TWC Senior School Choir participate at regional ATKV Competition

The TWC Senior School Choir participated in the regional ATKV Competition last Monday, winning a Silver Medal.  The criteria for this was to sing a programme including two Afrikaans songs, another South African language song and an own choice song.

Under Choirmistress and Conductor Judith Hawthorn, the choir has worked hard to adapt and adjust to new ways of making music with very pleasing results.  The girls were complemented on their energy and engagement with the music, and for embracing the challenging Afrikaans repertoire.  "They were out of their comfort zone, but the girls rose to the challenge and look forward to performing on more occasions in the future in order to get really relaxed in front of an audience."

TWC First Team Netball girls great achievement




On Friday 29 March when the rest of the school went on holiday, the 12 girls who would be representing the school at the St Andrew’s Netball Festival started their holiday by coaching and looking after the teams at our TWC U13 Sports Festival.  After a very exhausting weekend and an April fool’s joke that backfired on the team, everyone was ready and excited to start the tour, some being a bit more nervous than others as 8 out of the 12 players made their debut for the team. 

The days leading up to the festival are always a mixture of fun, and of course some netball.   The girls won their two warmup matches against St Peter’s and Uplands and enjoyed a day at Gold Reef City, some learning the lesson that it’s not great playing netball in wet shoes. 

The Festival started on Thursday, and after a nervous start, the girls managed to win their first game.
The girls then went on to win 6 out of their 7 pool matches and went into the Championship Section of the Festival.

At the end of 4 days and 13 matches, the team were placed 5th out of 32 teams - a great achievement for such a young team. 

We would like to thank all the parent for their support, from hosting the girls, shouting from the side of the court and giving them that little extra love when they were mentally and physically exhausted but still had to go and play again.  The girls would not have been able to achieve such a great result without you and your support for the girls and coaching staff is greatly appreciated!
