AS promised, the Grade 7 pupils write: “Our annual Mpumalanga tour started on Monday, 13 April and ended on Wednesday, 22 April. Some of us were really anxious about leaving home, but once we got there it was great.

“We stayed at Sabie, a five-star youth hostel at Mountain View, a game reserve, and finally at Swadini, a holiday resort. We saw incredible waterfalls and lots of wild animals - we were even fortunate enough to touch a cheetah. Altogether we travelled 2 140kms for a memorable experience, thanks to Mrs Marx and Mr Röttcher. Not only did we have fun, we got an outdoor education experience second to none.

“Thank you to everyone who supported our lucky draw - the winners are Mr and Mrs Mahomed­, who won a Ty-Pro-Trainer valued at R3 000.”

The past week has been filled with sport with our hockey and rugby teams competing in various tournaments. In the primary school our Grade 1 and Grade 2 pupils played their opening games, with Grade 1 pupils playing three matches against Wartburg (0-0), New Hanover (0-0) and Treverton (0-1), while the Grade 2 pupils played against Wartburg (0-1), Treverton (0-1) and Greytown Junior School (0-2).

The U9 mini-hockey team improved their game from last week, playing against New Hanover (0-2) and Wembley College (1-2) while the U11 girls played against Wembley (0-1), Wartburg (0-5), Treverton B (0-0) and Treverton A (0-2) as they too improve their game with every match.

In the high school the U15 girls’ hockey team played against St John’s and lost 2-1, while the U16 team lost 0-6 and the first team drew 0-0. The first team hockey boys played against Alexandra­ High at Hermannsburg and lost 0-2 despite a spirited performance. Later in the week, the U14 girls played Grace College and, despite spending the bulk of their time in the opposition half, ended 0-2, as did the U16s in their match against Grace College.

Then, in 7s rugby, the U16s won against Wembley (22-10) and lost to St Nicholas (5-17) at Wembley College
