Hermannsburg happenings

HERMANNSBURG’S quiz team joined teams from Michaelhouse, St Anne’s, St John’s, Hilton College, Treverton and Grace College for the Grade nine and 10 inter-schools general knowledge quiz, hosted by Michaelhouse.

Hermannsburg was well-represented with a total of four teams, participating in all the rounds until the sudden-death round.

Thank you to Michaelhouse for organising the event and treating the teams with goodie bags, delicious eats and hot chocolate.

Thank you to Cheryl Ruthven for organising and accompanying the pupils.

Our sports fields echoed with the enthusiastic supporters’ shouts of encouragement last Saturday as Bushbuck and Reedbuck took to field and track for the annual inter-house athletics meeting.
