Townies rule at Plasieland gala

Ivan BothaAs tradition dictates, the annual inter house gala at Merensky High School took the form of a heated challenge between hostel learners and those who live in town or the surrounding areas.

This years’ gala took place on Wednesday 16 September with sunny weather after cold conditions over the weekend. The staff astonished one and all when they claimed the spirit trophy, once again showing that age is only a number.

In the girls section the hostel won with 209 points to the towns’ 153. The town boys put a score of 263 on the board with the hostel boys scoring 155. The final score was Hostel 364 and Town 416.

The Boys Junior Victrix Ludorum went to Jaco Jacques Joubert, and the Junior Girls to Megan-Mae van der Nest. Senior Victor Ludorum was Ivan Botha and the senior Victrix Ludorum was Leandie Toerien. All the swimmers look forward to the Inter High taking place at Frans du Toit High School on Tuesday 22 September.
