A NEW recreation centre was opened at Port Shepstone Secondary on Friday.

With the removal of invasive vegetation and trees that provided shade on the netball field, the pupils had no shelter on hot or rainy days.

The solution to this problem was the erection of a steel structure over an area of about 800 square metres.

This was made possible by the tenacity­ of the former governing body chairperson, Pastor Reggie John and his members.

A sustained effort by contractors, Terry Moodley of Terry’s Engineering­, Tugela Steel and Praveen Moodley of Alpha Projects and Litepro Electrical culminated in the completion of the massive steel structure­.

The governing body chairman, Praveen Maharaj, his members, the acting principal, G. Odayar, staff and pupils felt a wonderful sense of achievement at the official opening of the recreation centre.

The centre was officially opened by Pastor Reggie John and former principal Shireen Ramkelawon who cut the ribbon.

“It was indeed a proud moment to be savoured. Dignity is being restored to our pupils who can enjoy lunch breaks in comfort and shade,” said Odayar.

The first volleyball match played on the newly marked courts during the opening ceremony was watched with excitement and cheer.

“Port Shepstone Secondary stands out today as the leading school in the Ugu District providing quality education and recreational facilities deep into the future.”
