Jumping for Joy

Alexus Mayer, a 10 year old student at Melpark Primary School, has achieved a great feat in the school sporting community. After participating in field events for the first time, this girl has found great success.

In the recently concluded school athletics calendar, Alexus represented Melpark Primary School in many athletics meets. She currently has 12 medals from various events, including gold medals from interschool and intercluster competitions.

Because of her achievements, Alexus was chosen to participate in the Gauteng provincial athletics meet in Pretoria. She placed third in her age group for long jump.
From the 20th – 23rd March, Alexus travelled to Paarl in the Western Cape to take part in the School Athletic National Championship. She achieved a great honour by winning a bronze medal for Gauteng in long jump in her division. This extraordinary achievement has brought pride and honour, not only to Melpark Primary School, but to the province of Gauteng.

The Melpark Primary School family of students, teachers and the principal Mrs. Padayachee congratulate Alexus on her fantastic performance in athletics this year. We want to salute your bravery and determination, and wish you all the best in your future sporting endeavours.
