RUGBY war cries, ballet, kumite karate fights and fun insights into the “Majorettes Nationals Tour” delighted families of Waterfall College pupils at their fifth annual sports awards last week.

Most of the presentations and speeches were given by pupils, following the theme “Tolerance in Sport”. A powerful introductory quotation set the scene: “There is no place for intolerance in sport. Sport is meant to foster social cohesion, bring different cultures together in a celebration of healthy competition, and to overcome the diffidence and even contempt that all too often divide communities and countries,”

said UN Human Rights chief, Navi Pillay.

Waterfall College raised the bar in sports significantly this year, winning the Wembley 7’s Rugby Tournament, reaching the finals of the Presidents Cup at the Majorettes Nationals in Bloemfontein and establishing a new netball team at the school. In addition, pupils were encouraged to pursue external club or individual sports which are then recognised within the school’s awards system­, thus providing flexibility for diverse and specialised sporting interests.

“What an outstanding display of achievement. “The whole evening was a roller-coaster of activity, and Mrs Eriksen, our sports co-ordinator, has really done us proud,” said principal, Mrs Jeanette van der Merwe.
