The New Year is upon us, goals have been set and a lot awaits the boys and girls. Well come back to everyone and we hope that all the achievements and records of 2013 will be broken and improved on this year. Term one will again see our prestigious and exiting Night Challenge take place and this will commence on the 31st of January. This tournament offers the different boys and girls an opportunity to play netball and cricket under lights and compete against the best of the best in their age group category. Thousands of parents and family members will be coming through to watch and support the boys and girls as they compete and a lot of fun will be had by young and old.

We will also see our swimming team competing against other schools and individual swimmers trying to better their times in the water. Montrose will again be hosting their exiting Night Gala which will afford our swimmers the opportunity to swim under lights.

We will also be having Water Polo, Tennis, Drama, Dance, Marimba and Choir as some of the extra-murals offered in Term one.

Our Rugby boys will be taking part in a tournament during the April holidays and we hope that they will enjoy it and win some trophies for the school

Term two will kick off with our exiting Night Soccer Challenge which offers our boys and girls an opportunity to play soccer under lights and then followed by that will be the start of our local soccer and netball league. The different soccer boys and girls will also take part in the Knockout competition and compete against some of the best teams from all over Gauteng. Last year our First team soccer boys and girls reached the finals of the competition and we hope that this year they will go all the way and win the competition.

Third Term will see our boys and girls joining the athletics team and also taking part in Hockey. Last year our Athletics team won their local league and went further on to take part in the Champions of Champions which sees five top schools compete with each other to be crowned number one. Unfortunately we came a very close second and we hope to win it this year. Our Hockey teams also did very well with our U11 team winning their local league.

We will again be hosting our prestigious Night Hockey tournament which will offer all those who take part in it an opportunity to play this game under lights.

Our boys will again be taking part in Rugby and as this will be our second year playing this game, we hope to improve on last Year’s achievements.

In the fourth Term we will see our boys and girls taking part in Cricket, Swimming and Water Polo. There’s a lot of exiting times ahead of us,”so boys and girls, all the best for the Year.”
