The First Hockey Team beat Framesby High 5 – 0 at the Greg Beling tournament. The festival was held in East London in March. It was the first time a St Michael’s team participated in the tournament, which heightened the excitement about the event.
‘SAINTS ON 3 – 1, 2 ,3 … SAINTS!’ This chant immediately puts the First Team in match mode. The team strive to maximise their mental strength and physical endurance and to cultivate patience – not only with their teammates but also with themselves. As Mr Van Wyk says, ‘Rome was not built in a day’.
ST MICHAEL’S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS has just become the proud owner of a magnificent full-service water-based astro turf. The recent opening of only the fourth turf of its kind in Bloemfontein was a milestone for hockey at the school. The turf boasts fabulous floodlights andan electronic scoreboard that was sponsored by the University of the Free State.
