Mr Peters (SGB Spine Road High) welcomed all the learners and highlighted the importance and historical significance of Youth Day. The programme of events were presented to participants – followed by the singing of our country’s national anthem “Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika” and “The Call of South Africa” (known in Afrikaans as “Die Stem van Suid Afrika”), simultaneously blessed by showers of rain.
Soccer kicked off at 9.30 with Spine Road vs Aloe High playing two matches (Aloe coached by Mr Fluers). 1st match won by Spine Road 2-0 whilst the 2nd was lost to Aloe 2-1. In recognition of their willing participation despite the harsh weather conditions, players were treated to a light brunch

Netball: Thanks to Aloe ladies for braving the cold – sadly, with no indoor facilities and an unsafe playing pitch ( wet weather), these matches had to be suspended.
Rugby: Ruck ‘Jol in partnership with Vuka Rugby Legends
Despite a heavy downpour, four schools braved the cold and wet weather to enjoy the games. A big thanks to Aloe High, Tafelsig High, Dural Arkam and the host Spine Road High players for you
sportsmanship . The competition took place in the form of a 10- A- side tournament with the first ball kicked off between Spine Road and Aloe. The host lost the game in the last minute of the game 7 to 5 with the second game also being a tight affair between Tafelsig and Dural Arkam – Tafelsig claimed victory by with a 7 to 0 final score.
After two hours of play and no respite from the heavy downpours, event organisers mutually agreed that the field was becoming a safety hazard for the participants and matches were duly suspended. Vuka Rugby Legends proceeded to present the players with a short life-skills programme to concluded activities.
Spine Road wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to participating schools Darul Arqam, Tafelsig and Aloe for their support. Also to Vuka and SA Rugby Legends for their assistants with match officials and first aid.
