The popular youth TV show, “Hectic Nine-9” approached Mr Long about doing a question and answer session on site. He (Mr Long) passed this request on to Mr Lewis and Mr Arendse, who immediately jumped at the opportunity to promote the school positively.
The crew arrived at 10:45am on February 5, at which point many of the junior learners promptly displayed the crazy energy we’ve come to know and love.
Seeing as the crew was early, they spent time with Mr Arendse’s register class (8F), before meeting with the Grade 11F class during their Life Orientation lesson.
They spent the period asking questions about what learners are dealing with in their lives and whether or not Hectic Nine-9 was adequately catering for their needs, in terms of dealing with those issues.
The second part of the lesson was devoted to having the learners ask the presenters about careers in showbiz. They (the learners) were particularly keen on finding out how the presenters got into showbiz in the first place.
It was most exciting to have nationally recognized celebrities up close and personal and many learners took full advantage to meet and greet their favourite celebs.
Let’s hope that this will not be the last time we see Hectic Nine-9 at Rhodes High School..!
