Hermannsburg Happenings

2017-05-31 06:05

CATCHING up with news from the past few weeks, our school was invited to help organise and provide officials for the night ride portion of the Greytown MTB Classic held at The Beehive.

Despite the inclement weather and low temperatures, our pupils did us proud with their cheerful and helpful enthusiasm for their tasks.

Some of them also competed - Owen Gumede and Kabelo Molefe were tied for first place in the Saturday’s 10km run, on the night ride, the team of Luka Poser and his father won the senior section, Ayabonga Dlamini and Luke Pellow-Jarman were the second team home, and the team of Kabelo Molefe, Owen Gumede and Joel Pope tied for third place, James Waller, Liam Uys and James Pellow-Jarman tied for first place in the junior team section.

On the Sunday, Amy Whittle placed first in the 10km run with Millisoa Mavie in third place. Asanda Nzimande was followed in by James Waller and Lungelo Mbambo for the three kilometre run.

First lady in on the 16km run was Ms Marsé van der Merwe. While these stars were competing, others were busy washing and polishing bikes at the HMB Bike-wash. Thank you to all our pupils and helpers, and to Mrs Penny Waller for organising our school’s contribution.

On 19 May, our Grade 1 & 2 girls played hockey in a tournament at Wembley College, enjoying the excitement of participating in an “away” fixture.

Our 1st team girls, with the help of some U16 players, took on Grace College on astro, ending 0-3.

In an intense, fast-flowing game our 1st team boys were 2-2 against Domino Servite School before they “got their eye in” to end the match 5-2 in Hermannsburg’s favour.
