While this year’s Maccabi Games started on July 4, the journey began over a year ago as many of the high school pupils went through trials to be selected to represent South Africa in their respective sports.

King David High School Victory Park had six players in the junior rugby team who competed against Israel and Argentina, winning a bronze in the 7s and silver in the 15s.

They also made up a third of the cricket team who competed against Israel, Great Britain and Australia. The team’s captain was from KDVP and the team once again took gold.

In the under-18 soccer team, KDVP was the most represented school with five players. The team became the first South African soccer team to ever make the semi-finals.

In the golf category, King David Victory Park made up two thirds of the team that won gold, in addition to achieving the Individual Gold Medal.

The school was also represented in the Futsal team that won bronze and had a star player in the girls’ football team. They also represented the country in swimming, table tennis and squash.

Learners from KDVP had the time of their lives competing, touring parts of Israel and spending their evenings networking with new friends from all over the world.
