SACSSA Regional Athletics Meet 2018

The 14th February 2018 was once again time for all our homeschool athletes to compete at the SACSSA Regional Athletics Day against other Christian Schools in the Peninsula. In true Cape Town fashion right now, the temperature was a scorcher, but our athletes came out tops in events ranging from 60m, long distance, shot put, javelin etc… A huge thanks to all the young ones who competed, and to those involved in making it such a success.

Below are some photos, but we know everyone has phones and cameras on them, so if you have some more photos, please email them to lizelle.rademeyer at
