FIFTEEN children who are participating in United Through Sport’s programmes in Nelson Mandela Bay, achieved EP Colours to represent their province (state) in either rugby or hockey recently.

The children traveled to Paarl, Pietermaritzburg and Bloemfontein in the South African winter school holidays to play against the top young rugby and hockey players of the country, representing their province in the various national tournaments.

In our Junior School of Excellence (JSE) programme four children made EP teams. They are Amy from Astra Primary School (Under-13B Girls Hockey), Ezray from Astra Primary School (Under-12A Boys Hockey), Caleb from Bethelsdorp Road Primary School (PE North Under-13A Rugby) and Sylvan from Gelvan Park Primary School (Under-13A Boys Hockey). These children participate in extra academic, mentoring and sports sessions hosted after school by United Through Sport.

In our Senior School of Excellence (SSE) ten children made EP teams, with seven of these children coming from the same school - Alexander Road High School. They are Trent (Under-14A Boys Hockey), Wayvin (Under-14B Boys Hockey), Sachin (Under-16A Boys Hockey), Kayrian (Under-16A Boys Hockey), Caleb (Under-16B Boys Hockey), Kiara (Under-18A Girls Hockey) and Ethan (Under-15 PE Metro Rugby – Captain).

We are extremely proud of Kiara, who was selected for the South African Under-18A Girls Hockey team. She was also selected to represent South Africa last year, when she made the Under-17 SA High Performance Training Squad.

Known for her perseverance and grit, Kiara is a star on the sports field where she plays for her school's First Hockey Team.

Other SSE children who made EP teams are Storm from Grey High School (Under-21 Men’s Hockey), Kyra from Pearson High School (Under-21 Women’s Hockey), Clireez from St George's Preparatory School (Under-13A Girls Hockey) and Ethan, also from St George's Preparatory School (Under-13A Boys Hockey). All of the children are beneficiaries of the SSE scholarship and bursary programme.
