LAST Saturday morning King Edward High SP phase held high tea for the ladies of Matatiele and surrounds. Tea was enjoyed, stories exchanged, diets forgotten, and for a brief moment secret wishes were felt for another wedding occasion, after seeing Bella­’s new range of wedding dresses.

The morning was enjoyed by all. Matric girls modelled the dresses they wore to the matric farewell just two weeks earlier, while little ones also strutted down the catwalk.

We thank all the SP teachers for being such great hostesses, Mrs Karen Smith who gave a wonderful­ speech and all the ladies who attended for helping us raise funds for this year’s Grade 7 Cape Tour.

Hockey and rugby talent

KEHS vs St Monica’s Last Monday St Monica’s came to King Edward to play against our U11 and U13 hockey and rugby teams. King Edward emerged the stronger teams that afternoon. Some fine matches were played and great talent was shown.

The U11 KEHS hockey girls controlled a tight game, which picked up momentum by the end. We beat St Monica’s 6-4. The U13’s also played a hard game, but it smoothed out with a victory of 2-0 over St Monica’s.

KEHS’ U11 rugby boys produced a spectacular win of 45-0, while the U13’s won their match with a score of 19-17.

Well done to all the players who held the KEHS name high. KEHS vs Kokstad College

Last Friday King Edward High boys’ first hockey team played against Kokstad College. It was a very tough game with a rampant and talented team from KC. Some brilliant goal-keeping from Aaron Lombard restricted KEHS’s loss to 3-0. KEHS vs Elliot and Dordrecht

King Edward High’s U11, U13, U15 and the first team travelled to Elliot to play against Elliot and Dortrecht. KEHS won both their games against Elliot­ convincingly, with the results as follows: U11: 65-5 and U15: 27-0. Dortrecht won both their matches against KEHS with nail- biting final scores of 29-25 for the U13 team and 16-10 for the first team. Even though they were hard and physical matches, KEHS maintained focus and discipline throughout.

Congratulations to all players.KEHS vs St Patrick’s

On Tuesday, 18 May, St Patrick’s visited King Edward­ to play against our U10 and U11 girls’ hockey­ teams. The U10 A teams from both schools fought hard and drew the game 2-2. KEHS’ U10 B team also played their hearts out against St Patrick’s A, but lost 3-0.

KEHS’s U11 A team stepped up to the plate and probably played one of their hardest games this season. Even though they were exhausted by the end, no one gave up and we managed to beat St Patrick’s 2-1. The B team also held our name high stopping all the attacks from St Patrick’s and drew the game 0-0.

Congratulations to everyone who played.KEHS coaches are also winners

On Saturday two teachers from King Edward High - Walter Oelofse and Angela Cilliers - participated in the SA Masters Championships. They returned sporting several medals to prove that they are not only great coaches, but also wonderful athletes. Oelofse won a gold medal in the inter-provincial relay as part of the KZN relay team, silver medals in the 400m and 800m, as well as a bronze medal in the 200m. Cilliers came back with silver medals for both discus and shot put.

Congratulations – we are proud to have such fine athletes on our staff
