Grade 5 netball vs Sefikeng School

Girls Prep  June 15, 2015 | Sport

Two Grade 5 teams played netball against Sefikeng School recently. The girls arrived and, realising that the Sefikeng girls were sweeping their court for the upcoming game, took over from them to give them an opportunity to get ready for the match. The girls then noticed that many of their opponents were playing in socks or were barefoot. They approached Mrs Eggett at half-time and asked if they could remove their shoes too. This was a genuine act of ubuntu, which was positive and uplifting for all.
