The junior hockey festival held at Riebeek College turned the school’s sports fields into a hub of excitement with 45 games being played during the course of the morning.

Family and friends of Riebeek College as well as learners from the school enjoyed themselves to the fullest.

“It’s been awesome and chilled! I loved the food, music and the matches,” said Olwethu Dlutu whilst Cameron Jafta said, “Its good seeing all my friends and playing the sport I love!”

Hockey player Kate-Lynn Forbes said, “It’s fun because you get to learn from the other teams’ mistakes.”

Mini hockey matches for u/11 and u/14 teams were held and the girls from Riebeek played against teams from Summerwood, Clarendon, Sunridge, Sonop, Collegiate, Muir and Parsons Hill.

With good sportsmanship Riebeek lost, drew and won.

“A huge thank you to our professional and experienced umpires for making sure our matches were played fairly,” said Sandra Gerber from Riebeek College Girls’ High School.

She also said special thanks goes to two special Riebeek girls who umpired, namely Tammy Japtha and Octavia Johannes, both Grade 11 Riebeek learners.

According to Theresa Woods, a teacher at the school, “They (Tammy and Octavia) were fantastic. They blew all our games, warmed up our teams and encouraged them throughout the games.”

Riebeek was also blessed with many kind sponsors from the community. – HEILIE COMBRINCK
