THE cold front did not stop pupils and parents alike from having a festive time at the annual Hillcrest and Kloof High Derby Day earlier this month.

The day started off with rain early in the morning but the skies cleared up and turned out to be a pleasant, though cold day.

The matches kicked off on schedule and were all played in a good spirit throughout the day. Most of the results were closely contested.

Hillcrest had 8 wins, Kloof had 9 wins and there were three draws.

Organisers thanked all those who helped to make the day a success, including Hillcrest High’s catering, cleaning and maintenance staff, parent supporters, and of course all the young men and women from Kloof and Hillcrest High schools, who participated in each of the sporting events.

Students from both schools were commended by their respective heads - Mrs Dawn Lefort for Kloof High and Mr Craig Girvin for Hillcrest High, on the way they conducted themselves, both on and off the field.

Hillcrest High’s sports head, Mr Patrick Windsor, added his thanks by saying “I would like to thank all the staff, coaches, umpires, referees, spectators and most importantly the players who were part of Derby Day 2016.”
