‘Quality education is incomplete without a student, teacher and especially a parent’. On 18 August 2018 Inkamana High School was packed with parents who were keen to know about their child’s progress at school. The Grade 11s served tea and biscuits since it was freezing cold. The Grade 10s were selling mouth-watering muffins since they are busy with their fundraising for 2019. As the saying goes, curiosity killed the cat’ so were the Grade 8 parents as they wanted to know how their little ‘nunus’ are coping with high school. The students were on their toes hoping the teachers would sell good stories to their parents. It was such a pleasure to have our parents on campus.
