THE King Edward High School first cricket team played their first match of the season against Kokstad College on February 14.

After winning the toss, Kokstad College elected to bat and they scored 115 for five in the allotted 20 overs. In reply, KEHS made 120 for the loss of three wickets, thus winning the match by seven wickets. For KEHS, Aditya Nair made 23 runs and took two wickets, while Kaden Duminy made 38 runs and took a wicket.

That same evening, the King Edward School’s senior primary phase held their annual Valentine’s dance. A total of 130 boys and girls from Grades 1 to 7 feasted on pizza and doughnuts before sharing the dance floor with their friends during the fun-filled evening. When some pupils were asked how they experienced the evening, some said it was “epic”, “very romantic”, “awesome” and “captivating”.

The first rugby team, the U16s and the U14s, travelled to Sarel Cilliers High on February 16, where they enjoyed some festival rugby. On the Saturday morning the teams played against their respective opponents. The U14 side faced the hosts for their first game of the season. It was clear that the teams matched each other in terms of size, but we soon showed our attacking rugby. KEHS crossed the line three times in the first half, converting twice. The second half saw Sarel Cilliers come back hard and they scored an unconverted try. KEHS dug deep and came back at the end of the match with a final converted try, leaving the score 26-5 in our favour.

The firsts and U16s played with determination, giving of their best, but lost their matches.
