Sports Results

The under 13 cricket team played against Reddam. We batted first and with a great

opening partnership from Jared and Jude we managed to make 109/2 after 15 overs. With Jared Paulse top scoring with 45 runs. Reddam struggled to get going with the bat and only scored 49 runs in 15 overs. We won by 60 runs. The man of the match is Jared Paulse. Well done to the Under 13 cricket team who is unbeaten this season.

On Wednesday, 26 th February, the U11 Cricket team played a match against Herzlia. Herzlia won the toss and elected to field first. It was a steady effort from the team, and we managed to score 52/4. Daniel Dennis scored 13 runs. While fielding, we managed two fantastic run outs by Devlin Boonzaier and Liam Floris. Our bowling is improving, but we couldn’t prevent them from reaching the target of 53 runs. Herzlia won the match by 8 wickets. Congratulations to our man of the match, Daniel Dennis.

Security Update

As of this month we would like to welcome our new Security Guard who will be working hand in hand with Maurice to increase safety on the school premises. Maurice is now working directly for the school and will be present when learners come to and leave the school premises. Please direct any queries or concerns directly to me to avoid MISINFORMATION from spreading.

Grade 7 News

The Grade 7’s visited Rusoord Retirement Village last week. The learners accompanied the elderly for a walk around the village and learnt about their childhood. The learners performed a few beautiful songs which the elderly thoroughly enjoyed. It was a truly meaningful experience and the children showed us their true colours with their sincere interaction with the respected members of our community.

Well Done Grade 7s!
