THE whistle blew, the starting gun fired, and the swimmers launched themselves into the water — the swimming gala was the first contest in the annual Mini-Olympiade, held this year on Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2.

Hermannsburg once again gladly welcomed Michaelis and Deutsche Schule Durban (DSD) to its beautiful country setting. DSD took the honours in the gala, with Dieter Hannweg­ and Vickey Kruse crowned Victor and Victrix Ludorum for their winning performances.

Later on the Friday, the girls’ and boys’ teams faced each other on the cricket field, with many keenly contested matches; DSD managed to take first place for this event as well.

The day finished off with some fun games, planned by the Grade 11 scholars as part of their life orientation leadership assignment, before the teams retired for the night in Hermannsburg’s boarding establishment.

On Saturday, the day kicked off with some great soccer from all the participating teams, after which lunch was served before the visiting teams embarked on their return journeys.

This year’s Mini-Olympiade was another great success, thanks to the enthusiastic participation of all the scholars.

Thanks go to all the teachers for their hard work, our Grade 11s for looking after the teams, and to the Hermannsburg parents who provided meals and refreshments for supporters and team members alike, along with the school’s caterers.

Earlier last week, our U15 cricket team played Wembley College — Hermannsburg made 135 runs for four wickets (Cebo Mzila 50, Neo Blackburn 31), to which Wembley replied with 137 to secure a win.

At the recent Quadrangular Gala, held at Wembley College, Kei Blackburn­ and Neo Blackburn took first place in their respective 50m breaststroke events.

We congratulate all our scholars on their achievements and the good sportsmanship they display.
