Afrikaans Spelathon 2019

Hannah Olarogun and Lindsay Jacobs

After some hard work and more than six hundred words later, eight girls set off on 5 August to Wynberg Boys’ High School to represent Rustenburg in the Afrikaans Spelathon. 

The girls were a bundle of nerves, but performed well against the likes of Wynberg Boys’ High School, Rhenish and De Kuilen. In the junior competition, Sarah Pengilly placed 3rd whilst seniors Hannah Olarogun and Lindsay Jacobs came 2nd and 3rd respectively. Hannah Olarogun will continue to the national rounds on 12 October. 

The participants had a wonderful time and we congratulate them for their courage in taking part as well as their impressive results.
