A group of 36 Grade 11 learners from Edgemead High School went on the Orange River from the 20 to the 25 March. They were all very excited because it was the first time many of them were crossing the South African border.
“Our experience was amazing. As a group we bonded and formed new friendships with people we would never have expected to call our friends. The food was delicious and we were always excited to see what would be prepared for us. We developed a newfound respect for the teachers as we listened to their advice and laughed at their jokes,” said Grade 11 learner Jade Vester.
She added that a definite highlight was the Shambok Rapid. “We were all extremely nervous as this was the toughest rapid on our route. Thankfully, only two of the canoes capsized. We were all very proud of ourselves after that.”
“We enjoyed the water fights, the constant rowing, tanning in the breaks and going down the safer rapids on our bums. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we definitely look forward to going again in the future,” added Jade.

The Bosmansdam Knights 1st XV team got their pre-season off to a fantastic start at the recent West Coast Rugby Festival, which was held at Milnerton High School this year. The Knights played two shortened matches (40 minutes each) against Elkanah House and Parklands College. The young Knights were still finding their feet in the first game, but eventually overcame Elkanah 10-0. In the second game, the Knights picked up their intensity and comprehensively beat Parklands 22-0. An impressive feat for the Knights, considering Parklands was the stronger of the two teams faced on the day. Coaches Mr. C. Barnes and Mr. L. De Kock, expressed their satisfaction with the improvement shown on the day. Mr. De Kock added that the team is returning to the style of rugby that Bosmansdam has always been known for. The style is based on a tough, hard-working, never-say-die attitude to forward play, and creative exploitation of the subsequent disruption of the opposition defence by the backline. The team hopes to attract as members of the community as possible to their matches this year.
