ON Saturday 4 June, New Hanover Prep hosted its annual bazaar sports festival. This takes place on the same day as the NH Lutheran Church Bazaar and is always a highlight for our children and community.

The school was a hive of activity with 60 teams and over 600 players participating in the hockey and soccer festival.

The aim of mini-sport festivals is to expose children to different sport codes and for them to have fun on the sport field.

While introducing the children to competitive team sport, the focus is not on winning, rather on fostering the love of the game. At New Hanover Prep we emphasise the importance of team work and sportsmanship on and off the field.

On Tuesday 31 May, NHP hosted a mini-hockey and soccer festival. The soccer was structured slightly differently in that the teams were made up of a combination of Wartburg and New Hanover boys, who played in mixed teams against one another. It was rather refreshing to take away the inter-school rivalry at this age, and to see the boys enjoying their soccer and making new friends.
