She said they wish to thank Barberton Mines for its sponsorship which made it possible for them to go on this tour.

“We really appreciate Barberton Mimes for everything it does for our school. We are happy with its support. Barberton Mines is making a huge difference in various places. And as a school, we want to play a role in shaping the future of our youth and we have learnt that through sport we can achieve that. It has the potential to unite people of all races and learners who participate in sport are healthier and are more academically successful,” said Pieters.

Meanwhile, the school’s under-15 rugby team recently played their semi-final match in the Mpumalanga League against Volkrust High School.

The boys will play their final match of the year against Nelspruit Curro in the next school term.
