Our primary school again hosted the annual Umvoti Athletics in Hermannsburg, with Deutsche Schule Durban, Wartburg and Greytown Junior School competing in sunny weather last Saturday.

We congratulate Siena Kimble (U13: 1st 100m, 1st 150m, 2nd long jump, 2nd high jump), Julian Königkrämer (U11: 1st 100m, 2nd long jump), Matthew du Preez (U10 2nd high jump, 2nd long jump), Mhleli Ngobese (2nd U9 80m), Benjamin Rabe (2nd U13 Javelin), James Waller (U10: 3rd high jump, 3rd long jump), Dale Sosibo (3rd U13 javelin) and Greg Kassier (3rd U13 shotput) on their personal achievements.

Thank you to our parents and teachers who work so diligently behind the scenes to make our events friendly and successful.

Last Friday we celebrated Arbor Day with our traditional tree-planting as part of our morning devotion, where our pupils planted a buffalo thorn (ziziphus mucronata or blinkblaar-wag-’n-bietjie) tree, adding to the many other indigenous trees around the campus.

Some of these trees have grown tall over the years and are visited by Old Pupils, who recall their days in Hermannsburg and similar tree-planting ceremonies.
