan net een ding beteken - daar is liefde in die lug! Met Valentynsweek om die draai word al hoe meer mense aangesteek deur hierdie (ongeneesbare) siekte. The Circum therefore thought it a good idea to see what the RCL has up their sleeve for this highly anticipated week.

“Change is inevitable. Why hold on to what you have to let go of?” – JheneAiko.

Change is inevitable, yes, but the matrics of mx ’17 are holding on for dear life to every moment. Ever since the first day of the school year we have been milking every experience being a matric has to offer, riding every wave because it’s our last and making a storm while we're at it.

The swimming gala was by no means different...

We asked. You answered.

We have officially asked the question most Gimmies answer every day, anyway. Who is the most fashionable teacher? Shallow, right? Well, we asked and you answered nevertheless.

New Teachers On the Gim Block

by Amber Beukes and Khanya Fadana

We have finally managed to remember the names of "Um, she's the new teacher, man. Yeah, the pretty one in room 18" and "She's the new teacher with the colourful and flamboyant skirts."

They've come to Bosvark Square to stay. We just had to find out what our rookies were all about.

The Worst Way to Valentine

With Valentine’s Day coming up, the Circum asked a few people for their opinions on certain topics, including girls asking guys out, pick-up lines and more. There was a variety of responses. Keep reading!

1. Do you think the guy, girl or both should pay for the tickets to the Valentine’s Ball?

Siphe Giba:  It’s fine if he wants to split the money. If he wants to be a gentleman and pay for both tickets, that’s fine too. But girls want equality and all that stuff, so the tickets' price should be shared.
