- GEOGRAPHY/ TOURISM TRIP (05 – 07 MAY 2023)
Our grade 12 Geography and Tourism learners embarked on a very successful and vibrant 3-day outdoor learning exploration camp at Yakol Adventures in Modimolle. Sir Fredy expressed his satisfaction in a few words; Learners grasp concepts much easier by seeing them in real life. They came into close contact with nature, exploring river processes in the veld and studying different rock formations on the mountainside.
In Geography, most Geomorphology aspects – fluvial processes and landforms were the main areas of focus. Learners went on a hike up to the head of the valley flanked by two long stretching ridges and down up to the dam. In tourism, notably, there was a presentation by the facilitators, Mr Rubin and Mr Thompson, on responsible and sustainable tourism as well as on entrepreneurial opportunities in the tourism sector.
On Saturday evening, learners enjoyed a presentation by Mr Rubin on Astronomical aspects (the Southern Cross and the False Cross). Learners also had fun through team-building activities (Mission Impossible and Shooting Range). Appreciation goes to the two teachers, Sir Fredy and Ma’am Tebogo sacrificed their time to organise and accompany these learners on this excursion.
- We explore as we learn at Eagle’s Nest
Our Grade 10 learners had the opportunity to enjoy a 3-day trip (3-5 May) at Silver Cloud Game Lodge and Conference Centre in Bela-Bela. The objective of this outdoor camp was to refine their leadership skills through fun-filled activities in the veld. The Vice Principal-High School, Sir Isaac had this to say; “Our focus is teambuilding, spiritual formation and communication. These aspects have proved to be key to effective leadership”
Fifty-nine learners participated in various activities which included spider web, ball balance, communication train, blind folder and water sport. The most electrifying was the obstacle course which challenged most learners to explore out of their comfort zone. Praise God all of them managed to navigate their way throughout and great was the excitement.
We would like to appreciate the 5 teachers who accompanied these learners on this trip; Sir Abraham, Sir Mike, Sir Moses, Ma’am Kwena and Linkie.

- EAGLES MATRICS FLY HIGH WITH 43BDs
There is joy and jubilation in the Nest as we celebrate our 2022 IEB matric results. 43 learners passed with BD entry qualification while 4 scored a diploma entry-level qualification. This class of 2023 achieved 30 distinctions while the bulk of marks are in level 6 (Bs). An overall 96,07% was achieved. This is yet another milestone, a great achievement indeed especially considering the obstacles that this group had to endure. The impact of Covid-19 and related lockdown restrictions impacted the smooth delivery of curriculum in their FET phase. “Now I can pursue my dream in Chemical Engineering,” said Karabo Ndou with a sigh of relief. Her other options are Bio-Chemistry and Environmental Science of which she has acceptance letters from several universities including UP.
Results at a glance:
43 passed with a bachelor’s Degree entry level
30 Distinctions achieved
4 passed with Diploma entry level
2 passed with Higher certificate entry level
66 level 6 (Bs) marks

