PARENTS, teachers and pupils converged on Hermannsburg last weekend as the primary school hosted a 2020 ‘Mini-Olympiade.’

Grade 11 pupils planned, organised, and ran this full sporting weekend for their primary school and the two visiting schools under the watchful eye of their life orientation teacher James Torlage. Deutsche Schule Durban and Michaelis Private School (Vryheid) each brought along their sports teams to participate in mini-cricket matches, a full swimming gala and mini-soccer matches, with junior and senior girls and boys participating.

The weekend started off with the mini-cricket matches and the swimming gala on Friday, followed by an evening of fun games arranged by the Grade 11s and a social braai for the visiting parents and staff. On Saturday morning it was time to don soccer boots, and for some fierce competition on the football fields.

While this annual event is about far more than competition between the teams, scores are kept and Deutsche Schule Durban won the swimming gala and the overall winner’s trophy, pipping Hermannsburg at the post in the soccer portion of the tournament.

Deputy principal Lothar Witthoft said: “A tremendous weekend was had by all, many new friendships were forged, lessons were learnt, and everyone had a great deal of fun. Thank you to all the teachers, the scholars and the parents - especially those who provided tasty treats and meals throughout the Mini-Olympiade.” — Supplied.
