PLEASE NOTE: This programme is under review for 2017

Our school participates in the Helderberg Zonal League.  The schools involved in this league are from Somerset West and surrounding areas (Strand, Gordon’s Bay, Macassar, Stellenbosch etc.).  Our aim is to make sure that as many of our teams participate in matches on Thursday afternoons.  However, this is often difficult as some schools have fewer teams in certain age groups than we do and this would mean that, on occasion, some of our teams will not play a match on a particular week.  We have also found that the A teams participate on a more regular basis than the B and C teams.

The netball league involves children from U7 through to U13. League matches take place on Wednesday afternoons.  We make every effort to make sure that all of our teams participate in the weekly matches, but not all schools have both an A and a B team available in all age groups. The girls that are not chosen that week have a normal practice session on our courts on a Wednesday.

We feel that rugby is a sport that is critical in boosting the physical and psychological development of our boys. There is a lot of hype and emotion that surrounds the sport, so we have taken the decision to run rugby in way which will suit our own interests best. We are involved in the Western Province rugby league, where matches take place on Wednesday afternoons.  We also try to organize our own fixtures against teams of our own strength as well as against touring teams.

Cross Country
Cross country is new to the sports programme. At present, the children participate in the Helderberg league, where races are hosted on Friday afternoons. The races are held at various venues around the Somerset West / Helderberg area.
