Jan­neke van Log­geren­berg

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

CAMP­ING trips to Namibia and Botswana dur­ing the June hol­i­days and watch­ing rugby matches are some of the tra­di­tions in Jan­neke van Log­geren­berg’s fam­ily. Other ac­tiv­i­ties this Norther n sub­urbs teenager en­joys in­clude hockey and go­ing to the beach.

Jan­neke bal­ances school, sports, fam­ily and the things most girls her age en­joy such as watch­ing movies, go­ing to the beach and glu­ing her­self to a book from the Twi­light se­ries.

Hard work earned her an av­er­age of 90 per­cent in her Grade 9 fi­nals last year and this year she plans to keep the mo­men­tum go­ing in Grade 10.

She grew up in Wel­ge­moed, Bel­lville, and at­tends DF Malan High School where she is con­tin­u­ing to play hockey.

She has earned her place in the West­ern Cape pro­vin­cial hockey team.

Jan­neke made the squad and got her Prov­ince colours in 2008. Al­though she’s still not sure of which di­rec­tion she wants to take af­ter school she has def­i­nitely ruled out the ar­eas of eco­nomics and pol­i­tics.

This year her sub­jects are Art, Sci­ence, Bi­ol­ogy, Math­e­mat­ics, Life Ori­en­ta­tion, English and Afrikaans.

“I want to get A’s for all my sub­jects. I’m not sure of what I want to do af­ter school but I would like to go study at the Uni­ver­sity of Stel­len­bosch be­cause both my par­ents stud­ied there and it’s a beau­ti­ful place,” she said.

Jan­neke’s fa­ther is a anaes­thetist and her mother used to be an oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist but is now a house­wife.

About her par­ents she said: “I look up to them be­cause they are good par­ents and they have good morals”.
