PRIMARY and high-school pupils­ converged at the Imbali Unit 1 sports field to participate in the Imbali Ward Primary and Secondary Athletics Championships.

About 28 schools took part.

Imbali ward athletics convener Themba Ndlovu said sports codes included racing, javelin, discus and high jump.

“The pupils who came first and second will compete at circuit level. The circuit competition will include Edendale and uMgungundlovu schools.

“From there the competition will move to district level. We have not set the date for the circuit event.

“This tournament happens annually during the first term because the second term is dedicated to other tournaments such as music.

“Pupils who win at circuit level will be entered into district level. From the district level winners will compete in provisional level.

“Obviously those who make it will compete nationally,” said Ndlovu.

Chairperson of the Imbali Schools Sports Council Manqoba Ndlovu
said that pupils must realise what their strengths are in the world of sport.

“There are children who are not that good academically, but sport is where they can excel,” he said.
