Eight days, 19 hours, 36 minutes and 05 seconds left to go for the Premier Gala Event!
Do you have your Fashion/Musical and Gala Tickets yet?
All the passion and enthusiasm came across quite strongly in the Principal’s address (Mr. N. Hendricks) on the Radio last night.
So we will be having an awesome Trafs Family get together on Sunday, 23 September 2012 at the Green Point Urban Park with the youngsters, actually the Stars of Tomorrow playing some Rugby and everyone else chilling out and making up for lost time and meeting and renewing old friendships. Admission for this is FREE. Even Coffee/Tea will be FREE. Koeksistas, at almost free prices. Bring your Picnic Basket! Be there from 9h00.
Then more Stars of Tomorrow will shine at the Fashion/Musical which will be held at Trafalgar High School in a Humongous Marquee on the Tarmac, all ages welcome. Come and be entertained for R50.00 at your old School. Hmmm, nostalgia. Friday, 28 September 2012 is the day, or rather the evening, from 7h00 till yawn.
The Centennial Gala Event. What can one say. One Hundred Years of a rich heritage, during the Heritage week. If you are not there, then be prepared for disappointment, because it will only happen once this Century. The next one will only be in another 100 years time. Lifetimes of struggle, battles, survival and it paid off, Trafalgar High School is _still_ here for us to Celebrate its Centennial of existence, in spite of the spite of the previous Government, who had planned to close the School and re-invent it as a “White” Primary School. Dream on as they say. Trafs with its undaunted spirit has overcome all, the very building offering resistance to literal and figurative winds of change and time.
Per Angusta Ad Augusta
The Trafalgar High School Song was written by Alexander Busch in 1939 and the music arrangement done by the late Reggie Lesch.
If you have forgotten the Trafalgar High School Song then here are the lyrics:
Trafalgar glorious name
Enshrined in many hearts
And thou shalt spread thy fame
In near and distant parts
Thy name we do adore
This day and ever more.
The name, the very soul
That spurs us to our goal.
O Trafalgarians, be ye proud
Extol that thrice blessed name
And raise your adorations loud
Thus shall ye spread its fame
Thou art our hope our life
To thee our all of praise
Thou giv’st us strength to fight
Enkindled by thy rays
Though oft’ the hope seems vain
There’s nought us shall restrain
From battling with a will
Undaunted, hopeful still.
