ATHLETICS season is in full swing at New Hanover Prep School. This time of year sees our athletes competing in the various athletics events and meetings. Recently, our pre-primary and Grade 1, 2 and 3 children participated in our fun athletics morning. The children had a ball with events such as the mini hurdles, egg and spoon, skipping and sack races. Our inter-house athletics day was held on August 3. The children had been practising for the various events for a number of weeks and this event is always a highlight for them. Awards were as follows: Junior Victrix Ludorum: Jade van Breda; Junior Victor Ludorum: Rory Schirge. Senior Victrix Ludorum: Melissa Dobeyn and Senior Victor Ludorum: Juan Jansen van Reynsburg. In total, three records were broken on the day. Duiker won the spirit cup and Rietbok won the overall athletics trophy, with 766 points to Duiker’s 688 points.— Supplied.
