Winning Gold & Silver at the South African Rowing Champs 2020

“Race day had come. Roodeplaat dam was overloaded with hundreds of tents and people all hungry to row. I was nervous and scared, my heart couldn’t stop pumping. My coach gave me the talk before I went out and he said, ‘Prove the nay-sayers wrong! Show them who you are and what you can do.’ As I approached the green, slimey waters, I entered my boat, hands quivering, head shaking and I said, ‘Let’s have at it!’” T.J. Gwaziwa

Interhouse Plays 2020

Earlier this term the girls put on their annual Interhouse Plays. The girls worked hard and hopefully learned much about how to improve their craft in the future. They should be proud of their efforts – some very real talent was evident on stage!

Two girls: Franchesca Chunhundu (Eland) and Tanya Kurenzvi (Sable) even took on the task of writing original plays for their respective Houses. They in particular should be given much commendation. Credit will definitely be given in the adjudication process for such efforts in the future.

Congratulations to Kudu who won the competition and were therefore the recipients of the Baxter Trophy for the Best Play Overall. Kudu also won the Laing Cup for Best Technical Production.
