Hermannsburg’s Primary School hosted another successful Mini-Olympiade recently.

Michaelis, Deutsche Schule Durban and Hermannsburg pupils competed in swimming, mini-cricket and mini-soccer.

Even the parents got involved, taking to the soccer field and playing to a good-natured draw between the three schools with their children cheering them on.

We congratulate Deutsche Schule Durban, who won the swimming gala (breaking two records — L Friederick, U12 boys’ 3x25m Medley Relay and M Hill, U9 boys’ 25m Freestyle) and the mini-soccer, drawing the mini-cricket with Michaelis (but winning on run difference).

Daniel Mulol from Durban was the male winner in the swimming, and Tracy Steffenson from Michaelis was the female winner.

Well done and thank you to all the pupils, parents and teachers from the three schools, and to our Grade 11s, who assist with the organisation and running of the event as part of their Life Orientation syllabus.

Our hockey girls participated in the Wartburg Festival, where they won their matches against Wembley College (1-0), Greytown High School (1-0), St Nicholas (1-0), drew against Domino Servite (0-0) and lost to Wartburg (0-3).

It was a great introduction to the 2018 hockey season and we thank the organisers in Wartburg.

Our High School Open Day was well attended this past weekend, with families from various parts of the country spending time at the school.

Four of our pupils from Grade 10 to Grade 12 presented the parents with their experiences and thoughts on academics, sport, music and religion at the formal session in the school chapel, before one of our parents related why Hermannsburg is the only place for her children.

Through mini-lessons, a “treasure hunt”, inter-house soccer, walks around the dam and through the forest, and Sunday’s church service (led by our high school pupils’ worship team), the Grade 7s and their parents learned all they needed to know about our school and why choosing Hermannsburg is the right decision to make.
We thank all our teachers and pupils who welcomed our visitors and helped to make the weekend a suc-cess.

This weekend we look forward to the HMB Sports Clinic for pupils, with SA cricketer Alviro Petersen and SA basketball player Reece Prinsloo, on Saturday, March 17 at 2 pm in Hermannsburg.

There are limited places, so please book yours to- day!
