Con Spirito Rounds

Con Spirito

 Con Spirito bestaan uit twee rondtes: 


Provinsiale Rondte:
Provinsiale rondtes (1ste Rondtes) word oor die hele land op verskillende plekke gehou. Lokale en datums sal op ons aanlyn-registrasie profiel beskikbaar gestel word.

Leerders het ‘n opsie tussen TWEE platforms:         
       A. Aanlyn deelname
       B. Deelname by spesifieke venues (Covid-19 regulasies in ag geneem).

Deelnemers wat die itemwenners tydens die Provinsiale Rondtes is, gaan deur na die Forte rondte.

Nasionale Forte Rondte:
Forte deelname MOET onder dieselfde platform as jou Provinsiale rondte gedoen word. M.a.w. as jy deurgaan met jou Afrikaanse gedig onder die aanlyn opsie MOET die leerder dit weer aanlyn doen tydens die Forte ronde & omgekeerd.

Daar gaan aparte Prestige-Prysuitdelings gehou word vir die Aanlyn en Venue kompetisies.

Con Spirito Nasionale Forte "live" Rondte 2022 sal gehou word gedurende  20 September tot 1 Oktober 2022 in Alberton, Oos-Gauteng.  Con Spirito Nasionale Forte Aanlyn Rondte sal tussen 22 Augustus en 3 September 2022 plaasvind.

Sien asb die aangehegte skedule vir 2022 hieronder.  Die venue deelname datums mag verander na gelang van die aangepaste skool kalenders, asook Covid-19 regulasies.
