“The number of sports fixtures and competitive sports matches has increased; girls’ soccer has surged ahead and the new Insele Cross Country Track has added phenomenal opportunity for Waterfall Schools interschool’s events, for cross country runners, mountain bike riders, power-walkers and also strollers seeking peace and quiet on the iThemba Campus.”
This year, Waterfall College students have excelled, both in school sports and external extra-curriculars, including powerlifting and equestrian. Special mention must go to Candice Leslie, who was named Sports Person of the Year for the third year running.
“We thank Mr Liam Smith, our Sports Co-ordinator, and Mr Greg Kyle, Head of Drama, for their passion, their love of sport and culture, respectively, and their commitment to raising the level of our students’ enjoyment and participation in both areas.”
