ALTHOUGH the weekend started out wet and cold there was no damper on the excitement in the air as the events proceeded as planned.

This year's MTB introduced a new event - the night race- the challenge of which was met by a number of our pupils and they enjoyed the variation immensely.

The PA would like to take this opportunity to thank each parent and pupil who either took part in, or assisted at the mountain bike festival.

We would also like to thank our generous sponsors who continually support us and make events such as this possible.

Grade 6 pupils departed from Wembley College at 7.45am. Our first stop was Fort Dunford, it was very educational and we loved learning about the Boere war. After that we went to Bunjy Toys and watched as the 10 staff members made toys. After the tour we were allowed to buy some toys.

Our last tour was through the Glamosa Glass factory. This factory uses recycled glass to make light bulbs and many other glass products.

When we finally arrived at White Mountain Resort we were greeted by our guides, Mike and Toby. They were very encouraging and were an integral part of building the class's teamwork. We had many activities which varied from abseiling to Stalk the Lantern.

We hiked up White Mountain, foofy slide through valleys and did icebreakers. We also had to make a bridge out of rope and sticks in one hour. The night activities were very exciting and the food was delicious.

Tomas Evans continues to the second round of trials. Well done to him for making the second round for U14 boys' hockey inland trials.

The U12 and U13 boys and girls, who represented Umzinyathi, travelled to PMB for the district tournament at St Johns and St Charles this past weekend. Having a training session on Friday and two full days of games on Saturday and Sunday, the players really had to dig deep to play their best.

Well done to Nkosinathi for making the U13 boys' KZN Inland B, C and D squad and to Leah Tedder for making the U13 girls' KZN Inland B, C and D squad as a none-travelling reserve.

We are proud of the both of you, this is a really great achievement.
