Tregonning’s career in education spanned almost three decades. “He was passionate about teaching and inspiring both learners and educators. He not only took a keen interest in developing learners academically but also supported their sporting dreams and assisted as far as possible for them to achieve it. “In commemorating our late principal, Windsor High School staff has decided to host a soccer tournament in honour of Phaldie Tregonning, hence the tournament has been named ‘The Phaldie Tregonning Memorial Cup Tournament’,” continued the statement.

Three teams, along with Windsor High School, have been invited to take part in the tournament namely: Livingstone High School, RC Athletico FC and Westerford High School.In tonight’s action, Windsor will tackle Westerford, with Livingstone doing battle against RC Athletico. The winners will take part in Thursday’s final at 19:15, while the losers of tonight’s contests will play in the curtain-raiser at 18:00. The school hopes to grow the tournament in years to come where they will be able to invite more teams.

“We wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Tregonning family for granting permission to host the event and supporting this tournament. To Muneebah, Shakirah, Aniqa and Uzair – thank you for allowing your husband and father to be a part of our lives. He not only touched but made a tremendous difference in so many peoples’ hearts and lives over his 27 years in education.”V For more information on the tournament call 076 244 1373 or 083 570 3058.
