School Sport - RAMPS vs Eaton Square touring team from London- 6 April 2019

The RAMPS (Riverwood & Montessori Primary Schools) Team played hockey and soccer against a touring team from London.

The Eaton Square team from the UK have been travelling in South Africa and were thrilled to have the opportunity to play their matches in this beautiful part of
the world.

The RAMPS won the hockey match and the Eaton Square team won the soccer. It was a wonderful opportunity for the children from Riverwood and Montessori Primary Schools to share their individual experiences of different schooling systems with the Londoners. They enjoyed a well -deserved refreshments after their games, where they could exchange information about their respective countries.

A great deal of fun and camaraderie was had by all. Congratulations to all the players who did our part of the country proud.
