HARTLEY ROAD PRIMARY SCHOOL
A Quantum Leap For Education And Training Excellence!
21ST May 2016 - Soccer Tournament

Hartley Road Primary School took part in the annual, outdoor 6-a-side inter school soccer tournament, held at Clarence Primary School in which 10 schools participated. We fielded a U10 team. It gave our boys a chance to test themselves against former Model C schools from the central Durban area.

With tough competition, our boys managed to progress from the group stage to the semi finals with 3 wins from 4 games. Notable performances by Safwaan Hendricks and M.Ridwaan Jazbhay helped us move forward. We were up against Glenmore Primary in the semi final and in a tightly contested game the score at the final whistle was 1-1, meaning a penalty shootout followed. Our boys comfortably stepped up and scored all 3 of our penalties and with a brave performance from our goalkeeper Abdur Rehman Shamsi who saved 3 penalties, to ensure we moved on to the final. We were put up against a spirited Addington primary for the Final.

The game was a tight affair and against the run of play, Addington managed to score a goal despite Hartley being the dominant team. We were unlucky to concede a goal and lost the game 1-0. Our boys could hold their heads high at the final whistle knowing they played their best. Second place was still an outstanding achievement given the level of competition.

14TH May 2016 - AMS provincial astro turf soccer tournament

The AMS Astro Soccer Tournament was held on May 14, with the venues for U9/U11 at Hartley, U13 at Orient and U15/17 at Al Falaah.

Hartley entered 2 teams in each division for U9, U11 and U13. There was so much talent and eagerness of learners to participate, and we hope that AMS will allow us to enter 3 to 4 teams in each division next year to cater for more players /teams who are willing to participate. From the 5 divisions, Hartley scooped 3 trophies, winning all in the primary school divisions.

U9 HRPS vs Al Falaah in finals - 2-0
U11 HRPS vs Orient in finals 1-0
U13 HRPS vs Al Falaah in finals 2-0 – on penalties

The U9 team also took the “Player of the Tournament” award, going to Safwaan Hendricks for the second year in a row. Surely if Hartley had a high school all 5 trophies would be ours, says Mr D. Paulsen (sport co-ordinator/coach at Hartley). Nevertheless in the 3 divisions we are placed 1st in the province with regard to AMS schools.
