Gr 10 learner, Holly Smith, is off to Portugal next week where she will be competing at the World Championships as a member of the South African Team in Canoe Marathon (K1 and K2 events) as well as a member of the South African Team for Surf Ski at the Surf Ski Championships taking place a week later in Portugal.
Holly recently took part in the two day Breede River Canoe Marathon which decided Western Cape Titles and was the last dress rehearsal for World Marathon Champs.
Holly and her partner Neriyah who will be racing worlds champs, Junior U19 together, did incredibly well racing against most the top ladies crews in the country... a testimony to all their hard training that they have put into training for the World Championship events.
The first day of 30km was tight racing and the top ladies crew, who too are going to World Championships, won the day. Holly and her partner where only 3 seconds ahead of the second top ladies crew and lying a very respectfull 15th overall even against the top men.
Day Two they paddled very well and Holly’s driving was unbelievable on a low river with lots of obstacles. The girls managed to only be beaten by 2 minutes on Day Two by the top ladies and put 4 minutes on the second top ladies crew. Holly and Neriyah finished in an impressive Second Place overall in the Ladies Race, winning the U23 and U19 Ladies Titles, ending up overall in 15th Place - an incredible achievement for two 16 year old girls who were exhausted after a mammoth paddling weekend.

On Friday we held a joint Baby Shower and Farewell Party for Mrs Chamune Du Toit.
Mrs Du Toit has become an integral part of our Afrikaans Department and much-loved tutor teacher for 12 Orange. She has decided to pursue other paths after the birth of her son.
Chamune will be sorely missed by all the staff and her students.
At her Baby Shower and Farewell Party on Friday, Head of Afrikaans, Mrs Chantel Sehnke said, “You have worked so hard and have grown tremendously as a teacher, I have seen you grow into the best Afrikaans teacher and am super proud of you and know that you are going to succeed in everything you take on. You ended your time at Camps Bay as Head of the Grade 12s for Afrikaans and have done an amazing job.
"Jou passie vir Afrikaans is net so oorweldigend groot. Ons, as ‘n department, is baie hartseer dat jy moet gaan, maar dis nie totsiens nie. Dit is net totdat ons mekaar weer sien. Laat jou sterretjie altyd helder skitter en bly altyd koel en kalm in Kampsbaai, jy sal altyd deel wees van ons.”
Wishing Mrs Du Toit all the best for the birth of her first child and good luck in all her future endeavours.
