BELLVILLE HOSTS PRIMARY SCHOOL NETBALL TOURNAMENT

Op Vrydag, 13 April, het Eversdal se 0/12 en 0/13 dogters, deelgeneem aan ‘n Laerskole Netbaltoernooi by Bellville Hoërskool. Hierdie toernooi is ‘n perfekte platform om die spelers gereed te maak vir die besige seisoen wat voorlê.

Our Teams played five matches each, testing their fitness levels. The U/12 girls played matches against De Kuilen, Brackenfell, Mikro, Bastion and Gene Louw. Our U/13 girls played against Bellville North, Overberg, Brackenfell, Bastion and Gene Louw.

Die dogters het beslis hulle beste gelewer in elke wedstryd en só ook mekaar beter leer ken. Baie dankie aan ons getroue Ever-ouers wat van begin tot einde langs die baan was vir ondersteuning. Ons waardeer julle opreg.

In die foto spog ons 0/13 dogters met hulle nuwe wedstrydklere. Al die dogters, van beide spanne, het beslis Eversdal se naam hoog gehou!

Thank you for your wonderful behaviour and true sportmanship.

EVERSDAL MICROSOFT SHOWCASE SCHOOL EVENT

We are a Microsoft Showcase School!

On Tuesday afternoon we hosted a Microsoft Showcase School Event. Delegates from various schools attended the seminar on how Eversdal uses Microsoft in education. Not only did teachers and headmasters attend, but we were very privileged to welcome three senior WCED representatives. A word of gratitude to Dr Brand (Professional development), Mrs Christelle Barkhuizen (Chief Education Specialist for e-learning) and Mr Colin Morris (Directorate: e-learning) along with their E-learning advisers from Head Office and Districts North and East for attending the seminar.

The objective of the seminar was to share the e-learning and curriculum delivery philosophy of Eversdal. The following topics were discussed:

  • Classroom set up for technology integration.
  • Hardware requirements.
  • Microsoft Office 365.
  • OneNote Class set up and a practical demonstration.
  • Educator communities to collaborate with.

The seminar was a huge success with excellent feedback from attendees. The WCED representatives were full of praise for the excellent progress Eversdal has made over the past five years. We are excited about future developments and working together for the benefit of our learners.

STELLENBERG KWIKSPAR RUGBY DAYS

Aan die begin van die tweede kwartaal skop ons tradisioneel die rugbyseisoen af met ons jaarlikse A- en B-span rugbydae. Stellenberg Kwikspar het soos gewoonte nie geskroom om ons te ondersteun nie. On Wednesday afternoon the u/13 A teams played and on Thursday the u/13 B & u/11 B teams had their day. These rugby days are played in a fast and entertaining manner to the excitement of all the spectators. Matches last only 10 min. which make it possible to play different teams in quick succession.

Die formaat is baie suksesvol en gee geleentheid vir spanne om gerat te wees vir die seisoen. Soos ‘n besoeker-afrigter dit stel: “Nou is ek sommer weer opgewonde vir die seisoen.” Dankie aan al ons lojale ondersteuners. Ons sien uit na die 2018 rugbyseisoen.

GREY KOLLEGE RUGBYTOER

Tydens die Paasnaweek het Laerskool Eversdal se 1ste Rugbyspan weer saamgetrek op die tradisionele tog na Bloemfontein. Our rugby team participated in the Grey College Super Series. This tour is renound for very hard physical matches. Teams play four matches in four days.

Ons het op die eerste dag teen Laerskool Vastrap vasgeval in die laaste minute van die wedstryd. Ons Evers het pragtig die tweede wedstryd teen Laerskool Kruinsig gewen.

The third match was a very physical battle with Rooihuiskraal Primary School. We managed to grind out a close win. On the last day we played against Newton Primary School and played a beautiful expansive match to the excitement of all and ended the tour with a comfortable win.

Om drie uit vier wedstryde te wen ewenaar die beste vertoning van ons spanne oor die afgelope twee dekades. Ons is opgewonde oor die wyse waarop die seuns gespeel het. Baie dankie aan almal wat ver gereis het om die span te ondersteun.

VOEDSELFEES 2018

On 20 March 2018 Eversdal had their first ever Food Fair. It was indeed a night that you do not want to miss in future.

Elke graad het ‘n land getrek, en het volgens hierdie tema gewerk om heerlike kos by hul stalletjies te verkoop. Die klasse binne die graadgroep het ook saamgewerk en ‘n opvoering gehou.  Die toeskouers  kon terugsit en dit geniet terwyl hulle aan die heerlike kos smul.

Thank  you to every family member who came to enjoy the evening and support our school.  Most of all we thank all the Evers for their great spirit, we had so much fun.

