Grade 7 Leeskompetisie

Eight of our very best Grade 7 pupils tested their reading skills at Herbert Hurd’s annual Grade 7 Afrikaans Leeskompetisie that was held in the Media Centre on Tuesday, 30 April. 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 Jacobs: an entertaining story about a boy who will come up with every excuse not to kiss a girl in the school play in front of ALL the people. We were very honoured to have one of our previous teachers at our school, Mrs Potgieter, as our judge. We would also like to thank Mr Jenneker for keeping the story going throughout the competition.

Congratulations to Siyaam Shaw who walked away with the trophy after a tension-filled competition.

Congratulations to all the participants: Jordan Wait, Sophie Glibbery, Tauqeer Jappie, Jade Fuller, Holly Hodgkinson, Siyaam Shaw, Carlin Rautenbach and Eznia Liesering who made it to the final round and a big thank you to all the parents who supported their children on the day.
