Inspiring assembly from the Sports Pillar

There were some very inspiring thoughts from the Sports Pillar in their special assembly in the Honours Quad on Thursday as Ms Hudson-Windsor spoke to the school about the value of breaking the “Me First” thought processes. This marked the start of what proved to be an occasion of celebrating the very best in our school: our First Aiders, who have given hours of their time on the sides of the sports fields to provide medical care in the case of injury – an exemplifying of our motto Honour before Honours. Winter Sports Teams formed a tunnel of Honour for them to walk through, and then presented all with gifts to thank and acknowledge them for their support and medical expertise.

The spotlight was then on those who had achieved in a number of disciplines: certificates, half colours, colours and medals were awarded to those who had done particularly well in the winter sports.

Mrs Kourie awarded certificates to those who had participated in the English Olympiad in March this year, and Mrs Smith followed on with issuing certificates to a newly qualified group of Level 1 First Aiders and finally Ms Hudson presented awards and medals to the DanceSport girls who had made the National Team in the tournament held in Johannesburg.
