The 1st team boys won 2-0. Overall the hockey went well and there were no serious injuries. It is amazing to see how the players have improved during the course of the 2016 season. We are excited to see their games against Sarel Cilliers next Saturday!

All our netball teams travelled to Newcastle on Wednesday in order to play their games due to the netball trials that took place in Durban on Saturday. u/14B won 9-2, u/14 A lost 5-9, u/15A lost 4-16, u/16A lost 7-17, 2nd team lost 12-14, 1st team drew 17-17.
On Friday, 20 May, two avid golfers, Keagan and Joshua Donaldson, travelled to Vryheid to compete in the first school’s golf league in our district. They played exceptionally well and managed to win the division that they took part in. They had a wonderful day where they were able to develop new friendships and compete in a sport that many learners don’t have the privilege to be exposed to. Well done you two! Thanks to Kevin Donaldson, who supported his sons and took them to VCC. It is always refreshing to see parents who support their children in their sporting ventures. We are excited to see what the 2016 golfing season will produce. Maybe we have a young McIlroy in our midst.
