Sports Desk

The foundation phase offers the following sport:

SUMMER SPORT

Ball skills, Mini Cricket and swimming. Fitness training is very popular under the grade 3’s. All of these sports are designed to familiarize younger students with the sports that will be available to them at Beaconhurst in later years. Ball Skills is enjoyed immensely by younger students with them learning important hand-eye co-ordination skills and ball techniques. Mini cricket is exactly what it sounds like; cricket at a smaller scale. Familiarizing learners with the game and allowing them to have fun and exercise.

WINTER SPORT

Mini-netball, rugby and ball skills. Mini-netball is one of the sports that all the girls look forward to. Our coaches put a lot of effort into these teams as this is our foundation for years to come. Our rugby boys can’t wait for practice time and the matches are the highlight of there week.

Children can have private coaching with Pro-Coaches in various sporting codes.

The intermediate phase offers the following sport:

SUMMER SPORT

Cricket for boys, we currently have 2 u/11 teams and 2 u/13 teams.  Swimming for boys and girls.  We also have a newly established Kingfisher Club which is run by Mr Heunis and is growing largely in numbers.  We also have a new fitness session which is done every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoon by Mr Oosthuizen.  These runners also form part of our Cross Country team.  We have recently acquired the services of Hayley from Pro Coaches to help us build our young tennis stars up for the future.

WINTER SPORT

We have rugby for the boys and netball for the girls.  Our rugby teams are growing largely in numbers so much so that we almost have A and B team for both u/11 and u/13 age groups.  Both our u/11 and u/13 rugby teams have enjoyed a very successful start to the league season with both teams being unbeaten thus far.  Our netball girls have had ups and downs so far this season but they remain committed to practices and are always hard at work. Fitness and tennis sessions continue as usual throughout the year.

The High School offers the following sport:

SUMMER SPORT

Cricket for both boys and girls.  We have a 1st Team Girls Cricket side which is going from strength to strength with every passing week.  Our 1st Team boys are currently the Canon Cup T20 Champions after they beat West Bank by 2 wickets in the final.  As with the primary school we have Hayley assisting with our High School Tennis.  For our swimmers the Kingfisher club provides a great stepping stone for them.  We also have sports that go on throughout the year such as gym, mountain biking, aerobics, spinning and table tennis.  Kayaking is one of our more popular summer sports with regular visits to the river with the odd visit to the sea.

WINTER SPORT

Rugby for the boys and netball for the girls.  Our rugby boys have recently found and restored the pride and commitment that has been missing from Beaconhurst High School Rugby.  Although they have had an up and down start to the year, they have been improving greatly with every performance.  Our netball has constantly been turning in some excellent results with every performance.  They have also recently acquired ITEC as one of their major sponsor for their new match kit, warm up shirts and kitbags.  One of our new and most exciting ventures has been the forming of the  Raptors rugby and hockey teams.  This consists of a number of smaller schools from around the East London region.  We have recently acquired a massive sponsor from Caltex towards this venture which includes 3 brand new rugby kits as well as a full hockey kit.  We are extremely grateful for this sponsor.
