PARENTS and members of the community came out in droves to watch the Coselelani Secondary School Annual Sports Tournament that took place at the school grounds on Saturday, September 22.
According to Motherwell NU 9 school headmaster, Langa Tshangana, the tournament turned into a huge success.
“The tournament drew many spectators, especially youth. Our society is faced by many social ills. There is an alarming rate of substance abuse. Today, youth were kept busy playing sport.”
The programme only catered for u/15 soccer and netball.
The seven schools that took part were Coselelani Secondary, Elufefeni Primary, Mdengentonga Primary, Fumisukoma Primary, Nxanelwimfundo Primary and WB Tshume Primary.
