Bredasdorp Sewens
09 September 2014
A group of WG's rugby boys participated at the Bredasdorp Sewens tournament where they did very well.

They cruised through the group stages, beating Augulhas Vaardigheidskool 45 - 0, Robertson 42 - 7 and Gansbaai 49 - 5.

They unfortunately lost to eventual tournament winners Outeniqua 14 - 24 in a closely contested affair.

Adriaan van der Bank scored 45 points in the tournament and was also chosen as one of the top players of the tournament.

WG win interschools
30 August 2014
WG had a fantastic year of interschools and managed to walk away triumphantly for the first time since its origins four years ago. For the past two years the trophy was shared, but this time the Gimmies ensured the trophy comes to the Boland.

Each match played counts 2 points, while the first team matches count 4 points. In this way, every team’s scores matter. This means that the whole school got involved, and the effort and victory of every learner counted.

Before the start of the day, the golf team had already gone over to Kuilsriver to play their matches. It came down to the last hole to decide whether it was a loss or a draw overall, but unfortunately De Kuilen took the golf 6 – 2.

The chess was a relatively closely contested affair with WG’s second team winning, while DK’s first team won. This meant the chess also went to DK 4 – 2.

On the hockey field it was quite convincing for the Gimmies with both the boys’ and the girls’ hockey sides doing really well. The boys firs team won 3 – 0 and overall WG didn’t drop a point with a 12 – 0 clean sweep. The girls’ first team won 2 – 1 with the hockey winning 14 – 4 overall.

The netball was the real battle with WG’s first team going down by a big margin, but the junior girls showed a lot of fight to eventually even out the netball to 18 – 18.
On the rugby side the boys fronted well. The first team eventually won 19 – 16 while overall the rugby won the day 13 – 5.

Well done to all the boys and congratulations on a great season!
HIP2B2 iTHINK Nationals
28 August 2014
After the exceptional result of our learners at the HIP2B2 iThink regional competition, where WG's teams took 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, the team that finished first participated in the National round.

Here they competed against schools from all over the country, but certainly did themselves and Worcester Gymnasium proud by finishing third in the country. They finished third behind prestigious schools such as St Andrew's (Freestate) and Waterkloof (Gauteng).

The team that participated included: Marike Fowler (gr 11), Luke Titus (gr 10), Heino Laubscher (gr 10), Madré Visagie (gr 10), Marié Roux (gr 9) en Carla van Niekerk (gr 8).

Learners from the teams that came second and third were also present to help. Well done on this excellent achievement!
