    What an incredible day when Wayde van Niekerk, former student at Bellville Primary, shattered the 400m world record at the Olympic Games.  The staff members and learners watched the win in the hall and suddenly we were descended upon by the media.  Wayde, we as Bellville Primary School are very proud of this tremendous achievement and we wish you all the best for the future.  You took our motto, “Where children become winners” to the highest level.  May your life be an inspiration to many learners at Bellville Primary, now and in the future.  We salute you!
