Die Toernooi

Ons is verheug om die eerste Nasionale Topskoletoernooi vir o.16-meisie- en seunspanne in Augustus 2018 by die Hoërskool Paarl Gimnasium aan te bied. Die doel van die toernooi is nie net om teen die top o.16-spanne in Suid-Afrika te kompeteer nie, maar om ook die vaardighede van die spelers in ‘n hoëprestasie-omgewing te verbeter.

Na afloop van die toernooi word twee o.16-spanne gekies om in Desember in Nederland te gaan toer. Die besonderhede is op die webtuiste beskikbaar.

Daar is ‘n hele paar funksies vir al die spelers, afrigters / bestuurders en die ouers in die vooruitsig. Hierdie besonderhede is op die webtuiste.

‘n Toernooitoepassing is ook geskep wat al die wedstrydbepalings en puntestand uiteensit. Sien die besonderhede elders op hierdie webwerf.

The School

Paarl Gymnasium opened its doors on 12 January 1858. We are celebrating our 160th anniversary this year. The school has a proud heritage and various long-existing traditions which ensure well-balanced students. The school takes pride in both its academic and sporting successes. The school’s motto – translated from Latin – reads: “May the Sun of Righteousness shine upon you”.

Not only does the school location leave you with a breathtaking view of the Drakenstein Mountains in the East but it is also positioned against the spectacular slopes of Paarl Mountain.

The school’s sporting facilities include various rugby, hockey and cricket fields, as well as netball and tennis courts, an athletics track and an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Recently a sand-dressed hockey astro was opened.

Die Skool

Die skool is op 12 Januarie 1858 geopen en vier vanjaar hul 160ste bestaansjaar. Paarl Gim het ‘n trotse erfenis en verskeie lang bestaande tradisies wat verseker dat die leerders hul plek in die volwasse lewe kan vol staan. Die skool is trots op beide sy akademiese en sportsuksesse. Die skoolmotto, uit Latyn vertaal, lui: Mag die Son van Geregtigheid op jou skyn. Nie net bied die skoolligging jou ‘n asemrowende uitsig op die Drakensteinberge in die ooste nie, maar dit is ook geleë teen die pragtige helling van Paarlberg. Die skool is trots op sy infrastruktuur wat verskeie rugby- en krieketvelde, netbal- en tennisbane, ‘n Olimpiese-grootte swembad en atletiekbaan insluit. Onlangs is ‘n tweede sandgebaseerde astrobaan geopen.
