THE misty morning on Friday did not deter the swimmers, supporters, parents and families from enjoying the inter-house swimming gala.

With both teams in good spirits, the each event was keenly contested. In the end, 13 records were toppled - David Torgius and Jarmin Claassen both broke the boys’ U15 backstroke and 100m freestyle records. Jarmin also broke the boys’ U15 breaststroke, freestyle (50m) and individual medley relay records. K. Blackburn broke the girls’ U15 breaststroke record. Lila de Wet broke the girls’ U15 butterfly, freestyle (50m and 100m) and individual medley records. Reedbuck broke the records for the girls’ U14 and U15 freestyle relays, and the U15 medley relay record. Age group champions were Tyro Bezuidenhout and Chloë Pope (U8), James Waller and Shaakirah Ebrahim (U10), Liam Uys and Carolina Hoffmann (U12), Michael Nell and Sonja de Wet (U14), Jarmin Claassen and Lila de Wet (U15), Dieter Volker and Lydia Köhne (U16), and Hugh Bouwer and Rhonda Christiansen (Open).

James Waller and Liam Uys shared the junior victor prize, while Carolina Hoffmann was junior victrix. Jarmin Claassen and Lila de Wet were the senior victor and victrix.
In the end, Reedbuck produced a tour de force and won both the spirit cup and the gala. Well done to all the swimmers, especially those who got in the water and won points for their houses even though swimming is not their forté. Thank you to all the moms and dads who provided coffee, tea and treats, the grounds manager and all the teachers and pupils, and of course, all those who came to support our school.

Our U14s played cricket against Wartburg’s U14s in a T20 match last week. Wartburg won the toss and sent us in to bat. HMB made 100 for the loss of one wicket (FC Uys 33, J. Königkrämmer 53 n.o.). The match was reduced to 13 overs due to a Wartburg injury, Wartburg making 56 for 4 in their allotted overs - Hermannsburg won by 44 runs.
The Hermannsburg boys also played tennis last week, this time against Grace College, winning 5-1 on points (30-24 in games). It was a closely contested match.
Mondli Gumede won his singles match 7-2. Well done all.
