Kelsey Dillon van Sitters

Out with the ‘new’, in with the old. Lockdown has been lifted. Back to normal, the old normal, the time has finally arrived for us to pick up where we left off. It is time to experience something that has happened in the past. It is time for Miss La Rochelle 2022.

There has been a constant buzz in the corridors since the first look at the incredible girls who take part in Miss La Rochelle. With the event lingering around the corner, you cannot help but be curious. A way to satisfy any inquisitiveness is to take a glance at how the girls feel leading up to an event that has been on halt for four years. Their voices are filled with a flurry of nerves, excitement, and fervour.

Daniell Lemmer:

“To be honest, I am very nervous! We’re dancing and doing moves I never thought I’d be able to do in heels. There are so many factors that are ging into the planning and the preparation of the event. However, I am super excited to be up there and represent our school…I can’t wait to show the school what I’ve got! And it’s going to be amazing to experience it with the other girls.”

Sunè Erasmus:

“The build up to Miss LAR is exhilarating and nerve wracking at the same time. There is a lot of time and effort going into it, but it is so worth it! I am just enjoying the process and making the most of the it, and I can’t wait for the big night!”

Milan Horn:

“I’m feeling quite anxious, because it’s something completely out of my comfort zone, but I’m thrilled for everyone to see what we have prepared for the show.”

Zoe Vassilatos:

“It is going to be so big, its going to be so good. Whatever your expectations of Miss La Rochelle is, heighten them, okay. It is going to well-worth a R150. In my opinion, a R150 is quite cheap for a ticket. I think that Miss La Rochelle is going to be one of the if not the event of the year. I am not even saying it, because of my part in it. I think that the evets and the performances in between are going to be brilliant. The teachers are putting in so much effort to make this an amazing event! So I really think its well-worth watching.”

Hannah Prozesky:

“As for why people should come and watch well, one, we have put so much work into this and I think people will really enjoy it. The teachers have had to arrange so much and us girls have worked so hard to get to where we are now to put on a good show for the audience. I also think its ging to be an amazing experience for the audience. Without giving too much away, it is going to be amazing and out there!!”

Tatum Bouwer:

“Miss La Rochelle is going to be a showstopper that will definitely take your breath away. It is a jam-packed evening with exciting scenes and each finalist’s time to shine and be unapologetically herself. It is a special moment in history where Miss La Rochelle will be crowned for the first time in 3 years, and you definitely do not want to miss it.”

Julie Seynhaeve:

“After a three-year break, our favourite girls’ high school will once again get a chance to showcase the very best it has to offer. The Miss La Rochelle competition is a unique opportunity for the school to celebrate the wide variety of talents among its learners. It is so much more than a popularity contest, for the competition provides a stage for twelve girls to proudly represent all the different personalities and talents at the school – from athletics and academics to charm, wit, humour, creativity, and of course sheer beauty. After all, there is only one winner: La Rochelle Girls’ High School!”

The finalists and the organisers worked exceptionally hard to put up a show that the Larries will not easily forget.
