OUR speech and drama festival took place last week over two days. We had a total of 100 entries - 82 individual entries and 18 choral verses and of these 56 were awarded an A or an A+.

Once again our adjudicator was Mrs Ann Walmsley ably assisted by Mrs Kim Steyn. We would like to thank both these ladies.

The Mascor Spelling Bee took place on Wednesday 17 February. It was an entertaining evening of spelling (and misspelling) and we congratulate the winners:

Grade 2 and Grade 3: Samuel Mason, Grade 4 and Grade 5: Caitie van Zuydam, Grade 6 and F1: Amoré van Rooyen, F2 and F3: CG Nefdt, F4, F5 and F6: Megan Meyer

On Tuesday, 16 February 40 swimmers took part in the Wartburg fun gala. We were proud of our two relay teams. Good luck to pupils who are participating in the championship gala on Saturday to attempt to make the Midlands swimming team.

On Thursday the JP phase got ready for their annual fun gala. Children from Grade R to Grade 3 participated in relays and races. At the end of the gala, each child received a medal and did a lap of honour around the pool to the strains of “Stand up for the Champions”. We thank Mrs Lauren Poreé for handing out the medals.

Dean Page participated in the KZN Mini 1 Dunlop Tennis Tournament at Westridge Stadium in Durban from 19 to 21 February. The points earned on every tournament allows you to move up or down on the national rankings.

Dean, who was ranked 16th in KZN for the U14 age group at the end of the 2015 season, is also the youngest member of the Riverside Tennis Club. He was also invited by Elite Academy to go on two tours to the Free State later this year.

From the age of six, Sarah Barber played cricket for the Wembley College Grade 1 team and progressed as a player. Sarah has competed in cricket every year and now finds herself in the U13 A side where she has proven to be one of the most valuable members in the team.

In the Umvoti 6s tournament this year, Sarah was voted the player of the tournament where she did remarkably well. Sarah has proved to be a great leader of the team.

On Tuesday, 16 February Wembley hosted the annual quadrangular gala and has been declared the best at swimming. In addition six out of the eight age-group trophies went to Wembley pupils: U14 boys’ Luke Poreé, U15 girls’ Milla Herbst, U15 boys’ Michael Chiazzari, U16 girls’ Tayla Poreé, open girls’ Hope Poreé and open boys’ Daniel Richardson.
