We have continued to use the UJ tennis courts as our ‘home base’ and it has been a good move. We have access to five courts that are close, safe and well maintained.
This term we played against St Mary’s and Roedean. We had one fun squad afternoon with St Katharine’s at the Country Club. It is not a competitive inter schools tennis term as such, so we have had plenty of time for overall game improvements. This has definitely paid off, as the girls have raised their level of both singles and doubles playing.
We are now in the process of playing our championship matches. We play in two sections: the juniors play up to Grade 5 and the seniors play between the Grade 6 and 7 girls. So far, we have played a Round Robin to finalise the seeding for the knock out phase of our play. We have started the knock out and will also start our doubles section.
We do hope for cool and rainy weather only after 17:00, so we can complete our championships successfully.

Inter House Sports Day
Sports day raced off at 08:00 on Saturday 28 September. The ‘professional’ Grade 7 dancers from St Andrew, St George and St Patrick started with the first event, followed by the Grade 0 events. The dances were very entertaining and a pleasure to watch.
The races were completed speedily and after the final race, the moment that everyone had worked so hard for, arrived – the scores. St George WON! The spirit trophy went to St Patrick. Everyone tried their utmost best and had tremendous fun at the same time. Thank you to all the girls and staff for the effort and hard work.
