Drostdy Derby
09 May 2016
On Saturday 7 May Drostdy hosted WG for the annual derby. As usual, the spectators came from far and wide to watch the two old rivals do battle on the sports fields.

The derby started with a bang for WG with 11 of the 12 netball teams winning with the first team crowning the achievement with some spectacular netball and a convincing 22 ? 11 victory.

The hockey boys and girls did WG proud with an excellent display on Saturday with 7 of the 8 teams winning while the u.14A girls were desperately unlucky with their 0 ? 0 draw. The boys? first team were on fire, displaying superb skills and resolve and won the match 3 ? 0. The girls? first team, not to be outdone, thoroughly outclassed their opponents with an 8 ? 0 thrashing.

The rugby boys fought manfully against great odds. The u.14 boys got the day off to a terrific start with a comeback that showed true grit, but unfortunately fell short 21 ? 24. There can be no denying the fight that the rugby boys showed all day and this epitomised by the hard fought first team match. With the game in the balance, time unfortunately ran out and WG went down 8 ? 13 in a brutal encounter.

Where WG?s true spirit shone however, was next to the playing fields. Despite being away from Bosvarkpark, the Gimmies took over the pavilion and stole the show. The conduct and manner of all the boys and girls who participated on the day was impeccable and was a true advertisement for the excellence the school stands for.

Well done to everyone that participated in yet another memorable derby. One Love! Gym Love!

Interschools Cricket
08 February 2016
On Saturday 6 February WG's cricketers took the field yet again to try and retain the interschools cricketing trophy against De Kuilen. Since its inception, WG has never lost the interschools trophy and 2016 would prove to be no exception to this trend.

The two u.19 teams were completely dominant in their performances. The u.19A2 team secured the first victory of the day after restricting their opponents to only 66, spearheaded by Ussiel Langeveldt's terrific 6/14. Anton Voigt and Byron Moffat smashed the winning runs in a mere 10 overs without WG losing a single wicket in the run chase.

The first team had a similarly comfortable victory with De Kuilen restricted to 99 runs, Ashwin Witbooi (4/22) taking the lion's share. Witbooi was amonst the runs with 28 while Curtley Deelman's 42 helped secure the victory in only the 12th over with 3 wickets down.

The juniors had a tougher time of it with the u.15's successfully defending a total of 191/9 (set up by a brace of 50s from Dylan Setera and Bruce-John Joseph). De Kuilen weren't too far off with 151 all out, but Chamber Joseph's 4/24 and Dylan Setera's 3/23 ensured they didn't reach the target.

The u.14's had the toughest battle on their hands with De Kuilen amassing a mammoth total of 186. WG's bowlers struggled to penetrate, but their batsmen managed to do the job with a few overs and wickets to spare. Everyone chipped in, but Eduard Klusmann's 45 runs was crucial in the end.

Well done to all the cricketers for another excellent interschools!
Colours Athletics
25 January 2016
The annual colours athletics was hosted at Bosvarkpark for the second year, but was split over two days. There were just too many entries to fit everything into one day.

With over 1840 entries, it's no wonder that the place was abuzz with energy throughout the competition. What is remarkable as how close the competition was. With only the 200m races and the relays to go, the red team were still leading, but by a whisker. The blue team however took the lead and cemented their position as winners with a dominant display in the relays.

It was a fantastic display by both teams with the Blue team eventually triumphing 2690 points to the Red team's 2434 points.

85 athletes achieved above 600 points on the ABSA table, 18 above 700, 3 above 800, 4 above 900 points and one remarkable performance in the discus by Francois Prinsloo was awarded above 1000 points.

We'd like to thank everyone involved in organising such a magnificent event.

Die ABC's van E-leer
07 December 2015
Worcester Gimnasium het reeds ver gevorder in die gebruik van e-leer-tegnologie en ons beskik oor rekenaars en dataprojektors in alle klasse. Interaktiewe witborde en dokument-kameras word ook in 'n groot persentasie van ons klasse gebruik. Ons volgende stap in die gebruik van opvoedkundige tegnologie behels die gebruik van elektroniese boeke op reke-naartoestelle soos rekenaartablette (tablets) en skootrekenaars (laptops) deur leerders.

