Nemato Change A Life December 2019 Report

Following on from our feature in September, we are pleased to report that Siyabulela attended the 2019 Junior Trampoline World Championships in Tokyo a few days ago where he achieved a credible 11th place out of 40 participants in his age group in the double mini trampoline. As mentioned in our September report, Siyabulela’s achievement comes against his wholly inadequate training environment which makes it especially notable. Happily, our new trampoline is due to arrive from Germany shortly thanks to Change a Life and this will provide our young gymnasts with the incentive to reach greater heights.

The addition of the second Quantum mini-bus to our fleet, courtesy of Change a Life is having a major impact on the ability of our members to attend the variety of events which they need to participate in to improve their skills. Change a Life has also supplied our members with smart new jackets which they love to proudly show-off to the community. They are certainly the envy of the neighbourhood!

An aspect of our programme that we encourage and which adds tremendously to broadening the horizons of our members is visits by overseas volunteers.  We recently benefitted from an Australian volunteer whose coaching expertise in swimming, rowing and holistic children’s activities served to strengthen our available range of skills.

Our own Lifa recently return from a life changing year in Germany where he was a volunteer in a local school under a Lower Saxony exchange programme.  While in Germany Lifa discovered a passion for film and photography which he hopes to study at university next year.
