Mountain Biking

We had an awesome family time at the Lindani on Saturday. The farm was beautiful, as always, and the weather was perfect for mountain biking. Carla was 2nd Girl and 3rd Woman in the 35km, Bradley was first U/14 Boy in the 35km, and Daniel was second U/12 Boy in the 15km. Well done, Guys!

Mountain Biking 18 May

Our mountain bikers went to Haenertsburg on the 18th of May to ride in a leg of the Limpopo Cross Country Series.  Carla Jansen van Vuuren came 2nd in the U/14 Girls, Bradley Eagar came 5th in the U/14 Boys group and Ethan Gualdi was 7th. Daniel Eagar was 4th in the U/12 boys’ group. Gianmarco Gualdi was 17th Nipper Boy. A major cause for excitement in the Academy contingent was Josua Badenhorst’s 1st place among the littlies (sub nippers). Herein lies the future strength of mountain biking at Waterberg Academy.

May your first slice of glory make you train all the harder, Josua!

Mid-Year Examinations

The High School started with their mid-year exams last week Thursday, and the Senior Preparatory began on Tuesday of this week.

Backdrop

The backdrop on the stage continues to take shape, not under the hand of Mrs Mason this time as erroneously reported in last week’s newsletter, but rather through the skills of Ms Forster-Towne with the input of the two Pre Preparatory ladies, Mrs Leonard and Mrs van Dyk. We all look forward to the Foundation Phase play which takes place early next term.

Grade Three

You probably remember doing French knitting when you were young. These young ladies took to it with alacrity and were snapped today knitting up a storm in the recently decorated classroom.
