OUR dedicated Grade 12 pupils and their accounting teacher were hard at work on Saturday, 12 August, arriving at school bright and early at 7am to work on their case study - analysing parts of the Spur Corporation Ltd Integrated Report of 2016.
They were given five hours to complete this task, which is one of their portfolio items. They kept going through the morning with tea breaks and snacks as they diligently went about their task.
Our U13 hockey boys, meanwhile, played in a tournament at Howick Primary School where they won two, drew two and lost one of their five games, playing against Kokstad (0-2), Howick C (0-0), Howick D (At the inter-schools athletics meeting at Treverton, Julian Königkrämer again did us proud, coming first in shot put, long jump, the 100m and the 150m races, and third in high jump.0-0), Treverton (1-0) and Scottsville B (1-0).
Well done to goal-scorers Benjamin Rabe and Julian Königkrämer, and to all the players in the team.
Well done to all our athletes, who consistently achieved in the top places against a wide field of competitors.
Our young soccer teams from the high school were up against more experienced opposition when they played Greytown High, losing both of their matches.
The senior team defended well in the second half of their match, preventing the Greytown High players from scoring any further goals.
Last week, our Viva Voce Girl’s Choir participated for the first time at the PMB Eisteddfod (the girl’s choir was established last year and has grown from 18 to 38 girls), where it presented Orinoco flow (Enya) and Royals (Lorde), both of which were well received.
The girls were complimented on their strong performance as a young choir and achieved 82% (silver).
Our four Grade 12 music pupils represented our school in a solo capacity - Meike Meyer, Elisabeth Tönsing and Jordan Pope in the Grade 7 classical voice category, and Rhonda Christiansen in the Grade 8 classical voice category (we await the adjudicator’s final assessment).
We congratulate our pupils on their performances and look forward to an even better eisteddfod next year.
We are also looking forward to hosting the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands Youth Choir in Hermannsburg on 24 August (booking is still possible through the school office), where they will be joined by our school choirs, as well as the Hermannsburg Eisteddfod, which will be held on 28 August in Hermannsburg.
