ATHLETICS
2017: We kicked off the Athletics season with our annual Interhouse competition. This is the first year that our boys competed in their House shirts and it certainly added to the overall success of the day. There were some memorable performances. Blake Raw broke the record in the U10 100m and Siphosethu Toyis broke the U17 High Jump record. From this event, 12 primary boys were selected to compete at the zonal meeting held at Despatch Sports Grounds, where Blake Raw was selected as the best U10 boy in the 100m. There were 26 senior boys who were selected to compete at the district meeting held at Daniel Pienaar. The outcome of this meeting resulted in the following boys being selected for: the district meeting for Primary boys : Blake Raw and Jonathan Witter the Metro Championships for High Schools at the Westbourne Oval: Liyema Moni; Jade Breda; Gershin Williams; Sherwin Stokes; Simamkele Dlala; Stern Transell; Crewin Barnard; Bunolothando Plaatjie; Sinethemba Nkombisa; Siphostehu Toyis; Azola Dlala; Nande Vandala; Athenkosi Hlonyane and Sibulele Mzinzi.
