CBHS Newsletter 2 - Feb '11

Dear Parents

Inter-house Athletics:
On Wednesday we held our Inter-House Athletics Day. Yellow House walked away with the Spirit Cup, while Red House won the day on points. It was a most enjoyable day. Over 80% of our pupils competed in a track, or field event. The heat did not prevent our pupils turning in some top performances.

Swimming Camp

The Swimming Camp was held at Camps Bay High School on the 28th and 29th January. Over 30 swimmers used this camp to launch their training for the swimming season. Traditionally the camp is held in Ceres, where we use their 50m pool for training. Sadly at the last minute we learned that this pool was closed and hence had to make an alternate plan. For a change the swimmers had some training on Saturday in the mountains above Gordons Bay. A big thanks to the teachers who ran the camp, namely Mr Cottle, Ms Mobsby, Ms Ricketts and Ms Parker. Thanks also to Mr de Korte for driving the bus, and Mrs Cronje for the wonderful catering.

Grade 8 Camp
Over the weekend of the 4th – 6th February, 125 new Grade 8’s, 22 prefects and 10 teachers travelled out to Onrus for the Grade 8 Camp. The weather was wonderful, and the campers were kept busy with team building exercises and talks. The aim of the camp is to get the Grade 8’s into the Camps Bay School system, and their different houses. All the activities are run in house groups. Over the weekend many new friends were made. On the bus trip home everyone seemed to fall asleep.

2010 School Magazine
Grade 9 – 11 parents should now be in possession of the 2010 school magazine. We issue the magazine in the following year as this allows us time to include the Matric results (issued on 6th January 2011). The magazine is a stunning record of the 2010 school year. Through the copy and the pictures many happy memories were captured. A big thanks to Mr Cunliffe and his editorial team, and to Mr Roussopoulos, our resident photographer for producing this magazine. The Grade 8’s who attended Camps Bay Primary school must go to the school to collect their 2010 magazine. Any Grade 12’s or their parents who want this school magazine must come and collect them at the school. This is definitely a document you will keep.

Interhouse Gala: Invitation to Parents

On Tuesday 15th February we will hold our Interhouse Gala. The gala will start at 12h15 in our pool and all parents are welcome to attend. We will have seating for you, however you will be in the sun so a hat and suncream are essential. We will start the gala off with a few words to open our new pool for the year.


TENNIS (Girls)

Saturday 5th February vs Westerford
Camps Bay batted first and scored 126 runs. Imran Mazema scored 30 runs and Dylan Meek 31. Westerford batted and passed Camps Bay’s score with 5 wickets down. Kyle Horn and Ntsiha Shushu bowled well to restrict Westerford early on in the innings. A good performance in general against a Premier League side.

Dominic Seeber competed in Serbia from the 12th to 21st December 2010 against 26 pupils from 12 countries in the Junior Olympic level. Dominic was placed 15th and came in the Top 6 on the T Bar pummel. Well done Dominic!

Dylan Adriaens is taking part in the SAKT (South African Kite tour) which is a professional South African kiting competition for professional and novice Kite boarders around the Country. Dylan is competing in the professional division as he is a sponsored rider by Slingshot kites. Dylan is the youngest sponsored professional rider taking part in this tour. He is competing against all age groups and riders who do the International competing circuit, so the competition is really tough. Dylan’s position in the competition thus far is in the top 10 in South Africa.

He is competing in all three disciplines course racing, wave riding and free style events, with the following schedule:
13-14 November : Durban
20 – 21 November Langebaan
11-12 December : Port Elizabeth
18 – 19 December Cape Town (Big Bay)
End February 2011: to be confirmed

Being in his position, he needs to practice, like any other sport, to do his best. When there is wind, he practices in the afternoons at Kite beach in Table View or Big Bay. (± 2-3 hours per day). When there is no wind he goes to the Virgin Active Gym in Gardens to build up his upper body strength.

22nd World Scout Jamboree, Sweden, 2011 – 18th July – 10th August 2011

The World Organisation of the Scout Movement is the largest non-formal education youth movement in the world with more than 30 million members in 150 countries.
Every four years scouts from almost every country in the world gather to contribute to building a better world. These events, held each time in a different country, are called World Scout Jamborees and the next one will be held in Rinkaby, Sweden from 27th July to 7th August 2011.
World Jamborees are special events because they bring together tens of thousands of young people from many different cultures, socio-economic backgrounds and countries in solidarity and in promoting world peace. More than 30,000 Scouts are expected in Sweden this year! For the young people who participate in a Jamboree, it is an experience of a lifetime! These Scouts return home inspired and motivated, ready to become future leaders both in Scouting and within their local communities.

Through Jamborees, Scouting shows the world that the impossible is possible. We learn to build a world where people care about one another and the environment, a world of dialogue, friendship and co-operation; a world of peace.

Congratulations to Abdul Malik Akiemdien who has been selected to represent South Africa at this event.
