The Hawston Senior School Steel Pan band gained first place Cum Laude at the recent Eistedfodd (category Orchestra/Ensembles) and the Hawston Primary Marimba Band received an A+. The adjudicators remarked on the discipline of the players, their awareness of the conductor and of the other players, and their versatility. Betsie Ryke and her team, Joannie Enslin and Annemarie Kotze, are to be congratulated. These bands are much in demand for public performances and private functions.