 

 

U/14 BOYS KNYSNA HOCKEY TOUR

Die hokkiemanne het die afgelope Saterdag huiswaarts gekeer na drie dae van swoeg en sweet op die hokkieveld. Once again it was an amazing experience for the boys to participate in this festival.

Ons B-span seuns moes kragte meet teen A-spanne, maar het geensins teruggestaan vir die uitdaging nie. Congratulations to our A side boys who did not loose one match on tour.

Baie dankie vir die ondersteuning van ons ouers tydens die toer, dit word opreg waardeer.

GENE LOUW NETBALDAG

U/13 NETBALL GIRLS STORM INTO NEW NETBALL SEASON

Op Donderdag, 22 Maart, het ons 0/13 Netbaldogters deelgeneem aan Gene Louw se Netbal- en rugbydag te Stellenberg Hoërskool. Ons dogters was verskriklik opgewonde om die seisoen af te skop en wéér ‘n wedstryd te kan speel!

The U/13s played a total of three games against Durbanville, Gene Louw and Bastion, respectively. The games were tough, but our girls proved themselves worthy in their performance. From this experience, we take away a few lessons in preparation for the Knysna tour next term.

Die span se spel en vlak van tegnieke lyk baie belowend. Hou gerus hierdie dogters dop – hulle gaan uitblink díé seisoen!!

u/14 KNYSNA GIRLS HOCKEY TOUR

Ons is pas terug van nog ‘n suksesvolle Knysna Hokkietoer met ons o/14A & B-dogters. We were privileged to see some rain along the way. Die spanne is blootgestel aan sterk kompetisie en het hulle goed van hulle taak gekwyt. Our A side played 13 matches and won 12. Die 0/14B-dogters het geensins terug gestaan vir die ander skole se A-spanne nie. Goeie vriendskappe is gevorm en spanwerk is gekweek. We thank our parents for their loyal support.

GRAAD 7 KAMP: BERGKROON

 

Ons graad 7-leerders het die afgelope week ‘n geleentheid gehad om buitelugopvoeding te kry deur Jeugtrust. Die leerders het van 14-16 Maart by Bergkroon gekamp.

From the moment they arrived in Wellington, the learners were kept busy with various activities. They first had to settle in their bungalows and make up their beds. After this they were divided into their groups and the activities began.

Die leerders het eers ‘n entjie gaan stap en is geleer van   indringerplante. Hulle is geleer hoe en hoekom hulle in Suid-Afrika aangekom het. Die leerders is ook attent gemaak op die geluide wat hulle in die natuur kon hoor. Dit was belangrik, want hulle het toe later weer uitgegaan en moes luister na al die verskillende klanke.

Before dinner, there was a very interesting and exciting session on scorpions. Firstly there was a lecture on scorpions, their classification, their adaptations and their habits. This was followed by a scorpion hunt! All the learners went out to “scorpion alley” and hunted with vigour! No learners or scorpions were harmed during this activity.

Die aandsessie was baie interessant en leerders is geleer oor die redes vir die ekstra geluide in die nag. Hierna moes die leerders hulself was en regmaak om te slaap. Slaap was die moeilikste aktiwiteit van die dag, aangesien al die leerders baie opgewonde was. Die wonderlike reënbui het ook nie gehelp met die slaap nie.

Day two had two great highlights. The first was a hike into the mountains! There were various insightful lectures in the mountains. Information was shared on alien vegetation and why they are so successful in our environment. There was also a short session on Buchu, tortoises and baboons. It was hard work walking through the mountains and the lack of sleep started to count against some of the boys who were struggling to keep their eyes open.

Die hoogtepunt van die kamp was die sessie deur Felix. Hy het ‘n hele klompie wonderlike eksperimente gedoen en baie van die leerders was van  mening dat dit die beste sessie vir hulle was.

For supper the learners had to make roosterbroodjies. And there was less resistance to sleep as the wind blew strongly through the night.

Vrydagoggend moes ons oppak en skoonmaak. Voor ons ons oë kon uitvee, was ons terug by die skool.

EVERSDAL TREASURE HUNT

When it comes to school spirit, Eversdal never seems to disappoint. Once again this proved to be true on Tuesday, 13 March, during the Treasure Hunt.

Ongelooflike pryse was op die spel, daarom het ons leerders meer as 7 000 vlaggies verkoop. Mnr. Arangies het die bommetjies laat neerreën om só die wenners van o.a. ‘n iPad en Lenovo -tablette te bepaal.

Thank you to all our sponsors and teachers involved in this fundraiser. Congratulations to our prize winners.

Ons groet tot volgende keer…Kaptein span die seile!
