ENGINES racing, riders descended on Hermannsburg for our second fun ride for bikes and quads on 30 April, which was once again a huge success with riders coming from all over to a sunny Hermannsburg.

Private landowners and Mondi opened their properties and bikers were able to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

The track designers, Mark and Philip Gathmann, with their team of helpers, pulled out all the stops to present a track that suited not only experienced riders but also had an alternative route for the not-so-serious riders. Many a biker commented on an excellently marked track.

A huge thank you to the Kranskop Farmers’ Association, that provided breakfast rolls and burgers to the hungry riders and spectators.

After the fun ride, the barrel racing was also a hit, where many men and some ladies proved their riding skills and agility.

Thank you to all our sponsors, Mahindra, NCT, Umvoti Repairs, Aheers Build & Save, TWK, Ekerold Yamaha, Rocket Racing, Alfie Cox KTM, Farmers’ Agri-Care, Plennegy, Bohrmeister, Ruben’s Home Deli, Tuta Carriers, Mascor, Mondi, aQuellé, David’s Motors Midas, KZN AgriServe, Faan van Rooyen, Carl Gathmann, Günther Meyer, Rolf Königkrämer, HMB School Trust, G. Köhne family, Allstone Solutions and Link Seed as well as our parents, teachers and pupils, and not least all the riders, who worked together to make the day a great success.

Our Grade 1 and 2 players played their first hockey games against Wartburg, Greytown and New Hanover, having great fun chasing the ball all over the field and they are all very excited about playing their next games. Well done to the girls, especially Naseeha Randera, who was the player of the afternoon.

Our pupils again excelled in the first round of this year’s Zulu Olympiad - S. Dlomo, A. Dlamini, Y. Khuzwayo, S. Mbambo, Z. Magubane, N. Sithole, N. Mene, L. Nyirenda, N. Mpungose, S. Mngoma, O. Gulubela and N. Khoza proceed to the next round.

Nqobile Sithole scored our top mark in the first round with 90%, closely followed by Zenande Magubane with 88%, all the rest achieved high 70s and 80s.
