Hermannsburg happenings

2015-05-20 06:00

HERMANNSBURG A and B teams recently contested the regional Mondi WESSA Enviro Quiz in Greytown and were placed first and third respectively. Well done to both teams. We look forward to the national final in July when we hope to bring the trophy back to Hermannsburg again. Pupils and teachers from the high school and the primary school took to the road verges and our “flower patch” conservation area last week to once again work towards eradicating alien plants that invade our ecosystem. Thank you to Mondi for its assistance in this clean-up.

The Grade 4 class visited the Mission House Museum and were taken on a tour of the past by Ms P. Reibeling and Mrs I. Von Fintel who explained how Hermannsburg and our school came to be.

On the sports front our U16 and U19 7s rugby teams are lying both second on the league log, with St Nicholas and Waterfall to beat respectively, as they strive towards reaching the top of the log. In the primary school our boys are playing tag rugby - the U9 team won four out of four matches so far and the U13 team has drawn one and lost two matches.

The first team hockey boys played against Domino Servite­ and lost 1-2 (T. Von Seydlitz scoring for Hermannsburg). Jonathan Königkrämer­ was selected for the U12 Umzinyathi hockey team and will play in the inter-districts tournament on 23 and 24 May in Pietermaritzburg. Benjamin Rabe and Sethu­ Mabaso were selected as reserves. Well done to all three.

The hockey girls played against Greytown, with the U14s drawing 0-0 while the U16s ended 0-1, the second team 2-3 and the first team 1-3. Against Carter High, the U14s won 1-0 (Angelika Meyer­ scoring), while the U16s ended 0-3 and the first team 0-1.

The U10 girls played on Saturday, winning against Pelham C (4-1) and Pelham B (4-0), but losing to Pelham A (1-2). Linique Alexander, Siena Kimble and Mischka Khan were our goal-scorers. The U9 girls beat Eston B twice (3-0 and 4-0) and lost to Eston A (0-1)
