Window on Wembley

2015-05-20 06:00

PLEASE remember to buy your tickets for this year’s high-school play - Revolting Rhymes - on Thursday 21 May. Tickets available from the office at R30 for adults and pupils in civvies and R10 for pupils in uniform.

On Tuesday, 13 May Wembley hosted the annual enviro quiz. Competition was fierce and it definitely benefited pupils who had enthusiasm and motivation to achieve. Wembley tried their best, but unfortunately did not place in the top three.

We thank Cliff Walton (organiser), Kevin Cockburn (quizmaster) and the judging panel for their contribution to the event.

The Foundation Phase was treated to a puppet show by Heather Tomlinson on Tuesday. Bert lost his new kite and friends offered to help him find it.

Important issues such as saying “please” and “thank you” were discussed in the play. Concepts such as courage, friendship, school rules and saving forests were also dealt with in the play. All the grades from RRR up to Grade 3 were involved in singing and movement activities in which they participated with enthusiasm.

On Wednesday 13 May, Wembley hosted a tag-rugby and rounders afternoon. Thank you to parents who supported this initiative. The afternoon of sport was followed by a bring-and-braai at the pavilion. The parents and their children had an absolute ball on the main oval. We hope to have more of these events in the future and thank you to Mr Jackson and Mr Larkan for organising and running it.

Well done to the following Wembley pupils who made the Umzinyathi team - U12 girls, Leah Tedder, Mayenzi Maphanga, Keren Chiazzari, Sarah Barber and Kristen Steyn. U12 boys, Jack Yeadon and Nkosinathi Dlamini. U13 girls, Calista Muna and Jessica Maré. U13 boys, Luke Poreé and Mark Barber.

This team will play in the inter-district tournament in PMB on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May. This tournament also serves as the Midlands trials. We wish them all the best. Mr Jackson will accompany the teams as an umpire for the tournament.

Calista Muna had a sport-filled holiday. She played in the interprovincial tournament in Bloemfontein followed by the TSA One Tennis Tournament where she was runner-up in the 12 and under section.

On 8 and 9 May, Calista Muna, Dean Page and Roland Gouws played in the KZN Dunlop Mini Series Two in Durban. Calista played in her first U14 tournament and finished in fifth position and as runner-up in the doubles. Dean came fourth in the U14 section and Roland fifth in the U16 section.

Congratulations to Kyra Wallace, Emma Poreé and Micayla Reineke on being invited to the next round of KZN country district hockey trials.
