THE Tongaat Tamil Academy was placed first at the regional Lower North Coast Adults Tamil Eisteddfod held in Stonebridge, Phoenix on May 20. The students from the academy competed against three other affiliates in the region.

The adults from Tongaat excelled particularly in the dance and language categories. Some of their winning items were the sketch, dialogues, sight reading, public speaking, modern dance, dance drama, Kolattam, village solo and Kummi.

The academy is comprised of individuals who belong to various temples and cultural organisations in and around Tongaat.

The Eisteddfod is jointly hosted by the KZN Tamil Vedic Society and the Tamil Federation of KZN.

The group advances to the next stage of the competition and will represent the Lower North Coast at the KZN Inter-Regional finals to be held on June 23 and 24 in Clairwood.
