The Grade 7 A netball team and a tennis team took part in the recent Saints Prep festival.

The 3-day festival experienced some inclement weather on Thursday resulting in an amended and quite congested set of netball fixtures for our girls to work though.

Friday saw the girls play 6 matches and only finished playing after 9 at night. The girls played with great spirit and determination regularly coming back from behind to win games.Another series of matches were played on Saturday afternoon.

It was particularly pleasing to see the girls play with such versatility as several girls switched positions with success.

The netball festival was an ideal preparation for the remainder of the season.

The tennis team partnered with the boys from St Johns in a mixed doubles festival.

There was a noteworthy standard of play and our girls certainly gave their best at all matches and were positive ambassadors for Brescia.

The grade 4 girls had a most informative and enjoyable outing to the Wits Arts Museum. They viewed worked by Alfred Thoba, a Johannesburg-based artist whose work displays an intensely personal vision and style. 'A step becomes a statement', is an unprecedented opportunity to view such a large number of paintings.
