Our First Ever Head Boy and Head Girl
After a lengthy selection process, we were in a position at our assembly today, to announce the first ever Head Boy and Head Girl of Waterberg Academy.
Our three athletes competed in Polokwane last Saturday. Michael Fourie placed 4th in discus – sadly he was unable to get in a throw as good as his best distances in previous weeks. This is the challenge in these skills based events.
Charmaine Rachele won the Bronze Medal in her long jump with a personal best of 4,56m. We wait to hear whether this distance qualifies her for the SA Schools Competition. This is Charmaine’s second visit to the Provincial competition. It is also her first podium finish, and it is the first podium finish ever in provincial athletics for the Academy.
Boitumelo Mataboge placed 4th in the 200m, but his time of 22,47 sec qualifies him for the SA Schools Competition.
This is the face of the future of athletics at Waterberg Academy. Morghan Posthumus shows off her Victrix Ludorum trophy from the Klein Vyf Athletics. I have heard that she is pretty good in the swimming pool as well.
Now comes the burning question: who does she take after – Mom or Dad?
Saturday saw our boarders descending upon Boschdraai to enjoy a day as a typical Waterberg lodge visitor. They jumped on the trampoline, they played volleyball with their teachers, and they swam in the lovely cool pool afterwards. Some of the boys took charge of the braai fire and boerewors rolls were served by the Hospitality Studies department.
