What a show it was! 20 of our talented ladies participated in Kleinsêr this year. Under the leadership of Nicola Kaden and Esté Theunissen, they worked hard to produce an fine performance. Their repertoire contained “It’s a “Hard Knock Life”, “Candyman” and a self-written song by one of our firstyears! We are immensely proud of the performance they delivered! Well done!

Huis Horison is ‘n residensiële- en werksentrum in Stellenbosch wat fokus op die holistiese ontwikkeling van mense met intelektuele gestremdheid. Harmonie gesamentlik met Majuba manskoshuis lê elke Dinsdagaand besoek af by Huis Horison. Die hooffokus is om die inwoners holistiese te ontwikkel. Gedurende die dag werk die inwoners by ‘n werkstasie op die eiendom. Die inwoners word volgens hul intelektuele vermoëns en belangstellings ingedeel. Tydens ons weeklikse besoek word daar gefokus op die inwoners se behoefte aan emosionele en sosiale ontwikkeling. Ons streef daarna om rolmodelle vir die inwoners te wees. Ons geniet speletjies aande, sokker, lof en sang, lyndans, naels verf en pannekoek bak saam met die inwoners. Tot dusver het Harmonie en Majuba al wonderlike vriendskappe met Huis Horison inwoners gebou.
Yes, it’s that time of year already. The first semester’s exam are upon us. Here’s just a few tips to remind you of how we do exam time in Harmonie:
No men are allowed in res over the weekends. We expect minimum noise at all times. This includes All-Calls, in the quad and on the stoep. The Swottery is ONLY for Harmonie girls during the exams. Please respect your fellow Harmonie friends and give them the opportunity to prepare.
Good luck to everyone for your exams! We trust that you will all your best!
Don’t forget about Royal’s coffee, tea and cake in the Cookery at 10:00 every morning! Bring your own mug!
Let asb daarop dat ons al in die eerste week van volgende semester ‘n Huisvergardering het: 23 Julie, 21:00.
Please note that we will have a House Meeting in the first week of next semester: 23 July, 21:00.
Look how lovely our netball ladies look! Our two netball teams have recently finished with the residence summer league, and the results will be released soon. The fixtures for the upcoming winter league will also appear on the website, so keep an eye out.
Monday, 6 May was a very special day for all the ladies in Harmonie. It is the night the men from Huis Visser surprised us and confirmed that Harmonie and Huis Visser will be pairing up for MAD² 2014.
Their act of acceptance to all our spading attempts was to set a anchor made from hay alight outside Harmonie while serenading the ladies. They ended with a warcry that made the Harmoniete cheer. They also gifted us with a sweet thing. Thanks gents!
It’s been coming for a while and the time is finally here. The Harmonie and Huis Visser MAD² is going to be epic. Can’t wait!
