More than 30 dedicated and passionate sportsmen and women were proudly celebrated at the annual Independent Institute of Education (IIE) Varsity College Cape Town recently.The prestigious event boasted 125 guests and took place at Newlands Cricket Stadium.

The IIE’s Varsity College Cape Town athlete of the year award went to paddler Christie Mackenzie, a student in the second year of her IIE BA Psychology and Communication. Sports acknowledgement awards were handed out to 20 students.

These awards acknowledge those students who contributed significantly to a particular sport in 2019 and who deserve recognition for their efforts.

The IIE’s Varsity College believes that the student experience extends beyond the classroom. Its sporting programmes cater for everyone, with events ranging from the annual national University Sports South Africa (USSA) to the more laid-back social sporting get togethers.

This year, Christie received South African colours and received her blazer for being in the South African team for three years; KwaZulu-Natal colours; Western Province colours; sixth u.23 K1 and fourth in the senior category at the canoe World Marathon Championships in China; Dusi Canoe Marathon – first u.23 K1, first senior woman K1; Fish River Canoe Marathon – second senior women’s K2; Breede Canoe Marathon – first senior woman K2 and a top 10 finish.

“We take great pride in recognising sports excellence, we encourage our students to excel both academically and recreationally. Our athletes are passionate about their sports and are celebrated both nationally and internationally for their efforts – it’s only appropriate that we do the same,” said Saleem Jackson, principal of the IIE’s Varsity College Cape Town.
