Prefects at Eventide
The prefects did their bit in terms of service to the community, by visiting the residents at Eventide, home for the old aged. There were many cheers and smiles as songs were sung, goodie bags were handed out and cupcakes were served. The prefects unanimously decided that they would love to spend an afternoon with the elderly and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. They pledged to visit the home again and were honoured when they were told that they were role models for other High School children.

Sport vs Amajuba
Girls Hockey - On Saturday, 27 May, the second team travelled to Amajuba to play their first team. The girls came home 3-2 victors.
The 1st team played a friendly exhibition game against previous first team girls. It was an exciting game with the current Spartans winning 2-1. It was a truly a wonderful experience seeing the field covered in red, black and white. Thank you to everyone who came to support and the old players for taking to the field again.

Sport is important for children. Not only does the old adage of a healthy body leads to a healthy mind ring true, but playing a team sport teaches discipline, determination, team work, communication and the value of hard work. For many of our learners, the winter sport season is an outlet and escape for the many pressures and hardships faced by the younger generation. We would like to thank every member of the community that has contributed to our children - may it be a small donation for a tour or a word of encouragement on the side of the field. You will never know the good you have done in the lives of these sport kids. We are so very grateful to all our sponsors who have contributed to kits, equipment and financial assistance. Rabco, Zinoju Coal, T-Shirts 4 Afrika, Fedauto, Evo Lubricants, Ismails, Docrats, Charlie's Superspar, Sharp Motors, Dundee Toyota, Dundee Bowls Club, Business League bowls players, Brian Taylor, Mpathi Apteek, Jacobs' Boerdery, Paulinah Truck Hire and Mrs Catlett. Thank you for making this sport season a success and we know our children have, and will continue, to wear your business name with pride. If any business would like to assist the school and make a difference in the lives of the sport kids, please feel free to contact us. Zorba, Colab, The Spartans and The Smurfs salute you.
