IT was a rainy and wet 14 September evening. The forest creatures had gone in search of their honey, which was nowhere to be found.

Deutsche Schule Hermannsburg Primary School put on its biennial stage production, this year titled Where is the Honey? The evening was a huge success and the many supporters of the evening were delightfully entertained by the whole cast - from the choir (which sang classics song like Sing a Song of Sixpence and a remake of the Abba classic Honey, Honey, Honey, and the bees and their allies, to the predators with their gangster outfits and attitudes to match. Congratulations to the primary school pupils for their hard work, and to their teachers and parents who worked tirelessly behind the scenes.

The success of the primary school play was followed the next evening, when the Grade 12 pupils presented their matric orals to the Grade 11s and their parents and teachers.

Once again the examiners were impressed by the quality of the presentations, on a diverse range of interesting topics, with appropriate Powerpoint visuals augmenting the polished deliveries. The week was rounded off with the annual speech and drama­ festival where the external adjudicators again praised our pupils’ performances.

Our primary school athletes went up against the teams from Wartburg, Pelham, Gert Maritz and Greytown last week, where Julian Königkrämer was named U10 champion for his achievements on the day.

Some of the results - first places were taken by Julian Königkrämer (100m), Luyanda Gumede (javelin), Jessica Vroegop (high jump) and Matthew du Preez (high jump). Second places were achieved by Siena Kimble (100m), Benjamin Rabe (javelin), Julian Königkrämer (high jump) and Rachel Bourne (high jump). Well done to all our primary school athletes and their coaches.

We look forward to the Supper Theatre on Thursday, 22 September in our church hall, and to the Hermannsburg Golf Day on Friday and Saturday, 23 and 24 September at St Cathryn’s Golf Estate, where we continue to celebrate 160 years of HMB.

There may still be places open for the Friday and Saturday fields (phone 074 125 0054 for details should you just wish to play, or play and sponsor with advertising opportunities.
