We offer both a Winter and Summer timetable and compete weekly against other schools:
Netball, Hockey, Tennis, Swimming, Softball, Soccer and Chess
We also host termly Sports days where the girls have fun competing in their “Houses” (Red, Yellow, Green and Blue) against the other houses.
As of 2018 we have two senior teams who participate in the schools tennis league and a group who play socially during practise times. The group has slowly downsized due to most learners being absolute beginners, and not having the resources available to train beginners.
Later in 2018 we are hoping to be able to hire a professional coach to increase the popularity of the sport by showing how beginners can learn the game quickly if they are committed. Sans Souci also compete annually in the PGSGU tournament, a special group of schools to which we belong.
As of 2018 we have three teams, U14, U16 and U19 who participate in the schools hockey league.
Our learners generally arrive at Sans Souci as beginners and leave as accomplished players, the level being dependent on their commitment to the training.
The girls have developed great relationships with the schools with which we compete against regularly and enjoy their Saturday morning outings to play hockey. Sans Souci also compete annually in the PGSGU tournament, a special group of schools to which we belong.
Netball is one of our largest winter sport during this season. It consists of three teams namely the Under 14(U14), Under 16(U16)and Under 19 (U19) that partake in our training schedule every Tuesday and Thursday by professional coaches.
It includes extensive warm-up, fitness, game strategies and fostering sportsmanship. We are both a member of thePeninsula Girls’ School Games Union (PGSGU) and our teams participate in League matches and Inter-school events where we compete against various schools in our district.
Sans Souci has a small but dynamic chess club which runs throughout the year.The majority of the members are young – mostly in Grade 9 – which gives scope for much development.Practices are held twice weekly, with matches every Friday.We participate in two chess leagues – a southern suburbs league run by Larry Moser of Wynberg Boys’ High as well as the Western Province Schools Chess league – which brings us to seven matches played per term. We look forward to our annual Sans Souci Chess Championships in the third term, a Round Robin event to decide the top player at Sans Souci and the winner of the Lyndon Bouah Chess Trophy.We also hold a similar-styled event to discover our new blitz queen in a 5-5 minute Blitz Championship.
Chess is enjoyed in the library by many, on a more informal basis. We encourage chess at Sans Souci and, on occasion, teach chess to whole grades of younger learners. The chess coordinators are Mr Graser and Ms Swanepoel.
Yoga is a physical and mental practice. It helps the students to distress and feel relaxed. On Tuesdays we focus on core strength and coordination and Thursdays we do acro-yoga, this incorporates team building and trust amongst the students. The students are expected to attend Tuesdays sessions which are needed to enable the students to cope with Thursdays acro-yoga.
Thursdays generate a lot of excitement and laughs as we help each other to complete the positions for the day. In yoga each individual has to focus on herself, this gives the students a good idea of their body’s capabilities. As a whole yoga helps to teach the girls how to relax their body’s while getting sufficient exercise.
