Independent Schools Sports Festival Durban 2017


This past weekend, the Brescia House Girls' hockey, netball and tennis teams consisting of a group of 29 pupils and 6 teachers, participated in the annual Independent Schools Sports Festival (ISSF) in Durban.

Treverton: The teams made a stop at Treverton College in Mooi River, where the hockey and netball teams played matches.

The hockey match was thrilling and exciting and ended in a draw. The match was a D to D encounter as both Brescia House School and Treverton College played attacking hockey.

The netball team enjoyed a thrilling match against Treverton College too, resulting in a massive difference of 38 – 0 to Brescia House School.

ISSF: The hockey team played 5 matches in total drawing 3 and losing 2. One of the matches that deserves special mention was the match against St Stithians; a nail biting match right up to the end – where they resulted in a 2 all draw. This exceptional team work and joy continued into the Festival, where the team won 3 matches and lost three matches by an inch. Their excellent work is to be congratulated and celebrated.

The Tennis Team played against the top tennis school throughout the tournament; the couples strived to play to their best and did not give up. A special mention must be made of their match vs Our Lady of Fatima spurred on by both the hockey and netball teams.

Thank you, girls, for doing us proud and once again for being such awesome ambassadors for Brescia House School. Thank you too to the coaches for all your hard work and for giving up you weekend.

We look forward to more exciting festivals in the years to come.
