Donkey Beach outing

Just a Saturday, some sunshine, boerewors, private beach, some donkeys and nature. We visited a local farm just outside of Swellendam for the morning.

As a thank you for always being my little helpers!

Hardly a month old, just shaking his little ears. 

To pose, or not to pose?

Olyfkrans College Parkrun Volunteers and Runners

We are still involved every Saturday morning at 07:30 at the Swellendam Parkrun.  Some are running and some are helping.

This is a wonderful event and the boys have really been making us proud with their helpfulness and positive attitudes. Thanks to all of them.
Some of the best times of the day for the run:

6th place overall, Bradley de Kock with 26:06
10th place, Hanno Jordaan with 26:57
11th place, Tiaan Smit with 27:05

Well deserved picnic for hungry boys.

Soccer News!

We started playing league this term. This means we have a game every weekend against another league team. This is organised and monitored by Officials from SAFA, South African Football Association.  This is a fantastic opportunity for our players that are serious about their sport.
We have already played two games since school started last week. Wednesday the 11th October we played against  
New Beginning FC and were unfortunately beaten 6 -1.
