RGHS 1st Team vs St Cyprians
Goal scorer Jacqueline Sissons (Gr 12)
In a very fast match, the girls played well in parts. We put ourselves under pressure by trying to play as quickly as St Cyprians, which resulted in making careless errors. RGHS scored first and did well to hold out St Cyprians who had a penalty corner advantage of 5 to our nil. Their goal was scored off their second last penalty corner.
Players of the match: Jacqueline Sissons and Caroline Schreiber (Gr 12) who was excellent in the goals.
RGHS 2nd Team vs St Cyprians
This team is very exciting to watch. For such a young side, they show enormous promise which is great to see. We had more of the possession but could not score, even though we earned 4 penalty corners without reply.
Player of the match: Azrah Dick (Gr 9) who was excellent in defense.
RGHS 3rd Team vs St Cyprians
Score: RGHS 0 St Cyprians 7
On Friday, 2 February, we held our annual Inter-House Gala. After weeks of dry and hot sunshine the weather changed. We found ourselves holding our gala in a steady, but fine drizzle. The gala became a real celebration of rainfall, swimming, singing, cheering and bonding with one another.
Daniella Solkow (Gr 11) was the sole record breaker on the day. She swam the 100m Individual Medley in a new record time.
The Grade 11s won the fiercely contested Inter-Grade relay and the Staff Team won another fiercely contested relay between the Prefects, House Captains, First Water Polo Team and Sports Captains.
The House captains did a fabulous job of involving all members of their houses. The Ground staff should be thanked for setting up the pool area as they did. Photographers and First Aiders were present and added to the wonderful atmosphere of inclusivity.
The Inter-House trophy is always hotly contested, so too are the age-group champion trophies.
