THEY sang and played and did themselves and the school proud at the recent Pietermaritzburg Eisteddfod. Our musicians were complimented not only on their performing talent, but also on their courtesy.

The following musicians achieved silver awards (75%-84%): Elisabeth Tönsing (piano Grade 3, voice Grade 7), Simon Röhrs (piano Grade 3), Rachel Bourn (piano Grade 5), Clara Kohrs (piano Grade 5), Christel Brüggemann (piano Grade 6), Danielle Schweiger (voice Grade 6), Meike Meyer (voice Grade 6) and Rhonda Christiansen (voice Grade 7). Rachel is in the primary school, while the others are in the high school.

Following on from this success, our music department hosted the Hermannsburg Eisteddfod, with Gérard’d du Toit adjudicating, and once again our musicians earned high praise.

A total of 17 pupils from the primary and high schools participated in various categories (recorder, piano and voice from music Grade 2 to Grade 7).

While the majority of pupils were awarded silver certificates (75-89%) there were several who were awarded gold certificates (90% and over), which is a wonderful achievement.

In sports news, primary school hockey boys have been very busy. At the day-night tournament in New Hanover, the U11 team played hard against Wartburg (3-0), St Patricks’ (4-0), Ixopo (3-0), Wembley (0-2) and New Hanover (1-5), earning themselves a place in the final where they again faced New Hanover.

A last-minute goal by New Hanover saw the final end 1-0 and our boys finishing second­ in the tournament, ahead of Wembley College, St Patrick’s, Wartburg and Ixopo­.

On Saturday our teams travelled to Treverton, where the U10 team lost only one match as they played Winterton B (0-0), Winterton A (0-3), Underberg (3-0) and Treverton (4-4); the U9 team played Underberg (0-4), Winterton A (0-5), Treverton (2-2) and Winterton B (2-2).
