KEHS at Scottburgh High sports festival

LAST weekend the first girls hockey and boys rugby teams of KEHS participated in the Scottburgh High sports festival with both teams performing well for the start of the season.

The first hockey team played against four schools - Creston College, Port Shepstone High, Kuswag and Kingsway High. KEHS won three matches and drew one without conceding any goals.

The first rugby team’s game against the host school was played with great intensity and at a furious pace. Scottburgh was the dominant team at scrum time but KEHS played as a unit, enabling a try by the wing. At half time the score was 5-0 for KEHS.

In the second half KEHS let their guard down after scoring another try and thus Scottburgh broke through to score and convert a try. This made the game a tight affair with Scottburgh showing no signs of giving up, but the King Edward boys were resurgent, scoring and converting a last-minute try to ensure a 17-7 win for KEHS.

Congratulations to Kaden Duminy on two fine tries.

KEHS E-gala champions

Last Thursday, King Edward’s excited swimming team travelled to Pietermaritzburg to participate in the E-gala. Although it was raining during the event, with very cold temperatures, the KEHS swimmers performed brilliantly and won the gala with ease.

Congratulations and thank you to Epworth School for organising such an enjoyable event.

KEHS athletes perform well at provincial events

Over the past weekend several King Edward pupils participated in two athletics meetings.

Kayla Harris, Stephan Terblanche and Ashwin Jood competed in the KZN Youth and Junior Championships in Durban. Kayla achieved gold in shot put, silver in discus and bronze in javelin in the girls U17 category. By earning gold, she qualified for the SA Championships in shot put.

Stephan received a second place in the hammer throw for boys’ U17. Ashwin came fourth in the boys U17 100m event and also took part in the 200m and 400m races.

Aaron Lombard participated in the Eastern Cape Schools Championships in East London and earned two silver medals: one for discus with a distance of 46,23m and another for shot put throwing 15,65m. Well done to all the athletes.

King Edward pupils address Parliament

Sinalo Nyakambi had the honour of presenting at a State of the Province Address (SOPA) address at the Eastern Cape Parliament as winner of the provincial competition in 2016. Her presentation was brilliant and well received. Leletu Nontwana came second in the 2017 provincial competition in the English Home Language category. King Edward High certainly produces talented orators.
