TUCKSHOP

Thank you to the 4 Mums who have offered to assist with tuckshop duty when we host sporting fixtures at Rustenburg. Please see the continued plea below:

The Sports Department is urgently needing parents’ help: The following plea is aimed at parents who have a daughter who has been included in a Hockey or Netball team for the 2018 season. 

  • 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.  
  • 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 if you can assist in one of the 2 ways above.

SPORTS RESULTS

CROSS COUNTRY 

On Wednesday 18 April Rustenburg entered 5 teams of 3 runners in the first fun Cross Country relay event of the season. We travelled to Fish Hoek in the pouring rain. The girls competed in the pouring rain and enjoyed every minute of getting wet and dirty. One of the RGHS teams placed first girls’ team. The girls all ran exceptionally well, being pulled along by their team mates.

The first League race is to be held at Rondebosch Boys’ High School On Wednesday 2 May. We encourage all our Cross Country girls to enter this event as it is a fast, flat and easy course.