- The Cross-Country team finishes the race.
On the 23rd of July, learners from Eagles Nest Christian School Intermediate phase took part in a cross-country competition at Groblersdal. It was a good experience where the learners competed against well-vetted clubs and schools. It was a tough experience for most, but all managed to finish the race. It was clear to see that the learners enjoyed themselves and found the experience to be enjoyable. With more training and fitness, these learners will do very well in cross-country.
- The Eagles soar high again in Maths Horizon.
In my previous article, I cited that we eagerly awaited the 2022 edition of the Horizon Maths Competition results. I’m humbled to inform you that the Eagles were able to once again soar high.
Trust me, we are a people helped by God. Notwithstanding the competitiveness of this Competition, our learners came up tops. The results in question are the provincial top 50. It was an emotional moment to receive an invitation indicating that 11 of our learners were in the top 50. The most exciting part was that 4 of our learners were in the top 10.
This is how the Eagles were spread in the top 50.
Neo Mosomne 4; Alexandra Mmethie 7; Tshilidzi Muvhango 9; Princess Chiendamunyama 10; Tinotenda Jaka 11; Pheladi Mogajane 16; Yididieya Semu 30; Bontle Mashamaite 35; Rukudzo Maromani 38; Ashley Chitimera 47; Prosperity Mkhabele 50. These learners received certificates, medals, headphones and phones as prizes.
To add the cherry on top, the school received a trophy for best-improving school. To this, we are forever grateful.
Nkosana Nkala (Maths Olympiad facilitator)
As a school, we would like to thank Sir Nkosana for his tireless effort to assist our learners to achieve these results. Well done to all who participated!
- Chess News
Intermediate phase learners proudly represented Eagles Nest at the Limpopo district qualifiers at Pietersburg Laerskool on the 30th of July. We were able to send 4 teams, two teams in each of the under-11 and under-13 categories. We were sad to see a low turnout of our Under 13 players, yet the learners who were present put up a great fight. The under 13 B team and the under 11 A team both gained an overall fourth place in their respective categories, while the under 11 B team took an overall second position for their category. We are proud of our players and congratulate them on their wonderful achievements.
We have also continued to participate at the Capricorn district tournament this term, where each player builds their own rating. The Limpopo team was announced at the last event held at Northern Academy on 27 August. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Tumelo for holding the 12th position in Limpopo Province for the under-12 age group. This means that he is the first reserve for the provincial team. Well done Tumelo!
On the 18th of August, Eagles Nest Christian School Intermediate phase hosted the Myngenoegen debating league tournament. Three debating teams from Eagles Nest took part, competing against Mitchell House, PEPPS, MEPS and Lord Milner. This competition allowed learners to argue points in a well-controlled environment. It was great to see good logical thinking taking place. Many learners were nervous and this caused them to sometimes make slight errors when speaking. One of the great things in debating is being able to communicate clearly, convincingly and logically regardless of one’s personal view on the topic or how nervous one is. Eagles Nest Christian School did not win this time, but they learnt a few things that will help them in the next competition. At the same time, we would like to congratulate Neo Mosomane for being named the best overall speaker of the day. It is exciting to see how these learners improve their speaking ability.
- Bible Olympiad
This September, Eagle’s Nest hosted the long-awaited Bible Olympiad. Four schools attended, participating in their Foundation Phase and Intermediate Phase.
As a Foundation Phase, we are very proud of our learners and their hard work preparing for the different sections.
Art, Scripture verses, poems and dramas made our day colourful.
- Fun in Grade 1 – by Chane Kruger
Grade 1 is a fun time where kids learn many new things and explore their individual talents and creativity.
Learners loved learning all about pets and plants this quarter and what is a better way for learners to express their creativity than through a Creative Arts Project.
Learners had the opportunity to make their choice of clay sculptures and they were left to dry. These sculptures were then used to make their own Chia Pets which they took home to take care of.
- Lethaba Lodge Educational Tour – by Chane Kruger
The trip to Lethaba Lodge was just as amazing as the actual visit. Travelling through Magoebaskloof to Tzaneen was an experience that left the learners in awe. The views were breathtaking and a true reflection of how creative God is.
There were many animals to see and learn about at Lethaba Lodge. The learners loved walking around and listening and entreating with the tour guides. They saw lions and tigers, monkeys and lemurs, parrots and iguanas and so many more.
On the game drive, learners could see many antelope and wild animals, even a big group of hippos (a bloat) up close as they lazily lay in the mud.
The Learners also enjoyed running free through the playground and having fun with the variety of obstacles, jungle gyms and zip lines. It truly was a fun and educational experience and we cannot wait to go back.
- Ballet @ Eagles Nest
This year we have also given extra space to ballet as a club in our Pre- School. Even Sir Mac and Teacher Freda Joined in one morning to share in the joy! It’s a lot of little girl’s dreams that came true. Building their coordination, mental strength, balance, and discipline it further strengthens their muscles and improves their flexibility.
- EAGLET’S CELEBRATE: 10 YEARS
As this year draw to a close, it draws close to the mark of ten years that has passed since we started the Pre-School in 2012. We therefor decided to focus on our growth the past ten years. We celebrate our Lord’s grace and joy that has left us standing in awe.
The start was humble with a lot of sweat and excitement
Now we can look back on our growth and be thankful as The Lord truly blessed us

Eagle’s Nest Christian school was represented by four teams. Other schools that participated as well include PEPPS and Mitchell House.
The tournament involved three rounds, and each round had a different motion or topic. Each motion is debated by two teams from opposing schools. One team agrees with the motion (proposition) and one team disagrees with the motion (opposition). The motion for the first round was “South Africa should become a cashless society.” Round two challenged the teams with the motion “Children should be given a monthly allowance” and round three opened Pandora’s box with the motion “Children under the age of 10 should be given mobile phones”. This was an unprepared motion, meaning the debaters did not have the opportunity to research nor prepare for the motion.
All participating teams brought thought-provoking arguments to the table throughout the tournament. However, it was a team from Eagle’s Nest Christian School that reigned undefeated. The team won all three rounds they participated in. The other three teams each won one of the three rounds as well.
