LEAVING a legacy by building a place where children can continue to play sport for years to come, was celebrated on 27 July 2018 by local sport for good organisation United Through Sport South Africa.
The official opening of the Isaac Booi Multi-Sport Court, an initiative of United Through Sport South Africa supported by The Swartkops Terminal PTY (Ltd), meant that eager children from Isaac Booi Primary School and the surrounding community could finally test out the court – which they had watched being built over the past few months. The children will be able to play netball, basketball and tennis on the court.
Isaac Booi is an anchor school of United Through Sport’s Junior School of Excellence (JSE) Programme, which is based in Nelson Mandela Bay. The programme nurtures participants with ability and determination to give them access to extra academic education, sports coaching and personal development at after-school classes.
“Making a sustainable difference in the communities where United Through Sport works, is a core priority and we believe this Multi-Sport Court will continue to offer children a safe place to play sport – for years to come as a legacy project. The court not only benefits our programmes we run at the school, but it is also there for the enjoyment and benefit of all the learners at the school as well as the local community,” said United Through Sport Director Nick Mould.
