With the recent conclusion of the girls’ indoor season it seems fitting to recognise some learner achievements. Andrea Leader, the First team captain, was chosen as part of the Pro Series Indoor (PSI) southern zone U18A team. Sydney Jacobs, Grade 10, was chosen for the U18B team. Nikita Dawood, our goalkeeper, was selected for the U16B team as well as playing for the 3rd side at national at the end of last year, and the 2nd side at All Stars in March. Well done to our indoor hockey girls!
Today we launched our fund-raising drive for the hockey Astroturf that we will start building later this month. We have a fund-raising target of R500 000, which is a huge challenge, but one we can meet together as the full school community. We already have R50 000 towards this goal!
Pinelands High School was privileged to host the SA woman’s hockey team yesterday.
Ms Shelley Russell and Ms Jade Mayne, who have collectively played over 300 matches internationally, addressed the school during a motivational assembly. They spoke on the importance of participating and being actively involved within diverse areas of the school. They challenged the students to practise good time management and to focus on achieving excellent academic results.