Wat behels dit?


Dit beteken dat ons aan ons leerders die geleentheid gaan bied om toestelle soos tablette klas toe te bring. Hierdie tablette kan dan hulle handboeke in elektroniese formaat bevat, asook 'n baie wye verskeidenheid opvoedkundige materiaal soos sketse, notas, video's, ani-masies, opvoedkundige speletjies, programme, ensovoorts.

Die skool voorsien 'n "enterprise level" draadlose (WiFi) netwerk wat die verspreiding van die elektroniese handboeke en enige materiaal wat aan die handboeke gekoppel is aan geregis-treerde toestelle outomaties hanteer.

Hoekom?


As 'n skool van uitnemendheid, glo ons dat ons leerders die geleentheid moet hê om die beste en nuutste opvoedkundige hulpmiddels te kan gebruik. Daar is natuurlik ook baie an-der voordele. Hier is slegs vier:
  • Leerders word blootgestel aan tegnologie wat ná skool wyd gebruik word;
  • Leerders ontwikkel hul inligtingsverwerkingsvaardighede;
  • Besparings ten opsigte van afrolkoste;
  • Ligter skooltasse!

Athletics tour to Mosselbay
19 October 2015
During the October holidays WG's athletics team took part in a top 10 athletics meeting hosted at HS Punt in Mosselbay.

As part of the team building for this group of learners, the 30 learners stayed in Mosselbay from the Thursday already where they had the opportunity to bond and have some fun on the beach, training and getting ready for Saturday's event.

There were 65 teams in total, among them some strong teams all the way from Pretoria and Johannesburg. The A-team finished 6th overall and the B-team finished 7th overall with some brilliant performances from the athletes.

For the A-team Elize-Mari Jacobs (905 points for shotput), Leandré Ketch (870 for shotput & 796 for javelin) and Rogail Joseph (824 for 200m) did excellently for the A-team while Mari Pretorius (a future Bosvark of 2016) raked in 880 and 868 for the B-team in 100m and 200m respectively while Chinell Ferreira's efforts in the javelin earned her 763 points.

The top performers for the C-team were Samuel Santos (669 in 1500m) and Rehane Adams (469 in longjump).

We are very excited about the 2016 athletics season as the athletes are hard at work in the preseason and the efforts are clearly paying off.

Interschools Report
31 August 2015
On Saturday 29 August WG travelled to Kuilsriver in mass and thoroughly outperformed their hosts De Kuilen.
On every front the Bosvarke seemed stronger. In the netball the juniors were especially dominant with only 1 of the 10 teams losing. The first team struggled, but the netball trophy was won by a convincing 22 ? 12 margin.

The hockey boys made a clean sweep on the day. While it was a low scoring day in general, the boys did not concede a single goal with the first team winning 2 ? 0. The hockey girls also won the trophy, with 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss; the first team drawing 0 ? 0.

On the rugby front the bosvark lads thumped the opposition with 6 wins and only 2 losses. The u.19 group rounded off an excellent season with 3 convincing victories, the first team eventually winning 22 ? 8 to follow the second teams impressive 48 ? 5 victory.

The chess team unfortunately could not complete the clean sweep as the bosvarke brought home the rugby, netball, boys? hockey and girls? hockey trophies while De Kuilen won the chess trophy and the golf trophy was shared.

A truly convincing Interschools win in 2015.

Interskole Gholf
17 August 2015
WG het op Vrydag, 14 Augustus by Worcester Gholfklub met 3 spanne teen De Kuilen meegeding as deel van die interskoleprogram wat op 29 Augustus voltooi word.

The format was match play with all players playing without handicaps. Our players were determined to win, after we lost last year at Kuilsriver.

Ongelukkig het die eerstespan verloor en dit was in die hande van die ander spanne om te wen, sodat die gholftrofee gedeel kon word. Ons is baie dankbaar dat die spelers van beide die tweede en derde span baie karakter gewys het en albei spanne kon die noodsaaklike oorwinnings behaal. Omdat die eerstespan se punte dubbeld die gewig van die ander spanne tel, word die gholftrofee dus vanjaar gedeel.

