2017 All Girls’ Schools’ Sports and Cultural Tour

allgirlslogo-300x300The National All Girls’ Schools Sports and Cultural Festival was inaugurated by Wynberg and Rustenburg and Wynberg Girls’ High schools in 1999, and this year celebrated its 18th consecutive year over the weekend from 27-30 April. Hosted by Afrikaans Hoër Meisieskool in Pretoria this year, the theme was Beyond#.

Certainly the bar was raised in the opening ceremony with guest artists Freshlyground entertaining the girls in the Aula Auditorium at the University of Pretoria. The weekend provided the 22 participating schools with a wide variety of well-organised sporting competitions and cultural workshops throughout the weekend.

This year, Wynberg was represented by our Netball team and as a pre season series of games, this festival provided them with an extraordinary opportunity to pit themselves against the finest netball players in our country’s school. The games brought with them many memorable moments, exposure to astonishing skill sets, and “girlpower” that was inspirational.  It was a time of playing hard: muscles and bodies ached with the effort, but our team were certainly provided with opportunities for learning and friendship that were unrivalled.

Thanks to Mrs Williams and Robynn, our coaches, who accompanied us on the tour.
