Sparrow Foundation School had a busy term, travelling all over Johannesburg
to take part in school athletic competitions. The events took place at Crawford
School, Lonehill (1st August); Bryneven School, Bryanston (15th August and
22nd August) and Fairways School, Illovo (5 th September).
The teachers also enjoyed the competitions, as they got to witness the
children from Sparrow gaining confidence and having fun whilst participating in various athletic events.
This was a great opportunity for Sparrow learners to be exposed to different schools and facilities in Johannesburg.
Although all Sparrow children were amazing in the races, Sparrow recognised two talented leaners: Ishobalam Sithole who came second in all 80M sprints in all of the different competitions, and Bryan Molemogi, who came first in all of the middle distance runs.
Thank you to Mr Thabiso for giving the Sparrow learners the opportunity to
visit all the different schools in Johannesburg for Athletics competitions.
