Principal Mdaki said: “This contribution will never be forgotten. It is very important to the future of the learners as we believe in teaching and developing learners holistically. Learners who play sport and are physically fit can concentrate and perform better academically, and they are more responsible. We have been getting our learners to exercise on the piece of ground we have at our school, and they love to play netball and soccer by putting up makeshift goals. But now that all the learners in our community have this multipurpose sports court, it is going to take them to a new level.”
The Sports Trust Golf Challenge, sponsored by Nedbank and Sun International, is played on the Monday following the final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge and raises funds to nurture golf development and disabled golfing talent in South Africa's under-resourced communities through its support of the South African Golf Development Board (SAGDB) and the South African Disabled Golf Association (SADGA).
“Sport is an integral part of nation building and we strongly believe that value creation starts with investing in education. As such, the Nedbank Foundation is further contributing R100 000 towards classroom renovations and technology equipment at Mphuphuthe Primary School. We’re confident that this, along with the sports court, will go far in inspiring the children and their teachers to imagine and work towards a brighter future for themselves and their community.”
