Gr 7 Afrikaans Leeskompetisie

November 6, 2018


Eight of our very best Grade 7 pupils tested their reading skills at Herbert Hurd’s annual Grade 7 Afrikaans Leeskompetisie.

Afrikaans background music set the tone as the Grade 7 learners were leading in. Competitors and supporters alike enjoyed “Zackie Mostert en die Super Aaklige Soen” by Jaco Jabobs: an entertaining story about a boy who will come up with every excuse not to kiss a girl in the school play.

We were very honoured to have Mrs Deyzel and Mrs Henwick , two experienced teachers from the neigbouring Laerskool Newtonpark, as judges. 


After a tension-filled competition, Jordan Lindoor walked away with the trophy and an Exclusive Books voucher to the value of R200. A big thank you to Exclusive Books Walmer Park for their continued support of this reading initiative for the last four years.

Congratulations to all the participants who made it to the final round and a big thank you to all the parents who supported their children on the day!
