Hirsch’s Carnival recently spoiled the teachers and staff of Tom Newby school with coffee and scones, and the new Hirsch magazine to browse through, as they prepare for a busy term preparing for the exams. There are 60 Teachers teaching at the school and Top Newby is one of the top performing schools in the Benoni area.
Gezelle Mynhardt is the school principle and Hirsch’s Carnival honoured her with an appreciation award as one of the hardest working principles in the area. Nicole Lewthwaite is the social development counsellor at the school and she deals with all the children who have problems at home or at school. She was given the Social Worker of the Month for April award.
Nicole said “Our aim at Tom Newby is to have a safe environment for children to come and learn. At times, my job does get to me emotionally. It’s such a nice surprise to get recognised for this. Thank you Hirsch’s.”
Hirsch’s wish all the teacher luck with the second term and with preparing for the exams.