Of the 12 players who played, Johan Goosen, Charl Schoeman, Pierre Rousseau, Stian Viola, Brendan Groenewald and Victor Theron won their games while Heino Laubscher and Rickus de Wet drew theirs. Congratulations to these 8 players.

WG win Derby Rugby
11 May 2015
It has been a long time coming, but this year's u.19A rugby team has been a special group of players ever since stepping into the school as wide-eyed u.14 boys.

Having an excellent record of beating HTS at u.14, u.15 and u.16 levels, there was a certain air of excitement as the big day loomed. The match itself was a pulsating affair with both teams going at each other tooth and nail.

With time almost up and WG trailing 13 - 18, it seemed like it would be another year of almosts, but after a fantastic effort in the dying minutes of the match hooker Jeshua Paul managed to crash over in the corner for a fantastic try. This meant that all eyes would be on captain Adriaan van der Bank with the difficult task of converting the try from right on the touchline.

He stepped up and slotted it like a consummate professional, breaking Donkie hearts and sealing a fairy tale 20 - 18 victory.

DF Malan Hokkie Kursus
13 April 2015
Ons eerste meisies hokkiespan het die groot voorreg gehad om van 1 - 5 April deel te neem aan die jaarlikse DF Malan Hokkiekursus.

Die eerste wedstryd teen Hoërskool Langehoven het baie goed verloop en WG wen uiteindelik 3 - 0 en na 'n verdere afrigtingsessie verloor ons ongelukkig naelskraap 1 - 2.

Die volgende dag was daar verdere afrigtingsgeleenthede en nog wedstryde: WG wen 2 - 0 teen Hoërskool Bredasdorp en speel gelykop 0 - 0 teen DF Malan.

Op die derde dag het ons drie baie moeilike opponente gehad en ongelukkig al drie wedstryde verloor. Ons het die wedstryde op 'n positiewe wyse aangepak en werklik ons beste gegee.

Ané le Roux is aangewys as een van die top 20 spelers (uit 588) van die toernooi/kursus. Ons wil haar net baie geluk wens met hierdie prestasie.

President's Award
02 October 2014
Our participants in The President’s Award have completed their adventurous journey, when they took the hiking trail to sleep over at Thomas hut. All romantic notions surrounding this activity disappeared quickly when they hit the steep ascend of the Brandwag mountains. Under the guidance of Mr. Tom Jourdan, they had the opportunity to learn, not only about hiking, but also about nature.

The participants must still complete their prescribed number of hours in the other sections of the programme, before they will receive their certificates. They have one more term to do so. Other learners can look forward to the beginning of 2015, when new participants will have the opportunity to enrol.

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!

Holiday fun for the Girls Hockey
10 April 2014
The 1st girls' hockey squad attended the DF Malan coaching course during the holidays. The course included coaching, fitness training, team building, umpire's exams and matches.

Although we had our challenges due to injuries, the team won 4, drew 2 and lost 1 match. The growth in team play was great, and we look forward to a season with excitement, knowing that by the 2nd half of the season we will be practising and playing on our very own Astro!

The Gimmie gees shone through during the course as they won sunglasses for being one of the three teams (of 34) with the best spirit as well as being unanimously decided to have the best team song!

The team would also like to thank Mr Anton Quénet (WG's head boy in 1983) from Quénet's Family Pharmacy for his sponsorship and continued support of the team and the school.

Soos die gewilde gasvrou, Angelique Gerber, tereg opgemerk het: “Julle het iets ver bo die standaard van 'n skoolproduksie aangebied.”

Die uitslae was soos volg: Mej. WG: Danel Krynauw; Eerste prinses: Irene de Bod; Tweede prinses: Nosiphiwe Badi.
Mej. WG Junior: Kaylin Amsterdam, Eerste prinses: Shakirah Williams; Tweede prinses: Carla van Niekerk.
Mnr. WG: James Duncan; Tweede: Janneman Vlok, Derde: Daniel Jordaan.

