Our "Sharks" travel to South Africa

It’s with great pleasure to inform you that last year the Nairobi Shark team has been winning medals and individual trophies. This was from the hard work and determination despite of  unfriendly weather, the swimmers showed their passion and they were there without failure just to put our school on top. Bravo to all swimmers.

Out of that, our own three swimmers were selected to go to South Africa to present Nairobi Nationally In the coming Gala.

Congratulation to:

·         Lucia Ruchti Class 6

who was selected in level 2

·         Radina Bozukova Class 5 / Timon Tenanbergen Class 5

who were selected in level 1

The Nairobi Shark team take this opportunity to thank the school for the support they have been giving and we hope that you will continue.

Kind regards,

Team Manager

NASA Age Group Championship ‘A’ ages 10-16+

The weekend of September 21 and 22 2013 will go down in the annals of history as a dark time for Kenya, on the Westgate Mall, Westlands end of Nairobi. Our thoughts, prayers and hope go out to those affected. As every reaction has an equal and opposite reaction, that weekend also shone a light for German School, Nairobi at the other end of Nairobi, the ABC Centre, Kangemi side of Nairobi.  The scheduled NASA 'A' Group swimming championship was held at the Aga Khan High School, September 21 - 22 2013.  Hats off to our swimmers who not only continued the meet inspite of the havoc on the other side of town, but who actually excelled and succeeded.

40 schools and clubs participated, with the German school  girls team coming 9th overall.  Our own Lucia attained AAA in 3 events, Miriam and Herman achieved AA and all our new swimmers got an A*.

Congratulations to Miriam, Harman, Lucia, Carl, Joshua, Vanessa, Dinah, Muturi, Daniel Wandere and Daniel Buzukov and thanks for representing us.

German School Swimming Gala on 18 May 2013

18 May 2013 dawned as a cold dreary day. It ended with our boys keeping our cup on home ground. Hu ha.

We had 8 schools participating and our boys took the winners' cup: Oliver, Markus, Mwangi, Daniel, Joshua, Max, Timon and Karl. Regulars and new swimmers, all part of one team, one forces to be reckoned with. Our standard girl's team of Lucia, Ilana, Njeri and Radina obviously won their events and relay. Had we had the sheer numbers of Mountain View School, we would have taken the girls winners' cup. Second place is not to be poo pooh'd at either as we were helped by Laila, Abby, Ahana and Melanie, all first time swimmers.

That was the point. We supported our own. We have new blood and a big hurrah goes out to these first timers, who had the courage and the determination to try and succeed. For some of them, just finishing a length, was the achievement. BRAVO! This combined with supervision and nurturing will give us the numbers to clear the medal table in total, next years.

Special thanks go to parents who helped with presentation, and marshalling; Henrike, Job and Woki and all the parents who send their kids to participate and cheered all our kids on. Outstanding success, if we say so ourselves! Same time, same place, next year?

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Bernard for his help, over and above the call of duty.

Kind regards,

Arlene

 

The Nairobi Sharks – our successful Swim Team

The German School swimming team has been winning medals and trophies this year, right from the word go! From January to April 2013 we have already had 3 tournaments - A January and March NASA (National Swimming Association of Kenya) and an inter-school tournament (Potterhouse School). In the tournament, our very own Lucia Ruchti won 2 Gold medals - Best Girl Overall and Best Girl in the U9 category.

Our swimmers consistently come first, second or third and those who do not make the first 6, (thereby aiding the school with valuable school points) improve on their own personal best times. I believe that the sense of camaraderie and being part of a team, while also enjoying each other's company, irrespective of age or gender, is what makes this small team so effective.

 

Results from the last competition show how amazing our swimmers are:

A Parent's Report

When my daughter Ilana Reblin, first started swimming for the German School, she was in Class 1. She was ever so small and the competition ever so big. Sigh! For the first swim meet at Rosslyn Academy, neither my husband nor I were able to make it but Lucia's mum, Eunice, our team manager, and Bernard, her coach, took my girl in hand and helped her through the event with such grace that she was not put off by competing and actually enjoyed herself. 

Lucia Ruchti was already winning gold medals then, 2 years ago. Her hard work, and dedication to ceaseless practice, does her credit and gives us all hope that with practice, we can all be winners. Her butterfly stroke (a picture of which is up on the swimming pool notice board) is a beauty to behold. In spite of her success, Lucia is a shy but well-rounded, helpful child who is only too ready to groom the next crop of swimmers to walk in her footsteps. She is now the undisputed queen in my humble opinion of IM (The Standard article dated 16 March 2003 features her on back page headlines).


Daniel Buzukova's sister, Radina, has a dad who has been training her over the winter holidays. It shows. The improvement in her time, her stroke is but augmented by her strong will to succeed and win. She is a clear example for the old adage 'practice makes perfect', just with more joy and grace! Njeri likes football but she also loves to swim and these 4 girls, the only 4 girls in the under 9 category, just about make up a relay team. 

These 4 girls are poster children for the school. They all practise hard, are committed to getting better and have a strong bond even though they are all in different classes. The winners are not cocky and showy, just likable, well-rounded girls who help their team mates with encouragement and their personal commitment.

More interest in swimming and perhaps more interest from parents who have coaching experience would allow for a stronger boys team as well. Each year we hope to get even one promising new swimmer. With such a small student base, we depend on this new injection of student to the bloodline of great swimmers that have gone before us like Luca Daur, Anja Löhr, Lydia Pudsz and Patrick Menzer. Last year we gained Ilana Reblin, this year, Oliver Medcraftand the year before, Radina Buzukova. I would encourage parents to speak to Viberti and Bernard to evaluate any child who shows but a modicum of interested in swimming. We need new swimmers. Your school needs you!

Our next report will be about our male swimmers. Among them we also had a winner at the big NASA tournament at the Aga Khan School. Radina's brother Dani swims faster and faster and we could just welcome a new talented swimmer in our boys' team.
