MEMBERS of the South African Irish Regiment Pipe Band attended this year’s Duck Derby at Wembley College. The band is involved with military parades throughout the year and is a regular fixture at the South African Tattoo which takes place annually in Johannesburg. The band has also performed internationally at the Edinburgh Tattoo. The band will be performing throughout the day on Saturday 12 September at the Duck Derby.

Three of Wembley College’s pupils - Hapson Mushoriwa, Nhlakanipho Mkhize and Ross van Rooyen - took part in the National Aqualibrium Water Competition at the SCI Bono Centre in Midrand on 31 July. We placed fourth out of 13 teams that came from all over Africa. We extend our sincere thanks to SAICE for paying for our airfare tickets to Johannesburg and for our hotel accommodation in Midrand during the competition.

Congratulations to junior cyclists Marc and Sarah Barber who completed the Eston Tala 18km bike ride on Sunday, 2 August. Despite the tired legs from inter-house athletics the previous day, they both did exceptionally well.

The Wembley Junior Primary pupils and staff have been buzzing for the last few weeks, preparing for their annual concert, Go Fish. An enchanting tale was woven beneath the waves, which involved some sharks, loads of fish, a motley crew of sea creatures and some humorous dialogue.

One of the aims of our annual concert is to develop self-confidence in public speaking. Every child is encouraged to have a speaking part. The staff and parents were very impressed by the confidence of our youngsters, even the Grade R children, who performed with great aplomb. The costumes were colourful and the concert delighted the eye as well as the ear. Our talented cast danced and sang with great gusto. Many a foot was heard tapping to the rhythm of the lively music. The children are to be admired for remembering all their lines as well as their dance movements.

Such a production would not have been possible without the incredible team effort of the teachers, children and parents. The junior primary concert has become a highlight on the calendar at Wembley and this year proved no exception.

On Friday 31 July and Saturday 1 August, two of our pupils participated in the KZN Mini 3 Tennis Tournament in Durban. Dean Page played in the boys’ U14 platinum group, and finished in sixth place and Calista Muna finished ninth in the singles and runner-up in the ladies section of the doubles (combined age groups). Congratulations to both players, you continue­ to do Wembley proud