Dankie aan ons borge vir die aand: Bliss Events Group, Viljoen Juweliers en Thea Stander van TV Models wat 5 modelkontrakte geborg het.

Winter Sports in full swing

Worcester Gim Swemspan
03 March 2014
Worcester Gim se swemmers was baie suksesvol by vanjaar se onderskeie gala’s. By die 6-hoek interskole gala het ons meisies gewen en die seuns was tweede. Ons o.14-meisies het veral in die aflosse beindruk en Hilda du Toit het puik gevaar deur in die meeste van haar items te wen. Ook die o.14-seuns het goed gedoen en ons sterswemmer is beslis Willem-Pierre Viljoen wat die uitstaande prestasie behaal het om al sy items in sy ouderdomsgroep te wen. Die o.16-meisies is ‘n formidabele span. Dis veral Natalie van der Vyver, Marli Neethling en Marie Roux wat in die individuele items uitgeblink het.

The u.16 boys had a mixed bag of success with Darae Bjerre who is the rising star in this group. The u.19 girls did really well in most of their races, but it was once again Janét Vlok who impressed with her individual performance. The u.19 boys also performed well in a large number of items and we need to mention Emile Barnard and Jonathan Cardoso, who were the most successful in this group.

We are really proud of our enthusiastic swimming team!

The team did not have much time to prepare for the day, but did very well in finishing as the eventual winners.

They first played against a mixed Drostdy and Montana side and unfortunately lost 5 - 12, but only got better as they beat Esslenpark 12 - 10 and managed to beat Breërivier High School 28 - 17 in the final.

Well done to all the boys who made WG proud.

Please visit www.wpblood.co.za for more information on donating blood.
Interschools Cricket

Alarm bells should be ringing this Monday morning at De Kuilen after the weekend's cricket. All 4 teams that played won their matches and in very convincing fashion.

This was the perfect start to the 2014 Interschools. In 2013 and 2012 the Interschools trophy had been shared, but WG's cricket sides have shown clear intent that the trophy is coming to WG at the end of the year.

The results were as follows:

Gholfster
29 January 2014
Janneman Vlok het die afgelope naweek aan die Citrusdal Senior- en Junior Ope deelgeneem. Saterdag in die Senior Ope het hy rondtes van 76 en 73 gespeel. Die Sondag het hy in die Junior Ope 'n 75 gespeel en daarmee die netto kompetisie van die A-afdeling gewen. Dit is voorwaar goeie gholf en ons sien uit daarna om Janneman se vordering in die jaar dop te hou.

Die droom om "pro" te raak begin al hoe meer soos werklikheid lyk. Ons is saam met jou opgewonder, Janneman.
Colours Athletics
27 January 2014
The colours athletics served up yet another wonderful day of sportsmanship, spirit and of course some excellent athletics.

No less than 10 records were broken. Others again got very close to that elusive record, but overall it bodes really well for the rest of the athletics season.

In the end one team has to walk away with the spoils, and this year it was the Blue team, with a total of 2340 points as opposed to the Red team’s 2081 points. Both teams showed great spirit throughout, but the Red team were eventually awarded the Spirit award.

Well done to all the athletes and learners for their excellent spirit, cooperation and participation.

Cricket First Team remain undefeated
04 November 2013
Worcester Gymnasium’s u.19A1 cricket team have ended the first half of their season on a high note. After 9 matches played, the team is still unbeaten and haven’t really looked like losing.

On Friday Huntingdon Cricket, an English touring side, played a shortened match (due to the weather). Thanks to the excellent work done on the pitches, the match was underway quite quickly and a 30-over match ensued.

WG scored 185/5 in their 50 overs with Aiden Beukes (54*) and Frederich Conradie (59*) top scoring. Huntingdon could only muster 96 all out after excellent bowling from Mark Andrianatos (4/16) and Frederich Conradie (2/8).

With an excellent start to this season, we are very excited to see what 2014 holds for this special side.

