On the Road Again...
After two years, Summerwood Primary School sport teams are on the road again. This adventure almost alludes to the song, "On the Road Again", by Willie Nelson. He sings, "On the road again, just can't wait to get on the road again, ... going places places that I've never been, seeing things that I may never see again, I can't wait to get on the road again ..."
Sixty learners and six coaches embarked on a sport journey to the Hartenbos area. They resided at the Dutch Reformed Church Youth Centre in Hartenbos. Summerwood Primary School Sport Director, Mr J. Smit said, "The accommodation is good and the food is delicious."
The first teams are competing in various sport codes. These are: boys and girls hockey, netball and rugby. The opposing teams are from the following primary schools: Plettenberg Bay Primary School, Hartenbos Primary School, Park Primary School (Mossel Bay) and Holy Cross Primary School (George). "These schools were selected because they are just as competitive as Summerwood Primary School," said Mr Smit.
The following teachers accompany the players on the tour: Ms T. Botha, Ms T. Nortje, Ms M. le Roux, Mr W. Shaw, Mr S. Watkins and Mr J. Smit.
The School is grateful for all the training sessions and matches during this eventful week. Gary Player once said, "The more I practise, the luckier I get."
