INTER-HOUSE ATHLETICS: A fabulous day was had by all on Saturday. Even though the morning was somewhat crisp, the sun soon warmed us all. Spirits were high with children running and pulling rope for the Tug-of-War with all their might! We have never had as many parents volunteering for the Moms’ and Dads’ races. The PVS star of the show was Mr Malinga, who streaked ahead to win the teachers’ race, followed by Mr Pugh and Miss Rogers. The awards were as follows:
Sumner Trophy for girls’ U12 400m: Ashleigh King
Myburgh Trophy for Snr boys’ 800m: Thube Ncube
Junior Victrix Ludorum: Sonia Mbowa and Fhulufhelo Nejelele
Junior Victor Ludorum: Owethu Khumalo and Sibu Masangane
Senior Victrix Ludorim: Monique Visser; Senior Victor Ludorum: Thube Ncube
The Spirit Cup was won by Hawks, who also won the Wooden Spoon for coming 4th!
The Boys’ Tug of War was won by Kestrels and the Girls’ Tug of War was won by Eagles. There was some really stiff competition for those finals!
A special Spirit cup was awarded to Mrs Meiring, for her unrelenting good spirit!
The final points were:
1st Eagles with 197; 2nd Kestrels with 194;
3rd Falcons with 185 and 4th Hawks with 140.
Well done to every child who participated by running, cheering, helping teachers and participating in the tug of war. We salute you!
