Brescia House School ended the year on a high note with the announcement of three very prestigious awards today.

Erin Wakefield (grade 11)was selected by the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee to represent South Africa at the 36th World Championships for Rhythmic Gymnastics held in Bulgaria in 2018. Many hours of hard work went into this achievement and she is now ranked as the number 2 Senior Gymnast in South Africa and has been awarded her Protea's blazer. In recognition of her dedication and achievement at the highest level, the External Sports Trophy was awarded to Erin.

This was followed by the announcement of two Honours Blazer recipients. Sarah Everett is described as an excellent ambassador for Brescia House School and a true well-rounded young lady. She has worked with determination and focus to achieve her four full colours and has contributed her talents to the school across several disciplines. She was awarded orienteering full colours earlier this year and is a regular top performer in the schools orienteering league. Her consistently high academic performance was recognised with academic full colours at the recent prize giving. On Thursday, 6th December, her long-term contribution to Athletics and excellent performance on the track was acknowledged, with Sarah being awarded full colours in Athletics. In addition to her sporting achievements, she is a knowledgeable and skilled debater who was also awarded full colours in debating. Her hard work and determination was rewarded when she was presented with the White Honours Blazer.

Another recipient of the Honours Blazer on the day was Heather Wimberley. Heather is a very talented sportswoman who gained full colours in both hockey and orienteering, always showing total commitment and giving of her utmost to whatever she undertakes. She has a superb academic track record, and was awarded full academic colours and the Board of Governors' scholarship at the recent prize-giving ceremony.

Recently, the Primary School diving team participated in the Interschools event held at St Mary's in Waverley. In the Junior competition, our Grade 3 and 4 divers all acquitted themselves very well. A notable highlight on that day was Rebecca Spindler who achieved a 4th place.

On the Saturday the senior competition took place. Once again, the girls performed at a very pleasing level. Eye catching achievements in the B team were:

Emma Prince was awarded 3rd place.

Alex Tserkezis was awarded 6th place.

In the A team, Megan Archibald and Tatum Marshall achieved 6th and 10th places respectively.

There was more exciting news to conclude the 2-day competition when the final results were announced. The judges combined the scores from the junior and senior events. In the B team category Brescia achieved a 2nd place overall whilst the A team were placed 3rd overall!

These results were a deserved reward for tireless and dedicated work by all members of the diving team.
