Sports News 18 November 2020

Sport sessions are being enjoyed by those learners who have signed up. It is wonderful to have some action taking place around the campus, on the Netball and Tennis courts as well as on the astro.

The Sports Department would like to invite you to join us on a Zoom call on Monday 30 November from 17:00 – 18:00. We wish to share with you what the Sports Department at Rustenburg have been busy planning for 2021 and beyond. We will also try to answer any questions you may have. To register for this meeting please click on the link below.

Biathlon: Skye Micklethwaite (Grade 8)

Skye just gets faster and faster – Skye won the U15 WP Biathlon league event in a very competitive age group. She swam the 100m in 01:05.08 and ran the 1000m in 3:25.74. She scored 2274.5 points and achieved a personal best result. 

Vivienne Banks (Grade 10)

We are proud to be associated with the Ons Plek fun run by way of a current Grade 10 learner, Vivienne Banks. Vivienne is a Scout and is organising this event as part of her Springbok Community Service Fundraising project.

This is what Vivienne has to say:

‘The objective for this project is to raise funds and awareness for Ons Plek Projects. I am aiming to raise at least R3000 once expenses have been subtracted. This money will go towards supporting a teacher at one of their projects in Philippi for a month.

“Ons Plek meaning Our Place, is the only residential Child and Youth Care Centre in Cape Town that specialises in developmental and therapeutic intake services for girls who have lived, worked or begged on the streets of Cape Town.”

One of the Ons Plek homes is situated just up the road from where I live, and we have donated clothes and other items to them for many years. I really admire the work that takes place at Ons Plek and I would like to continue supporting it so that it might be possible for those girls to have some of the experiences that I so often take for granted. This will also give my patrol, the Sables, and the Kestrel patrol an opportunity to learn new skills.’

Please see the flyer below and support Vivienne in this very worthwhile cause.
