LEPHALALE — Nadja Nortje, a learner from Waterberg Academy in Vaalwater, had recently been rewarded for five years of hard work by being selected for the NASP (National Archery in Schools Programme) South Africa National Team.
The team will travel to Calgary in Canada during the July vacation to shoot in the NASP World Championships. They leave in South Africa on 3 July, will compete from 9 to 11 July and will return when school starts in term three.
“Nadja was placed third in the girls’ section of the South African Interprovincial Championships last year, so her national call-up comes as no surprise. Congratulations Nadja, we are so proud of you,” says School Principal Mark Godfrey.
