ON February 21, Wembley made their way to Athlone Primary School to take part in the annual Lit Quiz.

Pupils were selected from Grade 6 and Form 1 based on their top English marks from internal exams and Cambridge Primary Checkpoint results at the end of last year. Ten schools competed in the competition and were represented by two teams each.

A variety of literacy questions from different genres were asked in 10 different categories. The top school, TWC, went to Johannesburg this past weekend to compete nationally. It was an amazing experience for our children who attended.

Wembley would also like to congratulate Sarah Barber, who has been chosen to represent the uMgungundlovu District at the KZN athletics school champs on March 9 and 10. She will be competing in 100 m and the long jump.

With an incredible display of tenacity and teamwork, Wembley College has successfully maintained its hold on the Combined Team Trophy, Girls’ Trophy and Boys’ Trophy for the Quadrangular Gala for four, seven and three years, respectively.

It was wonderful to see parents supporting, accompanied with their stopwatches to ensure that in case the official timekeepers made a mistake, they would be able to remedy the situation. We would like to thank the two captains, Louné Lötter and Tayla Porée, for an incredibly well-oiled machine which is the swimming squad. They have truly exhibited leadership with enthusiasm.

On February 23, the Grade 1s concluded their theme on Careers when some of their parents or relatives came to do a show and tell on their occupations.

Marlene Puttkammer and Michelle Nel came to share their passion for the aged and injured. We realised that we do not all have the personality or the gift of caring and sharing. Ros Bloemink gave an interesting talk on restaurants and the roles of waitresses and chefs in the industry. Theo Moonsamy showed photos of the Toyota workshop and spares’ section. He also dissembled a remote-controlled car so we could see how the small parts make up a whole. Jessica Smit, a physiotherapist, emphasised the importance of being healthy and active and using our muscles correctly. Salim Sayed from Min Cash brought interesting photos and videos describing the jobs of a supermarket manager. Next we had commercial artist Anesh Harripersad sharing his artistic talent with us, displaying works of art and calligraphy. Stefan Wilken explained how billboards are made and installed.

We would like to thank each one of them for giving their time and speaking to little people who have big dreams of their own. It was noticeable that one has to love what you do, and do what you love.

Last Thursday, 56 of our JP and SP children went to Hermannsburg to swim in the Umvoti Gala. We are proud of all our swimmers and those who had to wait a long time for their one relay event. Wembley was second after New Hanover. Aran Poreé broke the only individual record of the day with his U11 freestyle race and the only other record was broken by the U11 boys’ relay consisting of Aran Poreé, Callum Hull, Lee Pieterse and Marsel Johnson. The victor ludorum of the gala was Nasi Dede!

Wembley College would like to thank the Cassim family for donating a human skeleton to our school. It will certainly add practical value to the study of anatomy at Wembley College.
