So far so bad. In terms of planning for 2020 it’s looking like a lose-lose for SBR supporters. The very short end of first term state school holidays which runs from 21-30 March 2020 does not provide enough days for both the Noord-Suid Toernooi and the World Schools Festival to operate without an overlap. Affies who will be celebrating 100 years of existence in 2020, look set to host the World Schools Festival. If a viable solution is not found, several schools may have to choose one festival or the other.
