WEMBLEY College’s Form 2 and 3 pupils enjoyed a busy few days at Sweetdale Adventure camp, where they participated in programmes aimed at developing their leadership and critical thinking skills. Each Form participated in their own specially designed programme, which included abseiling, zip lining, high ropes, night time activities and ocean fun boat rides. The pupils returned tired, but great fun was had by all. Since the start of our school 20 years ago the Grade 6 class have been going to White Mountain every year. This class left for their annual White Mountain camp on Wednesday 10 May until Friday 12 May. The camp was fun filled with many activities such as rock climbing, abseiling, hiking, team-building activities and fuffi sliding. The Grade 6 pupils participated in every activity even though some were very challenging. What impressed the instructors the most was the way the pupils listened to each other and co-operated as a group. The Grade 6 group were true ambassadors of Wembley College.The Form 1 class also had their camp from 10 to 12 May last week. A lovely time was had by all with all the varied activities. Most impressive of this group was their camaraderie and support of each other to manage the obstacles. It was more important for the pupils to enjoy the activity than to beat another group at it. Rocky the dog brought extra fun to the time spent there. Noteworthy was the fact that this was the first group of all schools that managed to catch two scorpions in the eco-challenge.The preschool had their annual cheese and wine evening last Thursday at the Greytown Country Club. The preschoolers entertained parents with a fashion show where they dressed up as their favourite heroes - from fairytale creatures to superheroes, they strutted their stuff. We thank the parents who supported the preschool by purchasing their children’s art and bid on the items on auction. The painting was purchased by Mr and Mrs Pretorius, the braai by Mr and Mrs Gunter and the garden set my Mr and Mrs Hill. It was a delightful evening with a lot of delicious snacks and wine. On Saturday, 13 May, Wembley College hosted the annual Spar KZN School Girls’ Hockey Challenge. With five schools participating, it proved to be extremely challenging as the weather was cold, but that did not prevent the girls from participating. Overall, Wembley performed well throughout the morning and made their way into the final where they came up against a strong Wartburg team. Wartburg were quick out the blocks and eventually won the final with an impressive 3-0. We would firstly like to thank Spar for their hospitality and supplying the much-needed warm drinks and the parents for supporting the teams despite the temperature. Lastly we congratulate the Wembley Open girls on their performances throughout the morning as they did our school proud.
