PREP SWIMMING

Last week our Herschel Prep A squad swimmers were invited to swim in a Gala at the opening of the Reddam House Somerset West Aquatic Centre. It was an exciting event as the winners of the events were presented with certificates from Ryk Neethling!

The girls competed in Freestyle and Medley Relays from U7 – U14 and our girls swam exceptionally well and placed as follows in the 2 events in their age groups:
U7s (3rd); U8s (2nd); U9s (1st); U10s (1st); U11s (2nd); U13s (2nd) and U12s (2nd Freestyle Relay, 1st in Medley Relay).

It was great for our swimmers to be back in the pool after the drought and we are very proud of them!

School Song

We are assembled here in love,
We are united, we care for one another.
The greatest lesson of all is the one
That teaches us to live together, together.

Refrain:
Everyone’s a spark and in the night
Together we make a light, a fire burning bright
Ad Dei Gloriam; Inkosi mayibongwe:
To the glory of our God: this is what we believe.

In times of trouble we support
Our fellows; we are taught to be there for our friends.
And all around us, there will be
That special unity, that binds us all together.

If we come back after many years,
We will think fondly of the things that we remember,
And the friends that we made then,
These will be friends forever, forever.

By Thandi Siebert, Head Girl 1993
