GLORIOUS sunshine greeted Schulfest-goers this weekend, as Schulfest 161 kicked off with the stunning music recital on Friday - primary school and high school musicians entertained a packed school chapel with choral and instrumental pieces, as well as solo performances by our talented pupils.

The evening braai was well supported and set the scene for the good vibes the next day, where rugby and hockey supplemented the traditional Gemütlichkeit that characterises Schulfest.

An abundant variety of treats and meals kept guests fuelled for the day, and “Old pupils”, parents and friends of HMB stayed well into the evening, relaxing in the lapha and around the fire-pits warding off the evening chill.

On Sunday, the closing church service was followed by a plentiful breakfast. Special thanks go to all the parents, pupils, teachers, Old Pupils and the Hermannsburg Congregation for all the hard work behind the scenes and on the day to make this such a successful event, as well as to all the friends of HMB who helped and attended the Schulfest.

Our hockey teams did not lack in enthusiasm during Schulfest as they took the game to the opposition.

Our U10 girls played Greytown (1-0), Wartburg (1-0) and Wembley (0-0) as did our U13 girls: Greytown (1-0), Wartburg (1-0) and Wembley (0-0). The U16 girls ended 0-0 against Grace College after a disallowed goal, “camping” in their circle for most of the game. They drew 0-0 against both Wartburg and Wembley. Despite missing players due to illness, the 1st team girls held Wartburg to a 0-0 draw with their superb defence and saves by our U16 goalie, Dasha Mohlala. Against Wembley College the game ended 0-3.

While Schulfest was going on, Julian Königkrämer was scoring goals (three in total), captaining the Umzinyathi team - he has also been selected for the U12B KZN Midlands team.

We look forward to Schulfest 162 in 2018, as our teachers and pupils enjoy a well-deserved mid-term break. They will return on Thursday, when we will have the Ascension Day church service in our school chapel at 9.45 am.
