Fun with Norman Henshilwood High School

On Saturday, 29th October 2011 we braved the rain and had an outside broadcast at Norman Henshilwood High School (NHHS) in Constantia. The school had an inter-class touch rugby competition, where the pupils competed against each other.

The pupils, teachers and parents were kept entertained by Bush Radio 89.5FM, with Lusanda Bill as the host of special broadcast.

David Millar, principal at NHHS, said they “thought it would be a great opportunity for the school and the community to come together at a school sports day to celebrate the opening of their new West Campus.

The WCED (Western Cape Education Department) decided to build the West Campus at NHHS because it is a school of excellence and has a good academic history”.

Fun and games on the field

The competition was between grade 8s up to grade 11s, and in order to have a team each class had to choose six pupils to represent their class and compete against the other grades. The game allowed each team six touches per side and whoever runs to the goal post without being touched scored a point.

Courtney Delaney, NHHS deputy chairperson of the Learner Representative Council (LRC) said: “Today we are building relationships with each other through the inter-class rugby competition.”

Celebrating a fun day

The chairperson was asked how she felt about being the head girl at NHHS; “It is exciting being the chairperson, I am feeling the pressure but I do get the support from the school because it is one of the best schools you can get and we are one big family,” said Shabnam Hoosen, chairperson of the LRC.

Shandre Otto, deputy principal at NHHS said: “Thank you to all teachers and pupils who put this event together, and said to Bush Radio 89.5FM. We hope to have more of Bush Radio at NHHS.”

Isherene Siebritz, Bush Radio Marketing volunteer said the event was a success and “the community came together to celebrate the beginning of the new school”.
