Gonubie Primary – Sport

Gonubie Primary School has a rich sporting history. We pride ourselves in our determination and embrace the ‘never give up’ philosophy which has served us very well over the years. A number of our past pupils have gone on to represent their province and even their country at senior at both junior and senior level. Past pupils include Keegan Daniel, Khwezi Mona and Sinethemba Qeshile.

We strive to offer our pupils a varied and diverse program catering to all ages and genders and we are constantly looking at adding new extra-murals to our program.

In addition to these codes offered by the school we also offer other, paid for, opportunities and these include karate, martial arts and dancing.

Cricket

Our cricket program starts at mini-cricket level and then progresses to hard ball from U/9 – U/13. These teams take part in weekly matches as well as a number of weekend fixtures throughout the season. Our campus consists of two concrete pitches as well as four concrete nets. As well as regular practices we also offer a selected session to players from U/10 – U/13 level.
