Swimming

The record breakers. Below, Mr Bridger congratulates the swimmers who broke records in Friday’s Interhouse Gala.

Mr Bridger, Daniel Eagar, Tyler le Sar, Thembisile Magudulela, Ruan Leonard, Quentin Brugnolo, Renè du Preez, Malose Mohlabi and Jana Leonard. Only three of the eight got the D6 message to wear green to school on Monday.

The first Monday of every month is also provincial and SA colours day where those learners who have achieved these honours are invited to wear their colours to school in place of uniform. Daniel and Ruan chose to honour the Boks instead of invoking their right. Good choice, Guys!

Rugby World Cup

 These learners got the D6 message about wearing green. Here they show their joy at the William Webb Ellis Trophy coming home to South Africa for the next four years.

If you are not connected to the new version of th eD6, you will inevitably be missing messages like this one, which was cobbled together over the weekend. The answer is pretty simple – come and see Cornè to get connected/transferred.

Grade 11 Leadership Camp

This annual event was held at Hillside, property of Craig and Trish Pidduck. The Pidducks have generously allowed the Academy the use of their bush camp over many years, and it has proven to be the perfect venue for Leadership and Guppy Camps. Thank you, Craig and Trish.

A very big Thank You is due to Mr Roth who organized and led the camp and took care of our Grade 11’s while they were in the bush.

Joshua Hein and Ryan Briggs seat themselves on high, whilst Quinn Harmse and Ann-Jenica van Coller are just a little more cool.
