MOTHERWELL NU 12’s Imbasa Primary School Indigenous Game (IG) Team were crowned the victors of the Department of Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture’s (DSRAC) Siyadlala for Life Competition games that took place at Motherwell NU 29 two weeks ago.

According to Imbasa Primary School Head Coach, Nomsa Masiza, her team locked horns with community sides.

Masiza said, “Our team showed that they were ready to face any side, but the competition was very tough. Imbasa Primary School IG team played as a unit and they showed good sportsmanship throughout the competition. They received certificates and gold medals in the Kgati Competition.”

Imbasa Primary School Head Master Mluleki Mayekiso said that he was chuffed with his school’s victory.

Mayekiso said, “Our staff are dedicated and they offer up their own time even it is after hours. What matters most is that the learners be given opportunities to express themselves.

The extramural activities help towards the psychological and physical development of the learner. I want to congratulate Masiza and our IG team for making us proud.”

Imbasa Primary Sports Master Mbulelo Kabila Andreas said that some of Imbasa Primary School’s parents played a vital role for the school.

Andreas explained, “The parent, Nontsika Ngqezana, plays an instrumental role in training our IG Team. Ngqezana is a good mentor for our IG Team. Ngqezana and Masiza form a good combination. I am over the moon because Ngqezana is willing to sacrifice her time for the school. Masiza deserves an accolade because she is very patient and also passionate about sport.”
