STERKSTROOM THE

The Rep - - COUNTRY WATCH -

– The com­mu­nity was sad­dened to hear of the pass­ing of Sheila Grobbe­laar, a long-serv­ing for­mer sec­re­tary of the farm­ers’ as­so­ci­a­tion, af­ter a bat­tle with cancer. Her hus­band, Danie, passed away in March. They farmed at Fac-et-Spera for many years be­fore re­tir­ing. They played an in­te­gral part of the com­mu­nity while liv­ing in the area, in­clud­ing the Klaas­mits Buy­ing Group. Con­do­lences to their fam­ily.

Sterkstroom school held their prize-giv­ing, as well as the grade 9 farewell, on Thurs­day evening, at a beau­ti­ful venue in town. We wish the grade 9s all the best for the fu­ture, as they leave to con­tinue the last phase of high school at other schools. Sterkstroom school only goes up to grade 9.
