Sports News and Results 19 April 2018

  • The winter sports calendar and match fixtures are on the RGHS website
  • TUCKSHOP – the Sports Department is urgently needing Hockey and Netball parents’ help: (parents who have a daughter who has been included in a Hockey or Netball team for the 2018 season)
  1. A Mum and/or Dad to offer to take over the running/organisation of the Sports tuckshop. This will involve ensuring that there is sufficient stock for Sale at Sports events hosted on campus as well as arranging a roster of helpers at each of these events.
  2. Parents who are willing to do a tuckshop duty when their daughter’s are involved in the Hockey or Netball matches. We will schedule you in so that your tuckshop duty happens before your daughter’s match (while she is warming up).

Please send me an email (scottr@rghs.org.za) if you can assist in one of the 2 ways above.
