Sporting stars at Cedarwood School

| March 23, 2015 | 0 Comments

Cedarwood is a school in the congenial country area of Glenferness in Witkoppen, Gauteng, that caters for children with mild to moderate disabilities. The school strives to help parents realise that their children who have been diagnosed with such conditions as attention deficit disorder, autism spectrum disorder and other learning challenges can lead a normal life in academic, sporting and other spheres of school.

Two Cedarwood students have recently managed to do just that in competition with children from other so-called ‘mainstream’ schools. On Saturday 14 February, Roraigh Browne, a Grade 4 pupil, participated in The Iron Man Qualifier competition held at St Peters Preparatory School. This involved swimming a distances of a mile — 60 lengths of a school-sized swimming pool. Browne will now go on to compete in the next stage of the competition.

On the same day, in another competition which involved a number of schools, another Cedarwood preparatory school pupil, Seth Arends, outclassed more than forty other children to become Bowler of the Tournament at Summit College. Playing for his school in a six-a-side cricket tournament in which his team played three matches, Arends took a total of five wickets, leaving his closest competition languishing at three wickets and, surely, in the process proving himself the ‘terror of the tournament’!
