Sports News and Results 18 March 2020

The SPORTS Programme for Terms 2 and 3 (WINTER) is on the RGHS website here.

  • All 2nd Term sport will resume as soon as school re-opens. We do hope that the sports girls keep up their fitness and stay safe while doing so.
  • During these very uncertain times we have cancelled the 6th edition of the U16 Champions Cup Hockey and Netball Tournament.
  • The much anticipated tour to Bloemfontein to participate in the National All Girls’ Schools Festival has also been cancelled.

We would like to acknowledge the girls who were selected to represent RGHS at this event. Thank you to the parents who supported their daughters’ selection too. The girls have worked tirelessly to be selected into the teams and we congratulate the following girls on this achievement:

On Sunday 8 March the newly elected U16A Team participated in the SPAR tournament held at DF Malan High School. In very trying conditions, including wind and sand storms, this team gave it their all. Coach Sasha was delighted with the improvements shown throughout the day. The organisers presented the Rustenburg Team with the ‘No Excuses’ Team Award. Robyn Biccard (Grade 9) was awarded the Most Promising Player award and Kelly Prowse (Grade 10) was awarded the Most Valuable Player award.

The results of their matches played are below:
