This issue of the Buzz once again highlights the involvement and achievements of our learners and staff. I am especially pleased to acknowledge Ms Gibbs, a final year intern teacher, and Mr Wesson, our estate foreman, who have both recently achieved important milestones.

Ms Gibbs has been elected to the Western Cape Aquatics (WCA) Federation’s executive committee, representing the WCSAA. This is an incredible achievement for one so young and her appointment is just reward for her drive, commitment and passion in everything she does. Her election also brings much needed gender and youth balance on the committee. Ms Gibbs is a leader and doesn’t shy away from hard work. She is a “can-do” person who believes there is nothing she “can’t do”. We are incredibly happy to have her on our staff and as a young woman who is excelling in everything she finds herself involved in, she is a role model for our young learners at school.

Mr Wesson is a champion table tennis player at club and provincial level. He has for several years now coached young people in the sport as a means of getting some of them off the streets by giving them an alternative to a life of struggle. He also coaches our table tennis learners and this enables them to see our estate staff in a positive light. We are incredibly proud of Mr Wesson’s recent achievements in the SA National Veterans Championships held in Bloemfontein recently. Both in the team and individual events Mr Wesson was amongst the medals.

Our junior sports tour was, as usual, the highlight of the year for our junior sportswomen and men. There is nothing like a good tour to bond young people together and to give them opportunities to experience. Whilst in might not have been the most suc-cessful tour on the field, the off field camaraderie was fantastic and many positive memories were made. Thanks to our staff and sponsors for helping to make this tour happen.

Every year for the past few years Joshua and Cameron have been Bergvliet High’s only entrant in the Inter Schools Southern Charter Sailing competition. As lone representatives against the boys’ schools which have many more entrants, these two lads achieve podium finishes every time. They took line honours in their class and were placed second overall to a strong Ocean View crew. No mean achievement for our intrepid sailors. Will we see them winning the Round the World yacht races one day? Who knows? With these two boys the sky is the limit.
