Star athletes
Carlo, Carl-Hein en Phila

On Saturday, 29 February, 12 learners of Piet Retief Primary School took part in the Gert Sibande District Athletics event in Secunda.

These star athletes showed good sportsmanship and were proud to represent their school. The competition was tough but some of the athletes managed to secure spots in the top three of their categories.

Congratulations to:

  • Carl-Hein Creydt (U/11) – This talented athlete won the 70m hurdles, long jump, high jump and 100m. He also broke the record for high jump by jumping 1.4m high, amazing!
  • Phila Mathe (U/12) – He came second in the 75m hurdles and third place in 150m hurdles
  • Carlo Niebuhr (U/12) – Came second in shot put.

These three boys will be afforded the opportunity to take part in the Mpumalanga trials on Saturday, 14 March. We wish you all of the best!
