Surf Lifesaving:

Hannah Hillman (Grade 12) competed at the South African Inter-Provincial Surf Lifesaving Championships on the weekend of 26 April in Durban. She competed in huge waves on a spring tide. Hannah placed second in Tube rescue as the racing patient, second in the Taplin relay and third in the Board relay. Hannah is congratulated on these outstanding results. Hannah even participated for another competitor that had injured herself in a previous race and did the surf swim too.

Overall, the Western Cape team came second out of six provinces that competed in these SA Inter-Provincials.
