A fantastic little team

The under-12 Bergmanshoogte Intermediate School netball team has been competing in the Gariep district league, which is made up of ten teams.

Many of the girls are learners at Good Work Foundation’s Philippolis Digital Learning Centre and so Lulani Vermeulen – Centre Coordinator at “Phili” – suggested that we sponsor the team this year.

While we would like to claim credit, quite independent of us, the Bergmanshoogte team has done exceptionally well this season and we were thrilled when they made it through to the league finals at Reddersburg.

Of course the final show down was nail-biting, but the girls didn’t let the nerves get to them, and I’m happy to report that they won the league.

One of the girls, Chandre Jantjies, made the Free State team earlier this year and our aim next year is to get more of these talented young girls onto the province side. So watch this space.

Once again, well done to Heiltjie Snyman and Wilmien Vermeulen (coaches) on such a fine job!
