19 September 2015 marked the calendar for Solis Ortus’s second participation at the CANSA Relay for Life.  We got our sponsor through Tristan and Sandra Botha and was able to enter two teams.

The week leading up to the relay spoiled  us with beautiful warm weather and we were positive that the 2015 Relay will not be as cold as the 2014 Relay.  Boy, were we surprised on Saturday to wake up to overcast coldness.  I think the cold brings us all together, because as a result of the cold weather, we all huddled under a cazebo, sitting close together, chatting, laughing, crying for the loss of the springboks, sharing the jokes that instantly followed the loss.  We walked the walked, provided some entertainment to the crowds and spent quality time together!

Thank you to each and every person who joined us and shared in the special moments!

Year End Function 2014

On 5 December 2014 Solis Ortus had its annual year end function to present all the students with something small for all their hard work and dedication during the year.  Little did I know that I will get the biggest “award” on this evening.

My Senior students surprised me with a video dedicated to my late father and founder of Solis Ortus, Coen Oosthuizen.  I was also presented with a special cake depicting my Karate time line.  It was all very special to me and I can not ask for a better dojo.

Once again I would like to extend a sincere thank you to every student and parent for all that you do for Solis Ortus.  Without you our dojo will not be this successful.
