MURRAY HOUSE IS PROUD... AND WOULD LIKE TO THANK...
Our sincere thanks to the members of staff at Murray House, as well as our
parents for making the first day at Murray House on 8 January 2013 a special
day. I’d like to thank Mrs Annette Marais and her kitchen
staff for catering at this event and also for making every meal at Grey College
a special “home from home” experience.
I would also like to thank Johann from “Iewers
Nice” in Reid Street, for the flowers that they’ve supplied on the 8th of
January. Each of our new residents also
received a pencil, bookmark and sweets from one of our donors. Even though the
Newies cannot wait to go home over the weekends, they have adjusted well in
their new environment.
A very special “Thanks” to the mothers of Jomaar and Marnich who supplied and helped to stock our Emergency
Kits. Dr. M. Op’t Hof sponsored and gave
a fully supplied Emergency Kit. Murray House would also like to thank Cheré Fourie who made our Easter
special, by supplying a cross. Adam from
“Crearie”, a Christian theatre group, spoke to the boys about the true meaning
of Easter. We are grateful to the Grey “Mothers
who Care” group who came to pray for our hostel.
We are proud of all our boys and would like to mention that Casper Fourie (prefect) - 1st team player,
scored one of the winning tries on 03/09/2013 against Hentie Cilliers. Jaco
Louw, one of the Newies, broke his arm during the same weekend in a game
against Diamantveld, where the score was in favour of Grey: 42-0. The u/15 A team played some rugby matches
during the March holidays and two of the captains, namely Thian and Mario, are
residents at Murray House. They are proud about the team’s winning score of
14-3 against Oakdale College.
We are happy to announce that the resident’s kitchen
has been upgraded and tiled and the staircase has also been varnished.
I would like to congratulate the following grade 9 boys on winning the “MOST TIDY ROOM” award for the First
Term. They were able to eat out and they
set an example to the other residents: Lucky, Michael
(Taljaard), Tseke en Yanga.
Murray House would also like to thank the parent
committee, especially Cherie Fourie, Lizette Schoonwinkel, Liezel van Niekerk and
Franci Koeglenberg for their commitment and kindness towards the wellbeing and
benefit of our residents.
