Senior School Sports Results - Term 1 - Week 6


Athletics
Unfortunately, Luzaan de Wit felt ill and finished 2nd in the 800m at the Menlo Park meet and she withdrew from the 1500m.

However, Luzaan ran a new personal best at the PUMA speed event in Durban on 10 February and her time places her in the Top 10 World Rankings for 800m girls under 18 year-to-date.

She also participated at KZN Senior Athletics Meet in Durban on 23 February and secured a silver medal in the 800m Women’s Senior final - even though she is only under 17! Well done, Luzaan.


Canoeing
The results from last weekend’s inter-school race in Underberg held on a medium to full Umzimkulu River are as follows – all U16 age group:
2nd Georgie Howard

Grade 6's visit Nelson Mandela Capture site and Piggly Wiggly

Blog post submitted by Mariam Yacoob, Grade 6


On Friday 9 February we, the TWC grade 6 girls, enjoyed the experience of integrated learning at the Nelson Mandela Capture Site. It was a super-memorable experience. Ayanda, who is the guide of the Nelson Mandela Capture Site, took us through the museum and down to the sculpture. There, when standing in a specific position, 50 steel columns show you the image of Nelson Mandela’s face. The columns represent the 50 years from when he was captured until the time that they started building the sculpture.

After this, we went to Ms Marques’s classroom. Ms Marques did a lesson on the first democratic election in South Africa. We then travelled by bus to Piggly Wiggly. At Piggly Wiggly, we did a geography task focused on trade. We gave the shopkeepers questionnaires, which they were happy to answer. In the beginning, we were all very inquisitive. We have all learned so much. Everyone loved the experience and will never forget it. On 9 February 2018, learning was amazing.
