On Thursday 8th June Brian Nhira graced us with a concert in the chapel. He was the Zimbabwean star of “The Voice” where he sang “Happy” in front of Pharell Williams who selected him for his team. He is a successful YouTube star and writes, records and performs his own music. It was a wonderful experience for the girls who stayed behind for “selfies” and autographs from him. He also conducted some vocal workshops in the afternoon which were of great use to the aspiring singers at both schools.

At Arundel: we came 12th out of 23 schools

This was held on the 7th of June. All entries were read very well and the extracts were well chosen. The four top readers were given an extract which they had one minute to prepare and then they had to read it in front of the adjudicator. The winner was Deborah Davy. Many thanks go to Mrs van Heerden who judged the competition.

Menlopark U16 Hockey Tournament
15 girls and 2 members of staff travelled to Pretoria from the 5th to the 10th of April to take part in the Menlopark U16 Hockey Tournament. This is the first time the girls have participated in this tournament and they placed 4th overall. There were 10 high calibre participating schools, so to have come 4th is a great achievement.

Played 9, won 4, lost 2, drew 3, ranking us 4th in the log. The girls then played in one of 2 semi-finals, lost that match 0 - 6, and were automatically placed to play for bronze against the losers of the second semi-final. At full time the score was 0-0 which meant scores had to be settled on penalty shoot outs (the only one of the whole tournament!). The girls lost 3-0 on penalty shoot outs.
