We will be holding internal WGJS netball and hockey matches this coming week. We have called the matches a “World Cup” tournament and our U9’s, U10’s and U11’s will be playing netball as representatives of a country, whilst our U12’s and U13’s will be the managers for the afternoon. This is a fun way for all our girls from different classes who love to play the same sport to come together as a community and get to know more learners in the school.
The combined Wynberg Girls’ and Boys’ team played two matches on Friday 11 September 2017. They beat Bishops thanks to the excellent skills of Emily Engel and Kelli Arendse. Unfortunately, they lost against WPPS. The combined chess team took part in a tournament at Bishops on Friday 15 September 2017. Kelli Arendse, Tejal Naicker and Emily Engel represented WGJS with pride and played very well.
It was a busy afternoon starting at 14h00 and ending at 16h30. The teams played four matches and won two of the four rounds. The results were as follows:
WBJS/WGJS beat Rondebosch
WBJS/WGJS beat Groote Schuur
WBJS/WGJS lost to Kirstenhof
WBJS/WGJS lost to Bishops.
It was a great way to end the match season. Well done on our results ladies. We are proud of you and look forward to another enjoyable tournament next year.

INTER – SCHOOLS “A” AND “B” HOCKEY TOURNAMENTS
The annual Inter – Schools U13A and U13B hockey tournaments took place at Western Province Cricket Club on 12th and 13th September 2017.
It was a thrill for our Wynberg girls to play hockey at such hallowed grounds against the backdrop of our beautiful mountains. We were blessed with the clear but chilly weather and both groups of extremely enthusiastic team players emerged from the bus on arrival at the tournaments full of enthusiasm and goodwill.
Inter Schools is always a hard competition against tough opponents and a gruelling fixture list, where teams play six twenty minute matches during the afternoon with little or no breaks in between. To do well in this competition format requires fitness, focus, efficiency in passing the ball and the ability to seize opportunities as and when they are presented. Above all, teamwork, a positive attitude, resilience and a “never give up” sense of determination are paramount.
Our girls from WGJS gave freely of themselves and their team spirit was evident throughout both tournaments. They followed the game plan and the process outlined by their coach and they played for their Wynberg badge with enormous pride. Above all, it was evident that they had so much fun with one another, playing a sport that they love. As a result of all of these factors, our players exceeded all expectations and our “A” team finished in 4th place with our “B” team earning a coveted 3rd place.
