False Bay TVET College has hosted its inaugural intercampus sports tournament to celebrate the completion of the Fish Hoek campus sports field upgrade from funds received from the National Lotteries Commission.

A full day of activities, the event kicked off with a special ribbon cutting ceremony, where special thanks was credited to the National Lotteries Commission for its valuable investment.

Karin Hendricks, the deputy principal for education and training at False Bay TVET College, says: “We are a tertiary education institution, but we are exceptionally passionate about the overall well-being of all students.”

It is for this reason that the college approached the National Lotteries Commission to help increase the accessibility and promote a sports culture within the college community. “Sports participation is a wonderful facilitator to bolster emotional, mental and physical resilience to overall development. We believe that through sports, our graduates will emerge well rounded and socially mature, more apt to handle the next chapter of their lives,” she says.

Formalities aside, teams from each of the five False Bay TVET College campuses were elected to represent their peers on the soccer and netball fields.

The overhaul to the traditional sports fields, converting them into two multi-purpose AstroTurf fields, required they be fully enclosed by a five metre high nylon netting for all big ball sports. The investment of R1 960 800 is a further legacy contributor of the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, which has already distributed almost R4bn into the development of sports and recreation.
