Damien joins us from Polokwane where he attended Pietersburg Oos Laerskool.
An outstanding ‘all-rounder’ with a very sound 75% average achieved at the end of a busy Grade 7 year. With fantastic accolades achieved in many codes – athletics, cricket and rugby, this young talent has a very promising and exciting future ahead of him.
Representing Limpopo Primary Schools in rugby, cricket and athletics shows his dedication, diligence and hard-working spirit. He has shown wonderful leadership skills, captaining the Limpopo u12 XI in 2018 and then again being selected to represent the u13 XI and Limpopo Blue Bulls u13 Craven Week Teams in 2019. He participated in the SA Primary Schools Athletics Championships in 2018 and placed 8th in the shotput event.
Boarding School has been an adjustment and although he is naturally a little ‘homesick’, Damien is settling in well and enjoying playing cricket for the u14A XI.
“I’ve made friends in the hostel and the cricket team and I already feel at home here,” he said as he settles into a new routine and environment.
