As we head off in our own directions for the next 5 weeks I’d like to remind all parents and learners of the online BELIEVE PERFORM platform. It is a Sport Psychology tool with hundreds of topics to advise, encourage and remind us that many of us share the same struggles and queries in life. If you don’t have access to this platform please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get you signed up immediately.
Below please find a few links to get you familiarized with the Believe Perform platform again. There are a few infographics around Mental Habits with the idea of ways to help you keep maintaining mental fitness while on holiday. There is also an infographic for when you return to school, feeling nervous after so much time away from Rustenburg. There is also an article on ‘sleep’ – reminding you just how important rest and recovery are for you.
- 9 positive mental health habits to try and maintain each week
- What to do if you feel nervous about returning back to school
- 10 things students can do to boost their mental fitness
- 10 tips for mental preparation
- Why it is important to set goals
- THE INFLUENCE OF SLEEP ON PERFORMANCE
We hope you find the above useful.

Skye Micklethwaite (Grade 8)
Skye is busy as always. She participated in a Netball tournament recently, and her team played exceptionally well, and although there were no scores taken, they convincingly won all their matches and enjoyed playing different positions throughout all the games which added to the excitement and made it all the more enjoyable.
Skye is also participating in the Western Cape Aquatics championships which are being held in Malmesbury from the 15-18 December and we wish her all the best.
RGHS COACHES achievements:
Sasha Sivertsen (RGHS 1st Squad Indoor Hockey Coach) has been selected to coach the U16 Seals (A team) at the PSI National Tournament from 20-22 December.
Sahsa was also a member of the WPCC Indoor Team that placed second in the Ladies 1st Indoor League.
Olu Ncukana (RGHS Sports Administrator) will be the Senior umpire at the Junior Schools PSI National Tournament. Olu will also be umpiring at the Senior National Tournament. We congratulate them both on these achievements and wish them both well.
Wishing all our Rustenburg learners and their families a well deserved holiday. Enjoy family time and remember that doing exercise together brings joy and wonderful feeling of well-being. Stay fit and safe out there.
