SP has taken its first steps into a new phase of its existence, with the installation of a set of floodlights facing the AG De Villiers field, thanks to ex-student Kurt Maritz of Maritz Electrical, who donated the lights themselves, and sponsored the labour costs. (Kurt also donated the electronic signpost on the school hall.) The next stage, erecting pylons along the sides of the field at at the Constantiaberg Hospital end, is in the planning. The intention is to approach other ex-students to assist with funding.
Eventually we will be able to stage floodlit soccer, rugby and cricket matches, and host evening music concerts, while floodlit athletics meetings are already a possibility.
We thank Kurt for his support of the school, and encourage other ex-students to become involved in this and other projects.