Bergfietsry na Hermanus
07 October 2013
6 van Worcester Gimnasium se bergfietsryers het Vrydag (4 Oktober) op hulle fietse Hermanus toe vertrek saam met Mev. Hofmeyr (afrigter). Hulle het agterpaaie gery en taamlike wind van vooraf gekry, maar die ryers het mooi saamgewerk en ons het tot in Villiersdorp gery.

Saterdag het hulle ‘n tegniese vaardigheids-sessie op ‘n baie moeilike tegniese roete gehad en die ryers het baie geleer terwyl hulle ongelooflike vistas geniet het.

Sondag het hulle ‘n berg uitgeklim tot by ‘n hoë baken vanwaar die hele baai gesien kon word. Die afdraand was weereens baie tegnies en nat. Ons is dankbaar dat niemand seergekry het nie.

Dit was waarlik ‘n onvergeetlike naweek.
Bloedskenk
07 October 2013
In 2013 het 'n reuse 195 ywerig (en soms effens bang) 16+ jarige Gimmies bloed geskenk deur die loop van die jaar. Elke kwartaal skep WG die geleentheid vir die leerders om bloed te skenk en hierdie jaar het die Gimmies in groot getalle gekom.

Daar was in totaal 336 eenhede bloed geskenk, die hoogste aantal wat ons die afgelope dekade geskenk het. Laas jaar was daar 226 eenhede geskenk, wat reeds baie is.

Ons is baie trots op al die leerders wat bloed skenk op ‘n gereelde basis!

Interschools
26 August 2013
Interschools served up another wonderful day of sport where, as in 2012, there was no clear victor. The schools remain evenly matched and it will be another year before the schools can again do battle and for one school to finally claim the trophy.

WG’s hockey teams (boys and girls) did remarkably well, winning 11, drawing 1 and losing 1.
The new bosvarkies enjoyed a very good outing in their first interschools clash as the rugby, boys’ hockey and girls’ hockey A teams all winning while the netball girls did well to draw.

Overall the schools ended on 5 points each, WG winning boys’ hockey, girls’ hockey and golf and De Kuilen netball, rugby and chess.

Interskole Gholf
19 August 2013
Drie spanne van 4 spelers elk het mekaar die styd aangesê in 'n "match play" oor 18 putjies. Ons was gelukkig dat dit nie gereën het nie, maar moes 'n redelike sterk wind trotseer.

Dit was 'n baie gelykop kompetisie met die finale uitslag wat eers op die 18e putjie deur die tweede spanne bepaal was. Die eerste en derde span het 2 elk gelykop gespeel, maar die tweede span het verseker dat ons die gholftrofee vir die eerste keer teen De Kuilen wen deur met 3 - 1 te wen.

Baie geluk aan al die gholfers met hierdie uitslag. Ons wens ook al die ander sportspanne sterkte toe met die res van die interskool-wedstryde.

Netbal eerste span wen 22 - 12
Seunshokkie eerste span wen 6 - 1
Meisieshokkie eerste span wen 5 - 1
Rugby eerste span wen 26 - 6

Ons is baie trots op die spanne met die uistekende uitslae van die naweek. Volgende naweek moet WG weer die lang pad trotseer oppad Bredasdorp toe terwyl die hokkieseuns en -dogters vir HS Strand aanvat.

Sterkte met die voorbereiding vir volgende naweek. Ons is seker die spanne sal bou op hierdie uitstekende prestasies.
English Touring Rugby teams
25 July 2013
Worcester Gymnasium had the privilege of hosting three touring rugby teams from England yesterday. Grypt Grammer School brought an u.16 team while King’s School brought two u.19 teams.

This was a perfect chance for some of WG’s u.16 boys to be exposed to first team rugby, and 5 of the top u.16s formed part of the first team. This meant that WG sent out a u.16/u.15 mixed team. They did well, but unfortunately lost 22 – 24 in a tightly contested match.

The u.19B team won narrowly against King’s School B team with 12 – 11 and the first XV won 17 – 12 against the King’s School A team. Ivan Snyman and Jeanrick Scheepers both scored tries while Adriaan van der Bank slotted two conversions and a penalty.
